    Yes!!! Now I don't have to change my linea for the new one ....


    I was fearing I would loose all my extra fittings

    Fiat !!!!! You rock
  3. This could be nothing less than 10K to 12K, things involved are springs,strut may be mountings.

    Great news!

    So FIAT India was serious about it after all. Interested to see what all components they will be offering in the kit.

    improvement in the gc for older punto and linea should be free of cost. we should approach fiat official in thish regard.

    I am not sure if it should be done free of cost. There was nothing defective in the previous setup and hence this cannot be considered for a recall. This is just an enhancement for the road conditions here.
    It would have been better if Fiat had thought about this and implemented the changes before launching the car here, but then anyone can overlook such things considering that the previous GC looked good on paper.

    its wrong to demand this upgrade free of cost. no other manufacturer even tries to provide upgrade for older models. fiat has shown courtesy by opting to provide old customers the upgrade kit.

    but i would say they should provide the upgrade with no profit no loss. i.e the parts should be given to us without the profit margin.
