What needs to be seen is how much of the Etios Concept gets moulded to the production version. Having seen the A-star from concept to reality, it was nowhere identical.

As per the information floating around the concept displayed is 90% close to what will be put into production. Although they may not opt for the white red combo for the seats, almost evrything else that we see now will more or less make it into the production model. Just hope they get rid of that ugly chrome strip at the back. In addition to being ugly, it could blind the driver following you at night, due to it reflecting the light from the headlamp of the vehicle following it.

Heard that FIAT is going to annonce its launches tomorrow at 10:30. So this might be rumour!

with Polo CUP planned with 105/130 BHP, FIAT should have plonked T-JET in Punto. Any idea about loads of extra features? like all wheel disk, side airbags?

No rumour dude. A fellow member here called me to give this inside scoop. There is a 90ps VGT MJD Punto (so called Sports version) with black/red leather interior trim, sun-roof and 17'' alloys. And the big one! A T-jet Linea in a smashing new purple colour (totally drool maal). I wish I could fly!

Hi.

If i were to reach the autoexpo gates at 10 am on 7th morning,

a) How much will i have to pay for business pass?
b) Can anybody pay up the money and visit during business hours or is it a privilege for only the owners of businesses?

Thanks.

Business pass costs rs500 and i think you are supposed to fill up a form and attach your business card for visit during business hours.

Now this is testing my patience being a Ford lover... Is Ford having a stall in this Expo or not. I have made a determination if Ford gives a pass to such a big event and not showcase its Figo, then I am going to give a pass to its hatch too.

Belive me if its not here, its going nowhere.

Guys in the Expo do you see any Ford stalls out there??
