    Pran it could be that your's being the old design model, price was on the higher side as Shams had written. From what I read from the brake pads thread I assume that the older model brake pads are available in cheaper price locally & hence you got it for a cheaper price. They might have got the rotor from TASS for Rs 2500 & they charged you 2600 . ;) . I am not sure whether there is a change in rotor design too from the previous model . But 950 Rs labor charge for the entire work seems to be ok for me . Pran I can assure you that you don't have to worry about the genuinity of parts used. I was a regular customer there for 2-3 yrs & I never had any issue with them . Well for the price we need to check with the local shops as well. Did you check out what make was the brake rotor ?Sometimes it could be a different brand other than what TASS is supplying.Maybe a genuoine brand like Bosh would also be supplying the same & the price could be on the higher side. Hey I am not trying to support the garage. I am just trying to find out what could be the reason for the higher price.

    BTW my dear Shams a Biiiggg CONGRATS to you.:up

    Enna villathanam.

    Could be Cinju. I enquired in another shop in Chennai and I was quoted 3000 for rotors which are imported. Even for pads they had two versions one at 1300 and another one at 3300.

    air filter at 690 is very expensive. You can buy the Vista/mazha QJD filter which is the same as of Punto from any spareparts shop and costs around 390 rs. Oil filter from Swift diesel can be used. Costs around 150 rs.

    Looks like our national engine has too many options that if we spend a little time doing research on the prices in different locations for different models we can maintain our cars for much much cheaper price.

    150 for oil filter :O, I paid somewhere around 300-400/-
