That m800 is very lucky to have such an owner.
BTW,could you please tell me whether newer car comes with OEM anti rust treatment.
Thanks. And no, some cars still do not come with anti-rust treatment. Guess, it's another part of cost cutting.

Great, I too had the same problem got the whole chassis painted, I dint know about this anti rust coating, what's the price\cost for this..
I'm not sure about the costs. I think it was much lesser than five thousand bucks.

Hi Vibhor, I wanted to ask you one thing..
When you have changed the headlamps to type 3 why not change the tail lamps too ?
I was thinking to add them too but later shelved off all the plans and decided not to perform anymore accessorizing unless necessary.

Maruti cars when they are launched they do not get much acceptance either because of shape , color etc reasons, but with time they prove their worth and their visibility increases on road.
My M800 completed its 15 years last year and I sold it off, but even after being 15 years old and carburetor type engine it gave a milegae of 20kmpl on highways and smoothly attained a speed of 110 kmph. It did not have a power steering but still it was very smooth.

Thanks. I will answer it soon. Back to the 800, this is one of the recent pictures. Those bumpers have developed the obvious scratches; require a touch up perhaps.

Yes. Both of them are nice cars and I really admire them.

I assume it’s about Verna replacement. So when’s the good news?
