    Truly said buddy. You buya FIAT because your mind fails to control your heart and once you own it Your minds make you go for unnecesary drives just to get the feel of the drive.

    I never understand this magician nature of the FIAT cars.

    I changed the tires of my Linea... The choice was Falken Sincera SN835 (195/60 R15)

    My observations:
    1. Super Silent on tar roads.
    2. Cornering grip is amazing
    3. Haven't got a chance to test the wet grip.
    4. Life: Time will tell.

    The tire comes with a very good prorated warranty that covers the side wall cuts as well.

    My Linea got new inner wears.... was planning to get them done for long.

    I opted for OEM design and little lighter shade as it will match the oem beige after some usage.

    Material used is called as 2mm leatherite, anti sweat and leather feel and texture.

    Dent on pocket was 12500 and done at Car Cupid, Pune.

    Great Job Man, Looks pretty authentic. And the material specs look great too. Nice idea to go a shade lighter. ::T

    Thanks Neel, Channa and ASimpleson... Actually pictures are not doing justice to the inperson feel... It is really amazing and finish is even better than OEM.

    Hi Shashank,

    Are you a friend of Sanchit Sachdev by any chance? He is a good friend of mine, and of course ex-colleague, and he did mention to me sometime last year that one of his friends, a GP owner, met with a terrible accident.

    I think I probably missed your thread on the terrible accident.

    Anyways, glad to see that you have put all that behind and getting on with it - thats what matters right! I know people who loose confidence in their driving after such a terrible accident but I reckon you have grown from strength to strength over the last few months.

    Wishing you many safe miles with your Linea, take care.

    Cheers,

    Hi Girish,

    I am indeed Sanchit's friend... it took me few days to overcome but the fact is there is something that the fiats have... they just hypnotise u behind the steering wheel...

    Thanks Mahesh. I was very much impressed by the quality and workmanship.

    I did a 500kms plus trip last week and the seat covers do not get heated and are easy to maintain.
