When i need to get car tuning?

Mostly car drivers think that when they travel 8000 km, they need to go for tuning.
But i think best time for car service after covering 10000 km.

What you say guys?

I think 8000km is about 5000 miles, which is when I usually take my car in for an oil change, tire rotation, and quick inspection of everything else.

Once every calendar year or every 20k miles is what Ford says in my owners handbook......

Each car requires a different amount of TLC in order to keep them running efficiently. Mechanics usually suggest a check-up and service every 10,000 kms or 6months, whichever comes first.

Depending on who you go to, there's usually a sticker on the top left of your front windsheild telling you when you should go.

I am a professional Mechanic. Could you please elaborate what "tuning" your referring to. Oil change? Replacing wearable parts such as spark plugs? I would love to help answer your question, but I need more info. Also, what kind of car are we talking about, old? New?

Well depends on car...

Personally I do Oil every 5,000 km (3,000 miles) then every 10,000 km (6,000 miles) rotate tires, change fluids, possible brakes...

Well It's not much,use adjusting cars up if you don't know how to modify a clutch. I think driving circular with a laptop and a information, wire as your only resources is not the way to go.
