    Hello Varun,

    Nice, is the work done satisfactory? Btw your car looks sexy man. I just love to look at it. One kind request, please keep her sparkling clean :D Then she is belluci hot :p

    As per the bill, what is this ornament?? Also the GC kit is pretty costly pal. Cheaper compared to other vendors? :confused (Out of curiosity QS)

    May i ask, what are those parts in the 3, 4 pic from bottom up. Did they even had to change Shocks??

    Now the Abarth can easily tackle the bad Dehradun roads! :)

    Do update about the difference in ride/handling.

    Thanks for sharing with so many pics. One of the most pragmatic upgrades. :)

    Kudos to FIAT for giving us such an option.

    @prakhar.well i don't feel much difference in handling,only problem i've felt is slight increase in body roll at corners,but it is acceptable to me.:)that day i met a man from dehradun,he had a punto 90 hp and was a fiat fan i.i advised him to join t.f.i,nd gave him web address.hope he will join our community.:ugeek:

    G.C increase doubts

    Hello, After G.C how is the slow speed ride over rough road.In some cases the ride has become bumpy especially over rough roads.Also this problem is experienced in 2012 model also.(my 2012 linea emotion has this problem)Also,apart from all shocks what all other parts were used?. Any G.C increasing spacers also used?:confused:.Please give details. I wanted to know whether I can go to 2011 shocks set without a decrease in present 185 mm G.C of my 2012 model Linea.
