Latest update on the tyre pressure on MRF.
I have now moved on to 32psi after 29000kms on the odometer.

The ride is smooth and not bumpy the way it used to be over 29psi when the shoes were new. I believe the walls have softened enough by now and higher pressure is needed to keep the vehicle gliding.

Changed tyres to Goodyear Wrangler AT/SA 215/65 R16 (Stock size) at 40000km on the odometer. Ride is plush and looks good. Maintaining tyre pressure between 30 - 32ps.

Bought them online from TyresNMore. They did a real good job and friendly.
Got best quote compared to outside dealers. They also threw in free wheel balancing and alignment. All done at door step with they're fully equipped mini truck.

Odo is around 46000 km. A/C gas leak. On inspection at service centre they found the leak at vaporiser. Something like this is a first time in my history of vehicle ownerships. I have seen gas leak in flexible pipe and connection points, but never in core components.

The component looks like a radiator and sits behind the centre console. No chance of accidental touch. Replacement and labour cost around 9.5K including labour, gas and filters. The component itself costs 5.4K.

With this I'd also like to send my appreciations to the Trident Renault Silk Board service guys, specially Mr.Guruprasad (SA) and Mr.Santosh (Manager), they have not disappointed me with their work anytime, they do their best.
