3M choke and Carb cleaner- Rs.198.85
What the heck is this? What carb are they talking about. Can anyone explain?

251 for the power steering oil and 250 for filling it - that's nice.

And dude, how come i don't see an engine oil change on your list?

Hey Nitrous, Can I get the contact details of Kamlesh Patel's Electra? It seems that Sundaram Honda is screwing up. Another Honda 1.3 is due for servicing, may be I will try with this new guy.

Shanu: Need to go through the previous bills to find out whether it has been changed before that service. Its stunning to see they charge the oil cost just to pour it in.

Nobody does it here, be it Mangalore or Bangalore. These guys are making a bomb on labour charges alone.

Recently our Honda City (99 model, 1.3 exi) developed lot of noise while riding in the bumpmy road. Found out the problem to be in the steering box.

Got the estimate from Sundaram Honda

Replacing Steering box assy: 14k, Replacing Lower Arm: 10k, Replace caliper pins: 2k, Replace Shock absorbers: 7k, Wheel balancing and allignment jobs: 1.1k, Align silencer:0.5k, Carryout 60000k service with Labour: 11k.

Total estimate was 45600/-.

Took the vehicle to Electra & was told that joint ***** needs to be replaced & muffler noise needs to be arrested. The total estimate was 3.5K. Zeroed in the problem exactly as what Sundaram does.

Happy with this guy (chikki), not along because he had given the quote for the exactly attending the problem, just we spent 10 mins there.

I love this difference in attending the customers so quick.

THANKS A TON for RED ONE.
