Now for the extras that i did 9K for tire upgrade and 7k for seat covers next project is to get the filming done.Waxoyl coating is also set for today and the dealer has again outdone himself by arranging home service ...thanks

Agree! Along with Old Corolla and Fiesta 1.6S, these are indeed fab OEM alloys.

Great pics there. The car is looking rich! And Kumho thread pattern aint bad either.

Happy driving

Bftw where did you get your cars shoes done from- Bakshison or Monga.
Thank u baiji sorry for late reply and vadaiiyan veeran nu vi ...the jal-ludh hwy is too congested these days so could not let it rip.... but did test is agility and handling in tackiling those big red ugly trucks.... still getting used to passing trucks on the wrong side as i was used to us/can freeways where trucks do not block cars... a good buddy of mine gave me a tip that do not be fooled by the steering being on the otherside we still pass vehicles as you do in NA...
The tires were done from monga and he did give me a smoking hot deal both times for vista he gave me 1800 for stock tires and prices for Michelins was 3625 so for 5 tires and 4 alloys i paid 18300 ... for linea i paid 9000 for all 5 kumho's in exchange for 5 gt3 the worst tires on this car... i loved the new rubber ride is plush, planted and very very quiet...

Very nice ride mate. Congratulations on the brave decision made to go in for a just launched car. With all the rave reviews it is getting from the press and everyone at T-Bhp, may it turn out to be a delightful decision.

Please keep updating this page since I would be checking often and drawing from your experience to make my opinion of the LINEA.

One good thing for me was the capturing of the LINEA and your friend/relatives VISTA in the same frame. Puts the size in perspective for someone who has not seen the car yet.

Wishing you all the best.

holy crap!
in the third snap indica vista looks bigger.
is it just me who thinks so?
i think it might be a visual effect due to the angle and place from where the snap is taken.

Very very classy looking automobile! It really is a "neighbour's envy, owner's pride" sort of possession. I'm sure there'll be a lot of people in your city doing double takes when you drive by.

Many congratulations, and welcome to the Fiat family!

Cheers,
Vikram

^^ I was thinking the same thing! Why does Indica look so big.. rather Linea look so small!

Oh, Congrats Vancity!
