    FIAT OEM wiper blade is not Syndicate. FIAT provided wiper blades are imported from Germany. Syndicate blades are made in India. I dont know about the quality of Syndicate blades. But the ones provided are solid ones and long lasting.

    Are these wipers ditto same in all dimensions, not just length?

    Remember the manual used to say that Punto/Linea wipers are designed to minimize wind noise?

    I am one of those who strongly suggest not going to FIAT service centers for routine filter replacements. 99rpm rocks.

    Oil Filter: Go for this SOFIMA Oil filter with eyes closed.
    Air Filter: FIAT OEM Air filter is available at 99rpm. Else a vista quadrajet air filter should do the job in my opinion.
    FUEL FILTER: The most crucial component and the one at 99rpm is without sensor? Any ideas if its just as good as FIAT OEM?
    Engine Oil: Mobil Delvac1 5W-40 for MJD without second thought. Pour 3 liters only initially. Not 3.2 liters.

    Can you tell why?
    Is it too cheap on 99rpm? I don't see any other reason to not to take it from OEM.

    Roadside mechanic can do better job when it comes to replacing Air filter and engine oil. FIAT ASC mechanics are not trained for this.

    30000Km service:
    - Air filter cover was misfitted. There was lots of gap and bending. I am posting pic to back up my claim.
    - Steering was tilted and alignment was made faulty. Its still not has been the same ever since. I have shown of subsequent alignment reports to Italia-Linea.

    My dad fixing it back to proper position in the pic below.

    45000Km service:
    - Engine oil has been leaking ever since.

    60000Km service:
    - I did service from outside but took Punto to Speed FIAT Chandigarh as I wanted OEM fuel filter. They opened air filter for "free cleaning" I guess. I asked to do only fuel filter replacement.
    - YES they again did it. Air filter lid wasnt tightened. My dad did it the next day and we both sweared together at these morons.

    I am a doctor with little mechanical knowledge but even I can replace the air filter. These so called technicians can not. :ugeek:

    On wipers it's written as FIAT only..so i think Fiat provides wiper blades which are imported from Germany..Ya the ones provided by Fiat are solid,long lasting and they clean glass very neatly unlike other car co's wipers which are not of quality..

    Ok fine..then Fiat syndicate wipers are of quality ones..these mud flaps are good but which mud flaps are these ones??they are not Absolute ones..
  9. I dont have a good experience with syndicate wiper blades. They are of lowest quality. The OE ones are FIAT which are imported. I have used it in my uno(sourced from Delhi) and i regret my decision for using it. Due to poor quality of rubber, it made a lot of scratches(irreversible damage) on the windscreen. After that i got Bosch blades which are of superb quality. Unfortunately Bosch is not available for Linea/Punto. Those using it in Linea/Punto please beware and better to stay away from it.
