Living with a Maruti XL6: 30,000 km service update & underbody coating

The underbody had acquired some chips, so took this opportunity to re-do the entire underbody including silencer.

BHPian Leoshashi recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Update: Since the car was extremely dirty after the trip, got it cleaned inside out at a nearby center. Also, the underbody had acquired some chips, so took this opportunity to re-do the entire underbody including silencer. Opted for Liqui Moly Stone Guard which happens to be my old favorite. For silencer coating, went with Turtle Wax and was pleasantly surprised by the glossy finish it gave, far superior than any silencer coating I have used till date.

PMS 30 Done: Got the 30k service done, albeit at 31.5k km due to the Jaisalmer trip. Nothing special, just the usual stuff of Engine Oil change, Air and Cabin filters cleaning, brakes cleaning and wheel rotation. Excellent experience at M/s Hilltop Motors, specially due to SA Mr. Nazir.

Cost:

Also since I had hit a pothole quite hard during the trip, and the steering was feeling a bit weird, got the alignment fixed at my preferred store and the LH side indeed had taken quite a hit.
