    GRAND TOTAL :

    Cost/kms = 0.87rs/km

    What i could have lived with easily without repairs/changes
    EGR cleaning : 3600
    Fog Lamps : 3480 (The clamp was broken that's all and for that i replaced the whole assy)
    Under body coating : 1900

    New total : 24139
    New cost/kms : 0.63/kms
    =====================================

    NOTE
    the total includes all of VAT, labor charges and everything else that comes default when servicing is done.
    I could have lived without changing or tinkering around with small niggles but then its a FIAT and I'm passionate ;-)
    0.87rs/km is not bad at all ;-)

    - - - Merged Post - - -

    No more TASS for me.. I've already collected coolant , in due course I'm also going to decide whether to use FIAT recommended lubes or find an aftermarket alternative (purely based on availability and cost).
    My car has completed 3 years already and i'm done with the warranty so its going to be aftermarket service for me from now on..

    Sham, i was charged 1500 +tax for EGR valve and intercooler cleaning at KHT. Charges were for approx 4 hrs of labour. Not sure why you had to pay so much. Did they take 10 hrs to finish the work ?

    Hi,
    I got my Linea 1.3 serviced last week. It was the second service at 15000 kms and they had to replace the brake pad set along with other filters. The total cost of service was Rs.11,700. Is it usual whenever we do the second service?

    Please provide your thoughts and inputs.

    ^^ I think if you remove brake pad cost (~4K), the service cost is normal.
    If you provide break up, that might give better idea.
