Oil Filter + Gear Fluid + Brake Fluid + Radiator flush + Coolant + plugs combined will not set you back by more than 1k and its better to stick to the service station for this but if you want to save up then you can opt for aftermarket stuff from Opera house which is quite some distance from your house (New Bombay) and you wont make much difference I suppose. Make sure you get Spark plugs with the correct Heat range for the Optra.

I guess i will leave all that to the service guys, including the sparks.

Well i will be going to Opera for Mobil1 and Abro.

Optra takes in 4 liters of oil(3.8 in the engine and 200ml in the oil filter)

Edit - Any inputs about KnN Oil Filters? The service guys at GM told me that a KnN air filter is not a problem but please dont change the oil filter to KnN.

Bump. Guys is it ok if i put 5W40? Since Mobil1 dealership doesnot have 5W50 and service is tomorrow.

Flush i am not buying since GM uses OWS(German) flush.

He was saying OWS, Oozze.. LOL
