    Got the ecu updated today for my July 2015 linea, not much change observed. Was having a jerk in third gear at random around 1700 RPM . Drove 70km post updatedidn't experience any jerk. Hope it is resolved.
    Luckily the tuning remains unchanged with no turbo lag feel. Had good fun returning home via NH. Linea is really a delight on the highways.

    @linea4me: What was your ECU software version number before and after update?

    I couldn't see the earlier version number, but the current version number is present on the photo I took after update completed. I would suggest you to do update only if you are experiencing high turbo lag and jerk in third gear.
    The update process is like selecting the engine type (1.3JTD) and then flashing it manually. It is updated using Fiat universal flasher. (Fiat Bravo etc are present in the list).

    I'm experiencing low mileage after the update. Used to get minimum 16.9 to 18.9 ACA always, but it got reduced to 14.5 to 16.4 ACA. Yesterday had taken the car to FASS to retorque the engine bed due to some noise, where in they removed the battery. Not sure what is wrong. Will confirm it today after a highway drive.

    Vinit did you notice the version you got?
