Go ahead and discus it, I was was just expressing my, erm, joy
I am sorry you mistook my words.

I said people generally bad mouth the fiat ASS.
I did not mean you did. As a rule, i evaluate all the cars against my needs and go for it. Palio was a natural choice and I knew it did not require extensive maintenance. But on the way, i realized people do not marry beautiful smart Women just because the mother in law was bad; Not a good analogy but in the Fiat context, i hope you understand

Not a bad idea, Considering the fact that ferari is made by Fiat group of Companies.

Ok..yet another FIAT thread. With all due respect, i am just waiting for the part where people start boasting about what their Fiats can do and how they are better than the competition.

Maybe not, but generally speaking its the Fiat owners who get excited the quickest (please don't take this in the wrong way). And also how many threads are there concerning other manufacturers as compared to Fiat?

I like Fiat for the cars it makes but as some have put it here, discussing just an ad in the paper is getting a little extreme !
get you site up and running and then we will apreciate. Ads by dealers is no big deal. I think even San/Chinkara are better they have their sites atleast

I agree that FIAT site is not up..but what about a maruti site where they do not compare Wagon R with Palio or Indica..probably they are a bit afraid

Hence its anyday better...not to have such a site which mislead people!
