    Ciniju - you can use the Mothers protectant on tyres too. If you are looking for exclusive tyre dressers, megs, mothers and many other brands have them. I have no personal experience, but have heard water based tyre dressers are better than silicon based ones because silicon based ones leaves some residues. Again, not sure how much it is true.

    I agree about the service center guys - that is the same reason i started using the protectent.

    Yes yes Varun..pardon me. My upgrade was nothing different as I upgraded to stock OEM alloys & the tires opted were Bridgestone My01 Sports Tourer which again is not at all a popular model. It was too early to say that the tires I had opt for are good. But for me the ride & handling quality had a drastic improvement from the stock JK Tornadoes. It is very silent & wet & dry grip are also good. Dry grip I felt much better than JKs. But I cannot say how good it is when compared to Yokos, Michelins etc. So that was why I didn't update anything.

    Thanks Sun. Will definitely update the photos.:)

    What is the price of wiper blades? Is it curvy as original?Mats look good, but don't you think black is more practical considering maintenance?

    Sun the MRP of blades are 1000 Rs & 850 Rs for the 24" blade & 16" blade respectively. I had actually started a new thread with detailed report on the Wiper blades which is still pending for moderation. It is curvey as original & if the thread is not approved, I shall make a write up in this thread itself with more pics. Mat ofcourse black would look better. Star kagu mats had 2 designs called Indus & Atlas & now they have one more model called Sigma (http://Check here) . I had opted for Indus model due to High command pressure ;) & Indus only came in beige. Apart from the looks, the mats are very practical. The easiest to clean & wash & of good quality & around 1000 tp 1500 bugs cheaper than 3D mats.
