The alloys are giving me ideas as well and i agree the punto console has to be one of the coolest things they have done.

Yeah i think everyone knows about the elephant in the room, and there can be countless discussions on why they are doing this when they are not doing anything on the sales front and i would agree with you on that statement as well , but with this one i think i would let it be for it is - which is that it's a nice concept and executed well.

Well i believe they do, but again i dont believe there is a need to link this to Fiat "supporting" drinking , its a lounge and that's that. Other brands do it as well

"Part of Burns Hyundai's premium experience includes invitations to complimentary wine tastings, strolling dinners or open-bar events at a nearby fine-dining restaurant with which the dealership has a partnership deal."

It's like establishing a link which says because Emirates serves drinks on board they encourage their pilots to drink and fly.

Good one Jeeva! I guess someone understood it wrong that Fiat wants to increase its customer base but forgot the car part On a serious note, I do hope this helps in creating a buzz and maybe some of these bar-customers decide to buy a Fiat car evenutally.

Been to this place at Domlur twice so far.
- It's not packed and one can actually make conversation even when the rock music is blaring behind you.
- Reasonably priced compared to the extravagant prices not too far from here (northwards).
- It's not dark. It's quite beautiful inside, actually.

Visited this place this morning, while returning from our weekend ride. Decided to check this place out after going through this thread.

Very fine interiors. The bar has some amusing stickers/boards all around. One wall has vehicle number plates from literally every country.

Ordered Lemonade which was probably the best lemonade I've had till date. Very well balanced and in good quantity. Must try for anyone visiting this place.
Also tried out the Chicken Popcorn. OWNS the ones available in these fast food joints for sure.

Very well behaved and courteous staff, and beautiful ambience. No crowd, just a family and us. Must visit!

This is good and makes sense to drive some footfalls, and i like the fact that they are offering this 15% to existing owners as relationship gesture.I wish they would open , again , something similar in Delhi.

They are also organizing events it seems , for example like this comedy night. More details https://www.facebook.com/events/1563543183923074/

Offering globally inspired food, the place has vintage lounge sofas and has used various parts of a car to enhance the beauty of its interiors.

Given how fiat is doing , maybe they should try out the restaurant business
Atleast if they serve good food and as we can see, the rates are reasonable, some people will come to the place just for food and might get interested in the history and legacy associated with the brand. Not everything is driven by sales numbers.

However, although this cafe looks cool, but the exposed hinges on the Punto DJ Desk is totally non-Italian. The hinge needed to go inside someway, probably something could be fabricated inspired by boot (dicky) hinges.

The second thing is the Pin-stand at the bottom of the Red Punto cut-away. I understand that they needed someting to support the half car structure, but a pin-stand kills it. Could have made the body sit on unexposed Cantelever brackets.
