Default FIAT Funday@Hyderabad-Detailed report with Photos

FIAT Funday!! Proud to be a FIAT owner!!!

The event was organised by all dealers of Hyd (concorde/tejaswini/Autofin) with FIAT.
It started with a warm welcome at Tejaswini Motors, Hyd at 10:00am. They served good snacks and tea for family and provided driver to goto nearby petrol pump for fuel top up (by owner's expenses). They pasted rally stickers and asked to line up in fornt of showroom. All owner's had a nice meeting session by 11:30 with warm hospitality and tea n snacks. They sealed fuel lid of all cars and recorded initial reading. Also gave a complete route map with check points. Mr Puneet and team (Around 50 dedicated FIAT officials with white T-shirt and red cap with FIAT logo)flagged off the rally and almost around 55-60 Lineas/Puntos started towards "Dhola-re-dhani" a Rajasthan village.
At every check point FIAT team ( A punto with 2-3 FIAT officials with FIAT flag) was checking each car for sealing and marking on the sheet.
Drive was 36-37 kms from Madhapur. Last check point was petrol pump opposite Dhola re dhani where each car was again topped up with a reading of fuel. At this point the end speedometer was noted and we are asked to go to Rajasthan village which is just opposite.
Around 9-10 FIAT officials were waiting and welcoming every participant with a warm greetings. We handed over our forms there. The inside arrangement was absolutely 3-star. Good lounge, stage show, fun games for ladies, couples, childrens. There was a magic show . After almost 1.5 Hrs of fun, there was a lunch.

After lunch prizes were declared. Fortunately I got 2nd position in 1.4L Petrol Linea with A/c with a milege of 12.28 kmpl in city with full traffic. (actually I have started my Trip A at starting point, its reading says 6.9 l/100 km = 14.49 kmpl) It may be because at the petrol pump after rally, the person overflowed the tank and almost 200ml petrol was thrown out( He must be taking that 2.9L bill from officials)

It was absolutely FIAT Fun day. Well managed, organized, good hospitality, courteous infos, person to person interaction and sheer enjoy.
It was also shoot by NTv for quite some time. The best milege given was FIAT Punto 1.3 diesel with 28 kmpl.( The engine on which half of the India runs ( Indicas, Indigos, Manzas, Swifts and Swift Dzires)
Three cheers for FIAT!!!!! Hip Hip Hurray !!!!! keep it up!!!!!
Detailed Photosession followed.........

hmm. Great initiative by Fiat. I never got SMS (Maybe because my dealer Autofin shifted to Maruti now)
They need to keep these efforts to make the dealers really believe that they are not just TATA, they also belong to FIAT.

Good one ! I guess its easy for Fiat to manage the event since the volumes will be low comparatively! Nevertheless good initiative. Will make the Fiat fan quite happy. So where are the rest of the pics? Keep shooting!

Great going Fiat! They are really taking efforts to build a owner community. I read somewhere else about a recommendation prize of a GPS unit too. I hope this is extended to other cities too; would encourage people like me who are sitting on the fence to write Fiat on the cheque!

Good to know of this Fiat event, will they be organising in other cities?

And were owners of older models like Palio invited for this event?
