But, looks like all the owners are keeping the Linea locked in their garages (atleast in Chennai where I am yet to see ONE Linea). Maybe due to the car attracting too much 'Admiration' on the roads.
Lets see. I have seen 4 Linea on road in Chennai so far. All were lower variant. I havent seen any E+ models on road yet. I drive to MEPZ everyday, I saw the cars near IIT, Guindy, Airpot, Vadapalani. My friend is getting his E+ in couple of weeks.

I just called up my dealer here. He said the vehicle has been billed and will be dispatched most probably tomorrow from Pune . 3-4 days after that the vehicle will reach the dealership. So finally my patience has paid off,i feel

I booked black E+ linea (petrol) on 7th feb and looking at the waiting period ( till the vehicle being delivered at the dealership ) seems to be averaging between 20-25days ( refer downsouth's post about nehamit's linea dispatch details and other Linea Threads )

You do have a point there. I do see a few ANHCs here and there, but certainly not enough for a car launched 6 months ago.

Still I am not getting the concrete answer from VST Motors,Chennai about my car delivery.
I booked Minimum Grey Linea MJD Emotion pack on 22 jan 2009.
Almost 1 month is gone.But they don't have any idea about car status.
I called GM and he told ,car will be delivered on or before 10 March 2009.
No idea when will i get my car.I paid full amount and i have to pay the EMI starting March 7 itself.
VST Motors sucks :( (seems I am having some bad luck,this is the third car i have booked in 1 year time after GetZ Crdi and Laura L&K (cancelled both due to some issues) )

any chennaities booked Linea Emotion pack in VST motors.Please reply.

Meanwhile Concorde Motors promised me to deliver the car by march 5 otherwise they will ready to give a temp car.
But i am not ready to cancel and book it again in Concorde.
I planned to wait.I am simply burned off

Karthik, you're not alone. i'm also yet to hear anything from the dealer. but as you said even I get regular updates from dealer saying vehicle will be handed over before 10th March. I'd booked E+ MJD on 17th Jan and that too I stay in Pune where I dont think transportation delay should matter in anyway

Anyone in Pune area has got MJD E+ yet?

I've decided to be patient and wait till 10th March. heck I waited for couple of years for this car to come out in the market..I can always wait for some more days

BUT..I must admit this waiting period is killing me

Man, once you get your Linea in hand, can we meet for a cup of coffee someday? I also have my eyes set on Linea, but reluctant to take plunge because I am still skeptical and our endless problems with Kinetic Sym Flight in last one year has made me take wait-and-watch stand! It would hurt me badly if I invest 9L in this car and it goes kaput. I will be overstretching my budget for this car, so want be sure before I take the plunge!

Even my cousin booked one on 20th Feb and has been promised delivery on 1st March or 2nd March latest (delay maybe because of registration)

Had booked a Linea MJD Emotion + on 18Feb, just got a call from the dealer (Concorde Motors) that it is in transit and would be ready for delivery on 2/3 March. Fortunately my eager wait ends in 2 weeks.

Hi!
Here in Ahmedabad, they are going to start delivering petrol E+ by 3rd March 2009, and as mentioned earlier, Fiat now produces enough E+ to be delivered before 15th March 2009 and meet the demand of E+.
Probably this is true for all other parts of the country also.

Had been to BU Bhandari service center in pune. 15 Lineas (Couple of Dynamic, one Active, rest emotion and E+) were there for PDI. One of the staff members said soon the delivery will be arranged to customers (May be this week) once they complete the initial inspection of the car.
