    Approaching the 75000 km mark.My car is due for some replacements.Purchased 3 tyres(195/70 r14 95H ,BRIDGESTONE POTENZA RE88)from snapdeal @ 4508+125 per piece.Have purchased the fog lights from 99 rpm.Will put these in place after some minor body work is over.
    Now I barely go to the FASS at KOLKATA.All the genuine parts are available online through 99rpm and I purchase whatever required.Really great service from 99rpm.
    This is my 1st car to cross the 5 yr mark,now in the sixth year.Have plan keep the car for the next 3 yrs.
    Recently replaced the engine oil with MITASU ULTRA CI 10W40 diesel engine oil.Purchased from Flipkart @4000/-for 4 litres pack.Noticeable improvement has been observed in smoothness and some improvement in mileage also.
