  1. Guys with the ash tray in their cars. Ever noticed the bottom of the tray after opening the lid?

    It has the symbol of FIAT, Lancia and Alfa Romeo :shock:

    Don't tell me thats imported ::OO

    Please correct me if I am wrong, I think boot will open only after auto lock has been operated to open a door. AFAIK, auto lock can be disabled only after car comes to a halt.

    Also you cannot change the menu settings while the car is in motion. Recently I was waiting at an signal and noticed that the clock was not correct. I proceeded to correct the time and mid way through that the signal turned green. I started moving the car and MID immediately came out of the menu mode. ::pP
    Good safety feature :)

    Yes it is true. The duct is present under the front seats.
    You need to put some effort to see it.

    Ravi only you will have to push the front seats to the max front. I saw the vents in my Linea 2 weeks back when I was vacum cleaning. Remove the mats which you have placed in, no need to remove the original mats.

    I doubt. My son pressed boot opening button twice - once while the car was in motion. I had to stop the car, climb out & shut the boot.

    Sandeep, quries for fixing cable for USB in the car player.

    1) How did you remove the car player, did you have any special tool to remove the same, or a Screw driver is enough.

    2) Is there any specification for the cable, can a USB fitted on to the cable.

    3) Is there a pin for attaching the cable to the player of the car.

    4) While refitting the player tot he car does it ask for the code number.

    Naren.

    Hi Naren.
    Some answers from my side as well

    2. No. A USB can't be fitted on to the cable unfortunately.

    3. Yes, there is an AUX-in pin at the back of the head unit.

    4. I don't think it asks for the secret code because there is no need to disconnect the HU power cord. You just need to pop out the HU from the dash. But, I'm not sure.

  10. Got to know of this feature while I was reversing my car yesterday evening. In Punto Emotion Pack, if the front wiper is on (either intermitent or continuous) the rear wiper will start working on its own if you engage the reverse gear. A neat :clap feature very thoughtful.
