    Ravi sir why dont you try Linea Tjets clamp to lock the spare alloy. I think you should give a try...if it wont work then you have steel rim with you :)

    Thanks, shams.
    Thank you, abk1980m for the compliments.
    Thanks, kedarbendre. I thought of getting the clamp rod elongated by welding a 2" piece on top of the threaded portion. But, the problem is, with the clamp on the alloy spare wheel, the handle of the clamp projects above the floor level of the boot, resulting in an ugly bulge at the centre. If I keep a piece of luggage on top of it, it won't sit properly due to level difference. So, I have decided not to clamp the alloy spare wheel which just sits on its place without clamp.:)

    Ravi Ji, the Mugs are too good. No doubt about that. But, they are expensive (I would have never thought of buying it). But, still it shows your passion and love towards the brand "Fiat".
    Hats off to you.

    Thanks, ramjn.
    But, they are peanuts compared to some expensive, useless and bizarre mods!
    Yes. That's the price I paid for my passion.;)

    My Linea took us safely to our Chennai [Royapettah] home at 4:55 am today. Earlier, we left our Bangalore [Basaveswara Nagar] home at 11:40 pm last night.

    After more than 6 years, this time I took Kolar route instead of via Hosur/Krishnagiri. I took a tea break at Muthukadai between Ranipet and Walajah.

    Four lane stretch has been completed from Bangalore up to the start of Mulabagilu bypass. No toll was collected as still many works are pending like road furniture, signages, etc. Then, decent two lane road up to Walajah where it merges with 4 lane road.

    The quality of NH 4 within Andhra Pradesh was excellent including the ghat section. Monsoon rains could not do any damage in this portion.:up

    The recent monsoon did not spare even the 4 lane road. My Linea had to wade through sudden potholes, which were yet to be patched up. There were some bad stretches near Sriperumpudur and near Hyundai factory.

    I was thinking old Kolar route is not good, for night driving. But looks that also improved now.

    Cara Mia FIAT Linea did Chennai [Vadapalani] to Bangalore [Basaveswara Nagar] last evening. Left the origin at 4:15 pm and reached the destination by 11:15 pm including one hour food/fuel break at HP COCO pump/Arya Bhavan at Pallikonda and half-hour coffee break at BP COCO pump/A2B at Chinnar. Crossing Porur junction was a breeze at 5 pm. I found more buildings being demolished and roads widened there.
