Excellant choice bnzjon. Linea T-Jet triumps as a driver oriented car when it is between Fiesta 1.6S Vs Linea T-Jet Vs Cedia Sports.

Have lots of driving fun and drive safe.

Congrats BNZJON!, great ride!
Getting mine tomorrow - Bronzo Scuro. First in Pune I assume. A blind choice but it has turned out great after i saw it arrive at the stock pile.
Had a question for all Tjet owners - is Idling necessary for the Tjet. Am used to it as I had a TDI earlier... but a petrol engine? GTO suggested it, anybody speak to your *** guys? any feedback.

Hey jaarockz

Congratulations on the T-Jet. What a wonderful choice. I am sure Bronzo Scuro T Jet must be the first one not only in Pune, but many other places in India.

Waiting for your own thread and lots of pics.

Wow. Congrats Jazzrockz. Nice to see real enthusiasts cars being bought on a enthusiasts forum ! Eagerly awaiting your report (more to see pics of this colour ). Maybe you could join us with this Jet here http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...t-pune-27.html

Regarding the turbo, YES, idling is necessary. This is mainly to cool the turbo. By allowing a turbocharged engine to idle, oil continues to pass through the turbo thus cooling it down.

There are 2 others who got delivery of their Bronzo Scuro TJets on 15th (Ranchi) and 19th Feb (Bangalore). I read their reviews in one of the Fiat Forums.

fiat_tarun said it all. So i am not repeating. The manual is silent on the idling but its better to be on the safer side and follow the traditional tried and tested method. No harm.

Bnz.. The manual indeed says that we need to give it some time before switching off after a "taxing" drive. So I guess it is indeed essential to leave it at idle for atleast 20-30 secs.Enjoy your jet.

Once I am back from the US (Mar 20) we will plan for some "long" trip. What say?

Hey those look really nice, they give a very premium feel to the vehicle.

That said, would you mind sharing the cost breakup? What are Lapel pins?

Man, that is really reasonable. One of my relative had inquired about the same for the Cruze and they quoted around 7.5k!

Nice sill plates there! I presume they are screwed in? And also just out of curiosity, are they hooked up to the door-open lamp switch? Or with the headlamp switch? The questions may sound naive but its the first time I'm paying attention to the illuminated plates. Look really great...
