While reading through one FIAT forum, I stumbled upon an epic prank played on VW by FIAT. As it made an interesting read for me, I'm sharing it.

Well played, Fiat. By paying attention to when Google's fleet of camera cars were snooping around Södertälje, where Volkswagen's Swedish operations are headquartered, Fiat zinged their rival good.

Was it really planned ? Looks like just a coincidence to me...but yeah VW would really be willing to remove it asap.

Well played FIAT! Would be interesting to see what VW's take on that is. Damn! I wish FIAT was this aggressive in marketing against other companies in India.
