well a complete cleaning would consume about 100 litres of water if used judiciously

Dang, thats really cheeeap. The JV with TATA is really good, gotta love those prices.
Looks like Linea ownership is cheaper than even Maruti also!

I broke it on my maruti zen while reversing into my house recently. Let me see how much that one costs (just to compare)!

yes...looks like Fiat ownership is cheaper or on par with Maruti infact the parts which would need replacement, accident prone parts etc are quite cheap. the front fog lamp garnish is Rs. 45/- the front windshield is 2850/-, the Mirror covers are 155/- or so!
