One can also get it done at Adarsh Petrol Pump, at vile parle east, near Sahara star hotel signal or at BP pump at juhu, near chandan. The one in parle charges 30 per tyre and the one at juhu 25 per tyre i suppose.
I have been using nitrogen in my fabia from 5000kms onwards so far driven 28000kms. Must say it has made a difference in ride. It's more softer, smoother ride than the normal compressed air I had. the Sharp edges on the roads I travel could not be felt that much as compared to the normal air the tyres had. I just get them checked once in every 5000kms. Also, on highways the tyre stays colder in this heat, doesn't let the tyre heat up all that much compared to normal air.

The shop is Wheelworld in the Shah complex building below the flyover (over Vashi R.S.) . I get it filled there.

Agreed. You get 80% pure Nitrogen for free. It is all around up and is called AIR.

I filled up the tyres on my SWIFT ZXi with Nitrogen @ Discovery Tyres Borivili West (Dattapada) near TATA Steel for 100.00 Rs for all the 5 tyres (Including the spare). The procedure is they empty the air and vacuum?? the tyres to remove all the air and then refill them with Nitrogen!

Listened to the sales talk from the guy there, for the actual results! well time will tell, Will be going out for an out of the city drive 600+ kms. I will keep a log for refills, performance etc...

There is the sales talk and there is this article:

Of course, you can still go ahead and make the seller's day.

At least I have found that it does not require a refill for more than 3 months.

Perhaps this will help. See the executive summary and the initial statements here.
Of course, with nitrogen lesser pressure loss, but see the difference over 3 months and then compare with the cost.

I have been using nitrogen since 3 years in my car. I get it filled from tyrex at mulund who does not charge me for refills which are usually in 2-3 months or during allignment. I have till now not paid for nitogen refills at this place most probably because i am his regular customer.

I donot find any difference between normal air filled & nitrogen filled rides. However only checking tyre presure has reduced. Serious disadantageis if you get a puncture you will be forced to use normal air filled if nitrogen is not available.

The lotus petrol pump opposite Infiniti in Andheri has the option of filling in nitrogen.
