There are some codes mentioned in the bill which shows the manufacturing month and year. Like A - Jan, B - Feb. But i am not sure which letter stands for which month. You can ask you dealer and he will let you know or contact Fiat help line number and they will guide you.

You are right, A stands for Jan.

The concorde motors Sales guy just called off the bluff, now he says the cars will get dispatched by 10 March and delivery after 14th. Keeping my fingers crossed so that i get it before 31st March.
God know whats holding back FIAT from taking Linea to full throttle production, if they are struggling to produce modest numbers they will sweat if numbers swell beyond 2000~2500 per month.

See, On Sat I saw 12-15 Linea at my dealership for PDI. That means FIAT is deploying cars as fast as they can. That guy told me they are getting 5-10 Lineas daily for PDI (May be exaggerated number). Is it like, your dealer is giving it to somebody else who is ready to pay for quick delivery. Just a thought !!

Hey Luky,
Fiat is going full throttle, but seems like they are unable to meet demand. I am buying mine from Concorde, hyderabad. The overall experience has been good but they have pulled a similar one on me. I have already waited for close to 3 months now. I have decided to go for a Flamico Red than wait for the Black I prefered.

Oh also I might add it takes about 7 days for the cars to reach Hyderabad and I guess Bangalore should be 10 days. You might want to recheck on the 3 days delivery in Bangalore.

Concorde in Mumbai had promised me delivery by the 10th of March. Last week they mentioned that they are expecting a truck load of cars this week. Apparently deliveries are now happening at a fair clip which fits in with the feedback from others.

And today they sent my invoice to the car leasing company with the engine and chassis numbers. Delivery to Mumbai from the plant would probably take a day and they are expecting the car to be at the stock yard by Wednesday. Will keep you guys posted with more updates.
