    Linea 1.3
    Hello all, I'm new to TFI.
    I bought a Linea multijet emotion diesel, on 31st december 2014. This is my very first car.
    Got this for 3.65 lac, mileage 73,500 kms, year 2010
    I noticed there's some problem with the timing chain, tyres, clutch, landing gear, wheel alignment and the music player and the rear bumper.
    I haven't got this serviced yet.
    Please Suggest me the perfect tyres for this beast, engine oil and suggested music system (HU)
    is it possible to get BOSE speakers and audio system installed in this?
    if possible, where can i get theit done, in hyderabad?

    First of all welcome to TEAM FIAT & congratulations for your Linea.

    I hope you have checked the problems which are available in your Linea before making decision to buy the car and you are aware of the amount which you need to fix the problems you mentioned.

    To overcome these problems, I would suggest you to check the history of the car. Check if timing chain is replaced or not and do check the history for routine service of the car.

    Timing Chain replacement will cost you around Rs. 15,000 approximately.

    Regarding the tyres & alignment:

    I would suggest you to change the tyres first and then do the alignment and balancing.

    For tyres you have these options and it will cost you around Rs. 22,000

    Michelin (Primary 3ST or Energy XM2) ------------ > Bridgestone (Potenza GIII) -------------- > Falken (Sincera 195 60 15 & Azenis 205 55 15) ------------ > Yokohama (S drive, C Drive & Earth 1).

    Regarding ICE setup I will let local members from Hyderabad.

    I think they come factory installed in select car in OEM manner. If you can find a used working set installation can be managed by any expert. However, you could buy specialist audio brands in premium category to get a great sound system.

    Please open a fresh query in ICE section/thread. There is lot of great choice these days.

    You are going to need a complete history of work carried out on the car. You can ask the dealer to give you vehicle service history details from their online portal (DMS).

    Thank yoy so much for the reply!! And yes, I was aware of the problems, the tyres are fine for now though, timing chain need to be replaced and four of the engine glow plugs are gone.
    And the sad thing is, it wasn't serviced in an authorized service center :(
    So there's no service history after the free services availed at the authorized center.
    But the car is well maintained.
    The problem is, my friend didn't use his car for more than 5 months before I purchased it.
    The car is equipped with Micheline( Primary 3ST) now.

    Hey! Thanks for replying.
    I tried finding the used ones, couldn't find any.
    Is there a chance to at least enable the AUX support in the present, default audio system?
    I've heard about it in the DIY thread, but couldn't actually get the plug cable required for that.
