    My daughter went with my sister to her in laws house and I used the freedom to change the almost dead battery(run for 70000km/3year) with a new Amaron 55Ah Flo battery. Total debt to the pocket was 4800₹ for battery and 450₹ for the orvm.

    10 Jan 2016 Chimmony dam, Thrissur, Kerala

    Been to this dam with some relatives. It was a good experience except, while taking a reverse, due to my negligence, I hit a pole and dented the boot. I soon fixed it.

    31 Jan 2016: 29.5km/l, my record.

    Got my car de dented at Alleppey and collected it and then drive to home.
    I soon noted that the car was giving excellent FE, also helped by less traffic on the highway. Started at 7:45pm from Alleppey and till Attingal it gave an FE of 29.5!!! For the first time range showed beyong 1000kms.

    I was worried about the clutch being tight and asked them to check. They said it was Ok. My left thigh was getting some pain and later I bled the clutch from the advice of another fiatian colleague.

    24 Feb 2016: headlights changed to Philips Extreme Vision+

    I had been thinking of changing to better lights as in highways many of those senseless drivers blind me with high beams. I do not want to attack them but, switching to stock high beam evokes almost no response. Now with EV+ things are better: if I also switch to high beam many respect it and respond with low beam. Though many of guys still continue in high beam

    Before: Low, High

    After: Low, High
    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1460196371.296200.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1460196426.266361.jpg
    I would recommend EV+ being the best results under legal limits. No wiring or other equipments required.
    Dent to pocket was about 2800₹, sourced via amazon

    04 Mar 2016: Clutch bleeding and WA/WB at Mohandas Fiat, trivandrum

    Visited Mohandas for the first time after the rumours of them closing and the experience was not better.
    I had asked them to do clutch bleeding and the SA was at sea for what is it. Had to explain him for removing air bubbles.
    I also did wheel balancing and alignment, routine for me at every 5000 kms. Recently I get it done from FASS only as the car had a problem of rear wheels going out of alignment and that can only be corrected at FASS.

    This time the car has a slight right pulling and when reported, they asked money to fix it. Usually, they would correct any issues from the alignment without charge and I see this as their attempt to make the customers unhappy and turn them away.
    I have escalated to fiat and are discussing with them

    25, 26, 27 Mar 2016 : Family outing to Munnar

    During Easter we drove to Munnar. Though it was not cold, we had a good time. We stayed in African Safari Tent, took a jeep safari to not so popular places around Munnar and took an elephant ride etc. Saw actor Suraj Venjaramood and family overtake us in Q for the ride.
    My kids travelling in car seats together for the first time. Didn't go too well.

    19 Apr 2016 : Right pulling was resolved at Mohandas Motors, Free of charge, finally.
    They had interchanged the front tyres and that was the basic issue.
    However a tyre change is recommended. The tyres have done more than 42,000 kms now.
    Good investment on Yoko A drive R01's for 28,000/-.
    I'm looking forward to Michelin P3ST.
