the colour difference which you guys are finding in shade is because fiat linea comes in two shades one is lullaby blue and second one is fox trut azure where the lullaby blue is more deeper and vibrant and the later one is more pastel shade.
So, which means that people who are looking towards more deeper color that is Lullaby blue may have to wait for more till that color is introduced in indian market.
I hope now the thing is clear like water

Wonder if it applies to cars booked in August & yet to be delivered! In that case I could also be eligible.

Does anyone have any news/update on this so that I can fight my case with my dealer in case he comes up with some weird excuse?
any dealership normally will give you the offer which existing at the time of the delivery, not at the time of booking. I remember, the time I've booked my palio, the dealer specifically told me this. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes you are right, even it applies to if someone booked a car at lower price and if at the time of delivery the price increase or decrease than the later will be valid.

The offer is valid only on the Active variant, not on Dynamic or Emotion. Hence I think, most of us in T-BHP who have booked their cars in August would not be able to take benefit of the offer, assuming that none of us are really interested in Active.

Yes, I called up my dealer since I had taken delivery in August, hoping I could gate a refund! He confirmed the discounts are only on Active and Dynamic. He also mentioned that with the discounts on Active some potential Punto buyers are now considering Linea Active.

I have been told that I should get the car by last week of August, but honestly I am giving myself the entire first week of September before I loose my patience.
Latest update on my car:
It has yet not started its journey from the factory. Well as per the last information from the showroom guys, it was supposed to start on last Thursday, but it won't until Monday morning - 3 days behind schedule.

Reason: Don't know - that's what the showroom guys had to offer.

Well, don't know what to expect.

Just saw the Fox Trot Azure Linea at Rama motors, Okhla. Looks gorgeous! Maybe if you have the time, you could check it out.

Managed to visit Rama Motors Okhla, met Aditya & click a few snaps of Linea in Azure. The pics aren't very good but sort of does the job, IMO.

The color does have a lot of grace.

Wow!!!

Awesome shade, looks much much better than in my silver for sure.
Am not banging my head for this color as have a azure santro in the house, saw a Techno grey Linea on road yest and i asked myself- dude why didnt you wait for more colors, it was looking very very good.

We initial Linea owner have paid atleast 15-20k less than new buyers so we have some consolation prize atleast.

After seeing these pics I felt disappointed by Fox Trot Azure color on Linea. It looks lighter than what is there on Fiat Global website

Also, the 1st pic shows Punto in Exotic Red side by side with Fox trot azure Linea. And I like Exotic Red between the 2. Somehow Red seems to have Deep Gloss & Shine, may be because its darker
