Fiat had launched the Linea 'Monte-Bianco' in Brazil Turkey etc. These comes with spoilers and a roof mounted DVD player in addition to all the existing features like, park sensors, rain sensors, dusk sensors, cruise control etc. This is really a cool car as you can see from the pictures below and dont know if they will launch this in India. But you may notice that the Ground clearance is very low and maynot be suitable for our roads (especialy monsoons!!!)

This looks cool. Have looked at it earlier. If I'm not wrong I'm sure one can get add on kits abroad. However am I glad they don't have the beige dash top for the cars here.They reflect really badly on the windscreen I prefer the black.

The spoiler looks very enticing. Maybe in a few months...

I'd love to own the Linea 'Monte-Bianco'!! It looks so beautiful and sporty! The body kit is really awesome. Fiat should at least sell this here as an optional kit. I'm sure they'll find enough buyers.

Here is the Making of spoilers for Linea in the factory, I suppose. Also after the finish. These photos from Fiat brazil website. They also have chrome covers for the rear view mirrors & metal covers for the accelerator,brake & clutch.

spolier is really cool.
I already checked with my Dealer and some known car decor shops for any Linea accessories.
But no one have this right now.
I am searching for good spoiler with brake light,Sil Plate for all four doors and trunk.

The spoilers for Linea are yet to be available in Indian markets. I could ask my collegue to get it from Brazil but he'll have to carry it all the way and then I'll have to do the same to get it to Trichur. Not worth it. Probably I would wait till it is launched in India as any other spoilers would spoil the beauty of Linea.. But I have asked him to get me some accessories like Chrome rear-view mirror covers, steel pedal covers for accelerator/clutch & brake. (Pictures attached) Also a chrome strip that comes on the boot of Linea (which is not in the Indian version). Apart from this I am going in for a Rear view camera c/w monitor that I believe would be useful as Linea is a long car. The rear-view mirror alone wouldnt be enough.

I heard that now Hyson motors in Trichur has started delivery for Linea. So I believe we can get the service done there from now on, of couse if my dealer gives the green signal. But is it okay to do so, because if there is some claim, will the original dealer wash his hands off saying that the service was done by Hyson and you have to claim it there. In that case I would be shuttling between the two. Please advise if it is safe to do the servicing through anyone else other than your car dealer from whom you bought the car.

thanks for answering my query. i love those 17" alloys. i live in ahmedabad. the roads are not that bad here so its gonna be awesome.

Have u checked for the prices with FIAT or would you be buying it from outside. For 17" it was 22000 for a set of 4 in Trichur. How much does it cost there?
