    Cheers to you, then, finally!

    Man if this isn't the best looking car in India south of say the new Corolla or the new Octavia...!? Esp in brown-tan, white and of course orange.

    Enjoy!

    @Tornado, many congrats to you. Bronzo Tan is indeed a lovely color. Feeling a little jealous though. :) I had the chance to see Orange, Bronzo Tan and White Avventura in person. Expecting a great review from you once you have enjoyed it for a few days.

    Off-topic: Love for Fiat is growing in the family now. My wife has learnt driving and has her eyes on Punto Evo which I also like a lot, though haven't driven. Fiat cars are addictive, for sure. Thinking to just take a test drive. However, no new purchase possible for the next 2 years as I just got the TJet three months back. Both of us prefer an automatic for her but Fiat doesn't provide any option. :(

    They'd be stupid not to launch the amt they are supplying to Maruti and to Tata on the Punto Evo and/or Avventura and/or Linea diesel!

    I suspect they won't be, at least not in the new year. ;)

    It seems , most of the experienced staff at Sky Moto has got shifted to Jay Vijay.
    I wanted to lodge order for Bicycle rack but it was out of stock. Accessory man was not knowing the purpose behind providing the cross bars because Rack & Cross bars are mentioned separately in the price list. I learnt on my own that first cross bars needs to be mounted on & perpendicular to the roof rails with a lock & key mechanism as shown in the pic and then the rack is mounted on those cross bars. 20150101_143030.jpg

    Bro, you forgot to mention the white Linea 2014.

    SE had told me
    that Fiat is going to launch Linea with 1.6 L AMT.

    Probably , that is part of R&D before trying it on it on fiat's own customers.

    Thanks for that list of accessories @Tornado. It's pretty good, can't judge the prices, though they seem ok relative to the extortionate ones offered by Honda.

    I hope enough dealers stock accessories, even the ones in smaller markets like say Baroda or Ranchi. They tend to be slow-moving items and some dealers from all car firms prefer keeping only a few of them to save capital?

    As if the SE knows that of which he speaks! :p

    I agree @adisrini1103: i like my new Linea dearly but a less 'elegantly mature', a more 'passionately-young' front grill+bumper are ESSENTIAL if they want to extract a hundred or three extra Linea sales a month. In fact: The Evo's would do very well, mefeels.

    And yeah: give the (median buyer) the damn projector lamps, since they don't want build, ride, handling, steering, braking, design, low costs or safety! ;)

    Although sky Moto people own two dealerships in Pune district, none of the accessory are available with them.
    Fellow said, they will order the bicycle rack and crossbars but they won't be available at the time of delivery.

    I fired a solvo at the SE and told him that at the time of booking, I had made it clear that my son wants it(rack & Cross bars) right at the moment of delivery. Why the heck the dealer is not interested in making the delivery experience pleasurable for the customer who is not going to get any discount?
    SE said that he will manage it somehow.

    If he fails I am thinking of getting the rack & Cross bars which has been removed from the TD car as the bicycle was scrapping the ceiling of the tunnels of the grade separators in the PCMC area.

    Anyways, I came to know that Fiat is soon going to launch 'luggage rack' for Avventura.
