    My Linea Gets New Amaron Battery

    A few hours ago, my Linea got a brand new November 2013-manufactured Amaron Flo 45 Ah battery costing 1172611d1385727909-cara-mia-fiat-linea-rupeesymbol.gif 4750 from Battery House, 162, TTK Road, Royapettah, Chennai 600 014. Originally, I was quoted 1172611d1385727909-cara-mia-fiat-linea-rupeesymbol.gif 4800, but when I mentioned Battery Bhai's price, the price was reduced to 1172611d1385727909-cara-mia-fiat-linea-rupeesymbol.gif 4750. Hope, my Linea will not throw any more tantrums at me! biggrin.gif

    The outgoing Exide battery that served me for more than 4 years and 71 k km:

    Chennai To Bangalore Non-Stop

    My Linea brought me and wife safely and comfortably to our Bangalore Basaveswara Nagar home at 3:15 am today. We left our Chennai Royapettah home last night at 9:30 pm. After a long time, I drove via Chittoor/Kolar route. I found new speed-breakers erected at Chittoor bypass before and after the statue tri-junction. Toll was not collected at Mulabagilu and Hosakote toll plazas. At Sriperumpudur toll plaza, when I gave a 1173128d1385850592-cara-mia-fiat-linea-rupeesymbol.gif 100 note, the toll-collector insisted on exact amount of 1173128d1385850592-cara-mia-fiat-linea-rupeesymbol.gif 45 as he did not have change. I said that I too did not have change. He returned the 1173128d1385850592-cara-mia-fiat-linea-rupeesymbol.gif 100 note and asked me to pass through without paying the toll! My Linea enjoyed for the first time a toll-free pass-through! biggrin.gif

    It happened with me too in the past when I handed over Rs.500 note. We should try with Rs. 1000 everytime to see their reaction. :)

    BTW, how was the road condition between Chittoor and Mulbagal?

    Thanks, Ramesh. I will try with 500 rupee note next time! ;)

    Very good, as usual. My Linea's average speed at this 2-laned NH 4 freeway was more and stress-free than that in the stretch from Poonamallee to Ranipet of tolled 4-laned NH 4. :( It's a sin to pay toll for this stretch. So, I never regretted not obliging the toll-collector with exact change.

    I think it's only question of time.

    Maintenance Cost @ Rs 1.48/km

    The cost of servicing works out to mere 1174920d1386236009-cara-mia-fiat-linea-rupeesymbol.gif 1.48 per km after replacement of factory-fitted Exide battery with the new Amaron after more than 4 years and 71,000 km. thumbs%20up.gif

    My son called me from Bangalore a few minutes back to inform that Linea started at the very first cranking after a month's hibernation and all the health parameters looked normal. smile.gif

    J Ravi sir i couldn't help but notice that you didn't refer to your linea as "my linea" this time :) like you have always done in the past.

    Is this the XUV effect :):)
