    Thanks Ravi_M!!!

    Regarding washing my car, I do it myself once a month using normal water and other days I just dust it using the duster. If its very dirty after any long drives, then I take it to 3M or any local guy. Never done it at FASS.

    Some time back when i was crossing a section of road where road work was going on, I got lot of black dots all around the car. Same as you, normal wash didn't help. Hence I took it to 3M and they were able to remove it through detailing. May you should find some good detailers

    Thanks 5u3zEr0!!!

    Yes, I totally agree with you that 3ST is the quietest tyres out there. I was on the highway couple of weeks back and the cabin noise was totally different and the ride quality was very comfy.

    I thought that the 1.5 lakh km warranty was too much for a car, and no body would see those numbers on the odo in 5 years. For sure I was wrong as there are some folks like you who drive FIAT like the way it is expected to be driven and you guys keep enhancing the confidence for people like me . I may possible be in Bangalore in April and will plan to meet you and Krishna if plans materialize.

    @arun_josie, great mile munching. I love those retro dials so much more than the new ones introduced in the facelifted version.

    Planning for a 6K drive and hence doing some pre-checks for my car, please add/suggest If I am missing anything.
    Trip details: Bangalore-Mumbai-GJ-Udaipur-Agra-Delhi-Nainital and back.

    - ODO will be around 40K at the start of the road trip.
    - Doing the regular 45K service @40K(30K Service was done at 27.5K)
    - Oil and Fuel filter replaced @ 36K, So planning to ignore this during the service.
    - Doing WA/WB/Rotation @ Madhus
    - Doing Pollution check
    - Brake pad was changed at 27K, So will check for the current condition.
    - Battery check

    Anything else that I should check specifically?

    Oh..yeah, I have the yellow tapes in mind.
    What is specific about Mumbai - Udaipur section? Is it the traffic that you are talking about in some section?

    No No. Would like to know your experience in that section since something is in the offing in the coming months. I would be interested to know the pitstops, eateries which you will encounter enroute to Nainital.
