Default Need recommendation: Santro oils and additives in NCR

hi guys,
What is the better gear oil (is any additive needed?) for Santro gearbox. I learned to say no to engine oil change at A.S.S and instead am going to go for Magnatec (1000 rs for 3+0.5 litres. is the price OK at khan market?)

I also tried to look for OWS additives - 210 for flush and 360 - however no one in Khan market seemed to have them. Does anybody know where to source them in NCR and how much would they roughly cost?

Do I need one bottle of flush or 2?

thanks a lot guys

well I seriously doubt you would get good prices in Khan Market. I would prefer to put my money in Karol Bagh.

Why? How many kms has your car run? If it is a petrol, flushing should be done at 50K as petrol engines run clean.

gd1418- 85K. This is the first time I will use either STP or OWS flush before refilling engine oil. However, that is a nice point you bring up - I though I can.. or rather *should* use flush before filling engine oil. Do you mean, the next time I should not be using flush.

If you are residing somewhere in north delhi then "Singh petrol pump" opposite to State Bank Colony, runs a full oil and filter change workshop. However, he also stock various engine flushes and wipers. He also undertakes polishing and interior cleaning jobs, though i haven't tried them. Iceing of the cake is the labor charges are nil i.e 0 Rs.

Only glitch is being associated with IOC they ain't authorised to sell Castrol products.

Before the price hikes, I paid 950 bucks for a 4 litre can.
Today,1000 bucks for 3L can +0.5 litre pack sounds normal.

hey guys... thanks a lot for all the recos.
Kapil - I hope the speedworks guys have some outlet in Delhi as well.

Thanks for the petrol pump recommendation - but I'll need to look for a good one in South Delhi/Noida.
