I was in Wadala in First week of April & the place where I was staying(station road) almost all the cars (mostly sedans) had their logo missing & I saw atleast 10-15 such cars.

Default Body Cover, Floor/Boot Mats & Blue n Me

Always wanted to have Body Cover before taking delivery to prevent any stray scratches in 1st few days. Somehow could not get it & ended up losing Fiat badge.

Anyway, got official Linea Silver color Body Cover & official Linea Floor mats set with boot mat in biege colour yday.

Reg B&M issue, 2 days back I had deleted earlier pairing on my mobile & also in B&M system & re-paired it. It started recognising some of the voice commands (any MS product like windows - 90% of the issues get solved on rebooting/ restarting !! applied the same logic).
Also, in response to the complaint I lodged on Fiat website & mail to fiat & Tata separately, the dealership exe called saying he checked with fiat engg & the voice recognition system will start responding to other commands also in some days basis accent recognition ( don't know whether I've to get used to it or the system has to get used to my accent - either ways!!)

How much did the floor mat cost you including the bootmat? I paid Rs. 1,000 and did not receive the boot mat :(.

Got home my Linea (P) Emotion pk yesterday.

Got the interior mats for free. They said it was 1000rs.

Also needed a body cover ASAP because of dust problem near my house.
Had no choice but to go for the one at the showroom ... Rs.2500.
Its white in color, and they said that was was the only official Linea cover.

One problem, though .... The cover is custom-made for Linea, alright. But the antenna on the roof is getting pressed. Anyone faced similar dilemma?

Don't press the antennae. Its threaded & removable. Just rotate it, remove it & then put on the cover
there are 2 types of official covers available - silver & white

BTW, congrats. which colour have you got?

Oops another victim of Logo theft! Sorry to hear about it!
I've see a Linea without rear logo in Vashi. It kills the whole looks of the car!

Are you sure the cost of the logo is just Rs625? I heard from the TATA spares division that the Palio MJD Red logo cost more than 1000Rs and since Linea's logo is bit larger than MJD, it might be more costlier!

Call up the TATA spares division and confirm the cost if you haven't done!

Cheers~

Parts of Linea are hevily subsidized.
Even the ORVM just cost 1500. My ACcent and Getz ORVM cost around 2000 and that too it does not have an electric motor in it.

Yes, spares are quite cheaper. The front bumper costs rs. 2,500/- only. I thought because of the grill & the front looks, it would be costlier.

Here are the pics of biege color floor mats. Not very clear as taken in late evening with mobile phone. But while looking at it naked eyes it matches quite well with interior & seat covers

Are the floor mats by default in biege colour or is it an option ? IMO - biege floor mats is taking the biege theme a bit too far !
