    Nopes ,its almost the same with cost too.
    About series of repairs you done might be due to failing of radiator fan resulted into cooling coil damage?
    Service centre might have found the coolant tank dark(turns if you mix excess distilled water) and might have gave you the wrong diagnosis.

    @Ganges :linea had two kinds of radiator fans.1.kale 2.behr .My linea comes with kale fan which are used in only some lineas not in puntos.and kale make are costlier than behr.And punto has a smaller hp compare to linea. Thats y service center will change timing chain at 60000 kms for linea but nt for punto.And above parts are same for both linea and punto. And above things identified by self not by service station.

    @PradeepM How about your plans for dashboard cam? Have you installed one? I would like to buy one for my RED.

    @KPR, not yet mate. I have been looking for one and that is surely on my list of additions (very limited) that I prefer to add to my car. A friend has picked a mini 0806 recently and Iam waiting for him to find sometime to complete the installation and update his feedback. I also need to find a way to perform a clean install of the camera (by using a free line / fuse in the related box) as I would not prefer an dangling wires in the cabin :). I will keep this thread updated as soon as I have it installed.

    Cheers,
    Pradeep.

    A visit to FASC (AV Motors) to get the scheduled wheel balancing, wheel alignment & rotation done.

    Start Time : 3:30 PM.
    End Time : 5:30 PM.

    I pre booked the time slot in the morning. The job card was promptly opened and the I requested for a through checkup of under body and suspension as well just to rule out any issues post my recent trip to Maharashtra where some stretches of the road were bad.

    Checks in progress.

    WA, WB & Rotation in progress.

    The car got the much needed wash after the highway trip (complimentary service).

    They have lubricated the door glass channels as well (complimentary service), this was a good gesture from FASC.

    Total Bill : Rs 940/- for WA & WB inclusive of taxes (which I felt is fine, as this included complete wash, the same would have costed me atleast Rs 400/- had I got it done else where)

    Cheers,
    Pradeep.

    Hello Saji,

    They sprayed the 3M lubricant in the grooves of all the 4 doors where ever the glass moves including the door pads and the frame.

    Cheers,
