I bought a new Euroclean power washer (car washer) for my cars. This is very useful and cleans all the dirt from the underbody and particularly from the grills where our hands cannot reach. It cost Rs.8500 but worth it to wash my 3 cars and the bike. Only thing you should have enough time to use it.

I wish to fix reverse camera and sensors on my Linea that a collegue is getting me from Canada. I read somewhere on one of the Linea threads that FIAT does't approve fixing these, but again some of the Linea owners have also fitted it.
Kindly requesting your advise as what should be considered and taken care of by the technician while fixing the camera & sensors so as to avoid cancelling the warranty of the car.

Kindly advise.

Looks cool.what's the price and where did you buy these?
I too tried to fix chrome strip of Tata marina in my car's bonnet.
But that one is not a exact fit.so i left out the idea.

Dude , liked the Chrome cover on the mirrors.

The Linea boot i think looks great because it has a clear and "Chunky" look which makes it look all the more elegant. The chrome strip takes away that IMHO.

Thanks Karthik. I got these through a collegue of mine who comes from Brazil and he also has a Fiat Linea 1.9. When asked he informed me about these accessories that are available. So I requested him to get me the Chrome covers, chrome strip and Aluminium pedal covers for the Brake Clutch and accelerator. It cost me $100/-.
