Engine Oil i meant , and the breaks were cleaned .
Gear oil wasnt changed .
Sorry cant provide the break up cost now because the bill has already been forwarded to my office , but i would be able to tell you the cost of the diesel filter and the air filter (because these were changed a week later , i.e a couple of days back ,as it was not in STOCK when i had sent it for servicing.)
The Air Filter Cost just under Rs. 300/-
The Diesel Filter was just under Rs. 900/-

I believe the gear oil needs to be replaced at 20K according to Swifts services schedule so please get that done.

900 for the diesel filter ? I thought it was 300 odd rupees ?

The petrol filter is the cheaper one , diesel is approximately that much.
BUSA would know.

The car has done 33k kms (in 11 months) , Have FINALLY upgraded to 185/70 R14 , Potenza G-III's . . .
"GLUE" - thats the word.
Ride quality has improved a bit , but not that noticeable cause the suspension is old now . But overall the tyres are VFM . (paid Rs. 12,800/- for a set of 4)

This car has an engine to die for , in terms of response & acceleration it is the same , u can only feel the dip in performance once it due for service i.e. once every 5000 kms .

Long term wise i feel the engine going a bit noisy , and the refinement levels are not that upto the mark , but still far better than the normal Tdi engines.

Good you moved to the GIII's and an ideal size too, perfect balance between handling and comfort. I run the same tyres too.

And 33 K in a year, dude that's some serious fun you've been having with that machine . I managed 28 K in a year and it's just been so much fun.
