As far as I know, it was not publicized at all. The email sent to dealers confirms the same. The offer was more or less only for Fiat and Tata employees, select dealerships and Fiat loyalists. If advertised, the bookings may have soared and set some sort of a record. 750 might have been like 10000, who knows?

I wish Fiat makes these 750 cars somewhat speacial by making it a limited edition badge and adding some freebie features. IT would be memorable for everyone, including Fiat.

After I booked one, three of my Colleagues too have booked!
Hi, But i checked the web site and for Bangalore this is the price. There is a huge diff. Can you pls confirm again its 4.49 for SDX ? Also were you offered any discount which brought the cost down?

Its a wonderful opportunity for FIAT lovers. 2.99L Ex showroom for SLX is a must grab as a first car. It really makes sense for people who are looking for a used diesel hatch to buy a brand new SDX. So 750 more Palios will hit Indian road by October 2010, thats sweet .

Dealer's initial price was 4.65lac on road. After a small discount, it came up to 4.49lac on road. The website price is definitely not updated. It could mislead many

Exactly. For any first time buyer, the SLX would be perfect. Those who have smaller cars or looking for budget diesel cars could go in for the SDX.

I too am keenly looking forward for the 750 Palios that would hit the streets some time end of September or October.

If Fiats continue to produce Palios at this pricing (ex of 3.89 lac), it would turn into a top seller and induce a hell of a compitition with other manufactueres. Fiats would be very well benefited. The winner would be the customer at the end of the day.

I will not suggest to go for SLX. As far as I rembmer 1.1 engine components are imported from Brazil, and they are costly.

1.3 Multijet or 1.6 is good option to opt for this opprtunitiy.

Your post seems so funny No offense mate. Taking into consideration for a new car in warranty + extended warranty which means 36 Months, how would one know what would be the status of the Spares and Services after 3 years?? Especially when the Palio Stile would be classic till that time.

If spares availability and service scenario is the top most and only criteria for your buy, please do not but a FIAT car. You would be better off with a Maruti or Hyundai car. Except if you are a FIAT fanboy to which this discounted offer is catering to!

Cheers~

What irony ! I thought this email should not be shared on an online forum. It goes against the spirit of the below statement, no?

I made the booking today. The service at the dealership was quick & efficient.

The interaction with Divisional Manager for FIAT at Prerana, Mr.Yogesh and the sales person Mr.Suresh were very cordial.

Estimated Delivery is 60 days. Have already started counting them

Exclamation Urgent help needed.

Hi,

Even i want to book under this scheme by tomorrow.

But the catch is that i am currently employed in Hyderabad, and i want to book, purchase and keep the car in kolkata which is in my home state and near my home town. Now i ll have to complete the booking process via mails and calls with the dealership.

So far i have asked for a mail confirmation from them that they are going to allow me avail the current offer of discounted Ex showroom price(3.89 lacs) free insurance, free extended warranty and free RSA during the delivery 6-7 weeks later. They are going to send such confirmation tomorrow.

I plan to transfer the booking amount of 50K to the account of the dealer, after the mail confirmation. The have promised to send me a scanned copy of the money receipt, via mail, soon after. And also i will get a friend of mine to pick up the hard copy of the same later tomorrow.

Is this plan good enough? Or should i send the money via my friend and get the payment done upfront? This is my first car booking and i do not know what documentation to expect. Is the money receipt the only thing that i should get or shall i get some agreement on a stamp paper stating my choice of the car stating reversal of booking amount if the promises are not kept by the dealer. Should the mail from the dealer confirming that the offer will be provided at delivery time be enough or should i get a hard copy of that letter at least? Please advise !

Sorry if the questions are silly. But I am in a dilemma since I am compelled to rush and hurry, and that too from a long distance, for the purchase of my first car.
