    30k service - What all needs to be done?

    My 1.3 MJD GP is due for the 30k service this week. As per the owner's manual, the following major tasks needs to be performed apart from the usual checks:

    1. Fuel Filter - Replace - I have read about the new pricing for fuel filters with sensor and without sensor. I am totally confused about which one is the correct replacement in my case?? Need help here.
    2. Air Filter - Replace
    3. Oil Filter - Replace
    4. Engine Oil - Replace
    5. Pollen Filter - Replace - I have been reading about this new wiremesh filter which is supposedly cheaper than the paper filter currently being used. Any comments about its efficacy??
    6. Wheel Alignment - Check
    7. Tyre Rotation

    Additional tasks:
    1. Change front windscreen wiper blades
    2. Front Brake Discs and Pads - Check and replace if required - I suspect the pads are nearing replacement. Any ideas about cost estimates??

    No other major tweaks required. My GP has been a dream to live with so far.

    HI NK

    ur list is complete, well from my experience of second service. the brake pads if they hv to be replaced would cost you ~2200. I would recommend to get it replaced even if you have slightest doubt abt their efficacy.

    Thanks for your input.

    Basically, two points I need clarification on:
    1. Fuel filter - Which is the correct replacement part and new prices? The one with sensor or without sensor?
    2. Pollen Filter - Wiremesh one? Is it any good?

    Ratan,

    At the rate of only 8K kms in more than 1 year (i.e. around 500-600 km a month), no kit whether diesel or CNG will be cost beneficial to you. Petrol would give you the overall lowest cost though prices are higher. There is an opportunity cost (capital cost & interest cost) that you shell out on CNG/ LPG kits.

    Re: Punto 90HP - Query

    I read onone website that GP is 100 kg lighter than linea,
    still GP 90 HP is slower than Linea in terms of acceleration. Is it true ?
    Please explain ::O

    @Bhai- Punto 90Hp isn't "faster" than the Linea MJD even though it weighs less. I have heard some dudIndica guy cry over 15 extra horses but my personal opinion is that it isn't slower at all.

    @ PaddleShifter @ Italia-Linea

    Max.torque of 75 BHP is 197 NM @1750 RPM
    Max.torque of 90 BHP is 209 NM @2000 RPM

    Means 90 HP may be producing same torque of 75 BHP version i.e 197 NM @1750 .

    In 90 HP we can get aditional 12 NM after 1750 RPM.
    75 HP GP runs at 80 KM/Hr @ 2000 RPM. Means in 90 HP, we get real thrill after 80 KM/Hr.
    Below the speed of 80 Km/hr 90 HP will run same as 75 HP .
    Is it true that, because of Super Refinement of 90 HP engine,Turbo lag is more in 90 HP.

    But in terms of acceleration Who is faster 75 HP/90 HP ?

    Iam thinking to upgrade from 75 HP to 90 HP. But Iam confused wheather to go for 75 HP E+ OR 90 HP ? :confused
