    @fiatlover did your ever have to do any changes in the a/c or the headlamps..
    i have a '10 emo pack 1.4.. the a/c seems to be working.. but even if i set the temp to 20 or 21, it doesn't cool it enough.. Any suggestions for the headlamps and a/c.?

    Mine is the emotion version, so no option to set temperature. I usually keep it in recirculate mode. Though not super cool, it works ok. Just check if the AC channels need cleaning or whether the gas is on the lower side.
    As for headlamps, the stock headlamps are serving well. I never had to alter the factory fitted ones. Except that the low beam was really low, and I had raised it a bit.

    Time again for a running service. Visiting KHT tomorrow
    Concerns to be addressed:
    -Noise from rear suspension(mounting pads may have to be replaced)
    -Slight bent on the rear left wheel-arch, thanks to an i20 that hit from behind. Bumper needs realignment
    -Low fuel beep not working, may need some cleaning
    -Minor issue with the rear left power window. may need some realignment
    -A clean good wash

    Running Service expenses
    Labor charges are for fixing the coolant leakage and replacing suspension mounting pads

    Completing five years and 40k kms, scheduled service, and insurance renewal due this month.
    Nothing much to report, running trouble-free as usual. :)

    Congrats FiatLover, so your love story is 5 years old now ;)
    I must admit thats a very well maintained GP, and I am sure she must have given it back for taking care of her :)

    Drive safe & keep revving :)

    Cheers
