    Got the RHS ORVM glass installed @Rs 303 +labour Rs 75. Installing it is a DIY job but I was afraid of it falling off hence chose to get it done at FASS.
    I remember, last year, I had replaced glass (alone) of the ORVM of Manza which cost me Rs 600 +. It seems TATAS use steel inside the glass (LOL).

    It is as it was before. I never experienced jerkiness before the update.

    Anyways, rains are back in Pune.

    Nice looking pics of the Avvy in the rains, I wish the water beading was much more prominent. When was the last time the car was waxed? I hope one waxing session will bring out the effects of rain even more beautifully on the Avvy.

    Purchased a sun visor mountable tissue paper holder @rediff shop online COD. 20151012_163216.jpg 20151012_163150.jpg @399INR.

    Anyways, car has run 23 k km now, & I must say that "All is well". Recently visited Kaas platue, Sahyadri Ghat MH , famous for flora.
    My family was disappointed as there were more number of cars to see than the flowers. But I was not as I loved the driving experience under heavy fog & heavy rains alternatively.

    We decided to visit the Kaas platue after receiving some of its pics of WA IMG-20151002-WA0011.jpg IMG-20151002-WA0010.jpg IMG-20151002-WA0009.jpg

    But due to delayed rain the flora didn't developed as per expectations and in reality saw this rps20151006_091225.jpg rps20151006_091126.jpg

    However, still tried to get some flowers IMG-20151006-WA0019.jpg IMG-20151006-WA0025.jpg IMG-20151006-WA0034.jpg IMG-20151006-WA0013.jpg IMG-20151006-WA0029.jpg IMG-20151006-WA0024.jpg IMG-20151006-WA0021.jpg IMG-20151006-WA0015.jpg IMG-20151006-WA0035.jpg IMG-20151006-WA0011.jpg

    @Tornado have you attached mud flaps to avventura. ? MY local FASS is telling it cannot be attached. Is it true?

    @Subhendusc, posting pics of Fiat's mudflaps installed at FASS, cost was IIRC approx 1000 INR.
    20150628_172120.jpg You can zoom & see the words 'FIAT' embossed on the rear mudflap.

    I have installed reverse camera on rear regn. plate and screen is IRVM mounted.

    It helps to avoid stones or footpath edges kids lingering behind the car also gives nice rear view but while parking against wall I have to use traditional skills so as to avoid spare wheel cover touching it.

    Mefeels, cam +sensors is the solution so as to judge exact distance between the spare wheel cap & the wall behind .I was also going to install the same. But at that time, I also needed a DVR cam which is integrated in my IRVM mounted screen as I was thinking of appointing a chauffeur for my kids.

    Plan to appoint the chauffer was scrapped later on.
