    Krishna,

    You have set the gold standard when it comes to compiling a review. Brilliant! Loved reading it yet again.

    Cheers.

    Best thing is, he is nowhere sounding like a fanboy. He is just voicing out the pros and the cons. He isn't saying anything else. That neutrality is a rare quality these days.

    Few things I noticed -
    • The glove box opening/closing mechanism has been enhanced, it opens up nicely.
    • The lighting on dashboard is uber cool.
    • Side profile looks similar. Front and back has been facelifted. (Older design is timeless).
    • HU is now JBL (as told by SA), the sound quality marginally better, speaker upgrade highly recommended.
    • New Alloys looks awsome
    • Due to new dashboard design, little extra space on front side
    • The new dashboard is top notch, specially light color dash touch and feel is great to see in person.

    A few other things that I noticed today during the unveiling of the Linea facelift is.

    1. The blue LED footwell lights are not standard and so is the illuminated door sill on the multijet top end variant. The spoiler too is absent on the Multijet.
    2. The beep volume of the reverse parking sensors is adjustable through the my car settings. This is now integrated with the buzzer volume.
    3. The white Linea gets black grill, which makes it look better
    A couple of pics from the event today. Please excuse the mobile picture quality.

    But, the footwell lights and the glovebox light can be installed by FASS now as paid accessory?
