Many more happy miles to go Ashwin! I checked about Osram in Kochi and was quoted close to 4K for H1 and H7 without fitting charges. 2.8K is fantastic.

@nutsnbolts

3.3k is the standard price at the authorised outlets. i wonder why they charge 4k?.

but getting from other wholesale shops are much cheaper. but there are also duplicate osrams available in market so we have to watch out

Lucky that nothing was broken. Only the spring and the connecting part was off loaded. They set it right and now working well.

Seems that the mirror in linea (ORVM) is designed to detach intoto rather than breaking in case of small impact. so the mirror console was merely detached rather than something breaking.

Saved me money though!. long live fiat!!

Even if broken the electrically operated mirror allong with the whole assembly costs Rs.1550+ tax which amounts to little less than 1750 rs

HI Ashwin, One Indica taxi guy knocked my right OVRM, and the glass came out of the setting and fell on the road and broke, So went to VST and got it replaced for Rs.300 only. It was a very pleasant surprise. Am sure you will be as well, as long as the mechanism hasnt been affected, the glass mirror alone can be replaced. Cheers.

Thats great. And even if the mechanism is totalled, it costs only 1700 bucks despite the fact that it is electronic ORVM. My dad had a similar experience a year before in verna and had to shell out close to 4.5k for his verna for the whole mechanism ( electrical)

Talk about encouraging road rage.

Its only a car my friend, don't be so attached to a machine on 4 wheels.
While i feel extremely sorry for the damage- you have to understand to try to live with these incidents in today's maddening traffic.

Ashwin, happy motoring !
Seems the Kms have slowed down after 15K. My car has almost clocked 18K.

Fuel indicator shows almost nil status. Please ensure that you dont run your car with near dry situation.

BNZ,

Yeah a bit slowed down. I dont want to sell my car at the end of 3 years at 1 lakh kms.

I have topped up the fuel. I once nearly ran my car dry. luckily linea has a mechanism that prevents airlock. The car stops with 3 litres of fule still remaining in tank so. when you refill again your car is back to normal unlike other cars where the airlock has to be released.

Thats a nice feature and i remember you telling me this information. I heard this from the TASS service manager too.

Please post the same in 'did you know series' thread for the benefit all Linea/Punto owners.
