    Not sure how many of you really experienced it or went through the NOTE in the manual regarding ACC.
    The temperature in the ACC blinks at times when we do manual settings which the ACC system cannot guarantee to achieve. I had to revisit the ACC section to understand why the blinking came up.

    Guys one query,
    Sometimes I see KMs on my odo blinking. This happens frequently. Anyone knows the reason?

    IIRC, I have observed this when I turn off the compressor manually.

    I have finished the entire 64 pages of this thread.
    Thank you for sharing the info.
    Of the newly discovered features, I use quick wipe and radio ON without key (for my wife to listen when I go to the way side shop).

    Awesome thread. Finished whole thread in a single go.
    some points I noted -

    -Realised about parking brake thing. But as later discussed that its ok for overnight halt, I am glad that what i follow was not wrong.
    -I will check about card holder thing near parking brake tonight while leaving from office.
    - Single side parking light was also a revelation.

    - My 2013 Tjet has this feature. It works for 30 seconds to be precise and for all four doors(front 2 doors I have tested myself).May be this was added in 2013 models because while buying SA demonstrated me about this feature. Plus, Its also in the brochure "All four auto down windows with delay"

    Fellow 2013 linea owners can confirm.

    This was incorporated in 2012 across Punto and Linea. My '11 90HP does not have it, our 2012 75HP does.

    I came across a setting on the rear view mirror (inside the car) could be adjusted to avoid glare due to headlights. Wasn't aware of this till date!
    However, would like to know what is the correct position of the lever below the mirror for enabling the anti glare? (was not detailed in the manual)
    Apologize if this is too basic.

    First of all, that lever as 2 positions. "Up" and "down". Put it in "down" mode and adjust the mirror from the normal glass side. Then move it "upwards" and see if you can see the rear windscreen in antiglare mode.

    You can use it in the reverse way also and it all depends upon what you prefer. I prefer to turn the antiglare function on by moving the lever upwards and hence this setting.

    Thanks PaddleShifter

    tried the same today morning found that when the lever is in down position the glare due to sunlight reduces to great extent. However, plan to use this during the night to avoid glare due to headlights of vehicles behind. During day the up position seems ok for me.

    TL;DR I just read this somewhere and tried it out ASAP. In the linea if you keep the "Air circulation" button presses for a long time, you get a different display on the climate control screen. It reads from 1.0 to 99.0. I did not understand what it is its use but was quite happy and surprised.
    Another thing i noticed was when we turn the temp below 16 i.e "LO" the air is sent in the middle segment. but when you go for "hi" it automatically sends hot air to your legs
    Reason: cold hair is thicker so settles at the bottom and the car heats that air first!!. how awesome is that!!!!
