    Is it necessary to do an under body coating on linea?
  2. i dont think so, i believe Fiat already does a coating on the underbody from factory.

    I dont think it will serve any purpose either.. I have got it done myself and every 2 months i just check the under body there is hardly any impact , if driven sensibly.
    So dont waste money on this.

    +1.. if are living along the coast line or make regular travels to theses areas..then its a sensible investment.. still.. why not.. u have spent lakhs to purchase the cars.. why not spend a couple of 1000's more??!!??..
    Why yearly.. correct me if i'm wrong..3m gives 5 year warranty..

    i dont know about 3m and i have done it in TASS and they charged me 1700 INR and asked him about the brand he told me Bardahl,now i dont know whether bardahl also deals with paint stuff :)

  9. @Ganges: Looks like no protection is left on it at all...
    Did you see a proper paint layer when you took the delivery after the Under Body Treatment???

    @binoyn: IMHO, It is recommended to get the treatment done... even if you do not need it.. What's the harm in getting a protection???
