Default Report at 45000 KM

Hello All once again..
I am back after my 4th Service and the car is having no problems. I had some issue with front left shocker and it got changed under warranty.

Did some new modifications.
HID's in front Head Lights.
Projector in Fog lamps.
New KUMHO 215/50/17 tires in same alloys.

Did 5000 km's with these tires and wanna really switch back to my previous 215/45/17 figure as these tires touch the rear fendor cover. :(
So for this issue there are few options:
Cutting/molding down rear fender
OR
Spacers in rear springs.
OR
Change the tires.

So i am going with first option as fender lining lining can be heated up at can be molded backwards which will not effect anything.

So moving on to HID's in Linea.
Its a good idea, IF you get them fitted properly.
I fitted the HID's in DEC,2010 and had no problems till the time i noticed that there is some dust coming into the Headlights.
This was because when they fitted the headlights they didn't fit the rubber covers which are there behind the headlights.
Now i went to the workshop, got a par of rubber covers and have fitted them, as we cannot clean the headlight before opening it from the front, which is not a good idea, i have fitted the covers so that it will prevent the dust from now on.

Next thing Projectors in Fog Lamps.
NO ISSUES till now.. :P

Now pictures..

WOW!! WOW!!! WOW!!! I just can't stop the Wow...on your car. Really awesome Brar...This is the work of a true enthusiast and my thumbs up to you, yaar!!!. Even I changed my OEM alloys to Plati alloys that I got from Ludhiana last month. Attaching some pictures.

I am really impressed with your projector lamps in fog and now the linea looks like a high variant luxury car. Just to clear my doubt. Is it possible to fix this projector lamp inside the headlight dome? Did you buy these projector lamps from Chandigarh itself or was it imported and is the bulbs available for these?

Hey Akshay,
I bought these from delhi, and got them installed for free from sec 28 shop from where i installed HID's in headlights... I will let you know the brand, as its written on the box, currently i am in office.. :P
They are high quality angel eye projectors.. and HID can be replaced if it stops working.

@jaisha8
Nice car, but one advice.. I think you should remove the mud flaps, then it will look more sexy..
Its possible to fit in projectors in headlights but you will have to open up the pasting of headlights which is not recomended as if during pasting it back, some gap is left, water and dust will start getting in your headlight...

Yes, brar several guys have told me that. But you know in Kerala there are frequent rains and even now it is raining. so by the time I take a small trip, the whole body side would be full of mud and dirt and I will have to do the cleaning myself. Atleast now I am saving a lot on cleaning at least.

Your drive is within city limit or do you go for long drive as well ? What kind of road you drive? I am asking it because I want to check whether you face the ground clearance issue.

I do lot of long drives, and many stretch I drove are worst. My existing Palio handles it very well. Earlier I was thinking of going to t-JET, which as 170mm GC, but due to the recent hike in petrol price, I have changed my mind and now I am looking for diesel sedan or SUV. The only drawback is the MJD Linea's ground clearance.

I think you can easily get it sorted out by changing the stock tyres to 195/65 R15. Those increase the GC of the Linea to 170 mm, one of our forum members "h14" has shown a picture of both the tyres, the stock & the 195/65.

Have a look at his ownership thread.

That's good to know. I'm guessing most of your driving is in the Delhi-Patiala region. The roads aren't the best, but they're decent around these parts. Have you faced any problems on speed breakers or the like ? To give you an example, my father has a Honda city and since he travels Chandigarh to Dehradun regularly his only problem on those roads is the low ground clearance. Is the Linea better than the City ? On paper the GC is almost the same.
