Re: Bought New Ertiga VDi

Update

30k kms service done & i have taken service AMC from dealer for 3 services, 30k, 40k & 50k kms service. total cost of AMC is INR Rs.19600/-

i am surprised to see front disk pads as even after covering 29k thay are still able to run for another 10k kms or more [surprise].

Added new active subwoofer as it give enough bass to enjoy great music, already installed front component speakers. Also purchased a usb Bluetooth music receiver
to play music from my phone.

door weather seal started making noise due to less lubrication so i used silicon spray & now my LUV runs like new [:)]

Wow Praveen ji,

The Ertiga looks Smashing The hard work that you have put into is just phenomenal, It really paid of well[clap], And Can you Elaborate what you did and like what polishing material did you use?
Your Car has been maintained so well, It looks Gorgeous...

And AMC Means the Maruti Service Package?

What package? Can you Give us it in detail like what pack and everything about it? As am planning to Add my swift with the same Service package scheme.

May i Know your car's current ODO Reading and Mileage (AVG)?

Awesome car, Awesome Maintenance, Awesome Thread!!!! Keep up the good work bro[thumbsup], I've Subbed to your Thread, Keep us Updated...

Regards,

FordFiesta1.6

As told by Alpha active sub-woofers have inbuilt amplifier & good thing is that it also have a function that power off sub woofer when ACC is not on & save power. Bass is enough for a hatchback or cars whos boot space is open in cabin, not recommended for sedans.

Thanks Dear
I will clean my Cars in every 15-20 days with full inside & outside cleaning.
for interior cleaning i use wet tissue & if there is some hard stane marks then i will wash that area with water mixed with Ezee (that we use to wash woolen cloths ) & after that i will clear with wet tissue & apply 3m interior police.

for exterior i am using waxpol liquid polish & i am satisfied with the results i am getting.
