Updates so far
1) Few hundred kms to touch the 50k milestone
2) After damping and tuning the amp I felt the sub woofer is no more a necessity (being in the boot of a sedan, it hardly matters). Removed it and powered the rear co-ax through the amp
3) Battery failed last week and got it replaced with Exide DIN50 (stock spec)

Vehicle is due for service and I'm in a dilemma if I should go to Nissan A.S.S or get it done at my regular FNG with better oil at lesser overall cost.

Running on stock tires, it should cover another 10~15k without any effort (few of my colleagues did 70~80k with stock BS tires) But considering the age and the noise, I'm looking to replace them with 195/65R15 MC5 or Michelin Primacy 3st

Vehicle is due for service and tire change.

Skipping the A.S.S as the vehicle will be out of warranty by this month end. From now the vehicle will be "FNG Thunai" (Translate: with FNG support)
This summer, I'm blessed with a Nissan Sunny XV Diesel. 5 years / 70k km update-img_6314.jpg

Current BS B250 have enough thread left out, but they are already over 4 years old and covered 50k km. Swapping them with Apollo Alnac 4G 185/65R15. Tire upgrade is always in mind, but I have some workouts for 'Plan-B'. I will Keep you guys posted.

Completed service at 51k km.

With FNG the overall service cost has come down and here is the breakup

Oil : 1500.00 (HP Neosynth Semi synthetic 4.5L from Amazon)
Filters : 1905.00 (Aditya Auto store - Coimbatore)
Labor : 500.00 (Bosch car service - Maraimalainagar)
Total : 3905.00

New tyre fitment & Wheel Balancing costed 500.00 INR at Jegajothi Tyres - S.P.Koil (I'm still skipping the alignment as I don't face any issues related to alignment. I keep monitoring the vehicle behavior and tire wear)

These are the comfort oriented ones? How are they? I changed mine to Hankook and increased the size to 195/60R15.
Was also checking your audio thread. It looks great. Have half a mind to do the same for my car. Couldn't find the DLS ones yet though. If you don't mind, can you PM me the breakup cost of the amplifier and the speakers?

Neutral tires, so far so good

195 section width is perfect size for this car. I was looking at 195/65R15

What I have is only the entry level set-up that satisfies my need. If you are looking for better audio quality, stay away from all the products that I used

DLS speakers are little difficult to source these days, available with few dealers at Coimbatore though.

Some new gift after my friend had the car for a day
This summer, I'm blessed with a Nissan Sunny XV Diesel. 5 years / 70k km update-img_20181120_191143.jpg

Usage these days are very minimal as my daily office commute is less than 3km one way. Marching towards 60k milestone

5 years and 70k km

This summer, I'm blessed with a Nissan Sunny XV Diesel. 5 years / 70k km update-1.jpg

Quick summary
- Completed the 70k km service recently, including the drive belt and timing belt change(skipped during 60k service)
- Few changes in the ICE (Android HU & Speakers) were rolled back to upgrade ver 1.0
- 185/65R15 swapped with 195/60R16 and diamond cut alloys

Failures so far
- AC Cooling coil failed after 60k
- One of the front strut is leaking recently

Nissan A.S.S
All the services were done at Ramani Nissan - Tirupur except one scheduled maintenance and Cooling coil change. I never faced any major issues / dissatisfaction with them. Only improvement area I noticed is Water wash. Sometimes I ask them not to wash the car and handover to 3M which is at next building. Many times SM / SA offered free door step delivery, which is 15km away.

In my experience Nissan maintenance cost is very much reasonable and way less than Honda. 70k service costed less than 14k (including the timing kit & drive belt)

So far it's a satisfied experience with the car and A.S.S as well.
