No fancy upgrades to the car for the first anniversary but give it a deserving wash which was pending for almost 2 monthsand renewed the insurance (struck a pretty good deal - close to 25k).
Wishes for the first anniversary, though late by months.
Did you not carry, the NCB from your previous car, over to the Creta?

Looked like there's one group "Aban" operating the tea estate. Other than that most of the plantations are not maintained.
Mainland Shanghai - how original!!

Yeah the Aban Estate is Tyford (Twford in the Brit era). My old employers.
Sadly the other tea gardens in the area - Vaghamon, Kotamullai & Bon Ami - managed by Duncans long ago and later MMJ Plantations - have fallen into bad times.

Thank you . Nope. Completely left that out during the booking. But struck a good deal with the SA on insurance.

Service Update - 20k kms

Here's some updates after quite some time. As I have an outstation drive later this month, decided to get the 20k service done. Here are some of the problems reported.

1) Wiper judder - this was report each time and they failed to rectify it. They tightened the wiper arm and cleaned the wiper rubber. Didnt test it. Hopefully it's done correctly this time else I shall change the wiper blades. To my surprise, am still running on stock wipers and does a clean job.

2) AVN update - They have updated to the next version. Not sure whether it's the latest version. These guys are pretty clueless when it comes to the AVN.

3) Fuel lid - Had difficulty in opening the fuel lid. At times, it refuses to open. They removed and cleaned the hinge.

4) Avoid wheel alignment/balancing and car wash - I always get this done at my regular place for this. But this time I just got the wash done (not a fan of service center washing. They tend to do it for a namesake) since I didnt have time to go elsewhere for the wash. Will get the alignment/balancing done in couple of weeks.

Details of the service bill:

1) Engine Oil - 5.3L x 258.5 = 1370
2) Brake Oil - 0.3L x 305.7 = 91.7
3) Air Filter - 441.9
4) Filter Cartridge - 1790.2
5) Cabin Filter - 301.4
6) Oil Filter - 400.1
7) Gasket Oil plug - 33.6
8) Grease Caliper Guide rod (brakes) - 163.9

Total Bill - 5440.79 including tax

After the service:

Like always, it's so good to drive the car after an oil change. The brakes also feels better now but still feels rubbery but something better than before. The wash was pretty satisfactory and the guy in-charge of the wash was there to get my feedback. The exterior was done well but the interiors had this "done in a hurry" look.

Odo reading - 18,400+ kms

Weekend Drive:

It came, I saw, We conquered - Our Hyundai Creta 1.6 Diesel SX(O)-dsc_0128.jpg

It was a long drive over the long weekend for us - 655 km to be specific. The onward journey took us through busy city roads, 4 and 2 lane highway, ghat roads with almost zero visibility. The return drive was even more fun with 2 different ghat sections to cover along with 2 lane state and national highways. All this with temperatures between 12 and 30 degrees.

Cars taking a breather to tackle the journey ahead (see the images following this )

This was what we had planned
