Default Got my new car

I don't know if this is the right forum, but anyway.

I have my new car - Petra EL (petrol). Hazel Grey. Just drove it from Goregaon to Lower Parel (where my office is). Car is wonderful, though I have not yet 'ripped' it.

Anuroop has been fantastic, especially Mr Sunil who was very helpful and stuck to his deadlines. My thanks are also due to Cream aka Rajiv who put me onto the dealer and cleared any doubts that I had.

I will be retaining my M800 for in city traffic and plan to go on a long drive this weekend. Will be off Kolkata tomm. :( Be back on Saturday evening. Will post more details when I drive it enough. Till then I will try to temper my excitement. Work beckons now. See you later.

Thumbs up

typeO-ve

good going dude !!!! have a blast with your new car.

but most importantly, please put in a good review covering all angles once you get it out on a long drive.

of course a more comprehensive review is possible only after you have clocked significant mileage, but i am sure most members here, who are vacillating between the going the FIAT way and any other, myself included are very eager for your initial comments on the car.

Mr.Sunil at Anuroop as you said is a good chap. He is polite, has required information....and he was spot on with his response and service when i requested him for a test drive of the Palio D.

meanwhile ENJOY your new set of wheels man !!!!
