@geeash, that sounds sensible. Yes go in for a good set of speakers. I am working out a way where blue and me will not get affected and still get an amp. Blaupunkt have cable adapters.

Hi ashwin. AM retaining the HU, the speakers I got are Illusion Electra components for the front and co axials for the rear. I have started a thread for iCEing the Linea and you will see quite an exhaustive discussion here.

There are a few options of adding an amp and retaining the HU and they have also been discussed in the thread.

Hey Pals,
In Today's Meet, i noticed that in my car there is an option in my Rear Bumper to towing the car backwards like the same as the Front Bumper.
But it's not present in others car.
Anyone has the same thing in your Lineas.

This rear towing hook is only there in SILVER and WHITE Linea.
Am surprised as to what was Fiat's logic giving it in 2 colors and not giving it in other colors? Am amazed.

Wow weird logic.
I know someone with a White Linea Emotion+ and can confirm the towing hook slot in the rear bumper as well. Didn't pop it open to check if it was a dummy gap though.

Slightly OT but, at what speeds do Linea owners hear wind noise? Hearing a noticeable amount at say ~80 kmph itself.

Thats really odd, are you sure there wasn't too much dal on the menu ?

jokes apart, are you sure you aren't hearing tyre/road noise ?

Not quite. There were 2 silver, 1 champagne and 1 red Lineas for the meet yesterday. Only 1 silver car of Karthik's had the hook.

My guess is that it's something to do with batches; only the earlier ones seems to have it.

Gears,
Red-One.
