My car has come back from Freak accident repair in pristine condition.
Replaced the Front Grill and repainted the Bonnet and Front Bumper, so the existing bulges also gone.They worked on it too.
I spent Rs.2000 for 50% Grill and Rs.500 for Insurance cliam.

plan to go for 3rd service this week or next.

Guys,

Can you play the media player with the Key in STOP position or does it need to be MAV? AFAIK you should not spend long with the key in MAV as it drains the battery?

Media Player would play when the key is turned to MAR position and not in STOP position.

Hence I think its better to avoid playing for long when the engine is not on, to negate the risk of darining the battery?

I notice that the front alloys are getting really dirty with what seems like a black oily compound... from the disk brakes?

Is this normal? Can some body suggest?

I have given my car for 3rd service today.
Clutch Slave Cylinder is changed in all cars under warranty as the new CSC comes with Metal rod replacing plastic one.

Again, i have replaced my Front Disc pads.
They ask for Labour Charge Rs.450 to change it.
But i don't have any idea, whether we have to pay for it though our cars are in Warranty period.

Guys, throw some light.

Yes for brake pads replacement you have pay the labour. But I think 450rs

Default 3rd Service Bill

I have attached my 3rd Service Bill.
The only changes in the bill is Fuel Filter price.
The older price is Rs.826 and now the price is like a bomb Rs.1768 that too without Sensor.
I don't know, whether this is the exact price.
Please let me know guys having DSL Linea.

Again in my 3rd Service, Instead of pollen Filer they have used Wire Mesh Filter which is very cheap compare to Pollen paper Filter and as per SA, this gives more Airflow and easy to clean it to reuse.
We hae to check that too guys.

Can't believe any one especially in Service front.

Enjoy and Drive Safe

Karthik, The driver side rear quarter Door-Window chrome beading had fallen off somewhere on my ride. Do you have any idea of the price of it in chennai. I enquired here in Bangalore and they say it is around 814. I felt it a bit higher price here.
Or, is there a way to get it online?

1. 4L engine oil - did they use 4x1L cans and give you the balance oil after filling 3.3L?
2. CSC change - why its paid? I have got my CSC changed FOC after I shot a mail to FIAT
