First highway run after service. LH fog lamp cover fell off somewhere. Car performed really well, then when I floored the pedal, suddenly started losing power and yellow coil warning light starts blinking when even I am in excess turbo range. Somehow managed to reach home, drove the crippled car some 50+ km. Quick scanned revealed some issue with turbo. Started searching common issues with turbo and the cost incurred and the dilemma came of disposing off the car due to the high cost incurred. Took the car back to the garage and on inspection they found the hose to be cracked causing all the trouble. Ordered hose right away. Turnaround time was around a week, car was still with us, in usable condition. Only power and mileage drop.

Total burn - ₹ 6750.00

Still there is the thought of replacing the car. Zeroed option is EcoSport, but chances are 50/50.
