Default My "Medium Grey Fiat Linea MJD D+" is home

Last Thursday, on the eve of dhanteras, i took the delivery of my much awaited Linea MJD. And the more I see of the Medium Grey shade, the more I fall in love with her!

The dealership experience I had with Concorde Motors was quite good. I was in touch with Mr. Sandeep from Concorde Motors and he was very cordial throughout the delivery process.

I have a small kitty left with me to spend on her. What do you think would be a better choice -
  1. Change of stock tyres - I'd be doing around 1500KMs in-city driving + 500KMs of sub urban driving + 500KMs of highway driving, per month on an average. Should I change to Primacy LC or are the stocks good enough for an average driver!
  2. Get a good seat cover and interiors done
  3. Or anything else you'd suggest for a budget of about 20K.
More photos to be posted soon, as I do not see Medium Grey Lineans on the forum.
Cheers,
~Satyam

Congratulations. Medium gray looks really great on her.

Please post the purchase and initial ownership experience, freebies etc you got.

That's a lot of driving you'll be doing every month. What's your requirement from the tyres - comfort or performance ?

Congratulations. Good color (a bit rare). Suits the car very well. What was the on-road price?? Changing the tyres is a good option.

Have fun, drive safe.

Congrats atilla, the car looks stunning!
aks_karthik, are u sure that it is emotion variant?
I think it is Dynamic Pack since it doesn't have chrome strips on the side and on the window pane.

Congrats on the Linea! The car looks hot in this color... kinda sporty!

Get some gun metal finish mags and then you have the hottest Linea

Congrats Satyam. Great looking car. I feel you should stick with the stock tyres and change them only once they wear out. As per discussions on the forum. Primacy doesn't seem to be cut out for long life. You can also look at Goodyear Assurance when you plan to change.

I have seen one or two Lineas in this colour and I must say that the colour is just right - the businesslike colour offsets the sporty lines perfectly leaving one with an impression of understated aggression. I love the way the shade changes from dark to light depending upon the angle.

Cheers,

Your's is the first M.Grey Linea in forum.It is a FIRE or MJD?
Expecting the shade to be more darker, but have to see in real flesh.
Regarding the tires,better to upgrade them as soon as possible before clocking miles on it.
Klarsson(spelling) seat covers seem to be the best fit. Check out other Linea thread.
Anyways congrats on the ride.
