    Got the 60,000 km or 4th year service done in 2.5 years, on 17 July 2015.. Spent 14,950, replaced the oilsbrake pads, shimming the discs, changing 2 of the three belts (alternator and one more). The third one, timing belt, or chain, I don't remember was changed in wRranty, free of cost.

    The previous evening, I noted that rear right tyre was loosing air. Filled some air using the newly acquired Coido electric pump. And took it to tyre shop. He quickly found the nail on the border between the sidewall and the bottom of the tyre.

    Fixed it and proceeded to Ponmudi for an outing with office colleagues.

    I align and rotate at every 5000 kms and last time the folks have interchanged the rear tyres while fitting them back. Ie, they were rotating backwards instead of forwards. Got them fixed right during the free alignment correction at 1500 km after the alignment.

    Sourced a dashcam (Mini0806) and dash mount (Exomount Tablet S) from USA through colleagues and did DIY installations by myself. Not much of great DIY as such, but, doing something by self is a little satisfying.
    Mini 0806 cost 110 USD and Exogear 50 USD. With an 128GB micro SD Card for another 50 USD, in total I spent abou 12,000₹

    Good updates there @limraj . 60k is quite a good running considering the time span of ownership. Why the timing chain replaced in warranty?
