Finally spoken to Vijay - Kava Automobiles and ordered an alloy wheel for 4500 + 100 packaging and he has sent through sharma transport and collected it from sharma transport office.
Received the alloy wheel in good packaging. Installed it too.
Hope, it could not be a new one, mostly refurbished. But looks as new and perfect. No balancing or bent issue.
Sad story is, found another alloy wheel also got bent. so need to order one with Kava again.
Ordered an alloy wheel (Rs. 4500) and Roulunds Brake pads (Rs. 1100, earlier i bought for Rs. 950) from Kava.
Really VFM and recommend Kava for wheels too.

Finally changed my tyres with Continental MC5 195/60/15 today at my native.
I paid 5000 / tyre and quite cheap compare to Chennai price.
Wheel Balancing and alignment were included too.
Current Odo - 90980.

Initial feel is very soft and cushioned ride and Silver Streak back to usual ride.

No tyre noise altogether and i had been living with MRF ZLO for last 3.5 years and 45K kms. After 15K kms, there's a huge tyre noise and not bearable for last 10K kms. Tyre also got uneven and rough treads.

Will update here after 600 kms return journey back to Chennai.

Default Service @ 1.05L KMS

Finally Silver Streak has gone to service station to revamp @ 1.05L KMS.
Car has reached almost 95K in 7 years and time to change clutch, timing chain and brake rotors as well cleaning ERR, MAF sensor, Intake Manifold & Inter cooler.
changed all fluids and mechanically in top notch.

Timing Chain and Brake Rotor & pads have some life, so deferred from changing this time.

Clutch is now kind of feather touch even better than a new car and car is back to earlier drive ability after cleaning all necessary stuffs.

There's no shuddering at lower rpm and higher gear and nicely pulls like a loco.

Everything has been done in rightly fashion though the bill is not proper which i have escalated to fiat and in progress.

Service Bill:

What is ERR, MAF sensor, Intake Manifold & Inter cooler?

My car is now 7 years and 4 months old and i guess i should also get things done. It has clocked 90k kms and at times i feel the car suddenly becomes sluggish. Dont accelerate like it use to.

Please let me know what else can be done.

Thanks

Sorry, Typo it's EGR (exhaust gas re-circulation), MAF (mass airflow sensor) Sensor & Intake Manifold where carbon and mug has deposited which make your car sluggish.
Inter cooler which helps your car turbo to be running with cold air.
All of them help to run the car in good revs/acceleration.

it's good to clean these components in regular interval to keep the car in good condition.

Default Re: Change both Front Shocks

After 1.05 service, i have been getting a metal noise from front shocks at uneven roads.
Today went to Ramkay, OMR to check it and came back by shelling out 11.5 K

Both Elastic pad and struts have gone very bad and need an immediate change.
Now car is back to glide. Need to check rear shocks too at the earliest.

Silver Streak Linea :)-fiat-linea-service-front-shocks-change.jpg

So remaining things to get my car back as new.

1. Timing Chain replacement
2. Rear Shocks replacement
3. AC overhauling
4. repainting some area to hide scratches & dings.

Default AC Issues.

I have came to my native for Deepavali celebrations.
On the way, i have realized AC is not at all cooling as wished.
Cooling has been drastically down even on lower settings.
I feared of cooling coil and worst to be AC compressor change as car has crossed almost 99K without AC repair or gas refill.

i have given the car to my known AC repair shop and the person is very knowledgeable on AC works for all cars from Maruti to Mercedes.

He has taken a look and informed me either some leakage in the pipeline or cooling coil could go kaput.
After refilling with Air for 300 Psi, they have found a leakage in the nipple used to load and check refrigerant.
He has cross verified all AC plumbings and guaranteed that everything is good to go.

Finally the show end up with Rs. 1100 for new nipple, refilling and cleaning the blowers and some other related parts and a happy end

Now car is throwing bone chill air at 24C itself and i usually keep this temperature only.

Hope it will good till next service.

Default Completed 1,00,000 Kms

Hi All,

Finally i have achieved a milestone in my silver streak.
I have crossed a lakh Kms in 7 years as my driving has been drastically reduced after birth of my 2 kids.
To celebrate this, i have planned for 10 days vacation road trip to Kerala in my love.
wish to enjoy and visit most of the places from south to north of Kerala from calicut to Cochin and some hill stations in TN & KA too.

Already i have booked hexa and if everything goes well i.e drive & price. it will be in my garage by Jan 2017 last week replacing Silver Streak.
