    I havent been using my linea much since the alloys got bent.....

    The odo is just at 85000kms....

    Im planning to go for steel rims instead of alloys because after the suspension upgrade, there is lots of negative camber for the front wheels due to which whatever you do rims will bend.

    Thats why if steel rims bend u can always straighten them.......

    Alloys bend for many reasons

    Low profile tyres....
    The inner side of the alloy doesnt have any support so any hard hit wit rrdult in a bend......
    Also if there is negative camber, the weight is concentrated towards the inner side of the rim....

    Alsk our indian roads........the main reason.....

    Hi Jayakrishna
    I too am smitten by my Linea MJT which i bought recently. Considering your driving appetite, i can anticipate that your Linea must have traversed atleast 60000 Kms by now. Can you let me know which are the essential components which you have replaced apart from the filters that get changed during the routine service.

    Regards
    Shivendra

    The steering rack gave away at 30k replaced in warranty.

    The hydraulics used to lift the boot had a leak so replaced in warranty.

    Suspension upgrade at 70k....

    Front brake pads every 30k kms...
    Rear brake liners once at 66k kms.

    Front disc rotors at 60k kms...
    Front windshield replaced in warranty due to a sudden crack ( manufac defect)

    Recently at 85k the turbo hosepipes....


    Thats all.
