Welcome to Linea Club.
I am unable to welcome you in Fiat as u are already member of FIAT club by means of Palio so The Linea Club .

One small question did you get your armrest covered by same fabric as seat covers.
If not please get it done as there are high chances that you may not get the exact fabric of seat cover in later on stages.
PS,I am not able to observe the armrest in pic as it is tilted back

Linea that too in BLCAK looks extremely fabulous with all accessories.
Happy motoring [drive]

Congrats on the car and sorry for the unfortunate incident. Hopefully it should not be a problem as many people have replaced damaged windscreens without any problem.

This is sheer negligence on part of Fiat.
How is Fiat responsible. This is the dealers fault.

The unfortunate incident is past and buried.I had checked the workmanship and seems flawless.I wanted this to end peacefully,not to carry the pain of staff and quote the moment of new car purchase with joy & happiness..so far i am impressed with car..more n more..
I was little worried about driving in city due length and size of car.But let me tell u it is not as difficult as i assumed..Only i am a bit extra cautious about NEW CAR.

Reverse camera:
I had to install reverse camera through fiat to ensure continued warranty.Monitor i purchased in third market.I had problem here..Camera installed and wired with RCA connector.But monitor needs 2.5mm 4 pin jack.Believe I tried in almost every shop in richie street in Chennai..really struggled to find atlas in one shop where i found the 2.5mm pin alone..Then with multimeter. and bit of soldering I fabricated the adapter cable..Now my camera & display a perfect match..The gps in the monitor is also too good..But the version is a year old..trying. to switch to latest..
Will post a few pic of camera & monitor ,gps soon..

Congrats Autopilot your car is looking awesome , waiting to see the picture of the illuminated door sill plate.


Your seat cover fitting seems to be a bit loose , could have been fitted better.

That is a really unfortunate news. Nature's way of destruction. I am hoping that most of the damages are covered under insurance.

Regarding tests, you should check for all PDI related inspection. As the damage is quite a lot, you should also test ride the vehicle before taking the delivery.

PS - It seems you have written the post in a hurry, it was difficult to make out what you are saying at some places.
