    Actually, it's other way round. Parts like Strut mountings, Elastic Pads, Link rods etc are a continuous bugging items needs replacement in shorter time than expected. Elastic Pads are changed 3-4 times in my Linea. Strut Mountings are changed again 2-3 times. Link rods were changed once. These are the common culprits in most of the members' cars.

    Clear Coat quality on the paint is also questionable. In my Linea the Clear Coat is coming out on its own at one after other patches. When I queried on this in forum, gurjinder mentioned that it was a common issue in Palio as well and his Palio became "Zebra" with clear coat coming out from several places.

    Sorry for delay in answering your query. We ran a saparate wire through Car Lighter to the CCFL rings with a switch to turn it on/off if i need too. Hence it turns off the ring when i turn off the car and vice versa, also i can use it as DRL's.

    As far as media player problem, yes it occured in my car also. But my installer changed the bulbs which he specifically bought for me when he went to china with the one that dont have connectors in the back, i.e they have wires connected directly to bulb and that connect to Ballast and the problem is gone now 99%, it happens now once in a blue moon. This problem is due to the fact there is a spark when you turn on the bulb in the connector at the back of the bulb and your media player resets due to that.

    I am using default settings right now, i.e D1 and getting around 16-17 in city driving and around 20 on highway. I did try C2 and higher for a short duration but found then not useful in city bumper to bumper driving. Please do remember also, your using Punto with FGT, which behaves very differently from VGT turbo in Linea. So you will have to experiment and find the best setting for your car.

    Went to ambala and chandigarh for a drive this weekend, also got two alloys replaced under insurance as they were bent from inside. Had a really nice time driving back in night with my projector headlights, which are very bright and i am totally satisfied with it.

    Got my car detailed from Auto Xpertz today...
    I must say experience was good... Though I was expected a bit more from them on exterior (swirl and scratch removal) but still the results were far better than what I would have got anywhere else... They made my 2009 MJD look like better than a new one... they are for sure professional... Give them a try for sure...

    @Jotinder... Can you also let me know from where did you get your headlight modded??? Would def like to get dual angel eyes... look spectacular... and moreover as I drive regularly btw Delhi & Chandigarh now-a-days in the evenings/night they seems to be must for me...
