Great going buddy...Car is getting gorgeous day by day.
From where did you buy those mud flaps?
I am yet to attach them on my Linea.
Unlike the usual ones I think the one on your car is smaller and fitting on to the car very well. Please mention from where I can get the same.
Also your first impression on the after sales service at Hyson motors. If I am right you had already approached them once for service.

@ Amit

Yes TASS paint it. You got to have good releations with the Service managers. Or some money will help .

They paint mudflaps, Rear parking sensors etc etc.

@ Jaisha

The Blue eyes for your Linea are from Delhi right ?

Vahanpujari, I got my mud flaps painted by the local painter itself. I can give you a brief detail on it. First he applied 2 coats of plastic primer and let it to dry. After drying he applied the base coat for vocal white and after that the final metallic finish of vocal white was painted. Actually I didnt get the Vocal white and so got Peal white and mixed it to the nearest vocal white finish.

Yes, nicesachin I got the blue eyes (Philips crystal vision 4300 K) from Delhi. I am extremely thankful to ghost_rider for taking all the efforts to get me this bulb and couriering it to my home town.

These bulbs are much more powerful then the originally company fitted bulbs. Also the white light looks great and different...

GTX007, I bought these mud flaps from RF Motors, cochin/ angamaly. If you are from Angamaly you can contact the sales executive Biju in the RF Motors, Angamaly showroom and he will get it for you. From where did you buy your Linea from, is it from Concorde?
I am yet to do any service at Hyson. My remote key was not working properly and hence i showed it to them. MY car has run only 3600 kms now and service is long away. The 1st service I have done at RF Motors, Cochin itself.

I have done only some minor works at Hyson. Yet to do the service as my Linea has run only 3700 kms as of now. But I hear it is good. Atleast we have only this in Thrissur or else you have to go to Angamally or RF Motors, Cochin. So I opted for Hyson.

Nice ones Jaisha, Linea looks like a timeless beauty. Is there a way to source those chrome fittings in Kerala?

Kapil, I got these from Brazil. I haven't seen any in Kerala. In fact some of my friends who has accessories shop in TCR asked me from where I got these. I dont know if it is available in other states.

I agree with fastlove here. The chrome strip on the boot doesnt goes too well with the looks. One of Linea's styling USP is clean, unclutterred back and the chrome strip ruins it. But then too each one its own. Beautifully maintained and well cared car

No Jaisha, I have not yet got the CSS replaced yet as there is no call from A.S.S. I will check during the first service. I was looking for chrome ORVMs, but I guess they aren't available.

Jaisha8,

what is that attatched to the AC vent ?

Also, I think Indigo CS comes with rear chrome strip like one you have got for Linea. So peopel can buy one here and try fitting in Linea

Just a quick question to those blue eyes, Are they legal within metros? Secondly dont they blind the vehicles coming in the opposite direction making it a traffic hazard? Do let me know.

Yes they are permitted provided they are 12V/ 55W. It should not be of high wattage.
Regarding blinding other oncoming vehicles, what do you do when they blind you with their powerful lights and dont even dip their headlights. I always use low beams and use the high beams only when I m blinded.
