    Got this one the odo on the way to office today.

    Forgot to post about the filter. Opened up the airfilter box to see what is the status of the K&N air filter after 5K kms. The filtering seems to be quite good as this is a stock replacement filter.

    Ran the fingers around the intake manifold entry, did not find any dust or soot sort of thing, so believe, the K&N is doing a decent job. But air entry to the airfilter box was dirty and the bottom of the K&N airfilter seems clogged too.

  2. How much you paid for K&N filter. I am also planning to change for my car during second service

    I did not pay a single rupee as I got this from my close pal's punto. He sold the Punto and got Tjet.

    Forgot to post one more update. The car had the first puncture yesterday while returning from Munnar near Bannari. A screw (about 1 inch) had done the damage on the right rear tyre. But the pressure did not drop much. Got that repaired in Chamarajanagar and it costed 120 bucks.

    FE update:

    32nd Refill - 293 kms - 19.80 litres - 14.80 kmpl - Avg Speed - 22 kmph

    33rd Refill - 378 kms - 20.50 litres - 18.44 kmpl - Avg speed - 68 kmph

    34th Refill - 316 kms - 20.87 litres - 15.14 kmpl - Avg Speed - 23 kmph

    35th Refill - 333 kms - 19.41 litres - 17.18 kmpl - Avg Speed - 43 kmph

    Was hearing a bit of weird noises which was sounding like rattles which was very irritating for the past couple of days. Finally traced it to the sun glass holder where my wife had forgotten the goggles. Phew!! the rattle like noise is gone for good.

    Have you noticed any change in performance after switching to stock replacement K&N?

    To be honest not much of difference. Although one noticeable difference is that the revs build up a bit better than the stock foam/paper air filter. However, the mileage seems to be more or less very similar to the stock filter numbers. For the asking price of K&N, not much of a worthy investment. The stock air filter (cleaned every 2.5-3K kms) should make the car perform similar to the what the car would do with the stock replacement K&N.

    By the way switched back to stock air filter.

    Went out for a drive early today morning to check how wifey is doing with her training classes. Drove till Kamat near Chikkaballapur and back.

    A customary pic from the drive.

    The mileage from the very sedate drive. The Range was showing over a 1000 kms

    Wish this could be the mileage for every highway drive and wifey saying boring to drive (after she completely learns driving). :evilsmile
