  1. @ All - I will get the delivery tomorrow 12PM. I am planning to postpone the filming for few days just to check if there are any rattles etc. with factory settings. Thoughts? I will take the car to Poona motors to check car seat. I can save time by doing seat covers and filming at the same place and same time.
  2. thats good news.
    all the best.
    take good care of the car.
    drive safe have fun.

    the setup from the factory as it is in my punto when i used for 5days did not give me any rattles. even after getting the film thing done. i was beside them and telling them do properly and carefully, i never faced any rattling issue till date..

    hi sly cooper,

    congratulations !!! for the owner of Linea MJD E+ (T.W.)
    what is the Kreb weight of your beauty ? as Fiat India site shows as 1210 Kg.
    did you get the previous Linea with 1291 Kg ? or a dieted one :)
  9. @Hillram - It is MJD, Emotion PK, Tuscan Wine
    @dadasaheb - To be honest, I havent checked the curb wt. So far I am just admiring the beauty, enjoying the driving pleasure and going thru manuals:).

    Wow factors -
    Pune -> Mumbai, 166 Km, Mileage returned is 18.8 km/ltr :dance
    Asked the fuel station guy to feel up Diesel till Rs. 2500. The tank was full @Rs. 1700/- :cool:

    I will soon start my ownership thread with all the details.

    @All - I have one question, the steering wheel vibrates a lot @ 110 Km/h. Is this normal? I could feel serious vibrations and in fact if I loosen the grip a bit then it keeps on hitting palm like oscilloscope. Any idea?
    I will be starting return journey tomorrow.
  10. get your wheels balanced. that will solve the issue for sure.
    the vibrations will be gone. get it done as soon as possible as it might loosen some bolts in the steering rack.
    does the vibration start at 110kmph??
    or starts some where lower and gets higher as you reach that speed??

    a small advice.
    dont rip your engine past 2200rpm for the first 1000kms atleast.
    that translates to dont cross 100kmph..
