    I could have saved Rs. 2,000/- of Brake Discs had I replaced Brake Pads earlier :uh

    @sungoa - Where are you placed in Goa?

    That's a fantastic record and maintenance report of the Linea. It surely will pop up eye balls of many non Fiatians.

    FIAT doesn't some how understand that it suffers from the perception problem. The perception roots have already gone deep. May be they can use your record and a few others to endorse the actual maintenance of the car and throw the light on erasing the bad perception.

    Last Sunday I saw that some lamination kind of thing has come out from Driver side A pillar. There is a 1 inch dia shape from where it has come out. I don't know how has it happened. It seems like some lamination has come off. May be clear coat? Any idea? How do I rectify it? the edges will become wider as rain water is getting inside that lamination coating.

    What is that circular patch near the white area? Have you shown it at TASS?

    That Circular patch is what I'm talking about. Its kinda lamination is ripped off. That white area is the edge of the circular area where the water has seeped inside the edge making it bigger - Lamination here has come off the body & is loose and hence looks white area. But whats this lamination like coating? Is it clear coat?

    I don't think that cars will have any laminations on painted surface. What about the 3M coating. Does it provide any kind of coating. I think you recently had it. I will just point one thing that I noticed in B pillar of my Punto. The black colour is a lamination and the edges are like a wrinkled polythene cover in my case(not uniform).

    It looks like a coating or a lamination which is peeling off. I've not done any 3M treatment recently. A year back I got 3M Paint Protection treatment done but it does not give any coating over the body.
  10. better go to tass and get it checked.
    it seems the paint is peeling off in layers.
    the edges will be soft and easy to peel.

    was any damage done on that spot before?
    like stone chipping or was respray done there?
