good one Star vegabond and vp. already geeash, karthik and Bnzjohn are complaining that their Gharwalis kick up a fuss when they spend on the baharwali (linea). . i just met another linea owner while i was at my friends accessory shop. he was saying his wife checks his cheque book and bank account everyday to see if he has spent anything on the car. the guy gets stuck even if he issues self cheques and bearer cheques even if the names bear remote resemblance to the names of the car accessory owners. and trust me this guy is in his late 40's. talk about passions ignited when an italian beauty is around!

Guys, lets write a mail to Mangesh on a solution for this..ha ha.
You will never know, FIAT may be ready with an answer for this too keeping in mind the speed at which they are solving the problems these days.

In the meanwhile, got an information from the TASS that FIAT is moving their spares warehouse to a new location (TATA owned). That is the reason why spares are being delayed in the last 3 weeks.

Believe me my wife checks my credit card statements every month to check whether i have swiped anything for linea. Nowadays she also make sure that i return her what ever money i earn in a day just to keep a tab on my illegal spending.....

I have a few queries
i am planning to get one of this high pressure washers

How good is this star cleaner when compared to karcher and bosch aquatak 100plus?
What are the attachments you get along with it?.
What about the after sales when it gets repair?

Is it really effective in cleaning?

Aswin,
we could open a new service facility for FIAT Linea in Chennai.
Aready we have Vacuum Cleaners and have good knowledge about FIAT car issues.
you planned for buying Pressure Washer.Only some spanners and screw drivers is required to open a Garage exclusively for Linea
Think Aswin,we can start and compete with Concorde,VST and Tafe Chennai.

Geeash the star cleaner is very good. these people have dealers all over india as they are agricultural equipment suppliers. Bosch retails at about 10500 on ebay india.. dont have any idea on aquatak. yes its very effective in cleaning. as good as the pressure wash in the service stations. atatchments / accessories - please check their website

How much water does these pressure washer's consume ?
I stay in a 48 flat apartment. We have water shortage during summer and even cleaning the car with 5 buckets of water every sunday is criticised. This is because sometimes water is purchased from outside at a huge cost.
