    I had taken help from road side sticker guys, to save the defogger (looks 1 or 2 strips got affected even so much care).

    Just heat the read glass (better in sun light) and then remove carefully.

    Given my car for 3 years, 4th (1st payed) service today to Concorde Motors, Dairy Circle.

    No major issues, but did report below issue to check -
    - Sound from front suspension, looks link rod needs replcement
    - Ciggy lighter's orange light (LED) is not working
    - Check battery, looks week now
    - Wiper blades, all 3, needs replacement
    - One AC vent seems to me throwing less air

    As 3rd birthday (19th Aug) gift, I ordered new star mats (FIAT Punto Star Mats,FIAT Punto Car Mats,FIAT Punto Car Floor Mats Suppliers in India).

    All issue, except "Ciggy lighter's orange light (LED) is not working" are fixed.
    Link Rod change costed ~3K.

    I have taken few extra help from Concorde this time, apart from regular service, 3M interiors cleaning, AC duct cleaning.

    Total Bill 14K.

    Ext warranty looks some confusing. Link rod was not fully gone, but SA (Khan) advised me get it changed. If link rod had been gone, then only extended warranty will come into picture (as per him). I believe him so didn't force much.

    @pran, the star mat is 3 piece, i piece for complete back side.
    I will post pictures, when i take.

    point is that it was making sound so even if it was half gone, i think ext warranty would have been applicable!
    sometimes having friendly relations with these people can backfire ;) i have also had such exp couple of times once when warranty for horn was denied to me in kht in a very friendly manner but i got it replaced under warranty in ranchi.

    Completed 40K KM, nothing much to update.
    Having some sound from front suspension, all other things are in proper shape.

    Wash at 3M, HSR Layout -
