Guys, let the man have a breather with his dream car.

'gratz man

Post pics when you feel like it. I know I took my sweet time just sitting in the car or looking at it from various angles after I brought mine home.

I hope he comes out of his linea, I am sure he would have taken at least dozen rounds around the car admiring each curve of it.
Enjoy your car mate.

Default Linea Got delivered and first impressions

Sorry guys it took us entire day to get the things sorted in the dealership, owner of the dealership gave us the red carpet treatment and service and his staff was overwhelmed to get things done.... so for a short job it took us better part of the day.
Then next on the agenda was the tire upgrade so changed the stock rubber to something nice and got kumho 195/60/r15 with good ratings of 340 a a that took some time too ... next step was to get some nice seat covers and we went to 2-3 dealers who took a good look and all the dimensions of the car valid for thier purpose but did not listen to what we had planned... since this is a new car we got mobbed at all the places with usual question and some ppl even had a snobbish tone that they use with sales guys.( they mistook us for fiat sale team or such? oh well!!!).
The drive home was gr8 and since i took delivery form ludhiana some 60 km drive from jalandhar i got a taste of hwy too .... now in us/canada i had driven all the usual suspects e.g.honda toyota etc. and some exotics like jag ,beamer,merc,stang etc but in india and after vista this car did give me some goosebumps...butterflies in the tummy ...that adrenaline rush.u know the feeling.. i was tempted to let it rip but then kept my instincts in check..
now the best part is the control and all round visibilty i got no point of time did i feel underpowered...gr8 cornering in residential areas.
I will post some pictures and more details as and when they come i am quiet tired now ... one thing that i would like to tell you about blue and me as i had used handsfree bt headsets and onstar services in us i did not think much of this feature but once i started using it i was gigling like a child and my son aged 10 loved this on the drive back i made 3-4 calls and before the evening was over i was hooked to talking to my car lol.
i got my camera handy and as promised will be posting all the pics i can post and as they say in daily sops dekhenge hum log but next time.... thanks signing off...

Congrats on the ride, and am glad you and your son liked the Blue&Me. It should indeed be a special feeling.

But why Kumho ?
