    You will observe jerk when RPM crosses 1700 mark.

    Hi, you can check out some of the comments on facebook's FIAT MOTO CLUB's page regarding this ECU update. If you say that you do not have trubo lag I guess you already have the ECU update. Not sure how this can be verified.

    As far as I know,the ECU update is for 2014 mjd engines. Since yours is 2015, there is a high chance that your car already has the latest update

    Thank you very much for the link, it looks like my Linea has the update. From reading the post ecu update messages in the page, I'm also experiencing the same from the starting, no lag in initial gears also the turbo kick is not much felt.
    The test drives car I drove had severe turbo lag and good turbo kick after 1800RPM.

    But the 3rd gear jerk is present but not able to reproduce it( tested crossing 1700RPM on 3rd gear multiple times) but not present always. Will keenly notice it in coming days,before reporting it to FASS.

    I would recommend you to get it checked at FASS. If that ecu update has been done then you shouldn't experience the jerk. I drive 90 hp Evo and after getting that update there is no jerk.

    Thanks avithe. Congrats to you as well. Mine's magnesio grey. TW is also a great choice.
    Mine is 2014 make. PDI showed no issues and small ones were fixed. Managed to get a decent discount from Pandit before they closed down.
