I was getting the error signal of check number plate light. Took it to concorde today. Was fixed free of cost. In addition, they did the ECU remap for improving the ACC efficiency. This remap is being offered on Linea and Punto 1.4. It has nothing to do with power output, and some settings in ECU are changed about which, the person doing the remap was not ready to divulge anything.

Hi NutsNBolts,

Did you specifically asked for the ECU remap? Can you check and update if this remap made any significant changes to the ACC and to the FE.

If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say that the ECU remap is to optimize the automatic A/C cutoff based on engine RPM. Anyway, glad to hear that the FIAT service is doing reasonably well.

Yes, I presume so too. The technician was quite fuzzy in his reply and above all, there was the language barrier. He probably would've explained better to someone speaking Malayalam.

A visit to the Golf club and great weather. Weather was too good to miss out a photo shoot. So here goes:

Thanks for sharing the fantastic pictures. The car looks awesome.

I wanted to share a concern about the scuff plates (kicker plates) you and J.Ravi have installed. You folks have to be especially careful about water/grime not getting stuck under them, because it'll start rusting really soon. Mind you, I do think that this looks great.

I saw this while I was helping my friend buy a second hand car in Canada. A mechanic later told us that scuff plates (specially after market ones) tend to have this problem. The problem in Canada was quite severe due to the salts used for melting the snow during the winters.

Thanks, Amartya. I shall constantly check for the rust and corrosion. These kick plates could be peeled off in such case.

Thanks for the heads up Amartya. During fitting, I realised that that the plate doesn't come in contact with the body. Adhesive line is the only place where it touches. Still, water has ways and means of getting into places. Will keep a look out

Thanks Ravi. Those kicker plates owe their placement to you.

Needless to say, the pictures are really awesome. You never fail to impress us with your snaps.

I do agree with Amartya. We had scuff plates in our Fiat Palio. We had used the car for a few years and the portion below the scuff plates showed some signs of rust. Better be careful brother. Btw, it looks awesome. I liked it.

Happy and safe motoring btw!

Thanks Amith. Thinking hard about scuff plates. Let me see a few months and will then decide.

I bought Linea scuff plates (only front) from KHT Motors, Bangalore for Rs.324 + tax. One box has a set of 2. They still don't have the stock for rear ones. Funny thing is that sales reps and spares guys don't know if the box has a set of 2
