15L all inclusive. Mumbai Registration. Also includes 2+2 extended warranty, 4 yrs roadside assistance, registration (custom number, non vip), taxes, insurance and freebies as mentioned (managed to upgrade to vKool70 for front). Model is 1.8VMT w/o the extra elegance/inspire accessory packages.

The new suspension is tighter, which makes for less scrapes, at least in the short TD i did have in it.

Delivery has been delayed for a few days, since all the cars in stock currently have rust on the disc brakes and I'm not willing to accept that.

It seems Fiat PUNTO and LINEA are becoming a favorite choice for car buyers. This thread could have been better if one was able to see the number of bookings for each brand.

balajeshi 23rd September 2009 12:17

My 15 days have gone i am still waiting for a response from Pre-rana absolutely no follow-up from them on the Punto ,i have called them up on Friday they said will call me back ,no response after that.

Had some function on the weekend in my native so came back today morning and called them around 11:00 ,they said will call me in no time back after checking with their manager ,still no response . Don't know how long they are going to take .

Another Linea MJD E+ in Family
So, its raining Linea for my family. Today booked a Bossa Nova White Linea MJD E+ for my brother-in-law. This one is the second Linea in my family. Waiting eagerly to keep both Lineas side by side in my garage! (Black and White!)
