    Thanks. I am assuming you meant that as a compliment :D. There are a few who believe that all the knowledge I appear to possess is the result of Google searches. That explains my signature :D

    What one does with the information one gathers from Google Search is what matters. That is where you are different. Until one uses the information, it just remains an information that may be forgotten anytime. From the moment one uses or implements it, it becomes knowledge. And, it's that knowledge that you shared with the forum. :)

    My car is turning 2 today. :)

    It has been a wonderful experience all these 2 years. Nothing to complain about the car and even the service provided by Fiat. I was always happy with what TAFE did to my car before the TATA-Fiat breakup. Now, I am happy with what Ramkay is doing.

    Updates on my car
    - Brake pads replaced.
    - All 4 tyres replaced. Initially went with ZLO and then switched to ACELERE after the bad experience with ZLO.
    - 4th Paid service done. All fluids were replaced.
    - Renewed the Insurance with SBI General Insurance.
    - The Odo now stands at 44,341. :)

    No harm in stating this again. Mine has the lowest GC of all Fiat cars (161 mm) and still it has seen all sorts of terrains in South India. Never faced any major issue with the GC. The only terrain where my car struggled a lot was the route from Kodaikanal to Mannavanur. That was real deadly.

    Presenting some memorable moments.

    @Ramesh,
    Thats some quite good driving skills you got their Ram. Very difficult to take care of under body especially Turbo hose stuffs having a very low GC.

    44k+ kms in 2 years ?? Think you have some serious driving :) and glad that Linea be your best companion for these 2 years.

    Any specific reason to go with SBI Insurance ? I have seen most of the people either go for FG or Bajaj Allianz.

    Thank you Crazy Fiatian.

    Only reason for opting SBI Gen is that they gave me the lowest quote among all. Rs. 12985 for an IDV of 7.7L.
