Update:

Car has now done 1.28L kms. It is currently 4 years old and running has reduced drastically. But now my new job has running of almost 100 kms daily so time to wake up the van from sleep and get it to its duty again.

Nothing much to report. It has met with 2 accidents in between (none of which was our fault :( ... ). Routine servicing is still going on on time and each service bill is same 7-10K. Many times felt like selling it but this car has stood the test of time and whatever we have thrown at it hence it is becoming increasingly difficult to part with it. Will share pics a little later.

If given a chance will you buy the ertiga again against the lodgy & marrazo as competition.
i hope all these 3 are now in same price bracket?
I recently spent a few days in the Marazzo and I really liked it. It is around 3.5L more expensive than top end Ertiga currently but it feels significantly bigger. Although let's wait for the new Ertiga to come to any final conclusions. [:)]

Latest update at 1,40,000 kms:

1. Now have switched to FNG for service. It will get oils changed now.

2. Added a bluetooth adapter as OEM unit doesnt have BT only AUX and I was bored of it.

3. Got chinese LED lights now. Night driving has improved tremendously.

4. Got tires changed to Continential MC5 at 195/60/R15 size. Previous Earth 1 had run 60k kms.

5. Got the car debadged from the rear. And clear portions of tail lights smoked.

6. Got a Quantum UK remap on the car. So now power figures are 110 bhp/235 nm of torque.

7. Got front suspension struts and lower arms changed.

Previously my dad was using it. Now it is mine so this is just a mild effort to make the car look like it belongs to a 25 year old instead of a 60 year old. [;)]

Can you share the product details and from where you shared them. I guess this is only for Phone calls.

Hi,

The Bluetooth adapter also plays music. The product is Tantra Fluke. A little pricey but I would quality of audio to be good and I have used it now some months now. So no issues.

Regarding the lights, yes, the highbeam is rather dismal. But low beam satisfies for most situations now so not too bothered. I got it from a friend who has upgraded to proper LED headlights.

The struts and lower arms combined was around 10k kms. Got it done at a FNG instead of authorised service station.

Attaching some pics of my car in its current state. Please don't mind the scratches and dents. Took these yesterday. And yes I do call my van : #RaceVan. [lol]

Got projectors in the headlights last weekend. Lovely transformation it has done to the night driving and overall looks of the car. Due to projector fitment, the headlight was opened up and thus gave me opportunity to get the reflectors and cowls painted to black.

The projectors are Morimoto FXR 3.0 with Morimoto HID 6000k bulbs. I am so far loving it. Will share pics in a day or two.
