    Hi,

    After numerous discussions, test drives and poring over websites I have just booked a Linea MJD Emotion (Flamingo Red).

    Was graduating from Dad's trusted M 800 and had decided on buying a new car for our self. And with Dad helping out with Vitamin M was able to plan for a sedan. Love You Dad

    Priorities were good fuel economy, has to be a looker and should have good driving dynamics as I love to drive. Was a biker through my bachelor days and still game for long trips on my Enfield Electra.

    Well we shortlisted the following cars:
    (a) Vento - out of budget and doubtful A.S.S
    (b) SX4 - newly launched diesel model. but somehow i wanted a different
    product this time.
    (c) Verna - new model was about to be launched and was skeptical about handling part
    (d) Optra - Loved it, but shortage of Vitamin M
    (e) Linea - Wow that was the word which came to my mind every time i passed a Linea. Was in love with it from the day it was launched. And was ready to book it without a TD as well

    Finally booked a LINEA MJD EMOTION in 2nd week of May 2011
    Have been told a waiting time of 15-20 days

    Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome.

    Will post pictures when i take delivery of my car.

    Meanwhile planning to upgrade from stock tyres to 195/65/R15 for better GC. Please advice
    Also, should i get a Teflon coating, under body coating done as the dealer if offering the same as part of Value added pack

    Ps: Moderators if this in not the correct forum for Queries then you can delete this post will re-post on the directed forums.
  6. Warm welcome to TFI and congrats on your Linea.

    Welcome aboard npns

    Have a look here for the very important PDI check.

    And i would sincerely advise you to avoid teflon coating. Its not worth it, even if its free.

    Ride the car for a few days to determine whether you actually need that little bit of extra ground clearance. Because 195/65 R15 will give you only a marginally increased ground clearance, not much.

    Good luck and looking forward to seeing your car's pics.

    Gurjinder.
