+1 to that i have had many very pleasurable interactions with the Pete's Crew especially when i brought my Pete's box and there was a mix up with the connectors. Simply loved the way they deal with customers

Completed 20000 km and 3rd service done .

@mods - please update the thread title appropriately.

As for the bill:
Summer Windscreen Wash - 92.31
3M engune oil flush - 337.77
Brake Pads - 1737.40 (P.S. Nothing was left in the pad)
Filter cartridge - 1309.50
Oil Filter - 307.27

Total + 12.5% tax - 3832

Have changed to synthetic oil called Chevron Delo 400 - recommended by the one and only tadu(Diesal Head) (Bought a 15L can for 3400.00). The car seems to have become smoother and a little more rev happy.

Had my first puncture today :( .

:( i was planning to sell that tyre at the buying rate

@pras - he he he he indeed

@KP : yeah dude. I got the change done as H.A.S.S itself. The dude there was quiet shocked to know that i got synthetic oil(15L) for 3.4K only. I dont know whether it is my driving or is it the pad. I remember you putting a snap of the worn out brake pads. Mine where worn out the same way too.

I remained in the garage for the whole day(took a day off from office to get the vehicle serviced under my surveillance). Took note of everything that was being done. For the record guys the servicing with washing included takes less than an hour for one worker.

I also was very surprised at the price of 15L of synth oil.

yeah i have also spent my share of the time in the A.S.S and yes the lions share of the time in the A.S.S is spent by our vehicles in waiting for a technician .

I was first confused as to whether it is synthetic or mineral or semi-synthetic but then when i checked out the sticker on the oil can it said synthetic technology. Even now i am not fully sure as to whether it is synthetic :P. Oh and by the way the guy delivered it to me at the service station itself

Can you please post the details or the link. I dont know if it is synthetic or mineral. If the can says synthetic technology what does it mean?

AFAIK the Delo 400 is definitely a mineral oil.

Make some drive plans so that u can meet him and see what it is. For pics u will have to wait for months.
Shyam is known to take all pics in RAW form(even from his mobile) then processes it in photoshop to resize them.
