    Thanks, Sham. That's why, I avoided using the car cover at Bangalore, where covered garage was available. But, in Chennai, my Linea gets a thick layer of dust in a day. So, I started using the car cover in Chennai. To avoid the scratches, I dust off the car before putting on the cover and dust off the cover before its removal. Let me use it for a few days, and then, decide.

    @JRavi sir, congratulations on the 60K mark



    I use car cover for my Punto and it has a provision for antenna just like the ORVM's so i dont have to fiddle with the antenna. I got this car cover at the time of my car purchase from the dealer. Looks like Linea car cover doesnt have this feasibility.
    I have learnt the art of putting an removing the car cover alone but its a tedious job to dust the car cover and the car before and after putting the car cover.
    I have to use this because my car is parked on the street.

    Ravi sir dust and sand is more in chennai. It is always better to cover the car when we are not using them. Sir is the cover original FIAT cover. Because my Punto Cover has got the provision to cover the antenna as well.

    It looks like the Punto cover has the provision to cover the antenna as well. I have the OE cover provided by the dealer for my Linea. It does not have the provision to cover the antenna.

    Thanks for the compliments, raj29.
    Thanks, bharathj85. Yes, it is the original FIAT Linea accessory given as a compliment by Concorde Motors, Dairy Circle, Bangalore at the time of delivery. I was given the option of either sun film or car body cover. I chose the latter.:)

    Hi Raviji,
    Congratulations for your 60K Kms.

    Well my ride is almost now near to 60K Kms,the pleasant thing is that my ride is behaving good after 45K Kms. i.e. after 4th service.
    Now i'm nearing to 60K Kms the driving feel is still the same as though if i have done serviceing recently.Previously i can make/feel the sense of engine tiredness after 10K Kms 'the engine grunt changes'.
    I'm confused with the behaviour of MJD.
    1. Is this how MjD behaves ?
    2. My 4th service was with FASS.Previously it was all with TASS.is this due to skilled labours of FIAT exclusive service center ?

    one thing for sure my car have gone peppier now.

    Thanks, Ganges, for the compliments. The perceived engine tiredness could have been due to clogged air filter.

    It's time for a mini update. My Linea is hale and hearty after successfully completing 3.5 years with odometer reading of 60,480 km, factory-fitted battery and clutch. Today, I added ~200 ml of engine oil to bring it to the maximum level. I also cleaned the interiors and washed the alloys and exterior.
