My Beauty ---> Fiat Linea- HipHop Black
Finally, after a research of 2 years and 3 months, I have my beauty parked at my home. During these 2 years, I have seen most of the cars in C segment and when this beauty was launched, I just fell for it. But was bit reluctant due to fiat past in India. So, just waited and then I saw a lot of owners coming together in this forum, talking everything about Linea. Read about the way, Fiat is serving the customer and felt it worth taking a risk for this beauty.
Interacted with few Linea Owners and then booked Linea – Emotion. We were sure on color – Black.
Sales guy informed that he is getting a few cars soon and black Linea Emotion is also there in it. But I have planned travel on 4th i.e. today and told him that I will take delivery either before 4th or after 18th. Sales guy messaged me my Chassis + Engine Number but got little apprehensive with it. Manufacturing date of car is April 2009, but THANKS to Linea Owners who gave me confidence to go ahead with it.
Took the PDI checklist and when reached the showroom, the beauty was standing there (they brought the car to showroom for PDI). Went through most of the point in PDI checklist and found few issues like –
• Bonnet opening lid (near the driver seat, below steering) is loose –
Explanation given - Pin is missing, will be replaced
• Battery - Protective Cap on positive contact was broken
Explanation given – Will be replaced
• Interior fabrics near door handle and below floor mat is dirty
Explanation given – Will be cleaned
After PDI sales guy took the car for registration. I went home and evening, came back with friends & family to pick the beauty. Again went through the PDI checklist and checked all the electrical fittings, went through all the papers and finally signed and took the key.
Did a small pooja at showroom and put my foot on accelerator. Went for a small drive and brought it home as I have to pack my stuff for my travel.

Car looks very good in black but you will have to keep cleaning and waxing her so that it retains the shine.
Any doubt, feel free to interact with us Linea owners.
Enjoy the admiration.. It was a long time since we had a new Linea addition and here comes a black beauty.

Welcome to the Linea club!
Keep posting updates/questions ... I am sure Linea owners @ TBHP have discussed ebverything under the sun already.

Thanks all for the wishes. I am really excited about it and Team-Bhp forum on Linea has motivated me to go ahead as for any problem, the solution will be around the corner.
I couldn;t enjoy my beauty much as I have to go out of town again but during my initial drive I noticed something. Mine is 1.4 FIRE engine and when I push my accelerator, there is sudden push in acceleration when speed crosses 40Km/hr and RPM touches 3K. Is it regular.
My sales guy didn't told me any speed limitation for initial run, so I am not sure on that also. haven't check the manual yet

Congrats on your black beauty. Can you share the price breakup (more interested in cash discounts given and freebies).
I am getting quotes on 1.3 MJD Dynamic Pk. Somehow i have feeling that Prerana is giving better deals (aka cash discount).
My last quote from Leaseplan had a discount of 12000/- on ex-showroom price on Linea 1.4 E+. However i've changed my mind and now i'n going for MJD

I got the following deal from Prerana
Corporate Disc - 14K
Extended Warranty Free (Cost is Rs.5350)
Floor Mat + Mud flap + Teflon body Coating Free
Sunfilm - 50% Disc
I am yet to get my Sunfilm + Mudflap + Teflon Coating. I just took delivery of my car on Friday. Dealer promised me (have in writing) that remaining stuff will be done when I give the beauty on July 18 (after my travel)
