    Yes even wheel balancing they should charge only weights charges, no labour charges.

    Anyway, removing brake pads etc will make the service cost in similar range of 4K.

    BTW, what is "Air Filter Element PTL"?

    In 2nd Service of my Car, I also did not pay for Alignment after arguement. However, this time around due to paucity of time & hectic work at office, I was not in a frame of mind for any arguement. So, just let it go. And I do not know whether its still free from 3rd service onwards, as usually 3rd service onwards everything should be chargeable. So, left it at that.

    I think "Air Filter Element PTL" would mean Air Filter (Petrol engine) change.

    Abdul,

    I think its due to 3rd Service, Engine Oil, Change of Air Filter, Fuel Filter etc. But the effect is so tangible that I'm seriously thinking of getting my car serviced at not every 15K kms but at every 8-10K kms :)

    Yday morning, I found "L" letter of Linea monogram fallen on the recess of the rear bumper. It might have been fallen while the washer guy washed the car in early morning. Stuck it with Araldite today. Lets see how many days it stays.

    3M 2nd application is not as good as the 1st one. Few Swirls, faint scratches are still visible.

    A few snaps.... ::D

    I get a feeling that the initial lot buyers have been test mules for Fiat. On the bright side, 2 years warranty has ensured that test niggles were ironed out without much heart-ache to customer. A refined product like TJet seems to be a result of all this mule reporting :)

    Your car is very well maintained Amit. Kudos!

    ha ha ha :wink:.
    Also, can you think how much Fiat would have earned on our cars (think about all that we've got done under warranty !!) ?? (Even Wiper blades have been replaced under warranty). And, BTW we got our cars a good 1 Lacs rupees cheaper than current prices :clapping
    Thanks Kapil. Everytime when I see a brand new Linea with Gloss & shine, I wish my Linea always remain the same & hence try to do maximum to keep her like-new. Not only cars, I like to keep almost all items as like-new. Be it Laptop, Mobile, camcorder or even small small items, sometimes even the original packaging boxes housing such items remains for years ::O :confused

    Hey vahanpujari, u r my brother!!!

    I also keep all my things very clean and intact. I have some odd 100-110 audio casettes and 50-60 movie CDs.
    Neither a single CD is having scratch nor a single casette with tape damaged.
    Forget about CD/casettes, their covers are also intact (unfortunately with scratches due to bad handling of friends)
    I also like things should remain new for whole of life.
    your Linea really looks very nice. keep it up!! ::T

    I think all Fiaters are alike. There is no other car in India continuing to modern generation that is maintained the way Fiat is. Please correct me if I am wrong. My things also last a long while and seeing them in a poor condition ::OO ::OO is a big turn off for me.

    Fiats are built to last, with all those high strength steel and quality painting, maintaining Linea and GP as new is easy. Thats the reason why we still see lots of "brand new" old Palios on our roads. The body just wont give up the shape.

    The best way to keep car body neat

    The best way to keep car body neat is during monsoon, clean the car every month at washing station.
    Because lot of mud which accumulates below body and mudguard, rusts the whole body.
    from Jun to Oct, just do outer wash everymonth(which hardly costs Rs.100/month). Please ask washing fellow to concentrate on removing mud from bottom rather cleaning outer body. People normally avoid washing cars in monsoon for 2-3 months thinking 'anyway it is going to dirty again' is wrong.
    I do 4 outer washs in Jun to Oct and full body wash + greasing at least twice /year.
