    Same thing happened to me... Monsoon started quite late in Ahmedabad and when it started, I noticed that the front left hand side wiper's rubber blade peeled off exactly the same manner you have shown in the pic... Visited TASS in the morning... It costed me Rs.617... :(

    Just like you said Sungoa... they are charging Rs.617 which they can easily manage in Rs.50, if they change only Rubber Part(Like the barbers put the blade in the "Astra" :D). Moreover they are Polluting Earth with extra plastic.

    Sun, if you have provision for loading external maps then try out MapMyIndia V7.0. It is very good indeed.

    It comes with an SD card slot. Just get a 4GB MSD card and load any number of additional maps!

    Thanks. Ordered one from flip cart. They are much cheaper in FK compared to shop.

    Regarding Engine oil change :My next service is in October. Do we have to flush the engine before changing oil? My odo reading will be <15K at that time?

    sun,
    not required,during my third service the oil have been changed to selenia as per TASS.Previously was running on Mobil Delvac1.
    i didnt found any difference in drive due to the brand change of oil.

    TASS wont do engine flush otherwise we would have seen another 400 to 500 INR on the service invoice.

    How do we connect charger to car 12V outlet. I want to charge my GPS device. I never used the power outlet neither in punto nor in my alto.
    Do we have to simply push the jack to the outlet after removing the cap? Do I have to purchase any thing extra?

    You got it. It is as simple as that.

    But, I am surprised to know that you never used the power socket in your car. :)

    Ha Ha. I had the impression that if I use it for things like vacuum cleaner etc it may affect the life of battery. Now I have no other option with garmin.:)
    +1 I don't smoke and always charge my mobile at home;)
