Thanks Csentil and Navpreet.
Heres the bill:
Engine Oil 4.2lits Rs. 785.30
Oil Filter Rs. 105.40
Drain Washer Rs. 16.74

They did suggest Synthetic oil. But, I declined for now.

Overall, a very good experience (for a change) with the A.S.S.

Yup. Just got my civic serviced. Cost me 912/- They've increased servicing cost in Bangalore now by 200/- otherwise it would have been lesser. Cost of labour in Bangalore is too high was the reason given. Those who own other cars are quite astonished on the low maintenance costs for an expensive car like civic.

Smile Another Civician!

@ shuvD: Congrats on your new acquisition. The car looks awesome after the mods.

I myself got my Misty Violet 1.8 V M/T baby two weeks back. Been mostly driving in Bangalore traffic - the odo is at 330km. Low-end torque seems to be rather insipid, especially in second gear. Has anyone else noticed that? Maybe it will get better after the 1st/2nd services...

That's how it is. The torque is low in 2nd gear. The gear ratios are high and that's how you need to drive it.

Sometime back I got the fog lamp projector thingy for around 7k.
Car's done 6700 kms and is doing fine. Wish it had some more power.

Last week, I did a 500 kms round trip. Thankfully, she didn't bottom out on the nasty SH. Got 10.22 kpl with slowish driving.
