    In Sept 2015, I had incorrectly posted under Linea Classic thread :banghead:, 100k kms covered[/URL]. Mods please move to the correct location.

    I am thrilled to share that my graceful Italian lady has covered the magical milestone of 123456 kms today. It has been a fantastic journey over the past 55 months. Apart from my daily commute of 90kms, we have successfully completed several long drives with family and my pet beagle.
    The longest trip has been Indore - Bangalore - Kanyakumari - Trivandrum - Rameswaram - Madurai - Bangalore - Jog Falls - Karwar - Pune - Indore in a week. Heading north, we have done Indore - Udaipur - Jaipur - Delhi - Indore.
    Last year, we did Indore - Pune - Bangalore - Chennai - Hampi - Indore. On 2 other occasions, we have done Indore - Hubli - Kollur - Karwar - Indore
    Each mile in my Italian beauty has been thoroughly satisfying. Looking forward to 2.5kkms mark

    Thank you Fiat India.....

    Congratulations @xler. It is indeed a proud occasion. I am also from Indore (near Rajendra Nagar). Whats your location? With rusticnomad, we are 3 on TFI from Indore. What major replacements have you done so far? I am up for my 4 year service next month with nearly 40 K km on odo.

    Congratulations!

    Has the acceleration decreased over time or is it the same?

    Also, are vibrations and noise more now as compared to day one, or are those the same as the first day?

    Thank you @Ravi_M @Soumik @Ganges.
    I am on stock clutch and no replacements till date except for regular oil and filter changes. One broken taillamp was replaced.
    Gearshifts are harder these days. No issues with fuel consumption but acceleration is slightly reduced.
    I guess timing chain and clutch replacement is due now.

    @Soumik, there is no abnormal vibration except for some light rattling noise from the glove box cover. There is a small plastic pin that acts as a hinge. Thus part keeps popping out. Other than this there is no issue.
    Engine sound has increased. A thorough check of timing and cleaning of EGR valve should rectify this to an extent
