    Hello Gourav. Welcome to TFI. Linea Classic is an amazing vehicle. You bought the Classic or Classic+ variant?

    A small recommendation:

    Have you considered upgrading the tyres? Due to the segment in which it is intended to sell, Linea Classic comes with 14" tyres.

    You can buy Linea 15" steel rims for Rs1000 each and Linea wheel caps for Rs350 each. And swap your new tyres for new 195/60R15 tyres. I swapped my Punto's 165/80R14 JK tyres (Got Rs2400/tyre as buy back) for 195/60R15 Goodyear GT3 tyres (Rs4400/tyre), paying Rs2000/tyre (Rs4400 - Rs2400).

    So my total expenditure was Rs14000/-.

    The reason why I am quoting the prices is that this is best to do soon after delivery. The more you delay, the lesser you get as buyback of old tyres.

    Linea is a heavy car and deserves 195mm wide 15inch tyres. They give better handling and ride to the car.

    You can read more here if interested.

    Welcome to the TFI family Gourav. +1 to PaddleShifter thoughts on up sizing the tyres. Buy back price for used tyres is very less and its good to upsize immediately if you plans for it.
