      Its a little over 63,900 on the odo and got the wheels aligned and balanced at MRF Tyredrome. The odo at time of alignment was 63844. The Yoko Earth1 have been fantastic so far and have clocked over 20k now and from the looks I believe it can go well for over 50k. Only time will tell.

      Apart from alignment/balancing, got the headlights aligned and also the car wash done.

      Its one of the cheapest WA & WB job done at one of the best place. most of others charge Rs 150 per alloy wheel for the balancing.

      It's 64883 on the Odo and had a major A.C. overhaul done.

      All of a sudden the a.c. wasn't cooling and got the hissing noise (low gas).

      Went to Ambal a.c. works in Coimbatore (my regular place). Did a leak check and the pressure dropped within 15mins and the soap water leak check yielded zero results in the lines.

      So the next suspicion was cooling coil or condenser o rings. Being the Pooja holidays, I was asked to leave the car after a couple of days.

      Left it for work last Friday and got back the car on Saturday. As suspected the cooling coil had to be replaced.

      Went in with a non oe make which this guy uses for most of his customers and vouched for its quality. So me too opted for the same.

      Now all is well and a.c. is at its best.

      Total damage was 7k for cooling coil, Labour, cleaning of filter, condenser, couple of o rings along with fresh oil for compressor and of course the gas for a.c.

      A completely unexpected expense, but happy that it came up when I was in Coimbatore and was able to get it resolved without much trouble.

      Almost 66,800 on the Odo and got the gearbox oil changed once again.

      Thanks to the Chennai floods and some water wading, water entered the gb.

      Got it drained and replaced at home.

      Visited True Sai yesterday for some routine checks.

      The Odo now stands at 68,000

      Especially wanted to check condition of the aux belts and on the suspension. The engine guard too needed some corrections thanks to the craters on the poonamalle highway.

      Suspension belts were all well. Brakes cleaned. Clutch due for change but postponed by a month thinking of the rain forecasts in Chennai for last week of Dec.

      Additionally got some flash stuff done

      Ambience light for the foot well and indicators on the ORVM. An idea experimented by Aravindh and now implemented by dhans4all too

      But 1 meter of led strip and this fass can do the job for you!







      The drive back home

      Odo is inching towards the 70k mark. Started the year 2016 with a drive to the Nilgiris! Was planning as a solo drive until Sai joined along in his mamba

      Started around 9:30 am from Coimbatore. There was hardly any planning except that we start by 9 post breakfast. We did Kotagiri-Ooty-Masinagudi (via Kalhatti) and back in the same route.

      Prime focus was to drive uphill from Masinagudi to Ooty to see how the MJD's perform. Last time when I drove on the New Linea, the MJD struggled, but this time around with Cody it was a different ball game! It was very eager and agile even on kalhatti.

      The first stop was at Kotagiri GRV bakery for tea and vada. It was not that we needed a break, but could't miss the tea and vada at GRV whenever passing through

      The stats for Mettupalayam (Kotagiri road checkpost) to Kotagiri

      While deciding to remap, did you compare the pros and cons between Code6 and Wolfmoto? And what made you to go with Code6 and not with Wolfmoto?

      I remapped mine with Wolfmoto. Did not do much analysis as a few of my friends did the remapping with Wolf.

      Its futile to compare now that you have already done it with Wolf. Both are good tuners in their own terms. If either of them is closer to you its becomes an easier choice. Benefit with Code6 I see is that they have their own garage and you can proceed with stage 2 enhancements too, something that is not possible with Wolf. But even if its remapped by Wolf you can get work done from Code 6.

      For me Wolf team came to north before Code 6 and hence..

      Sorry cvanandh if i highjacked

      Further to the hijack I wanted to know anyone using their remapped car around 4000 km a month? That too 90% in highway?
