No beige? Not even in Emotion trim? That's sounds GOOD!

You said the blue metallic is the best colour. Is it like the New Orleans blue?
the colour is called electric blue metallic and looked quite different from the new orleans blue!probably closer to the azure shade!

i will update regarding the service schedules and after sales strategy as soon as the training gets over so we can have pure clarity!

Sid:
Can you please update us on:
1. Is the car getting launched on June 3? (only a couple of weeks away) - Or is it June 17th
2. Are a wide range of colors available? (or, are the ones available same as linea?)
3. Are the tires same as Linea? (is the 17'' upgrade available )

God bless you for the information :-)

What about Indica Vista in terms of Oil change, as both will have the same engine.

This was what I found regarding AC compressor for Indicas and Indigos:

Yahoo! Groups

of course, this was way before the Vista's time!

This is going OT here.

Sorry.

Sid has already confirmed the launch date as June 17th. You should be able to find it in this thread a few pages before.

Yup!
I have seen that.But I guess i was put off-track by the mail from the CEO who himself mentioned something about 3 weeks!!

Personally, I would love to see the car on 4th of June(specially since I have got my finances arranged ).

The same CEO mentioned that the GP would be launched in Q3 of this year a few weeks back. I think GP launch has been brought forward because Linea sales seem to be tapering off and Fiat is probably getting a bit desparate. I say this because off late Linea print and TV advts seem to be all over the place.

But in a way I'm still disappointed not to see a teaser of GP Ad on TV or Print media!

Atleast let the millions of people know we are getting a new FIAT on the roads!

I agree, if launch is in a month atleast make a website or some teaser etc.

Choosing Bangalore for the launch seems interesting.

30k km for oil change, that too in Indian conditions? What kind of filter does GP have? Is it any different from the combo of Swift/Vista/Palio?
