    Second service

    Tigress is at True Sai works, Salem for the 15k service.

    Have got an appointment with RDC on June 4th. But going by the experiences of fellow TFIans and the huge crowd of cars they handle, I was not too sure of how well it would be done there.

    So drove chennai to Salem this morning just for this service. Waiting for them to open up now! Hoping for the best :)

    Great. Both showroom and service located in the same facility?

    The service centre has started operation only from yesterday! Inaugurated on Thursday they told me.

    This is only the service centre. It is located in the same compound as Thrive Honda 2 wheeler service centre next to AVR swarna mahal jewellery.
    I'm not sure about the showroom. Will enquire when i pick the car up :)

    ^^ Their showroom is under construction. It's coming up on the Dharmapuri highway (NH7) right next to GRT Grand.

    Just took a trial run after the service was complete. Car feels smoother thanks to the oil change. Will get to know better in the long ride back home!

    Time for an update!
    Crossed 17K km on the way to home today.
    Had a minor incident last week with someone stealing away the rear FIAT logo. Replaced it with a new one and hoping that it stays!

    Clicked a few pics on the way. Here they go!

    Crossed 20k km last week.
    And today Tigress got her first puncture on the way to my hometown.

    It was a little late when I realised i had a puncture though. Was doing around 100 past Acharapakkam when i noticed some abnormal noise. Muted the music and looked around for the source. Then found that i was leaving tyre marks behind! Quickly pulled over and found the rear right punctured. It wasn't fully flat though. Had 25 percent of air left.

    Can see the marks the tyre left behind in this pic:

    Changed over to the 14 inch space saver spare that Fiat has very kindly provided and drove the remaining distance at less than 80kph!

    Thanks to the space saver that ensured i stuck to less than 80, i could average 24.1kpl for the next 100km!

    The removed tyre has been replaced with a 5K km run spare from my dad's car, as they thankfully had the same tyre size and make! The repaired tyre went to be his spare.

    Will have to buy a new 15 inch Linea steel rim and tyre for the spare very soon.
