    Ovais bro. I own a 2005 Vitz and pay special attention to it's engine not because I'm in love with the car but because it was my dad's favourite car and since he's passed away I have decided to keep this car for life that is why I'm very particular on it's maintenece and want the best for it. The following are highly recommended:

    1. Lepon air filter - Rs 300
    2. Lepon oil filter - Rs. 180
    3 Castrol GTX motor Oil 20W - 50W 3 litres can - Rs. 1,300
    4. Motor Flush done at 65,000 kms
    5. Engine Treatment oil to be used at the oil change I did mine at 65,000 kms
    6. At the time of servicing please do not apply oil to the base of the car, rather get an undercoating done via a recognized dealer.

    @FIsmail
    I am no expert, but given the pretext of car care you've given, I think you should be opting for genuine air and oil filters (atleast the oil filter if not both). Also, I dont think 20W - 50W is the right grading oil you should be using. There is a vitz/belta forum with several experts on that and you could check details from them too. If I planned to keep a car for life time, I'd rather use synthetic oil and genuine oil filters with regular maintenance (which you seem to be doing).

    Clatex Havoline fully synthitic 5-w40 is the best choice.

    For Corolla, opt for any 20W-50 oil. I'd recommend Zic Hiflo (Yellow Pack).
    For Vitz, opt for any good 10W-30 or 10W-40 oil. I'd recommend Petromin Ultra 7(10W-40), Shell Helix HX7 (10W-40/Blue Pack) or Caltex Havoline Formula (10W-30).
    Use VIC Air and Oil filter. VIC is Japanese and it's the best choice after Genuine/OEM filters. I'll never recommend Guard Filters. If you don't find VIC and you are not willing to spend so much on genuine filters, then the next best choice is Leppon Filters. They cost slightly more than the Guard Filters, but perform a lot better.

    There is no Zic A+ with 5W-30 grade. Zic A+ has 5W-20 grade.
