  1. yeah!!! the third stop lamp costs around 2.5K just because of this feature........... :)

    From day one I am having a separate tool kit pouch with welcrow which sticks to the mat in the boot near the left wheel arch.

    Vignesh.... great find buddy.. it really works... :)

  2. Linea has 2 separate bulbs for Hi (H7) and Lo (H1) where as Honda City has a single bulb with both Hi and Lo.

    In Linea when you switch on your headlight, lo is always on and when you put high beam it also stays on, ie. both high and low beams work together and when not using the high beam only the low beam will work where as in the Honda City only one beam will work at a time ie. either high or low

    Does emotion pack have this same kind of feature??

    No. Emotion pack has usb port in its glove box. Aux is not supported by the hu in epk.

    There are child locks on the rear doors to prevent such a thing from occuring. ;)

    Yep, I think FIAT messed up here. It should have given a warning as I once drove the car for over 30 kms. with loose bonnet. Its a BIG safety hazard.

    Your Media Player settings need to be changed. Go to Settings via steering controls, then go to Media Player and then go to LOOP settings. Turn LOOP OFF. Alternatively, you can also press the Microsoft Windows button on the steering and say "LOOP OFF". This Loop off voice command feature hasn't worked for me till date though.
    Refer to the User Manual of your car for the procedure of turning Loop OFF.

    No car in India gives warning for open bonnet so I guess it's fine if FIAT also did not provide this feature. Besides, IIRC no other car in India upto 10-12 lacs will tell you which door is open by displaying "rear left door open", "right front door open", "boot open" etc.
  7. You have to manually get it locked and it is a pain also cos when elders sit at the back, they are unable to open the door and we have to get out from the driver seat and open the door for them.

    It would have been better if there were controls from the driver side to unlock the back doors just like we have controls to lock/ unlock the back power windows
  8. any reason for not providing this feature???

    A small query.. in the case of central locking too... no siren, nothing of that sort.. car may be safe but belongings in the car is not safe at all...... :)
  9. Heyguys! just found out today.. maybe you guys have already noticed.

    When your headlight is on and in high beam and you switch off your headlight and again switch it on, light is automatically in low beam and not in high beam as and when you switched it off... Hows that possible????...... :eek:

    :anyone ............. ??
