already have a bad experience with skirtings and body kit for Swift and Sx4. used to end up at the paint shop every month to do the touch ups and the painter managed to buy a car for himself with revenues from my visits! ! it brings the GC down by almost 40mm. Not recommended for Indian Roads with the Great Indian Backbreakers and speed breakers

I had downloaded lots of B&M software files, many of them could be junk or in other language. Never tried any of them except for EcoDrive on my PC.

Can you tell me which website did you downloaded 5.4 version?

guys whoever is thinking of getting a spoiler for Linea- please don't!
Its a beauty and IMVHO the spoiler will destroy it.

If you guys rem the OHC Vtec used to come with a spoiler and it spoiled its looks and that Linea pic with the spoiler just suggests i am right.

Sunil, can you please post the procedure that you followed to upgrade the blue & me software. It would be very helpful since you have successfully upgraded to the new version.

Good question.

Its an application that you can download from Fiat site. Its basically made for Fiat cars. It will analyse your driving style like, braking, accleration etc. and will suggest you the best practice / tips which needs to be followed while driving to enhance your fuel efficiency.

To the best of my knowledge. Eco drive will have a log file created in the USB pen drive that we connect on the USB port in the dash of the car. Eco drive software installed on your PC will take all the details from that log file and will present you the analysis of your driving style.
