For me, the weights used were the same type but stuck in different position based on the machine's suggestion. If the weight to be used in steel wheels were used in alloy wheels, it needs to be taken care of - as per my limited knowledge in this topic.
Yes, these weights were the ones which were used along with the other type as well. Lesson learnt: Dont do alignment at service centers!!!

Completed one year of ownership yesterday. Have covered ~23000 trouble free kilometers. The only issue which cropped up during this period was the check engine light issue which was resolved by changing the brake switch. The overall mileage is around 15 kmpl for both city and highway driving. Renewed the insurance for 31k with TATA AIG including zero depreciation cover.

Everything is going well and touch wood, hoping for the same experience to continue in the coming years as well!!!

The car is nearing 25k kilometers now and the going is good!!! Nothing much to update on that front.

Yesterday in Chennai, there was a car rally organized with the theme "Rally for rivers" initiated by the Isha foundation. I took part in the rally under the family category. There were 2 categories, General and family, family being anyone in the car with a kid less than 14 years.

This was my first time at a rally and I must say it was great fun. Drove around 50 kms in the city with the route being charted out across the waterways of the city and it was a pretty good experience. Finished 18th of 64 family participants . Saw another BHPian car too at the rally, a Honda Mobilio.

Did anyone else from Chennai participate?
