    @Dilip_Dmk- Congrats man. ::T I like the sticker that says "Lancia Alfa Romeo FIAT". Truly gives the feel of a sports car. Where is this sticker located? :anyone

    Good to see that members in other cities / towns have responsive service centers .

    my grievance regarding the acc not being as effective as desired were swept below the carpet in the 1yr/ 15000km free service . i too decided to live with it for the moment as it seemed fine with dial set at 19 degrees . However i am concerned about the warmer months

    are any of tata-fiat's mumbai service centers acknowledging the acc issue and readily offering to fix it under warranty?

    This update will be extended to all petrol engine Linea/Punto. It's from FIAT itself and under warranty you will get a call soon.

    Hi Paddle shifter ,

    The alfa romeo , lancia etc sticker is near the fan . It was quite difficult clicking it !!!!

    @shashank : my recent FE is 17.8 kmpl , speed b/w 90 - 100 kmh without ac !!!!!

    atul: you dont need go for the kit replacement then, there are still many parts which have all those "goody goody" words written, just get a torch and a good camera to search around your engine bay :)

    hey guys i asked my dealer about the replacement. He confirmed that it has started but only particular serial numbers are eligible for the upgrade. He doesnt know which ones...but he said if you are eligible you u will get a call from the place you purchased your car.

    FIAT doesnt have ample kit, the request for upgrades have been more than what they can handle it seems, also this are imported ones, they are working on getting similar one from local partners to cut the cost down, thus it seems they are trying to reduce the load on imported kits costs, offering it at very selective basis, once the local supply is in they will push out more effectively. As already conveyed in meet at Factory visit that, they plan to get this done by jun, jul 2011 or so, that somewhat indicates that they will have sufficient amount of kits by FEB, March from local sources so that they could complete the process by jun-jul 2011.

    My dealer along with region after sales head has ordered the kit 2 weeks ago, its yet to arrive and no one has any clue when it would reach :(
    Awaiting till then ..
