I am also planning to put a sticker in the car which says " No eatables allowed inside"

Ashwin, this is too much. Thank God, that you are not collecting a fee from them for being in your car

Alternatively, you may levy a penalty for dirtying the car (or) could make them clean the car like what Karthik does

Guys,
Just take any one for a spin in Linea.
Once you come back and tell them that you are going to clean Linea.
Instantly they too come/help with you for cleaning the car.
Try your Luck.I did the same and got a good response.

as regards the anti-leak stickers that you mentioned, i havent said a word. what i said was, there are certain sound deadening stickers on the transmission tunnel which cover a pair of Symmetrical 10MM holes.

Broadway Mirrors actually provide a wider view and once you get used to broadway you will feel lost without it. invite you for a demo
Sunil, I meant the compressor cutting off/sleeping as you say, is normal even in my case. It hits the requisite temperature and turns off till the temperature rises again.
Since my ACC was pretty ineffective during the day, I did consider looking up the drain pipe.. however the compressor never cuts out during the day, its only during the night, so not sure if I have the same issue.

About the anti-leak sticker, I was referring to your post here : https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/1400280-post12.html . Hadn't read it properly earlier, but now understand what the context was

I'm nowhere near Mangalore, but thanks for the offer!

Ashwin,

I've placed idol on the centre of dash (somewhere near the point you mentioned near heat sensor).

Another thing, curvy dash won't be a big hindrance on keeping idol intact. You can use that Yellow, 2-way adhesive tape. It'll hold idol even on a curve

Here's where I put my idol.
Actually this is the only place on the dash thats not curvy. In this region, it's flat (you can feel it with hand).

thanks vahan.

The idol glows like that when i switch on the map lights near the mirror. Dont know how this happens. may be because of some internal reflection phenomenon. may be because of my garage shutter is red in colour...........

Geash,
May the Lord always protect you and your beauty from all bad eyes.
Idol really looks good, love to have one. Looks like you will lose the uniqueness.
