    Ravi,

    That's a very neat job & very cost effective at that. Else for this kind of job, authorised service station would charge nothing less than 15-20,000. Rear bumper alone would cost about 8-9000. Thats a very good place you found. Have to find such place in Mumbai, if at all it exists.

    Thanks, shams.
    Thanks, Amit. Even I was under the impression that rear FRP/PVC bumper had to be replaced and imagining complications that were in store for me due to non-availability of bumpers at FIAT service centres and consequent delay due to that. But, when Mr Khan of Sai Colorium explained that they would repair the same punctured bumper with heat treatment and informed me the estimated cost and expected delivery date, I was flabbergasted, to say the least!:D

    GPS logs of my Leh expedition

    At last, I converted all GPS log files stored in my MMI Lx130 navigator [wherever I had recorded] to KML format and downloaded them to my Google site. Now, after downloading a KML file, I am able to see the place/route covered on Google Earth. smile.gif Here are the GPS logs in KML format.
  5. Could you please post picture of your cars newly painted door in bright sunlight amy be froma distance of 25 feet?
    any colour mismatch would be quite glaring.

    Thanks, Ravi. Yes, I do recommend Sai Colorium. As you come from South End Circle, Jayanagar towards Rajalakshmi Kalyana Mantapa, turn to the right at the T-junction and take immediate left towards Sarakki Main Road leading to Indira Gandhi Circle, J P Nagar. Turn to the right at the 5[SUP]th [/SUP]Cross. There is a sign board indicating the right turn. It is located at the left near the end of the street.

    Dear Ravi sir,

    Great travelogue,you have made an history. no one before you has made this trip with linea and no one is going to do this after you.

    This is exclusive and unique.I wish fiat should honour you.

    whole travelogue depicts that leh was exclusively made for you and your linea.

    kudos to madam! for accompanying you with all those dark and exuberant times.

    it is typically like a movie with all those ups and down,finally happy ending climax.

    it is beyond the scope of words to explain your passion.

    Thanks a lot, linealover, for the superlative compliments and nice words. I saw one Chandigarh-registered Flemenco Red Linea twice at Leh. Fiat India sponsored a Leh trip comprising NCC cadets from Delhi in a Linea and a Punto. I am sure, many Lineas would visit Leh in future.:)
