    Did you try sending a mail to fiat-india??
    You can get the e-mail id's from the contacts section.

    Just drop a mail, see if it makes an effect... no loss there..

    Checked today. As I mentioned earlier, the plate is not metal but sandwitch-type made with different material. Its not rusting. Some bikers have scratched so there is a small mark of the upper layer peeling off
    :mrgreen: I asked as wanted to know if thin white patch of Araldite used to fill the surrounding edges of the logo - is it visible or not? :mrgreen:

    I think this is for sure quality problem of batches. I have seen this blackening in many Hyundai i10s and many other cars too but six months it too early. It spoils the look of the car. Not only the reflector, even the clear lens is affected. It could be because of water seeping in and the heat mixing with the moisture.If it is so, then it still is not our problem. It is a manufacturing defect. Take it up with Fiat. Only then they will wake up to this quality problem originating from the vendor

    The headlamp assembly is imported from Turkey. I saw stickers stating 'Made by Al Mako, Turkiye' in my Fiat Linea.

  10. Andy, who doesnt like smoked sporty headlamps. I am a big fan of such headlamps.
    The issue here are the black patches which looks like dirt all over.
