    Thanks for the kind words everybody. There is going to some wait before I can actually do a road test. Primarily, the connector required for establishing the connection with the ECU has not yet arrived. I cannot do the road test before that.

    Secondly, I am scheduled to go to the dentist tomorrow and again on Saturday to complete the implant process. It might take a couple more weekends before I can actually post a video of the CC in action.

    @Raj29 - I am yet to even get started on the actual mod. You are most welcome to drop by and be a witness (assistant!!! :D). Will keep you posted on when I will be doing that. So far, all that was done was only research and testing.

    Great effort there Patchyboy, It was prasanna who started that thread and he did mention the same to me in one of the Hyderabad meets. Taking that as an inspiration, I search for the parts but at that time, But I just couldn't source them all.

    Do keep us posted once you got this configured. Once again, outstanding effort.

    Wow , this is an awesome mod. I simply love these kind of unique mods which add value to the car. So whats the update? is the stalk working independently? is the ECU holding up the signals?

    Yes. The stalk works fine. Problem is the connector to the ECU. I searched high and low all over Bangalore, but could not find it. I did a jugaad connection and the system works as expected, but did not have the guts to do any extensive testing, with a connection that could pop out any time. Finally found a source and have ordered the connector, likely to take 3-4 days to arrive.

    I will certainly be posting updates and a detailed how to, post that.

    Great. i was under the impression that it would need connection to body computer as well. Can you post the connection diagram. If it does then you would require proxy alignment too.

    Here you go buddy. The Linea does not need a connection to the BCM. The Punto does. This diagram is for the T-Jet. The pins are different for other variants.

    I can always do a Proxi Alignment. I have the necessary hardware / software. Even in this case, though the stalk starts working the moment it is connected, there is no way of activating the dash / MID display. One has to choose a different model, activate and do a proxi alignment.
