asked me to blow it through the disposable straw attached to the device. After my blowing, the straw was thrown out off the device.
That is good. Then it appears to be safe, (of course unless they intend to reuse that straw later on ,on some poor soul, just to save on gov supplies).

Charging Station Installed

I ordered BoschC7 battery charger on 12 Aug 2021 with Boodmo, costing ₹ 6,119 and got it delivered on the next day. Today, I wall-mounted it, using Bosch drilling machine and tested it. After connecting it to the wall socket, in the first few minutes the charge status increased from 25% to fully charged [OK] and the battery was charged at ~13.5V continuously. After a couple of hours, when I checked, it was trickle-charging by flashing on the '∞' symbol. It was intermittently charging every minute or so with the charging voltage ranging between 13.7V and 12.4V or so. Right now, my other battery charger, CTEK is trickle-charging my Thunderbird 500 in Chennai.

Today, I received Hella Chrome Trumpet Double Horn Set, costing ₹ 1,209 from Amazon. I liked the trumpet horns. Since Blue Diamond has already completed the warranty period, I need not bother about cutting and splicing the wires. I drove to United Motors Bosch Service, Rajajinagar, Bangalore for fitment. The front grill, bumper, etc. were removed for fitting the horns. Two technicians took two hours to complete the job. Apart from this, Blue Diamond required some attention too. The wiring for front and rear dashcams and HUD were not fully concealed as it was done by me at home. So, I requested them to conceal the wiring fully behind the panels, A, B and C pillars. Also, the battery tray had some salt deposits, which needed through cleaning. The technicians took another hour or so to complete these tasks. The owner, Mr Dhiren Mehta suggested rubber coating of the tray and fixtures to cover the corroded areas. I agreed. He himself came over to the washing area and sprayed the coating on the battery tray. On the whole, three hours well spent for the upkeep of Blue Diamond. I paid ₹ 1,414 including spares [wire, connectors, clips, etc.] and labour.

Is the Horn casing metal finish(Chrome) or is it metal?
The front casing is made of plastic and the rear portion is of metal.
I loved the tone.
Thanks. I compared 3 different trumpet horns of Hella, Bosch and Roots and selected Hella, although it is the costliest of all, because me and wife liked its tone. [:)] [:D]

I am looking for mud flaps for my Nexon. I enquired with dealer and one shop in near my home in Bangalore but seems it is out of stock. I checked on Amazon too but wasn't sure if would be perfect fit for Nexon 2021 XZ+. Please do suggest any leads on appropriate mud flaps.

Many times, I could feel something touched while pressing break/clutch on road with full of stones. I guess, Nexon do not have underbody protection (not coating) cover. Has anybody got it done from after market or show-room? Hope getting this done won't have avoid warranty.

Another Chennai>Bangalore drive: 4 hours 46 minutes from home-to-home. Non-stop. Left Royapettah,Chennai at 00:20 hours today and arrived Basaveswara Nagar, Bangalore at 05:06 hours. Didn't bother about fuel efficiency. Enjoyed the drive. The fastest one. [:D][cheers]

is this B6 car as in many BS diesel cards there is issue of DPF adblue clogging etc
No. Mine is 2018 BS4 one. No DPF regen issues and no warning beeps for speeds above 80 and 120 kmph. Also, mine has stock rear fog lamp, physical control buttons on the infotainment panel and backlit window switches on the driver side, which the BS6 model doesn't have. The only feature I am missing is the cruise control, which the BS6 versions have.
