@puntophile : Point taken. No offence or sarcasm was assumed anyway. You are correct in that different service centres seem to have different rates. Unfortunately, this is something which should be ruled with an iron fist from FCA India Corporate. But their laziness and indifference to processes makes this difficult. And when there is only one FASS in one town/city, then its a monopoly. We definitely look at our bills to ensure that we are not being ripped off. So you did end up paying 1.7 times the rate?
