    15000Km service at Rs15000?? You have been looted most probably.
    Normally, the bill does not exceeds Rs4-5k for second service of 1.3MJD.

    Can you post the details of the bill? What all did they charge you for?

    You can not go to the service center just for changing the oil filter.
    You know about Indian conditions and the low quality of fuel used in our country. I think thats why they change oil filter at 15000Km instead of 20000Km.

    Lets assume that the filter is good for 20000Km for Indian conditions.

    The service interval is kept at 15k and oil etc is changed along with other filters every 15000Kms. You wont like to go to the service center at 15000Km for oil change and then again after 5000Km for oil filter change.

    The whole purpose of 15000Km service interval is to reduce the number of visits to the service center for the routine scheduled service. I hope this helps. :)

    @MihirC- I just got my replacement done. Too early for me to comment on the performance of the AC. But to your question about Punto, I saw a punto undergoing the same replacement. I checked with the SA who confirmed that they have received a list of chassis numbers which includes Linea petrol, and Punto petrol.

    SA also mentioned that the make was "Colley"..not sure of the spelling.

    I had a talk with Service Advisor for FIAT @ Malik Cars Hyderabad and he said that the kit is expected to arrive in two-three days....
    Has anyone in Hyderabad got the AC upgrade kit installed on their Linea/Punto
