congrats on the car arsh. Where'd you got those alloys from in chandigarh?
A friend of mine was hunting for punto alloys recently and the 100PCD solution given by the stupid tyre dealer was that they'll just increase the hole size of the alloy a little to fit it on.

IMO, Linea looks best untouched. The body kit spoils the beauty. Although, blacked out headlamps could be considered.

The first thing that comes to my mind after seeing the body kit is it wont make it through even the first speed breaker even though the skirts look good on the car.

Hi brar.arsh, can you please tell me how much it cost you for the complete set of 17" alloys and the new tyres of your size. My brother is a Dr in CMC,Ludhiana (but his wife is from Chandigarh). So when he comes to Kerala next time, I can tell him to get one set for my Linea. Appreciate your help, pal.

Hi,
I have gone through this thread.I am planning to but a fiat Linea Diesel.

How abt the mileage and the engine characteristics after 35000 kms.
Whether you are feeling anything need to be considered while buying the car.

Kindly give your suggestions (Pros and Cons now at 35000kms) of Linea.

Prasanna, white on Linea looks very elegant and posh. Maintenance will be an issue in a city like Chennai where dust and pollution makes it dirty. Daily proper cleaning would ensure neat looks. If you are game for this, goahead.

Colour is a personal choice and liking. Suggest visit the dealers yard where all colours would be on display.

I moved from Vocal white (my old Linea petrol) to Sunbeam Biege TJet+. I personally liked both the colours.

TJet has a new colour Bronzo Scuro introduced from last week. See the below link (post no. 565)

Booked Fiat Linea TJET plus
Color: Bronzo scuro (my wife's choice).

Actually I wanted to get Bosso Nova white, but wife insisted on non-white/non-black color, I just gave up. Because all I wanted in Linea TJET+. color doesn't matter for me. Hope I will get my vehicle in a week.

Now I need suggestion for accessories.
1. Reverse parking sensors
2. Rear Spoilers - is it really good?
3. Sil plates.

Please let me know your thoughts on this.

Regards,
Prasanna

Congratulations and best wishes, prkothan. Here are my answers to your queries:

1. Rear parking sensors are really good. Recently, my Linea had them [Autocop] fitted at Concorde Motors, Dairy Circle, costing Rs 3900. You can get them fitted at the dealership itself to ensure correct position at the rear bumper and avoid warranty-related issues in future.

2. Rear spoilers: It's a matter of personal choice. My Linea does't have them.

3. Go for the Fiat accessory T-Jet illuminated sill plates. My Linea has them, of course, non-illuminated and Linea-branded!

Hi there!
I've bought a LINEA MJD on 30/03/11.The car is a true gem. The corners are just bread and butter for this car. The refinement levels are awesome too! The MJD sound different from outside and inside of the car. Total my car completed 787kms and is showing a avg. mileage of 17 on the highways.The top speed reached is 170 at 4600 RPM. I hope the car gives better performance as it covers more distance.I've got parking sensors free fron the dealer and many more such as idol,mud flaps,mats,perfume,etc etc.Here are few pictures of my car in BOSSA NOVA WHITE. And yea, I'M PROUD TO BE A OWNER OF THIS CAR.

Prasanna, congrats on your Jet ! Bronzo Scuro is an excellent colour.
Are you taking your Jet from Concorde Motors ?

1. Parking Sensors - Xenos is an excellent brand. They have a shop at Nandanam (HPCL Coco Outlet). You may meet Mr. Subramaniam who will do the needful. The sensors will be painted to match body colour for which he may charge you Rs. 300.

I fixed Autocop at Concorde. I had an offer and there were no accessories i could pick at Concorde. I got the sensors painted at Xenos (using my good contacts). Concorde will paint it but they charge a whopping Rs. 3500 (Yes; Rs. 3500).

2. Rear Spoilers - i really liked the spoilers for TJet but opted out for the fear of (a) rattling over a period of time (b) it is fixed using bolts drilled to the boot. Fear of rusting near the holes.

They cost you Rs. 3900 and another Rs. 5000 for the painting.

3. Sill plates - i got the illuminated TJet sill plates for Rs. 2490. They look classy. See my ownership report (link below) for the pictures.

Hi all,

I decided to buy reverse parking camera instead of sensors. According to me - reverse parking sensor is just waste of money in chennai traffic conditions. Here the reasons

1. Sensors start detecting the obstacles -even if its 3meter away. So in my daily use - 99% of time , the sensor will start making noise as soon as I engage the reverse gear !.
2. Sensor gives maximum beep at 0.3 M (1 feet). Actually the margin I operate in Arcot Road while taking difficult -3 point U turn is 5 cm to 1/2 feet.
So parking sensors just don't give any benefit to me. So I ordered reverse camera which I felt much better than sensors.

Cost: 6K
Make: TATA OEM (Minda) which comes with TATA safari.
