      My Favourite Fiat Linea

      Meet my favourite Fiat Linea 1.4 FIRE Emotion Pack Fox Trote Azure. I bought her on 8 October 2009 from Concorde Motors, Hosur Road, Bangalore. She has run 6700 km in 8 months.

      Actually, I did not pamper my Fiat Linea with any accessories as it is fully loaded with features. So, I bought MapMyIndia Lx130 navigator in November 2009 and Fiat Blue&Me Media Player Adaptor from ebay.co.uk recently.

      Now, we are enjoying uninterrupted songs and music from my son/daughter's iPods especially during long trips.

      Already, my Fiat Linea has visited places like Mysore, Chennai, Pondicherry, Goa, Mahabaleshwar, Mumbai and Pune. Many more trips are on anvil.

      My Fiat Linea has also got a new keyring with Fiat logo. I received it from UK, ordered in ebay.co.uk. The cost of this item was GBP 6.99 + shipping GBP 1.25, the total amount being GBP 8.24 [Rs 579.35]. Before ordering in ebay.co.uk, I tried in fiat.co.uk/accessories. They quoted GBP 10 for shipping to India, the price being the same. The desi keyholder costs Rs 1923.40 as per Fiat India website. So, finally I got it from ebay. Here are some pics:

      Another trip to Chennai to attend a marriage: We left home at Bangalore at 3:30 am on 17 June 2010, breakfasted at Hotel Saravana Bhavan, Vellore, as usual, and reached the marriage venue at T Nagar at 9:45 am. After delicious marriage feast, we reached our home away from home at Royapettah.

      This time, as I had plenty of time at my disposal, I decided to explore all the automobile accessory shops located in General Patters Road. I went from one shop to the other. I got strange feed-backs ranging from 'Fiat Linea? Imported car?' to 'Fiat Linea's accessories are not available now. Perhaps, they may be available in future'! But, in Jawahar Auto Spares, #37, General Patters Road, Jayapradha Theatre Complex, Chennai 600 002 [phone: 4215 8485], Mr J Sushil Jain, showed me the Winner brand door sill plates [4] for Fiat Linea and Punto comprising each 2 front and rear door sill plates, costing Rs 950 per set. He claimed he had other accessories for Linea like window visors [Rs 950 per set of 4], boot mat [Rs 350], etc., but I didn't see them. Fixing was easy. Just peeled off the top layer of the sticker and pressed it. Presto! It's done.

      On 18 June 2010, we left Vadapalani at 8 pm. The drive from Vadapalani to Porur was a torture. We had a leisurely dinner at Arusuvai, Sunkuvarchatram bypass, located at 52 km from Chennai. The food was good and toilet clean with plenty of space for car-parking. I had another break at BP COCO retail outlet, Chinnar near Krishnagiri toll plaza, wherein my Fiat Linea had fuel top up and we had coffee at Adyar Ananda Bhavan [BP Ghar Dhaba]. We reached our home, sweet home at Basaveshwara Nagar, Bangalore at 2 am today [19 June 2010].

      Nice report, Ravi!

      A note on your route though - it is easier to get to NH4 from Vadapalani through Maduravoyal. Porur is an option only for those living in South Madras.

      Thanks, hrag. During the Chennai visit in April 2010, I came to Maduravoyal from Ambattur on Chennai bypass. But, on that day, while going from Vadapalani, somehow, I missed it.

      My son brought the goodies from serial number 1 to 5 from the USA.

      I bought Jopasu car duster during my visit to Pune on 5/6 March 2010. I find the Indian Jopasu car duster is as good as its American counterpart California car duster.

      All these car-detailing accessories keep my Fiat Linea clean and shining.
