I would agree. Thanks muneemmk for all your efforts. Please do share information as much as you can within the allowed limit and policy of the company and we would all enjoy that. Moreover, if Nov 23 is to be true, we can very well wait till that.

Sorry, I didn't mean to advise you.

Ah! Forgot to ask. Where is SidIndica, the scoop master?

Ok Sid tell us what you got. Suttle hints are getting us at the edge of our chairs!!

Lets say we start with the prices of Linea, features and then move onto Bravo, Punto and so on

Since i miss the logic as Fiat who owns the engine going to Suzuki for the procurement!

No offences pal!
Owning the design means zilch, if your factory is not equipped to produce those power-trains!
Why do you think Fiat (India) took so long to plonk the MJD into their Palio?

yes, both the punto and bravo are belgian market brochures. No point opening them and posting more photos since these are available in many Fiat sites as a pdf. I did collect a huge amount of brochures from Belgum and was just reading them for my pastime.

the linea launch is even puzzling me and may be I am not able to get any inside scoop.

some time back I did have a talk to the Fiat guy and made a thread but since his points were also not accurate, we cannot draw any conclusion.
only can we say-is this industry's worst kept secret with saving the best for the last?

I think the Italian intelligence agency is handling the Linea launch thats why we are not able to get any concrete information on it's launch.

I wonder if Fiat knows the meaning of the month of December. From what I know, November 23 is not December!
