    Weeew sexy color. Stunning. Congrats absahu. Fill Diesel from Bharath Petroleum outlets only. IO's cheat a lot and their diesel is adulterated. If you feel the car is sluggish or under-performing, then it must be the IO diesel. I am telling you this from my experience. I used to fill diesel from IO and I always had complaints. Then I switched to BP and now things are fine. FIAT likes BP diesel :D

    Where in Bangalore you put up? Would love to see your car in Metal and Fluids ....(LOL..flesh n blood version) She looks gorgeous....

    Absahu, did the new color cost you extra?

    I am put up in JP nagar. Mine is Tuscan Wine. You can see the car in my display pic :). No i havent done any mods so far. Wud love to step up the performance of my HU though, i mean speakers rather. I want to put seat covers (ART leather) also. The seat fabric is the cheapest. I havent changed it yet.

    I am planning to take my beauty to a nearby 3M car spa...I have heard very good reviews about the services being offered there..How about the sound of your engine???Initially i was under an impression that relatively linea has a very low decibel level w r to other diesel cars but on the 2nd - 3rd day itself I feel the sound not very low...This is my first experience with a diesel car and I am not sure if the car is behaving normally or something unusual for which I need to be concerned...

    I love the voice of my FIAT engine. The gurgling of her engine is music to my ears.....:)

    ABSahu - Congrats on your new car! Really awesome color - have loved the shade ever since I saw the European Linea launch ad (think it's called the Fascination ad!).
    About the engine decibel level - yes, I felt that same. But after hearing a Figo & a Vento, thought that this was pretty decent! I may be imagining it - but I thought the sound level had reduced after the first change of engine oil :confused: Nonetheless - agree with Pammuluvcars - I love the grunt of the engine!! Especially the throaty roar, accompanied by the torque surge, after 2K rpm in the 2nd gear !
    I stay in HSR as well - hope to cross paths some time - will give a honk when I see your blue beauty :D Drive safe & enjoy your ride!

    Auto headlamps yes I have checked and its working fine without any issues...It helps a lot since my office parking lot is a bit dark and while going on the ramp I have to make sure to switch the headlights before on my previous car...It is quite steep so simultaneously it becomes lil difficult. But now it is very easy...
