    Guys I have done my best for pic.
    Practically not possible to major GC from car, because it is different from every angle and in every vehicle, it's depend on how ? where ? when ? run and driving of it.
    185 MM They mention in New specification of Linea 2012 , older is 168 MM , difference is 17 MM , it is nominal.
    But defiantly it is improved and rock.

    A million thanks for the pictures and the exercise you did to show out the differences.

    The change in height is very minimal. Even though specs of new car i.e 185 and old car 168 mm give out a difference of 17 mm the old suspensions with load dont lower the car as much as the new suspensions do.

    So this 17mm gets further reduced while practical driving. Mostly few obstacles and stones which are 10mm in less height will be escaped. Pitching on speedbreakers will more or less be the same.

    But the comfort of new suspensions will be good and it will do its duty to skip somes obstacles of not all.

    On another note we have 2 new 2012 lineas in our society. Emotion PK with 16" wheels looks more macho and tall than 15" and both look a lot taller than mine.

    In these pics i dont know why its not looking more tall. I will try taking pics of both these cars and compare with mine.

    Yesterday v went for a drive of 200 km roughly.... During our ride v had lot of observations after ugradation. V were 4 persons in the car. rougly around 100 kgs load was there in the boot. v can say that v were almost 5 persons but the car did not even touched the bumps which we generally observed that the car used to get scrached when v passed them.

    yes sir you are right v have noticed that the upgraded linea with 16" alloy wheel gives more tough looks and its quite high when v compare with old one.

    The 15" alloy wheel after ugradation of gc kit looks small as compared to 2012. V can visualize the vast gap between wheel and body.

    Nice Picture to compare before and after GC. Thought there is a little difference in visuals, I think there will be Much Difference in Raiding Quality. Can you tell your actual raiding experience - Linea with new GC kit. Is it really good for money spent on it , since I am also planning to go for it.
