Default Chennai's FIAT maniac is new here !

Hi guys,

I am Gokul, just got the approval to join this forum.

My family and I have been with the FIATs for a long time. We started with a Premier padmini in 1988, then we bought a crumbling FIAT ELEGANT (1956) and restored it, Next came the FIAT PETRA D in 2004 and the latest one is the FIAT PALIO STILE 1.1. We are waiting for the FIAT LINEA D to be launched.

As for me, born 1974, did my Hotel Management from IHM Bangalore and happy to be out of the catering and hotel industry. I am a IT consultant in Chennai and enjoy biking and drives and partying.

Married with one daugher.

I hope to have some fun here and meet up with more auto enthusiasts .

Hey Gokul,
How is your experience with Stile 1.1? I am actually on look out for buying a new car and considering stile 1.1. Can you please tell me if ever you felt if underpowered as people are crying it to be? what are the FE figures?

I put up the photos of the Elegant 1100 asap....

The petra D is a 1900 CC lovable monster

Yo man, i am in PUG just like u and most of FIAT lovers

Stile 1.1 is a very good city car where you don't need the power of the 1.6. Its decent in pick-up and very good in engine refinement, interiors, Safety(most important) and build quality. The service is very good in Chennai with Concorde motors, but then its the way you get things done with any A.S.S. The FE is pretty good, i get around 13.5 kmpl in Chennai. I use Shell petrol. I did a long drive with the car (up and down- 1200 km) from Chennai to Thekkady(kerala) in december and came back to Chennai with no issues with the car and ME(no back problems which i am prone too)

And to every one else,

Thanks and Lets play.
