Thanks for the reply in advance,

Update:

The car cross the 80,000 kms mark on the odo after a couple of trips to Nagarahole and Salem.

Added the diesel additive during the last tankful For now the idling is slightly quieter and observing lesser smoke.

Got a set of new rotors and brake pads. Was observing shuddering under braking and the wear warranted a replacement. Since the set is not too costly did not bother taking it to the lathe and skimming it. Got new brake pads as well in spite of the current ones having around 6 to 7 mm of thickness left. Have kept the old set with me as it will used on another car.

The car completed 5 years this month on the 4th of September. I have extremely busy and could not keep the thread updated.

Got the insurance renewed for the 6th year from SBI General Insurance for 10,573 bucks with an IDV of 4.6 Lakhs.

Milestones

Did a few trips in August Thanjavur, Kabini and Muthodi which helped in increasing the odo reading.

A few pictures taken enroute.

Current issue on hand. Slight wobbling during braking. This started post the rotor replacement. I will get this checked along with bearings to ensure things are covered at one shot.

Hi Krishna,

My Linea Classic Plus came with basic ICE. Is it possible to upgrade so i can have AUX input?

Also, do the rear seats of the Linea Classic Plus fold flat? I tried all possible ways but in vain.
