    Rain started & I have to discontinue usage of Car body cover. Both Logo's are still there gleaming & are very inviting to those moron thieves. Lets see what happens. Since y'day, the car is without car cover & both Logo's are still intact.

    After almost a month, I'm gonna get my hands on the steering :steering tomorrow. Am suffering from backache & had to hire the driver for a month. Can't wait to get my hands on Linea :mrgreen:
  3. Amit,

    Wow ! what else can i say !!

    I was a keen follower of your threads in Team BHP and let me tell you, i was very upset the day your name disappeared from the T- BHP forums.

    Fantabolous review man. Keep flowing in. Incredible writing indeed with every minute details !! Just too good.

    Came home from office at around 12 midnight (after speaking to you from office) and am hooked on this thread of yours till now (1.00 am).

    Am sure the Best is yet to come. Keep posting and all the very Best.

    (p.s : now i can see what your handle relates to !!!)

    Got hands on my Linea steering after a month y'day... :steering

    Got charmed all over by revving & producing that typical Italian Engine Growl :mrgreen:

    Got 14.5 kmpl FE y'day early morning while coming to office (32 kms) with AC ON :-D
    (Early morning so traffic was less, but still its within city)

    BTW, its 3 days (Sunday/Monday/ Tuesday) that I've not covered my Linea with Car cover due to rains. And both Logo's are still there :mrgreen:

    In fact, on Sunday, have filled Araldite in some gaps surrounding front Logo.

    Come on, moron Thieves.. try to find a gap to insert screwdriver, get frusrtated & move over to another car to flick the logo..not mine.. :mrgreen:
    (Keeping fingers crossed)

    I've observed that in last 2 months the AC cooling performance has improved leaps & bound.

    This summer was hotter, my car remains in open for 24 hours directly under weather elements & add to the fact that I've not stuck any sunfilm. Still I experienced that when I start the car, I set the ACC at 18-19 degree but in less than 5 minutes the cooling increases so much that I always move it & keep it on 22-23 degrees temp. May be the cleaning of Pollen filter helped.

    The Wipers are simply amazing !!! It was raining very very heavily this morning & visibility was extremely poor with weather being dark & gloomy. The Aerro style (flat blade) Wipers made my day. Simply awsome :clap

  8. Very true Amit, FIAT wipers were doing there job perfectly even in the heaviest of downpour :clap :clap . The other thing I liked was ACC, no mist at all, all around the car. I saw many other drivers driving with mist.

    @vahan,

    I noticed a small detail in the wipers, the right hand side wiper when coming down after wiping tends to push the water which has been wiped by the left hand side wiper on the left hand side of the wind shield, when you tend to look on the left hand side water is left on the glass. This I observed while the wipers were on Intermident mode. In continous mode no problem.

    How is the monsoon in Mumbai.

    Another detail I observed while driving in rains was mist is forming on the outside of the glass, especially on the driver & co passenger side only, not on the rear side glasses. Is it due to excessive A/C.

    I think this is normal & quite obvious. However, shall check it today.
    It was downpuring in the morning today
    I observed something opposit y'day evening itself. There was no mist forming inside (I kept AC at 24-25 degrees). There was some funny thing happening. On the outside, for a second the mist was forming & at the same time after a fraction of a second it was automatically being disappeared (Wipers were off as it was not raining), may be due to outside wind? But it was a funny site - kind of mist blinking - trying to come up & immediately disappearing like some invisible force is wiping it. :mrgreen:
