congrats man. silly koshun - but the only way to make out a petrol/diesel - is to see the front of the car?

I've never been able to figure out lineas on the road while driving, unlike other cars.

Congrats BTB! Very good choice of color. Every time I watch a Linea, I find it more beautiful!

Cheers,

Congrats buddy,

You are absolutely right.

Be realistic & Choose the MJD diesel.

A nice practical choice.

Enjoy the driving & do post the pics after modification.

yup....little badge proclaiming it as a mutijet on the radiator grille or lack thereof will tell you what lives under the hood!!!

apart from the sound it makes when it drives past you....

Congrats BTB!

Very nicely reviewed and within 'realistic' parameters, too.

Love the photograph of the wheels with the FIAT alloy in red.

Drive safe!

congrats on the buy. Nice descriptive review too.
Every time I see the pics of the red Linea, it just makes me drool!
I am awaiting my Red Linea (P) this weekend.

Haven't seen many on roads yet and many of my friends (non-car enthusiasts) haven't even heard of it. I think, once people start seeing it on roads, there is no way they can escape from its deadly charms.

It's raining Lineas on team-bhp !! Just look at the first three pages, the threads whch were updated recently are rather well populated with Linea deliveries. Looks like Fiat's resurrection is on the right path. Hopefully A.S.S. will improve and seal the deal.
