      Fiat Linea Emotion - MJD modifications?

      Hello,

      The new car came home a while back. Thank you to everybody on this forum that helped me out. My father and I were looking at some mods for the cars, maybe LED or speaker upgrades or anything creative and that would look nice.

      That car is Tuscan Wine. Help me out? Go crazy with the idea's though. I'll cut them down on my own to make it acceptable.

      Illuminated door sil plates is one thing you can do. For speaker upgrades, our ICE gurus will pitch in.

      Another thing I would strongly recommend is rear parking sensors.

      Congratulations Siddharth. Wish you many happy and safe miles with this Italian beauty.

      As far as ICE upgrade goes, you need to specify your budget. Only then somebody can give you advice. Otherwise, you are going to burn money in this area since once you enter it, you cannot get out..
      For starters though, I would recommend a speaker upgrade. Try out Focals, or Infinity / JBL series of speakers. Go for the component setup for the front at least. HU upgrade at this stage is not worth it since you would want your warranty and steering controls to stay intact.

      Now as to LED's that you need to check out yourself since only you know your likes.

      However, some sensible upgrades worth doing are:
      - Tyres! Change the crap most manufacturers give and shift to Michelin's.
      - PPF film in high impact areas like area under door handles (prone to scratches), front bumper parts, ORVM's, door edges etc. Just get it done from a pro. Totally worth it.

      Thanks,
      Simple_car

      The parking sensors, the company got it done for me. Didn't even think of it as something that was put in.

      Haha, I am new to this and you make it sound like an addiction. What is ICE though? I can manage 15k or 20k. More if it's worth it but it's a new car so I think I'll start small.

      I actually really like these tyres. I don't know, it's surprising.

      ICE: in car entertainment. With your budget, I think you should start by upgrading the speakers only.

      Believe me it is worth it. As with everything, you have to take some precautions of course. You'll have to replace these films every 5-6 years (earlier if you don't follow basic rules) because the adhesive turns yellow over time. After every highway drive, if flies are splattered on these films, clean them in a day or so. But they offer some very good protection for the paint for everyday abuse. Make sure you go for the high quality one's though.

      Thanks,
