    I always look for information and reviews before I buy anything. Cars are a major topic. Before and after I bought this snow-white (Linea MJD Emotion), I had looked a lot on net and had come across Team-BHP. How I missed TFI, I don't know. I am happy to be with the herd.

    This is my third car. I am 50+ and love driving. Have been driving for more than 20 years. First car was also a FIAT (Premier Padmini). Then I had a Tata Indica MPFI (Petrol) and enjoyed it thoroughly for 9 years. In my view, in that segment, it was the best car for one who loves driving. I made multiple trips to Mumbai.

    For my third car, I could not settle for anything less than Linea Emotion. I did TD Fiesta and Manza and even considered Verna and Cruz. I liked Fiesta the most, but Linea floored me. Cruz did appeal me, but not Verna. We all know the famous TVC of Linea. This is the truth.

    I have taken my snow-white to Vellore (3200 km total) in 2012 and enjoyed the trip thoroughly. Due to engagements, I am not able to do long trips, but shall do soon. I have not yet explored this forum, but, if members share their travel experiences, as they do on Team-BHP, it will be very useful. Ignore this, if it is already being done.

    I have read in detail about new Linea 2014, but not yet seen it in the showroom. In Indore, FIAT has opened a new, nice showroom last year near the Tata outlet, where FIAT shared space earlier. I hope this new showroom and the new Linea will improve the sale. Though, I prefer the old appearance (timeless), the new one looks contemporary.

    I wish you all and FIAT India, the best of success.

    You could take inspiration from him and others who have their travelogues posted here. Alternatively, if you are planning to a long trip, do open a thread in the relevant section and post questions. Members here will help you with planning routes, road conditions, eateries, resting places etc.
