Thanks bharti. I have realised how hard it is to maintain dark colours as my other car is in Black. Even the minor scratches gets noticed easiliy. So this time I didnt want to go for a dark colour. Vocal white color was like love @ first sight. I like the Flamenco red also however I saw this Flamenco red Linea during night before my purchase. At that time I didnt like the back lights because the owner didnt switched on the Fog lights and since it was night The illuminated lights were appearing quiet small (also may be because of the Red body color and red light). I discovered later on that the fog lights looks good if switched along with the normal lights.

Morever on the dark colours the scratches made by cleaning the dry body surface by a cloth are easily visible, which is not the case in white color.

I dont mind about the Dealer experince now. Some of them are hopless people. They dont understand the value of a new purchase to a customer. They are just concerned about how much money is going in their pocket.

I have still not recieved the Photo they clicked during delivery of my car. I dont think it should take more time then my getting Smart card (Registeration card that I recieved last weekend.)

Thanks Aks.

Is it so ?. I wonder if you are not behind any firewall. (might be a case if you loging in from your office)

I tried to use TBHP's insert photos feature but that doesnt give me an option to place the pics between the text.

Note from the Team-BHP Support Team : Please use "Multi Quote" option for quoting Multiple posts, instead of creating another back-to-back post.

Wow, one more smitten by Italian beauty! Congrats Sachin!

If Linea & Punto sell in good nos, Fiat will be forced to open exclusive dealerships & service centers.
Hope it happens sooner than later!

@ Sachin,

Aap aaye bahaar aayi
You chennaites see, a delhi Linea owner has joined the party with me.

Wonderful review mate, nicely done snaps, white looks so good on Linea dont know why they discontinued vocal white to make way for bossa nova white.
I still like the V white more.

I was thinking of asking you today as to why you havent posted a review till now, but the wait was well worth.

Enjoy the admiration...

However it doesnt let me change the order the way pics are posted.

Thanks Coolboy for the Good words . Yes I could be another addition in the Delhi Linean's club. Also I had this intuition that If I dont post a review today You might me . So posted well within time.

I understand 3 reason for discontinuing this color

1. This color is not present in the global colour palette. So they must have started with Bosa nova white.

2. The current TASS doesnt have expertise to give the matching shade on the repainting jobs arriving at their workshop. I heard a TASS paint supervisor saying the paint is from Asian paints . The OEM for this paint is BASF and repainting job consists 3 different coats @ a specified temprature . I would still say as on today its not TASS's cup of tea.

3. (One a lighter side) Fiat must be getting a lot of pressure from other Car manufacturers including TATA to discontinue this color as it must be hampering their sales

On the other hand if your GF also like the Vocal white color you can borrow my car for a ride with her .

Congrats Sachin.
Nice pics at the president house.
White looks gorgeous and yesterday i had the pleasure of seeing first Linea in black in person and that is hell gorgeous too!

Advice- Only 2 smileys per post is allowed on t-bhp so you need to keep a check on smileys.
Till then keep smiling in your Linea!

A fiery message was coming your way if you hadnt posted the review in 1-2 days. Binsar trip has happened long time back dude.

It was a bad decision is all i can say. Techno had offered me a ready delivery V white Linea petrol when i booked my car but pity my luck, if i didnt had the white scorpio would have bought this color for sure. Hope there is no problem for color matching by TASS in future for any white Linea owner.

howd you know that, she likes F red and V white and i bought none of that color . Dad wanted a simple sober color and had to go with him.
It will not be the color i would borrow your car, would borrow it for the MJD bro when petrol goes to 50-55.. Kadki kadki
