    Finally I could take some time off to post update.
    It has always been my dream to own a Linea. This Diwali , thought of checking the offers for Linea . I drove to Fiat caffe at Pune . I had decided that the Linea would be a T jet Emotion. Surprisingly this time all the family members ( my parents , wife and 10 yr old daughter ) agreed.
    I asked the SE for T- jet TD. But they did not have one . He assured to check with other branch and would arrange for it sometime in the week . 2 days passed but there was no response . So decided to check at Pandit Auto , the other dealer of Fiat. The moment we entered the showroom , we were greeted by SE , Nachiket. It was a contrast experience and unexpected . 5 years down ghetto line , when Zi had been to the same showroom , then shared with Tata , the SE would ignore if one was interested in a Fiat.
    However now the scenario had changed . Pleasant surprise !!
    Nachiket explained the pricing of T jet and immediately arranged for TD . My daughter and parents too liked the car . My wife could not accompany us as she had to prepare for her mid- term exams. I had made up mind to book but still got a formal nod from all present. They nodded in agreement . Called up wife and she too approved !!!
    So , finally on Nov 6 , booked Linea T jet emotion NPW by paying a token amount of Rs 30,000/-.
    The subsequent week , the dealer had an event at other city resulting in no action . I completed the financing formalities . Finally in last week of November , I was informed that the vehicle has been despatched from the factory.
    I also checked for the exchange option for my Palio. However the dealer representative offered a paltry amount hence I decided to sell it independently . Fortunately , my wife's brother was also on lookout for a used car . So checked with him and we closed the deal . I was happy that the car will stay in the family only. He requested to retain the car for a few months until he learns driving . I happily agreed !!
    I was inpatient about the delivery . When asked about PDI , I did not get any response. Since I was also too busy , I did not insist upon .
    I told him that I wish to take delivery of vehicle on Thursday , 5 December . It was pain waiting for the delivery and more important , the final confirmation .
    On Dec 4 , I received confirmation about the delivery .
    As a part of the scheme for Nov , I received the absolute pack accessories . I did not get the door visor fitted . However the dealer informed that since it's a part of the package , he cannot exchange .
    Finally the day dawned, reached the showroom .
    Everything was organised well . The Pooja and key handover function took place. After completing the formalities , left the showroom for residence . Driving the Linea was a great experience and look forward for same in future.
    Overall the dealership experience was quite good though they could have been better.
    Following items were offered by the dealer as a part of the standard absolute pack :
    1. Mud flaps
    2. Beige mat
    3. Parking sensor
    4. GPS
    5. Door visor
    6. Chrome strip for boot
    7. Absolute badging
