Trrk,

You are right, the loss of air leak for 3 months is 2 to 3 points is real minimal. The other thing is it is not getting heated as much as the other tires after a run of more than 200Kms at one stretch. Rest I too don't know what to observe. If you tell some points I will do that after new year.

sorry to hear about that accident sir, but thats the way our traffic and heavy vehicles does.Good to see the way MSL acted to your car and things going underway.Have you asked for a replacement car til the time you are delivered your ritz, if not do ask they do provide one.Do update on your drlivery status and invoice you would pay once you get back your car,

Insurance is with Maruti Insurance. I will visit them to day and post the progress. It happened at at the age of 96 days.
Very Sorry to Hear that Navan Sir!! I know how it would feel like to have a Dumb Fellow Scathe our beauties.

Vey Recently in my case my Wagi (the way i call my WagonR) was rammed at the back by a Santro Driver. I will post the details of that incident seperately. The irony was, I was planning to write a Ownership review on my Wagi since she has traversed the 10000 mark but my first thread on my car is going to be an accident report!!

I have not used ntorgen in my car tyres. So I may not have any more points to add.

The air loss is minimal, as you have observed. Tyre temperatures are kept in check.

Since my cars run mostly in town, I have not bothered to try Nitrogen.

Hi Vijay,
It is nice to hear from you. Really the MSM is fast in doing the work. I left the car on 23rd evening 24th they got the Insurance surveyor inspected and on 26th they got the quarter panel from the MUL. It is a good speed. Once I left my Waggy in another MASS last year for a piece of AC grill it took a month to replace due to their carelessness in demanding the spare, then onwards I shifted to MSM and they are doing well tome. The second thing is that I have a habit of not driving other's car since 1983. If needed irequested the friends to drop me. Due to that good or bad policy if they offer also I will not take a car for use.

Hi Jason,
What a coincidence I too was about to start a new thread after 10K but unfortunately it happened in 9549. Let us console ourselves and make it better. Did you give it for repair. If so where did you give? How was your experience? I might get it in two days,may be on tues day after this week end.

MASS progress,

As told earlier they got the quarter panel. They have already fixed the new piece. The door is under repair and most probably they will do the painting to morrow. I was assured that it will be delivered for New Year. I too thought that if we pressurise then the job may not be up to our expectation and give enough time. Once it comes out I will stick the graphics and Post the photos and report on rattling, painting etc.

Hi Friends,

The silky is in the good old shape. The job was great and there is no difference between the original and the denting painting quarter panel and the rear right door.. The photo will be posted tomorrow. Only I could not get my Blue graphic sticker of the rear door and the rear quarter panel. That will be rectified soon. So your teambhp mate Navan is reunited with his lovely silky from tiday.

Navan good to hear that Silky is in perfect shape now. Once you get the car back let us know the amount of money you shell out for the repair and the quality of work. All the best.

Hi gaddi wale,
Thanks for your concern. The quality is really mind blowing. You may not believe! the amount I shell out is just Rs.1000. That is a great job with MSM Chennai and also the Maruti cashless Insurance. I went with around 4k and came with 3k in pocket for my New year expenses.I will post the pictures of both sides and you can find some difference.

Hi Members,

The Ritz silky silver is back on road and made a trip to Pondicherry and had the blessings of Manakula Vinayagar, Aurobindo and also the Nithyakalyana Perumal in Thiruvidandhai. You can see her back in the photo after the MSM repair work on the minimum shell out Rs.1000 excluding their claim from Insurance.

The Ritzy VDI ABS become 10021 kms old. We cannot consider her as the new bride. Now she is old enough to go into the Longtime owners review thread. So she too will appear in The Ritz VDI ABS 10000kms
