Default Linea Colors

  1. Flamenco Red ( I will go for this color, I am not allowed to take black (No No at home). Chrome and Red have a real good effect).
  2. Perla Champagne
  3. Hip Hop Black
  4. Medium Grey

If the launch is on Jan 14 then how are dealers displaying the car in their showrooms?

Quote:
The booking is open in bangalore
Even bookings are on!? Whats the booking amount being asked? Officially, prices will be announced on Jan 14 by the company so what prices are dealers quoting? And are they allowed to disclose prices before the official company announcement?

Watching Wheelocity on Zee TV now. In the upcoming cars in 2009, they said the Fiat Linea will be launched in 2009 with a 1.9L MJD engine!

Which world are these guys in? It's barely 11 days to go for the launch and by now the whole world knows the engine and specs of the Linea.

They also spoke about the i30 but kept showing the i20.

No buddy !! dealers are not quoting the price yet but taking a booking amount of 1L. But the best part was that there were three people helping me out today with LInea

1 Rep from the dealer and two guyz from fiat ( They had the linea t shirts on).... good guyz, very soft spoken and were telling me about all the features......

But i was equally good ( Thanks to Sid and Muneem) I was at par with those guyz !!! These guyz were explaining about the features, everybody in the showroom was just looking at the linea , even the guyz who came to buy tata wanted to try their hands on .....

i checked out the Linea today at TAFE. i was floored. and the best part was so was my wife. it appears to be a great car.. the interiors were snug - and the car seems to envelope you. the fit and finish inside is awesome - but there were some places which loooked like some cost-cutting had already hit.
I would need to test drive the car and finally decide... but looks like thee decision is swaying in that dirction anyways!
