    Hello everyone, I'm Edo from Helsinki Finland. I'm really glad I found this community and I will shortly tell you why.

    I'm Italian from Torino, so Fiat has always been really present in my life since Torino it's the place where Fiat has born and more or less everyone there have some connection with this company on some level.

    I moved to Finland in 2011, but I haven't owned a car until 1 month ago. Then I bought a beautiful second hand Fiat Linea 1.4 T-jet with 50 000 km.

    Linea is not sold in Italy and Fiat cars in general are not very popular here in Finland, so I couldn't find any Italian nor Finnish community as good as Team Fiat that could give me info about Linea in a language I understand (I think there's something out there in Turkish and maybe something in Russian).
    Of course here the environment is very different from India, but the car is the same so I think that's common ground enough.

    Since my car is not new and since every car sooner or later have something to get fixed, I think I'll read this forum a lot and probably I will ask you advices from time to time.
    I hope I can contribute as well and offer my help if there's any issue I can help with.

    I wish everyone a great day!
    Edo

    Hi Edo, welcome to TFI. Hope you will have a nice stay here.
    You have connections to 2 brands I love. Fiat and ( the erstwhile) Nokia.
    I have one question to you: I have read that people of Turin are understated. What is your take on this?
    I find it very appropriate in the product from Turin : FIAT cars do not broadcast all of their virtues and only the users of their cars get know how good they are.

    @limraj :
    strange question, but I kind of understand it even though I don't really know what to answer. Usually people from Torino complain about the fact that Torino as a city is much more interesting and beautiful than other more popular Italian cities like Milan for example. By the way I also think so :)

    @kk27 :
    indeed a small world!

    Same 120 bhp, here in Finland there are not higher tunes unless you tune it up yourself. So far I like it very much especially the cruise control feature, which is very rare on this model, but I had a couple of strange episodes with the brakes which maybe I will ask about in another thread to avoid the OT.
