Default Fiat Linea Jr., my latest acquisition

Today, I got my Fiat Linea Jr., delivered at my home from Italy! On 20 April 2010, I paid to Carmodel.net Euros 44.14 [including Euros 18 for shipping] using my PayPal account. An amount of Rs 2737.16 was charged to my credit card account. Within two weeks, I got my micro Fiat Linea delivered at my home! I am very happy to get the micro Fiat Linea in FTA, the same colour of my macro Fiat Linea. Here are some photographs.

I read somewhere that Norev is named after his owner's wife, Veron, spelt backwards. Perhaps, Ramalinga Raju, now in jail, got this idea from Norev's owner while naming Satyam and Maytas! This model has been designed in France, but made in China!

recshenoy,

Thanks. My camera is Sony Cybershot DSC-T900 Full HD 1080 12.1 MP. Used the closue-up macro for that shot.

The cute little Fiat Linea is die-cast scale model of 1:43 Norev. The doors/steering do not operate.

Thanks, Kapil, for the compliments.

Col KRK,

Your Linea model is also very good.

SDP1975,

Thanks a lot. Frankly, Fiat Linea provokes me to do that pampering!

Default Fiat Blue&Me Media Player Adaptor

This morning, I received Fiat Blue&Me Media Player Adaptor in well-packed mint condition.

Cara Mia Fiat Linea!-fiat-blueme-adaptor-001.jpg
I ordered in ebay.com on 7 May 2010 and paid GBP 73.94 through PayPal [INR 5088] inclusive of shipping. I am impressed with the superfast service provided by the UK-based seller. I was informed through e-mail notifications at every stage.

It is compatible with all iPod/iPhones.

Fiat Blue&Me Media Player Adaptor is seen in action in my Fiat Linea with my daughter's iPod. The iPod gets charged simultaneously while playing music/song.

Now, we can listen to uninterrupted music/song when going on a long trip. I am very happy and fully satisifed with the product.

I thought the Blue & Me adaptor was needed only for iPhone & iPod Touch, all other iPods could be directly interfaced with the usb port using the standard Apple provided USB cable. Is this not the case?

In my case, my Fiat Linea Blue&Me did not recognise iPod. So, I went for Fiat Blue&Me adaptor. Now, my Fiat Linea is receptive to iPod!
