    Congrats. How much did it cost to you. Whats the condition of tires and battery. Please do check the rusting issue. Run the car for few kms (say 2k) and get major service done with all the oils and belt changed (unless you can verify it being changed in last service).

    please post few pics

    Hi guys. Now I am feel not comfortable with bass. So I asked a well known car accessories dealer. He told me to add an amplifier and a tube woofer. He said it will be good. But guys I want to know correctly guys. Can you suggest me will it be good? Main thing is I don't want to change blue and me head unit. Please suggest.speakers are good. But I am bass lover.

    if you are not changing the head unit it will not affect Blue and Me. if you want to change the headunit to a touch screen you can look into virtu india website they have compatibletouhscreen head unit for linea and it will not affect blue and me i think.

    @Rishik7 if you are looking for good quality woofer, tube is not the one you should be choosing mate, get the conventional box type.

    Cheers,
    Pradeep.

    The boom from the tube is really irritating, if you want tight punchy pass, go for sealed box.

    You can confirm that with @nkrishnap . He upgraded it if i remember.
    Suggest you to go for front component upgrade and subwoofer box with 4 channel amp and if you feel not enough, can go for better head unit. go through the first 4 sticky threads for ICE options used and choose depending on your budget : https://www.teamfiat.com/forums/in-car-entertainment.13/ .
    Kicker/Rockford Fosgate punch series can give good bass in budget. Focal, Morel, Rainbow, etc for good budgets
    Look at our classifieds, one member is selling a nice set of focal speakers, sub, etc . May be you can grab them.

    The moment you change the headunit, you will lose all the stock features which came with it. The MID wont display anything pertaining to the audio or the Blue n me will be displayed on the MID.
