    Mine is also two years old now. It looks fine as of now, and I don't think it needs to be replaced in near future. Removing it car be a bit troublesome, as the platform fabric might come off while peeling off the lamination. So be careful when doing that.

    I am not sure whether you can buy the material online. I got it done from an accessory shop in Kerala during one of the trips home.

    Replaced the remote key battery after four years and one month.
    It was still "working". There was a delay in response, and sometimes no response at all. Replacing it was an easy job. No need to go to FASS and pay for labor. The battery (CR2032 )is available at almost all stationery shops.

    Front left tyre had only a shocking 15 PSI yesterday evening. Could not see any punctures though. need to check again.

    Looks like it's time to replace the tyres. They are near bald. May have another 5k left. I prefer not to push that much. I am undecided whether to continue with stock profile or get better ones. Stock was 175/17/R14.

    The best bet for the 14 inchers would be 185/70 R14. There are quite a few options across various brands and price range.

    If am not wrong, the 1.4 Emotion Pack comes with 195/60 R15.

    Yes better to change.
    And as Krishna mentioned, go for 185/70 R14, best size on 14" rim.

    Typo. It was supposed to be 175/70/R14.
    Thanks, Krishna! I had 185/70 R14 in mind.
    Mine is from the earliest batch of Puntos, which came with 175/70 R14.
    You are right :)
    Thanks, Ravi! Planning to change soon, most probably in the next couple of weeks.

    The day was welcomed by a punctured front left tyre. I couldn't see any nails or anything like that. Did see couple of cuts on the tyre. Maybe they are the culprits.
    Called RSA, for the first time in over four years. They put me on to conference call with their technician somewhere in HSR. The technician came in 30 minutes and quickly finished the job. They refused to accept any tips.
