Talked with Iyengar Tyres regarding tyre exchange for the Linea. Goodyear GT3 costs 2400/- and he will take it back at 1900/-. Michelin Primacy LC costs 4600/-, so exchange price is 13500/- for 5 tyres.

Also dealer mentioned that Michelin tyres are not suitable for Indian roads and the side walls tear very easily and Michelin doesn't provide replacement as well. He recommended sticking to Indian made tyres than imported ones. Hoping to hear your opinion on this.

Michelin sells tyres in India with warranty! So what the dealer says is pure nonsense. margin on Michelin tyres is lesser compared to the other Indian brands. further the side walls will not tear unless you rip around and enter and egress potholes at speeds which can bend your rims.

here is the michelin India website and warranty Info: Warranty / Buying Guide / Home - www.michelin.in

just ask that learned dealer this: if the michelin Tyres were not suited for Indian roads how come Honda is giving Michelin tyres as OE on ANHC

here is the MRP of the Tyre primacy LC as mentioned on the website:

Sunil,
Congrats on the white lady . I like the color and envy the treatment you had given to it, be it Karlsson leather seats or kick plates ,... The list goes on.
I had read your thread in one shot, all 15 pages with a break on the accident linea. Thanks a lot for briefing on Karlsson leather, I could see the factory finish in it. Nice job.
I admire the way you pamper your car. The car's maintenance is a reflection of the driver's personality. Kudos to you buddy
I will join the Punto/Linea club once I am back in India.

Sunil, I'm currently contemplating Karlsson vs Stanley. Spoke to them today they quoted 25,875.00 for linea scandinavian leather. Stanley quoted 38+ taxes for the same. What is your feedback on Karlsson ? Very valuable input!

Sorry to butt in. But just go back a few posts of sunilrj and its clear that Karlsson is the winner by far. They are much smaller than Stanley but have a tastefully done showroom in Indiranagar and carry exclusive leathers from Sweden which they import in bulk for projects. Their prices are unbeatable for the thicker leathers and quality is top notch. Guess their overheads are much lower than Stanley. At that price for Linea leather seats I would take it and run. I liked their exclusivity and honesty, Stanley has become too common and very expensive. Recently saw some MERU airport cab seats done by Stanley There goes the Stanley exclusivity !!! But Stanley are still better than the Indian leather guys like Ceralli, Ovion, Pensee etc . These are not even finished well and smell bad as the leather is processed locally.

Juss tried the Update 5.4 to Blue&me. the whole process took about 6 Minutes. the system looks much more stable now. typical microsoft ware! previously it used to blank out my Black berry screen for about 30 seconds saying "connecting to Desktop" that pain no longer exists.. also the 'Update' menu from the Blue&me has been removed since it didnt serve any useful purpose

Aswin,
I thought,it's not required for our cars.
Seems,our cars are already updated with the version or similar one.
Check the Instruction PDF,Before updation the MediaPlayer has been shown as 'M M Player'.
Now our cars are displaying 'Media Player' only.

Thank Bnzjon and Sunil

Is it OK if I go to the Windshield experts who put on the Windsheilds for the car. I saw their glue that looked quet impresive when it gets out of the Glue gun.

A-One TASS i really dont trust these people for any kinda job work. Would look forward to any other TASS for my first service probably ABS Motors @ Gurgaon or Techno motors.
