    Well there is no doubt that the car was painted.

    1. They themselves accepted that the car had been painted!
    2. See the border beside the VIN where you have Saffron like paste in your picture. It is the same on all new cars but in this case it is painted white.
    3. I saw a white Avventura and the Linea side by side (both supposed to be in New Pearl White). The paint difference was huge when the two cars stood side by side.
    4. Look at the VIN plate, you would fins tinge of white there too.
    5. There were paint drip marks on all doors which never happens on factory painted vehicles.
    6. The paint seals on all doors were clearly not done at the factory.
    7. The interior of the front fenders did not even have proper white paint.
    8. The word Multijet on the boot is located too right as compared to a factory painted vehicle.
    9. Look at the chrome beading on the front right door (images in the first post). Zoom it and you will find white paint on the chrome too.
    10. The gray Linea had dashboard damages at the exact same locations as this one.
    11. The gray Linea disappeared suddenly. When asked they could not answer where the gray Linea was!! (for obvious reasons)

    Yes it might be hard to digest that they painted a vehicle totally in a different shade, but that is true unfortunately.

    They might not paint a car in a few hours however it is easy to change parts. ;)

    Finally the refund of the original amount got completed today.

    However in the mean time I ended up paying Rs10,000 (ten thousand) as the bank interest for 1 month 10 days! So basically I ended up paying 10k just because a dealer committed fraud! :rage:

    Useless since I don't need any accessories on the Emotion variant, already everything available is factory-fitted.

    ROFL = Rolling on the Floor Laughing ;)

    It would have made sense in case of Maruti.

    It is not possible to sell FIAT accessories outside. :D
