Don't know about that, but its a bothering noise. Also, there is a distict difference in the ride quality (I can compare, as I drive both). Linea is miles ahead in this department.

More than the speed, it's really at high rpms where the Vtec "comes into play" and the engine develops an entirely different character. My OHC Vtec comes into its own above 4,000 rpms.

They claim that, they do more than 70% of the dealer work of Mumbai. I have a reson to believe, as I always saw brand new Skodas (with the factory sticker on it) coming for interior before even they are sold. Since its the 1st contact point, you get it cheaper than third party guys who may be sourcing it from them. They claim to have done more than 50 lineas already. They did my car in 4 hours (from cutting to stiching to fixing).
Remarkable,within 4 hours.
Definitley one of the good workmanship indeed.
Very well contoured and the rear head rest fitting is very neat.
I have seen some work by stanley,Ovion and karlasson.
But i like your's atmost.
I am in Chennai.Just enquire them whether they do work in Chennai or dealers.

Not sure, if they will do in Chennai. You can call and check. This guy has been doing this job for 5 years and all the guys with him are there with him since. They do one hell of a job. I recommend them to all for sure .

Good comaprisons with the ANHC. When I test drove ANHC after Linea, those were my exact feelings- little peppier and not even close to being as solid as Linea.

. Those are LED's. I guess a laser would just burn through the gearbox.
