    Thanks @Raj_pol

    Anyone has the wheel arch covers or tried them? I see them on 99rpm. I was actually looking for them and was asking everywhere before I found them today. I think they'll protect the mud from splashing all over the wheel well.

    A short trip to Tamhini over the weekend : The Western ghats turn heavenly once the monsoon sets in. Every monsoon starts with a customary trip to Tamhini; yeah, the only reason being it's the nearest ghat to Pune :)
    Taking that road less travelled, going that extra mile to be with Mother Nature; It's an experience in itself that neither lens can bind, nor my meagre words confine.
    Let's experience it and be responsible for we've got to come back again next time.

    I'm sorry I can't comment on that as I've never stopped over for a bite.

    This is one of the best ownership thread I have came across!! You have made sure that even smallest things are listed out. Happy Mile crunching. :D

    Hey bro, I've paid 5700/- as I was not aware of 99rpm at that time :p. The same roof rails were available at 99rpm for 4855/-. Note that they're only for aesthetics.
    I asked them for Avventura-style roof rails, but was told they were not available as the Avvy itself was not launched by then. But then after installing these, I feel the Avvy roof-rails would've been an overkill. The current ones look subtle.

    Thank you; glad you liked it. I wanted to cover more details, but then I wanted it to be up quickly so people do not feel just write it off that no one is interested in the Evo. I'd be more than happy if someone were to read this and make a positive decision.

    So unable to bring myself to go to JV for the second service I called up Pandit FIAT. Time really flies. Come september end, it'll be one year of ownership and around 10k KM. So I thought I'd get the second service done one month in advance at Pandit.
    I was told that if it's a basic service they can do it. But if it requires parts, they may not have them available. Also their wheel balancing team will not be available from the day after tomorrow.
    Any tips or advice for a second service? I've had the complete engine oil changed during the first service at 3500KM.
