    @Aviral singh, good to see some progress made on your purchase.

    I never knew that. Thanks for sharing such insights and I would also get the alignment done with first service. How much does it cost as FASS and outside, any pointers?

    I insist on alignment only when the steering is misalignment or feel any tend of pulling biasness(irrespective of kms done). Charges @ 600+ Rs at FASS.

    @Aviral singh Why are you 'pumping it multiple times'?:p Sounds ok to me. If it brakes ok with good progression....it IS ok.

    cheers

    No need to worry, just test it on a clear road. As Prabhjot suggests if braking is adequate then ignore the sound. If noise persists and brake pedal gets hard, get the brakes (booster) checked, in worst case may need replacement, under warranty as in your case.

    so this is what happens,when the car is parked and engine is switched off,then when i press the break pedal few time then that wooosh wooosh sound comes then goes off,and the break pedal becomes hard but when driving the car no sound niether the break pedal gets hard it,it works perfect then,and till now getting used to the blue and mee system,its very useful and userfriendly and absolutely no problem in pairing ,it takes only few seconds to pair and few more seconds to sync contacts ,and as i read somewhere on tfi only that you cant scroll through the songs from the music player ,you have to do the" NEXT" function or" previous" function from the steering wheel ,NO it can be done either ways,will update with picture when i go for a long drive tommorow ,as today here it was raining and it was raining on the day of delivery too,so had not got enough time to drive.but yes today went for a short drive of 40 km ,and got a mileage of 16km/l.:).will post pics as soon as possible.

    Hardness of break padel is normal when the engine is off, even same with stearing wheel.

    Hi Aviral, what you are experiencing is the Servo assistance of the brakes which comes into play once ignition is on or Car is started and this is completely normal. You can confirm the same in other cars too.

    Cheers.
