Congratulations on owning a beauty!

Of late I've seen many Lineas atleast in Vashi majority of them in Famingo Red, 2 Silver and 1 black.

I wish they bring the Blue color - Beautilicious!

Finally, your "Chico Italiano" has arrived. But hey, 24 days are not that long for a car in waiting

one question - in Blue n Me, is SMS reader working with your sony erricsson cell?
I have a Sony Ericsson W880i and it works brilliantly with Blue&Me, including the SMS reader.
You may want to check your model for compatibility. SMS reader support is not available for some phones.

Blue looks really cool, they must bring this color to India.

I fail to understand why they are not bringing such colors to India?

Congrats on your purchase. Its heartening to see so many Lineas are getting booked. But as a palio owner, I have felt the pain of their dismal after-sales-service. I don't think I will buy fiat again in India.

Times have changed mate!! from worse to good and it is bound to get better in future. i know the pain of waiting for the spares during the initial stages of palio and its heavy pricing. But now due to indigenious manufacturing of spares and TATA FIAT JV things have changed. Try making up your mind as FIAT is the order of the day.

Well, as recent as a month ago I was not able to find the sun-visors and fuel lid from the authorized dealers. Four years on since I bought the Palio, the after sales still as dismal as before. I love the car, while its trouble free though

BTW, the red linea looks damn hot. Congrats again. I am right now in Poland, and see lots of Lineas, Puntos and Bravos here. Fiat is quite popular here.

Thank you all for your wonderful messages and wishes!

Rudrah - I have been making rounds of vashi as i still havent got my reg. number and enjoying the honeymoon period and the admiration!

I love the blue color linea pictures. but still red would be my first choice and then white and blue. The pictures i uploaded should be proof enough for that.

VP , my W960i does not support Message Reader atleast from what i tested so far. what fone do you have? also there is a setting in message reader that says "reader off" . just check if you have it clicked . if so , then you can select "visual & acoustic" option to enable message reader. i am not too keen on the sms reader though as the sms 's i receive are mostly of the censored kind i have transfered my phonebook though and that is a decent feature.

some more pics ..
