Nice pictures mate.

How was the GC ? did you face issues ?
Thanx bnzjon.

I am used to the dangers of the Low GC now and take good precautions. In fact, the picture where the car is near the River , there were lot of dangerous humps and stones and still i dared and took her down to the river. from over the bridge and dint have any issue at all.

Thanks Shenoy ! I may be the Leading mile cruncher on t-bhp for Linea Petrol ! I dont remember exactly who, but there is a Diesel Linea owner on t-bhp who has done justice to his investment

Hi Fastlove, Good to know that the Italian Beauty just got smoother

Wanted to know, if you have the information, how they re-setted the B&M, did they disconnected the Battery terminal or they did the reset through Connecting to the console to the ECU which they have been provided by FIAT.

What i heard is, that they can reset particular segments also from the console instead of resetting the whole system.

The ad was just a metaphor for your love with car and how it seems you don't like to get out of it. You though I was watching your jeans? instead of that gorgeous beauty?

Default Bonnet Replaced

Got my Bonnet Replaced on Monday, 15th Feb. , from Fortune, Nerul. Good Work done by TASS again. Also, i had my 3rd 3M Treatment due so had that done too while the car was in the workshop.

For the Bonnet Replacement, i had to take my car on Saturday to the workshop for Fitting and then on Monday the bonnet was Painted and actually Fitted as you can see in the pictures.

The Driver Seat Assembly (JAck) has been ordered for me for Replacement . Hopefully, that too will be done soon. Although , i have no major cpmplains with the Seat Adjustment and have got myself adjusted to the Seat

Fastlove, good workmanship and excellent paint job. Your car is glittering.

What is the 3M treatment you have done ? Is it paint treatment or surface refinement ?

I had done the 3M paint protection immediately after i purchased the car. I wanted to do it again but the guys at TASS discourage me saying that it is just rubbing and waxing. I am a bit confused and i am postponing my decision for the last couple of months.

i must say,you have maintained car very well . After 15K kms, bonnet is replaced but i dont see any difference in color between new bonnet and other parts of body which are already 15Kms old. Car looks as new as delivered from showroom.

Fantastic !

First picture - is that the old door ? Asking you because the stickers and the rubber beadings are intact.

Please post the picture of the bonnet back side. Does the new door has those beadings, bushes, stickers etc.

bnz - the 3M paint protection is just rubbing and waxing . they use some rubbing compound, do buffing , and just restore the shine and remove minor sirls scratches. The car does shine and look brand new after the treatment. However, this treatment does not qualify as "paint treatment" , i myself want to know more on where i can get that additional level of protection.

Shenoy - Yes, i do take care of the details when it comes to my beautiful car . I do a Wax polishing every 3 weeks or so. And rest is just my love for the baby that keeps her shining i guess

Yes bnz , the bonnet in first picture is old one. I also was wondering how the new one will look as the one (in white) that was tried on my car had nothing on it on saturday. But , the finished bonnet is exactly the same with stickers, rubber beadings, and everything ditto . I will post picture shortly.
btw, i havent compared apple to apple on the design, but i feel that there is a minor design change on the inside in the new one (need to investigate closely).

"Laal Chhadi maidan khadi" I wonder if this beauty was in minds of composers when they composed this song. Design changes in bonnet? That is interesting. Could it be possible that earlier reported bonnet bulges have forced this design change, if at all.
