    Ah. Its out finally. This is what I have been hearing for the last one month. But, I didn't expect this early from Fiat :).

    I am also eager to know whether its only the suspension setup that is offered or also the 16" alloys as well.

    Since the new Linea Active/Dynamic versions of 1.4 FIRE and 1.3 MJD share the same increased GC of 185 mm without 16" alloys, I think that the upgrade pack will comprise new suspension kit only without 16" alloys and bigger and wider tyres. So, the cost of the upgrade may not be very high.

    Have booked my car for this saturday, would ask about GC increase and cost assoiciated with it.
    I anyway have to change parts in front right and rear right suspension to bring the camber values within range, if the upgrade is not going to cost too much it's going in my car ASAP.

    best way is to use the car as it is till the edge of warranty for suspensions and then complain and get them changed in warranty. the new stocks they would be having will be off upgraded suspensions :)
