Does it say anything or add to the confusion?
@Wildon: I think you are closest to decoding the whole VIN.
@Vahan: Linking VIN and towhook was awesome!
My Fiat Linea 1.4 FIRE Emotion Pack Fox Trote Azure [VIN code: JPZ] delivered on 8 Oct 2009 does not have tow-hook in the rear bumper. While taking delivery, I checked other Fiat Lineas in Concorde Motors, Bangalore, having different VIN codes like EPZ/FPZ/GPZ, etc., of different colours like Flemenco Red, Hip Hop Black, etc., and none of them had tow-hooks in their rear bumpers.

Hi
Good to see the revamp with Karls Leathers.
Fit and Finish is neat but i am not liked the Diamond design stiches.
IMO, The orginal design will suit at the best.
Enjoy and drive safe

Nice ones vinay. I also got the Kaarlsons in camel color. I think he has done the same color for your car too. The workmanship is great and the texture of the leather lends a superior feel to the interior.

wow! very nice choice of color and design. Your Linea does not look like an 8lac car, but an 18 lakh one!!

How much did you get it done for?

That's the specialty of Linea..It doesn't @ all look like a C-segment Car.In Looks it really beats many of the higher segment cars . Only thing it lacks is the power

The upholstery looks old school (like a 60's cadillac).

BTW how much did they cost?

Wonderful work from Karlson. They are becoming popular and will pose a major competitor to Stanley

Default Thanks everyone

Thanks @cedizen. Karlsson did a wonderful job. Thanks to Sajith & his team

Thanks @Ferrari1976. Yep, I agree Karlsson do create a class apart.

Thanks @aks_karthik. The color & design was decided by decided by my wife. And I hope you agree, you cannot say NO to your better half.

@NutsNBolts - A speacial thanks to you. My wife saw your seat pictures and was very impressed with it. We earlier decided for black color but after seeing your pics, all got changed. Thanks to Sajith for accepting our change in color request at the last minute.

Thanks @theragingbull, @krreddy, @geeash, @nkrishnap & @vinaydas. We have spent a lot of time thinking & discussing about design and how it will come out with Sajith. He was very helpful and it was his effort & my wifey brain which resulted this lovely work.

Also I want to thank @achinthg for his valuable input during the design phase.

And now the final question, how much it costed. Well it costed a bit more than I planned - 30K.
