    Just now, I received a telephone call from Concorde Motors, Mysore Road, Bangalore, informing me that AC upgradation kit for Linea 1.4 got exhausted and they would inform me as soon as they get it by next week. So, my Linea won't be going there tomorrow. :sadblue I am happy that Concorde Motors was courteous enough to inform me in advance.

    So the AC cooling problem is only with the petrol model.

    Yes... If you see the parts replaced are actually already present in Diesel variants..... Diesel cars already have bigger radiators and padded pipes... Even the engineer from FIAT Pune who was there for inspection of Retro kits upgrade told me that the new Petrol Retro kit is designed keeping in mind the diesel vehicle AC Cooling and Radiator.... FIAT's target was to reach the same cooling level in petrol cars too........ My exp. till now says that they have reached to that level :clap ... It cools the car cabin now... :dance

    My car's a/c is not cooling. the temperature was 35 outside and when I sat in the car for 1 hr, even though the temperature on the panel was showing 34.
    I was feeling very hot :firey . It was happened today afternoon. I immediately called Wasan motors, they gave me an appointment on 14/02/11 10.00 am.
    lets see what will happen. Anybody has faced this problem in 1.3 Linea?

    They say the AC upgrade is only available for Punto 1.4 manufactured before Aug2010.
    I got my AC and clutch slave cylinder replaced(upgraded) at Concorde motors, Diary Circle, Bangalore yesterday. They took two days. Mine is Aug 2009 Model and has done 13000 km. I can feel a big difference in the AC's performance. Gearshifting has become smoother after CSC replacement. :cool:

    I have a feeling that, apart from AC performance, this upgrade would also make a diffrence in car's functioning as the ECU is flashed with Italy server. Service Manager mentioned "its like changing the heart of the car".

    Let's see. I'll get the car back today evening.
