'2 & 3' when there are people in the read and heavy load in the boot

Your observation

'@ 0 : Is the light fouced max far
@ 3 : light is fouced close on the road.'

Holds good as the load in the rear increases the nose pitches upward and this correction will then make the beam level with the road.
The manual on the 1.6 (which I have) says something to the effect as below. It should be the same for the 1.3 MJD

0 - When only driver is present
1 - When driver + one passenger (could be rear or front)
2 - When driver + 2 passengers
3 - When driver + more than 2 passengers
Hope this helps
However you really do not need this setting in city driving but on long highway drives. It helps as the beam is adjusted.

The logic is simple. When fully loaded, car sort of bends backwards (more loaded rear) so headlight beams go higher than normal. The levelling device (0-3) helps you rotate them downwards.

3 is basically max downward meaning even with full load, beam on road and not skyward

Zak I am not sure if it is advisable ,
But yes it brings extra shine to car and saves the colour from getting faded under the Sun.I have done it in mine so I know the difference.

Yes it is advisable since the regular paint of the car under a hot sun will start fadin sooner as the paint starts oxidising with the heat absorbed and hence a external coating is preferred to protect your Car paint!

3M treatment is better than Teflon thats what i've heard from the experts It may cost you around 3-4k i think..You may go through some threads regarding the same!

Cheers~

Even i too had a bad experience with Tata-Motors (Chennai)

They took two days for 1st service (Including a little bit painting job in Bumper). I could see a little amount of paint sprayed in the headlamp

After service i was eager to check for engine noise and pickup.
I was wondering whether they have changed MJD engine to Indica's Engine.

After busy Traveling through the weekdays, Just now opened the Hood To check whether Indica engine is there or not

I could see MJD engine, but none of the Oils / coolant are topped-up.
I called up the service guy and i am on the way to VST to check whats gone wrong.

I need to install autocop or something similar for my MJD but don't know where to get it done. I also read here about the compatibility problems with third party security devices, do any one have some suggestions and price indicators?

Thanks @jazzy but I was thinking if we should only get it done from the dealer as I don't know if we they have adapters for palio wiring.
And can I have the number and address of Green tracks? Do I need to book for service ahead of time?

Got a Call from Tata-Motors/Green tracks saying that they found the issue to be with the faulty tyre which they have replaced it with a new one.
will drop in some time in Green tracks and get it picked up.

Or
