    Linea 1.3
    A great way to start the new year 2013. I got my Oceanic Blue Linea 1.3 MJD delivered on 31st Dec, 2012.

    After lot of research, confusions etc. I booked my Linea on 8th Dec (read my intro - http://www.teamfiat.co.in/introduce-yourself/8596-hello-everyone-new-forum-fiat.html). As usual then comes the buying experience of a FIAT with little challenges. However at the end everything went fine, if not smooth, and I got my Linea.

    On 29th the car was received by my Dealer and I did the PDI on 30th Dec (Sunday). Just looking at the car, I could able to sense that it is made for me. I would not rate my PDI as thorough but good. Lots of dust, but it is understandable.

    ODO reading: H 128 KM (understandable as there would have been additional PDI done at factory and at Dealer end)

    No scratches, dents etc. (later found one small scratch at front right door)

    Checked all windows, ac, music system, seat adjusters and interiors.

    Additional freebies other than floor mats and mud flaps - Door sill, Linea neck rest and pillows and GOD idol.

    So far completed 130 KMs - simply a wonderful experience driving this beauty so far.

    One small niggle - after using AC (even for a few minutes) water dripping from the bottom of the engine compartment. Will be checking it today at the service centre; it has never happened with my Indica.

    Now it's time for few pictures. :)

    Congratulations! OB is a fantastic color for the Linea.

    That is not a niggle and is perfectly normal operation of the AC system. The water you see is the condensation water dripping out from the drain pipe. Just like we see in our home AC's and all cars. No need to go to the Service Centre. I would be worried if i did not see any water dripping from there! :)

    Cheers.
