That's true Ashwin.

Commercially also it will not be viable for them to sell Vocal White as there will be hardly 100 cars sold in the shorter period when Vocal white was in production.

Probably we can get a empty can and ask concorde to mix vocalwhite for you and give it in a can

Dear Ashwin, If thats the case with vocal white, what do you say about my colour, FoxTrot Azure, where my car seems to be the only one sold in our city.

Madhu, your colour is still in production and will have a increasing sales over time. As the number of FTA colour increases, com-paint will come out with your colour as this will make sense in commercial terms too for Com-Paint.

As far as FTA is concerned, I think sales could be low for this color as Fiat is charging a premium for it. But surely, with time and newer versions, FTA also might be available in com paint.

Hello Ashvin, Congrats on becoming a senior BHPian! I have been following your and a few other linea/punto threads with great interest although I usually do not post much (I have a tough time keeping up with all the updates due to lack of time!)
I Hope that your service goes well.

Hi guys jut now i left the car for service ( 2nd free)

The issues:
1. a noise from back coming from nowhere probably from left rear door on getting down potholes
2. there is a tick tick sopund coming from my right front window and 3 tick sound coming on opening and closing left front window
3. headlight allignment issue
4. allignment car veering to left
5. wiper squeaking and wobbling issue again coming back
6. slight stiff ride
7. underbody inspection and dinitrol protection 2nd inspection
8. Engineguard scraping bent
9. gear knob vibration
10. a/c cooling ineffective
11. sound ( tak tak )coming from RHS front wheel occasionally

I got a shock of my life when they told me that 2nd service oil change will cost me Rs.4800/-

Is it so?. can others who have given their respective linea for 2nd service post some info on how much they have paid for the oil change please??

Had a 2hrs chat with mangesh kodalkar who had come to concorde to mee bnz jon and me.

will post what we had talked later

can some one please confirm
