    No, I am afraid I don't have any spoiler/wing on my Linea's boot. If you are referring to the Maroon Linea pic in the OP, it is not mine and is not sold in India. I just wanted to put the chrome strip on the boot similar to this Linea and hence the pic. The pics of my White Linea are on the same page below.
    Hope it clarifies.
    PS: The spoiler is available as Fiat Genuine Accessory in India.
    Price Rs.3899.9

    Finally I managed to put the fake chrome strip on the boot of my T-Jet. Pics attached.

    Also realised that the BN White is not the "pure or milky" white and is kind of off-white shade. Note the shade difference between the pure white door guard and off-white car colour.

    It cost me Rs.8.4 Lac on-road after all the possible discount/exchg bonus, etc. (in Feb '12)

    I personally avoid buying/installing any accessory, etc in Goa until it is something critical or doesn't need specialist for installation due to unprofessional attitude of the dealers. So with my limited knowledge I can say that the car accessory shops are scattered and the ones I know are Auto Paradise in Panjim (near ICICI Bank), Impact (100-200 mts from ICICI Bank) and Apex2001 in Porvorim (near O'Coqueiro circle). I am sure some good shops must be there in Margao too. Even with the good shops you can't expect good service consistently and good behaviour every time you visit.

    My T-Jet returned the Mileage figure of 12.5 KMPL from last tankful. I calculated by re-setting the tripmeter to zero at the last tankful.
    When I reset it again while doing the full tank and checked the reading today after some 40 kms, it is showing around 12.3.
    So all in all mileage has improved from 10 KMPL during the first 1000-1500 kms.:dance
    I am sure I can extract further more after around 5000 kms.:)
    ODO reading till date is around 2500.

    PS: I have put a Fiat Emblem on the bonnet. I am not sure whether it looks classy or weird. Its pasted via 3m tape and not screwed (I would never allow that). Have put it just like that and may remove as removal is not that tough. I am attaching a pic of the same.

    What I feel is that such kind of emblem looks good when the bonnet is long and flat like that in premium cars(personal view).
