    The car was quite dirty over the past week. I washed the car on Tuesday evening but had no time and energy left for waxing the car. Today morning got up early and did just that.

    Products used. Meguairs Tech wax 2.0, Meguairs Alloys Shine, Meguairs Glass Cleaner and Meguairs Tyre Foam.

    Got the coolant leakage fixed yesterday. The culprits were the lose clamps of the hoses connected to the thermostat valve which needed replacement, the hoses were fine with not sign of cracking or giving away. The cost for fixing this was 670 bucks for two clamps, 2 liters of premix coolant, silicon glue and labour.

    The picture for illustration of the location of the clamps.

    I guess yours is a 2012 model with raised GC. Does Madhus place you go has the spec for 2012 lineas?
    I am not sure if it matters at all. I have visited many places for alignment but all of them have different values.

    Mileage update:

    99th Refill: 350.7 kms - 22.31 liters - 15.72 KMPL (MID 15.6 kmpl) - Average Speed 17 kmph - Rs. 60/- per litre from HPCL near CBI Road.

    AC Filter Change

    Off late was feeling that the AC cooling was a bit lower and the blower speeds too. Decided to remove the AC filter and check how bad it is. The filter had turned blackish and decided to replace the one which I had stocked from some time.

    A few pics after the wash and wax.
