    Hay guys want to ask one question here. Can we fit amp & woofer to the stock music system. It will void the warranty or not?
  3. Re: Enjoying Music More Than Before!

    Yes you can as long as you do not chop of any wire. The Stock HU on Emotion Pack is pretty good and an amp & component upgrade will do wonders in the sound clarity and quality.

    Yeah. I didnt put the Woofer and AMP, however I put the Alpime Oval speaker of 300 watts with 90 RMS in parcel tray. It sounds fabulous great bass quality. Thanks to ALPINE.

    Re: What do I feel after 20000 kms? And now After 45000 KMs.

    Well, It's been + 25000 KMs, now (Total: 45000 KM) since my last post on this thread and it's time to take my car to service station which is due tomorrow on 26th of Mar 2011.

    Fortunately my car has never puts me in any situation so far. I have driven extensively on long drives and sometimes I had covered more than 3000 KMs in a weeks time without any prior check ups. I totally believe in its potential and it has never let me down.

    However, there are few changes/upgrades I had done in the past:

    1. Switched to 15" Linea Alloys[/*:m:1izwm91r]
    2. Changed, Clutch Slave Cylinder as guided by Fiat India[/*:m:1izwm91r]
    3. Fitted Linea's Arm Rest[/*:m:1izwm91r]
    4. And recently at around 35K I got my clutch assembly changed.[/*:m:1izwm91r]

    Before visiting the service center, I have listed down few important things which needs attention and if attended properly, I'll be happily covering another 1000's of KMs on my Grandeur.

    1. Suspension Check Up, (I'm noticing thud sound even on small bumps)[/*:m:1izwm91r]
    2. Break Pad check up - If required will get it changed.[/*:m:1izwm91r]
    3. Feeling Tight Steering (May be wanna check elastic pad, as Power steering oil seems fine to me.[/*:m:1izwm91r]
    4. I do feel my steering wobbles on sudden braking specially when I'm on higher speed.[/*:m:1izwm91r]
    5. Will get change the AC (pollen) filter, Air Filter and Oil filter for sure.[/*:m:1izwm91r]
    6. Will get checked AC gas.[/*:m:1izwm91r]
    7. I'm also considering to get under body anti rust treatment done. But not sure If I will be doing at service center.[/*:m:1izwm91r]
    8. There are some scratch marks on right rear wheel arch, I hope it could be done on same day (I doubt).[/*:m:1izwm91r]

    As listed above, requires immediate attention on my car. Rest will be covered under routine 45K service check up.

    It's gonna be long day at Service Center (Fortune Motors- Nerul)!!!

    grandeur - your steering wobbles while braking coz the brakes need replacement. i hope you havent damaged your brake discs.
    Do check your tyre threads too and the hardness too. change the Gear box oil too even if they dont insist. underbody treatment is must in mumbai. get it done under your supervision from 3m guys at fiat centre.

    check suspension bushes, all chassis bolt should be tightened and seat bolts etc to be tightened with correct torque.

    i hope fiat will do their best.

    Long long tour. Its always my dream.

    Very true. FIAT cars whether Uno/Palio/Punto/Linea, they have brilliant handling and stability.

    I think except Delhi-Noida or Mumbai-Pune highway, it will be dangerous. So please don't do it again. But whenever you get chance to drive FIAT in europe, do it 100 times.

    I think it is quite impressive.

    Three cheers to FIAT for this. ::T ::T ::T I think hereafter FIAT will not give any chance to anybody to blame Service.

    Detailed and correct (as per me) summary. :up
    And ++++++1 to one more thing . Superb Photos. It is something different photgraphy skill. Each photo is looking masterpiece. :wow
