Default Re: Hatch Back To "LUV" - My New Ertiga ZXi

Hi Kalinga,

You have one heck of a car detailing stuff stacked up. I can see one High pressure hand help sprayer/foamer(in red color) in your collection. I'm also looking for something similar. Could you please share from where did you get it ?

  • Ground clearance has increased to almost 8 mm.

Done a 1000 km drive (Pune --> Goa --> Pune) immediately after the Tyre change.
Now the car has awesome stability and comfort. This is the best size for the Ertiga. I wish Maruti should give this as standard fitment.

Now I have covered almost 7000 KM after the Tyre change. Maintaining 32 psi in all 4 Tyres.
Nothing to report as such. All is well till now. KMPL is constant. I did not feel any change in KMPL after the Tyre upgrade.
Current mileage :

Found an excellent car detailer in Pune. Which is pretty cheap and doing much more work than 3M.

Don't all K Series engines use 0w20 grade oil now?

The Ciaz manual specifies only 0w20 for the 1.4 VVT.
I believe 1.4 vvt engine needs synthetic oil. So I think they used ď5w30Ē grade engine oil.
I will confirm this with the MASS in my next visit.

I got that hand sprayer from Amazon India portal. The cost was around 500 at that time.

I choose the basic package of Aquatint for my Ertiga.
That Package includes:
  • Washing with high speed/pressure vapor
  • Interior vacuuming (Only Cleaning)
  • Mild cut polish with machine.
  • Spray wax on entire body & buffing.
  • All glass area cleaning.

I have spent around Rs.1200 for this. There is a paint shop near Aquatint, you can use that shop.

From the Ciaz owners manual, with the same 1.4 VVT engine:

Great to see some updates from your end. How much did the detailing set you back by? I am planning to visit them to get my cross detailed.
PS- I just saw the post above on the cost, apologies.
