No! the warranty doesnt get voided since there are no modifications done to the existing setup. only the filter is changed with a long life, better quality filter

Great photography. You make us feel jealous.

I need to somehow convince my wifey to spend some more money for my beauty
Bnzjon! thank you!well those items are personally picked by me after going thru a large number of product listings on ebay. and the seat covers were ordered without even having a look at the leather, since i told sajith @ karllson that he is the expert and he would know best.

well regarding wifey. Linea is my wifey coz am still single..! so i can spend on her!!

It looks like these guys carry some of the best leather that is available in India at the moment. The 1.5 mm scandinavian leather from Karlsson is serious value for money as we saw in your beautiful Linea.

Stanley does not have such a premium range of leather as claimed and charges a bomb for an inferior leather called nappa. That feels and looks like plastic! but Stanley is still better than the others like ovion, pensee, cerralli, saddles, haiton etc who come no where close and their leather looks and feels very ordinary. But they all claim to have the best !
absolutely right hypercar!

Linea is officially my second wife. You know the first wife can never digest good things you do to the second wife.

So i need to be careful enough to ensure that my right hand doesnt know what my left hand does !

Just kidding, but wifey is very much upset with me that i spend for my second wife more than her.

Need a small help. I posted a question on my thread - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...ml#post1412909 (My Beauty ---> Fiat Linea- HipHop Black)
but didn't got any response from anyone except VP. As you are a unofficial Linea Consultant to TASS, can you please check it and advise?

No mention Vinay! as regards the recirculation mode not coming on after switching off heres your answer. the system where full Auto is selected - the system decides and controls everything. Semi Auto - it takes in a few user inputs for blower speed etc, but again all other parameters are system controlled. final one is where no auto/ no full auto - manually you set the system and it will come back on just as you had set it. it is the the same in swift, Civic etc!

I hope that if this happens, people dont blame it on FIAT.
