Not sure but i think ACC , AirBags and ABS are also missing in emotion.
Emotion has ACC,Sun Blind at the rear, Rear AC, Sunglass holder

What Emotion Pack has extra is

Blue & Me,
Blue & Me printed at the Rear Sun Blind,
Steering Controls and
Alloy Wheels.

Congrats ManMachine for your Linea. About your views regarding Honda vs Fiat I would like to add that Honda is indeed good except that its cars are higher priced and they don't have diesel engines.

Congrats Manmachine on your Linea, you are bang on to say the FIAT Linea offers the true value for money in that class, Honda is good but again not in the vfm category..

Hey I believe in what Enzo says, I used to use that as my signature too...but these days its more to do with the Aerodynamics rather than the Engines...all to do with the FIA's hypo critic rules.

Fiat over Honda, that something unusual. But it clearly shows winning of features over brand name. Honda are you listening !!

Congrats for owning the beauty.

Honda has its own philosophy. Even at exorbitant prices, they'll give features only if they're compelled to (e.g. SX4 compelled Honda to give certain features). Sometimes in the same car they give some features in other countries but not in India. However, they've a large following in India () & hence are getting away with it & also will get away with Jazz pricing in all probabilities

Its definitely better to go for FIAT than HONDA IMO because FIAT has to prove people that its one of 'em so they have to get down on their knees but HONDA dosent have to prove anything.As for A** is concerned TVS is worst of all, those people are Heavy Headed i had lot of bad experiences and CAPITAL HONDA is way better but i have gone there 2 times only but for FIAT oh man what respect i get from security to desk in TATA TAFE Service House but their Sales Office is horrible.

About the parking Sensors they are from RD Sensor System, they are one of the best and they have got LED into the sensor.They glow in violet, Blue and when getting close they glow Red that really looks cute. I think they have got Black,White and Beige. They are based on Delhi i think...bet they have a dealer on GP Road if you want any help let me know.

Congratulations ManMachine on the new acquisition. It is a great looking car and your colour is quite distinctive and unique.

I loved the above post!

Your signature is a good choice too, it pretty much sums up Italian engines, they are quirky and 'not linear' but they are loveable for that very reason and produce great music when pressed.

Congratulations again and enjoy the Italian beaut.

Cheers,

@ Man machine,

Will it support all functionalities of BLU n ME? I read here that someone's boss bought this parrot thing after seeing it in his Linea and there were many things missing.

1. Will the music system shut off or mute on its own when a call arrives?

2. How will be the voice clarity in this system and how it picks up commands to call others.

3. Is there a SMS reader too?
And what is the cost of everything, please make sure your warranty doesnt get VOID by fiddling with electronics in the car.
Best of luck for after market blu n me prototype

Hey Man Machine
Where is ur office in Porur.?I ll catch you sometime.

BTW spoke to technokrat vijayanand.
He says
option 1
spend 35 k .remove the stock ICE get new hu,speakers,amp,woofers.But Blue and me wont work. if its a E pack

Option2
spend 20 k.get new speakers amp and sub for the stock HU.It is sufficient though.

I would go for option 2.if i have E Pack

am considering it for my friends soon to be bought LINEA MJD E PACK.

PS.Karthik are you listening about the ICE upgrade. I think Tecnokrat is near your place in Aminjikarai.
