    Hey japa thats great mileage you are getting. What is the speed you drive on highways that you get such outstanding figures.

    mileage

    on the highway once i shift top the top gear as far as possible i will never change gears,i drove from madurai to tindivanam changing gears just once !!! lock in the driving speed at around 80 if you are not in a hurry,you will get 26kmpl.if you cross 100 then the mileage drops a bit,but ive tested a number of times and at 80 constant the mileage is the best!this also prevents you from changing gears often,drive smoot ,steady and low or no gear change!! in city its a mad mad world and you can end up from 15 to 19 kmpl depending on roads and traffiic!!

    Tail-lamp cluster is imported, and hence, very costly due to very high customs duty and shipping.

    You need to search our forum, this post shall help. Forget talking to Concorde for spares just order it from here and get it fixed. No point in following with those guys.
  6. Any chance to check with VST ? I believed that they are having more stocks than any other centers in chennai ..

    done 55 k kms and spent about 95k in maintenence so far!! so works out to Rs.1.72/km major jobs were changed the ground clearence kit-28k,changed 4 new tyres yokohama super quiet DB 23k,changed to amaraja battery 4.7k,replaced brake pads twice @ 3.3k every time,and got the cooling fan chnaged FOC under xtended warranty. After the ground clearence kit change now it rides like an ambassador but has the luxury of BMW!!! awsome...but the earlier low slung ride was great and felt fantastic on highways,i notice a shade of body roll now after the kit change,vut overall iam a very happy man with my linea,it races like a petrol car in any signal and takes off like a rocket when the pedal is floored...would buy this car again and again.....

    just finished my 75000 kms service,now may car is 5 years old and i can, with great admiration say that the car is as good as new drives just that way and the engine is gotten much smoother now after the nice run in.cost of overall maintenence Rs.2/ km for a 75K kms run ,Ive spent about Rs.1,55,000/- so far on maintenece in the last 5 years all done from Ambattur RDC Fiat worskhop.They are pretty good and I continue to get things done there.I have a quirky feeling that the Line which I got first in 2010 was much better in road handling and low body roll but after I kept hitting the speed breakers etc I got the suspension kit upgrade which evetually raised the ground clearence ,now no hits on speed breakers on any bashed up roads,but the body roll has increased and the driveablity on the highway does not feel the same ,road hugging old linea is gone but thats the compromise we have to make for our roads!!!I face no other issue with the car gives me still 22 on the highway and 18 in city roads!!
