Last week, had a small trip to my relative's place in Chiplun, Ratnagiri district(Kokan). One-way drive of 231 kms. Took Pune-Banglore route till Umbraj followed by Koynanagar route. As usual it was very comfortable to drive Tigor. The car was rock solid at high speeds. The odo showed FE as 20-21. So it was around 18-19 which was quite good considering the bad roads and ongoing work apart from Banglore highway.

Although I have fastag (IDFC), it was blacklisted when I checked the status/balance day before my journey. Had to pay the toll in cash. Later I got to know from the bank's helpline the reason that it was registered through chassis no. which lasts till 90 days. After that, it has to be re-registered with vehicle registration number. I have not faced this issue earlier. Anyway, now I've mailed them the required details. Hopefully the status will be restored with 1-2 days as per them.

Rest it was a nice trip, after a long time. [:)] will post some pics soon.

I sent the bank(IDFC) my scanned copy of the RC and other details and now the fastag status is back to active. IIRC, this was not required with my previous fastag (ICICI bank)

Btw, I somehow found my apeman c470 dashcam. Fitted it in my car [:)] -

Routing the cable through headliner and A-pillar would be nice and clean.

Had 3rd servicing (1st year) done for my Tigor. Following were my questions/complaints -
1. I felt suspension was bit on harder side. SA checked and said it is fine, need not change it. Just asked me see the tyre pressure is not high. Actually I maintain it 32 from my regular tyre shop (nitrogen). Anyway, I'll keep an eye on it as I'll be traveling to my in-law's place this week.
2. I was thinking of getting NGK spark plugs fitted. On Tigor owner's whatsapp group, some owners have changed it to NGK and reported better pick-up, mileage and more linear torque. Recommended NGK model is NGK-lkr6d10e (iirc, this fits grand i10). Previous ones in Tigor are from Champion. To this the SA said my Tigor has Bosch ones (nov-19). These are recommended in the manual too. I believe this should be better than Champion. Any idea if they are as good/better when compared to NGK? Has anyone else changed those yet? SA is ready to change it anyway later.

No other issues from me. Engine oil and filters were changes as required during this major servicing. Even wheel alignment and balancing was done as covered during AMC. Total bill was Rs 631/-

Had 2 back to back trips to Ratnagiri (around 1200-1300kms total) with my wife and daughter. Boot almost full while traveling with them and almost empty when I returned alone. [;)] Got a very good FE of 23 (in actual 20). As usual it was very comfortable ride.

Just a question, I've completed more than 3k kms and started to feel that the car has got slightly more punchier. Felt it more while returning to Pune this week. Is it due to engine settling/settled down now?
