Question 1,00,000 kms service

Hi!

My zen (carb) will be completing 1L kms soon and will be getting serviced soon. What are the points to get checked in a car when it completes 1L kms? I had the suspension overhauled and clutch plates changed at around 85K. Anything else i should get checked? Any engine treatments that i should go for? Basically over and above the normal service, is there anything extra that should be checked in a car when it completes 1L kms?

Cheers
Amitoj

Thanks Jaggu!
Actually i want to get all the small dents and scratches (thanks to delhi traffic) also removed from the car and restore it to its old shining glory... but i am not sure who would be able to do a good job of it.

Cheers

change all the belts,the plugs,plug wires.
if possible change the entire wiring .u can get it done at any MASS.it shoul;d cost around 5K.
then change ur cables--accclerator,clutch,gear shift.
get a decarbonising done.
change ur wheel bearings,check your steering


change your entire braking system.
aslo as your seats are too old ,why not change your seats to those of the new zen.


check your engine mountings.


and its high time you get a free flow exhaust .


and Get rear seat belts

hehhe,
dear mohit,
i feel if amitoj doesnt do what i said,then he will be changing the engine for sure

regarding the body,i think the autorickshaws and the 2-wheelers will take care of it.
