    If it is so simple, then will this increase hamper the excellent handling quality of FIAT cars. Newbies who have not driven might not experience this as they will be new to this car. But folks who have driven earlier manufactured Punto / Linea will surely find the difference. Really need to get feedback about the handling quality of the new cars before opting for upgradation.

    I just got the news that it will be 11part kit, pricing still not decided and its still under test. So actual date of release not sure but around feb end or march. But its for sure that the kit will come out for old linea and its a 11 part kit.

    Excellent!!!

    It is a Sweet season news.:p

    Eagerly expecting the technology and cost involved for this. Whether FIAT will call back all older vehicles for modification or any date cut-off?
  6. I can confirm that 2012 Punto have better turning radius than the older one. The decreased turning radius as a upgrade will be very good.Can anyone confirm it or post it in their FB page?

    Its not a recall, you have to order for the upgrade kit and pay for it. Hence no recall or cutoff date, its a upgrade kit with 11 parts.

    I didnt get the complete details about the parts, only thing i know is that it has new shocks which are longer than the older and other parts that are part of the suspension. Will have to wait for few days to get the complete picture.
