What fuel type do you use? is it making a difference to your mileage?
A/C and ACC performance is very good . I will recommend ACC during summers or hot mid-days (also when there are passengers in the rear) and A/C during monsoons and winters, or at night.The pick up lag, when you use ACC instead of A/C, is evident only when you drive with a heavy foot. It will pass unnoticed in stop and go traffic and highway cruising.

I have used only regular petrol till now. So, cannot comment on the difference with premium petrol, if that's what you meant.

Packy poda is the name.

This is a sturdy mat, which will last long, unlike the Junk which NEXA is selling.This is available on flipkart.

The service costs were as follows:

1. Wire, Steering boot, pinion side - Rs 11.50
2. Gasket, Oil drain plug - Rs 4.60
3. Filter Assy, Oil - Rs 69.40
4. Screenwash 50 - Rs 23.40
5. MGO(0W20)-Shell - Rs 1087.36

CGST & SGST@14% = Rs 5.53 each
CGST & SGST@9% = Rs 104.11 each

Total = Rs 1416.00

Here comes the sad part. Before the service, while in personal use, some marks/dents/whatever it is appeared on the bonnet and the roof. The marks are similar and seems like the paint chipped off and exposed some white coating beneath.

The car was occasionally parked in busy streets. Still we are not able to make out how these happened. Looking for a simple solution to mask these defects and also to curb the damage from spreading.

It looks like some sort of an acid (a few drops) has fallen on the bonnet. It does not look like a dent, scratch, etc,. Please take it to the nearest 3M center. They maybe able to help
