Finally saw the linea onroad. Great looking car, seems spacious too. Will be taking a TD soon.

Any chance of getting the performace figures with the Petes Tuning Box?

This is the one on PSI Motorsport site for Linea. May not be very different for Pete's.

I really like the car, its a tad underpowered for my liking but otherwise great VFM package, has amazing character also.

Hope the A.S.S works for this car, then sure they have a winner.

When does one get to See a Linea Petrol? Any fiat officials in any of the thread shed some light on this. There has been no answers coming forth from the dealers.

The wait is never ending.

Cool! Looks like it has good usable torque between 1600-4200 rpm. It is actually peaking at 2000 rpm.

Both the PSI Motorsports and Petes are using the same tuner

Petes is just importing PSI Motorsports device and relabelling as Petes.

Smile Buying Linea soon

Hello All,

I plan on buying the Emotion Pack Linea black colour in Pune.

I test drove the car and really liked it. It does take a little effort to overtake sometime but other than that it's great.

Am undecided between buying it from BU Bhandari or Pandit Auto. Pandit is Rs. 1,000 - Rs. 2,000 cheaper and located right next to my office. BU has been much more responsive and is promising a faster delivery date. If any Puneites have any experience please share them with me.

Thanks!

Apparently Concorde Motors, Prabhadevi will receive its first petrol TD car early next week. Last Tuesday, the sales rep had said that it would take another week to get the petrol car and on saturday too he stuck by the same.

IMHO, the instrument cluster looks classy. However this cant be said of the entire dash, but it is still better looking than the Fiesta's.
