June 2021 - Front Grill with Logo

Our grille was in good shape and needed only logo and was about to buy the logo, and it costed a whopping ₹1,405. @vishnu vichu only suggested buying the whole grille as it was way cheaper, the one without chrome was even cheaper by a couple of hundreds.

Kairali Ford has always been prompt in delivering spares on time. Grille was ordered at the time of buying logo and reached exactly in a week's time. Chose the one with chrome stripe as it goes well with black colour.

Radiator Grille - 8A39-8200-BD5ZCT - ₹979.00

Again, tons of part numbers. Under part number 9A39-8200-ABZJAC, same grille costs ₹1,237.00.

Condition of front logo, top layer starts peeling. Could've made a smoked logo out of it.

Dilapidated condition of rear logo, seems previous owner had replaced it with a cheaper fake one.

Ford's secret [evil]. They give confusing and not easy to find oil specs in their manual (WSS-M2C923-A1 or WSS-M2C913-B) and on the other side, they use Shell Helix Ultra Professional 5W30 fully synthetic oil.

Does your owner manual recommends 10W30 oil for petrol engine ? If yes, then how do you procure it? Isn't that difficult to find?
Ford recommended 5W30 for diesel engines of that era.

Ford recommends both 10W30 and 5W30 for petrol (and 5W30 for diesels) and indirectly mentions about using 10W40 (Note: If you operate your vehicle in temperatures below -20°C, you must not use SAE 10W-40 engine oil). [lol]

10W30 is available with many brands, but I think only mineral option is there, Motul 4000, Shell Helix, Mobil Super, Bosch, Petronas, etc.
