  1. used 2018 Audi Q3 vs Seltos?

    @PuneetM incase you are going for the preowned 2018 Q3, try to get the car’s history of maintenance. You will come to know if any major repairs done on it. Get yourself atleast 3 years comprehensive maintenance contract, so that spares plus labour charges are covered. Refrain from buying roadside assistance. Spares and repairs are way costly as compared to eco cars.
  2. This shows that most of the people are ignorant of the fact that these rides don’t comply with BSVI and these companies are clearing their unsold inventories
  3. Swift Vdi -> #4th service #20000 Kms

    @Abhijit Jadhav hey! Don’t get annoyed.
  4. Hello to my all forum friends

    @arunsingh Welcome aboard. Tell us about your rides in details like diesel or petrol. Love to see the pictures of your cars!
  5. What all did you do today?

    “AC ON” display stopped lighting after 5 years, so inquired with Honda service centre, their reply renew the whole switch assmy. That’s ridiculous! After struggling for some time, I could remove & dismantle the switch. The bulb assmy is with a 2mm diameter filament bulb, which produces a lot of heat, thus making the switch hot. Now I turned and lifted the fused bulb assmy. Filament bulb’s two end are wire which are twisted in the bulb holder. What I did is renew it with blue LED with a resistor to withstand 12V DC. The soldering needs to be clean and wrapped with heat shrink tube. The final result is as shown in attached pictures and total cost just 15₹ plus 100% satisfaction.
  6. Modifications to Tata 307 Pickup

  7. Swift Vdi -> #4th service #20000 Kms

    @Abhijit Jadhav the post to which you are replying is very old. I am using idemitsu full synthetic L.O and the lube renewal time has doubled.
  8. Car Buying Decision

    @Muthukumar thought the Hexa is great SUV, why you want to go for BS IV vehicle? Wait some more time and get BS VI. TATA can’t sell non compliant vehicles after the deadline so they will offer or you can demand heavy discounts in case you choose BS IV hexa. Spares won’t be problem.
  9. Lost car key of Alto K10

    @Shukla you need not worry, report the matter to Maruti dealership they will assist you.
  10. Car Seat Covers And Floor Mats

    It’s not safe to purchase from non-standard websites. Better venture out and look at the product then buy. Online is safe if sites are amazon or Flipkart
  11. Ketika Ranjan from Gurgaon (Haryana)

    @ketika welcome! aboard. Update us on hybrid cars or SUVs, hybrid to the extent where these won’t be troubled by NGT. I am interested in BMW SUV, when can I expect these in India? Costs?
  12. Next-gen Hyundai Creta / Hyundai ix25

    @NB10 the above front grill looks ugly. Why this compact SUV going dzire way.
  13. Amaze petrol

    @Saman I too own a Honda Amaze diesel and Honda quality is good. Fuel average of diesel is 25.4km/L and on high ways same is achieved. The pickup of petrol isn’t great and fuel average is poor. I am still inferring as I am on FB forum(Honda Amaze Fan Club) where all owners and fans are there and we discuss the car plus any troubleshooting
