Default i10 smoothness

My i10 (1.1) had become super silky smooth after the third service a few months back.

But now, it doesnt feel so refined/smooth; its as if some kind of hardness has started creeping in the ride.

These is what was added during the servicing:

1 Speed Tech (Rs490)
2 Oil Treatment (Rs365)
3 filter assy -- engine oil (70)

Should i go for these again?

The 4th service is not due till Jan-end.

What is Speed tech?

Most of the times its all in the head,and care for your vehicle,that you start hallucinating about such things.

I agree. For such a short gap between two service intervals you should not be feeling that difference.

Also, 1.1 IRDE has quite a gruff exhaust note and rougher than the silky smooth Kappa engine.

Its unusual. Vibrations could be caused if you had hit some bump/broken patch of road at high speed. What this would do is throw the wheel alignment out of gear and the unbalanced wheel would cause some sort of vibration and uneasiness. The point here is, this can happen anytime, even the next minute after purchasing your car (and drive fast into a broken patch). By broken patch I mean some big brick or similar.
This is one point of view and not necessarily the right one. Im giving this option as you had mentioned that it had something to do with ride

Well naru, that's quite scary. I also have the 1.1 i10. Just got it's 4th service done. No vibrations what so ever. Besides the front right door rattle which was fixed and the parcel tray vibrating, which'll go out of the car soon.
I think it would be good that you get your car checked. Under body and all. Are you having un-even tyre wear? And yeah, what's speed tech?

I have always admired the i10 for it's refinment. Especially at idle there is no sign of the engine being alive.
How many kms has your car done? Getting a engine flush and oil change could help.

As the engine oil traps more and more crud, your engine will feel somewhat rougher than when you have fresh engine oil.
