    Hi,
    Everyone carried out the PDI (thanks to Team Fiat and Gurjinder) in detail on 30 May and took delivery on 31 May from Basudeb Auto, Ranchi.
    Mud Flaps (not the Fiat authorised ones) and Mats were the only accessories i got.
    The whole experience was very pleasant and the entire staff was very patient with us during the entire PDI which took me 2 hrs including going through all features.

    Left for our home at Kharagpur (approx 230 km) immediately.

    However, had a terrible incident on the same day when just 10 kms away from home a dog came running onto out path on the highway.
    Couldn't avoid impact as there was not enough reaction time and plus there was a long line of trucks behind us moving at 50-60 kmph.

    The impact resulted in following damages on immediate inspection which was confirmed by the Service manager also post inspection at Kolkata the next day :
    (a) Lower grill and front bumper cracked
    (b) Left Fog Lamp and headlight supports broken
    (c) Slight damage to inter cooler fins

    Will be posting the snaps taken during PDI and delivery soon

    MODs: Please change the title to 'My Linea arrived'

    Tough luck, but shouldn't be a big issue. The damages shouldn't cost you much, hope they do it quickly.

    Congrats on the delivery.

    Sorry about the unfortunate incident you had.

    Cross check whether the intercooler plumbing is in top shape or not. Check for any leaks, just to be sure. Also a preliminary check of all the hoses etc in the affected area would be a wise thing to do.

    Gud luck .

    Firstly congrats on the car. Dont let the incident dampen your new car ownership feelings.

    The insurance and the service center will get the car to its original shape.

    Enjoy many more happy miles with the Linea.

    Hey welcome to the league.... and have a nice time with your MJD. Don't worry much on the accident. TASS should be able to set right that to its original format.
