welcome aboard. I am also an owner of Palio D. It is 5 months old. Believe me, you are never going to regret for chosing this car. My car color is Formula red. What is yours?

BTW, what is the waiting period after you book your car. In Hyderabad, I got it on the day my financing back did the security check.Actually, the loan agent called me up to say my loan is not approved after the delivery.

s_a...how in the world did you manage to get the palio d in formula red. it is no more available in that colour, nor in the purple passion - my 2 favourite colours!

i had to book the car in hazel grey. i have booked it now 10 days ago - they say 10 more days. will keep you posted on the details.

okay guys,

my loudspeaker r&d profile!!! this blog has generated more interest in half a day than i could get from a lifetime of meeting people - this profession is a social-life killer, esp among the ladies

anyways, i am an engr who with an equally mad partner took it upon ourselves to understand and research ear fatigue in loudspeaker listening - the rest hopefully will be history...for now, it goes by the name of lithos acoustics - a quaint and eccentric r&d company manufacturing and designing a limited set of high end speaker systems for home audio and home theatre. do check us out at www.lithosindia.com if this interests you.

don't want to sound like i'm doing any advt!

still to do - post those ferrari pics - never good at doing these complex posts!

Cream, Check out the FAQ section. Its got details on how to post pictures via the imageshack servers. And fast!! It will be great to see a fellow Team-BHPian taming the prancing horse.

We have got to talk about Lithos Acoustics. It will be fascinating to hear about the challenge behind marketing such specialised services.

After delivery? Sweet. Tell the financiers to take a hike, you already got your car. Wish Bombay would work like this

here goes, hope these pics come thru...

http://img136.exs.cx/img136/8422/f55017dr.jpg

that's me in the 550 - okay okay, so i didn't get to drive it! my wife was obviously more interested in taking my photo than getting all of the car - hence the front was cut off!

http://img100.exs.cx/img100/7442/f5503vd.jpg

up here is another upfront look!

http://img100.exs.cx/img100/5230/maser5kg.jpg

c the silver maserati in the background up above - almost got to drive it - but lucked out at the last minute, when some family commitments came in the way.

that's the autobox -triptronic spider - alfa romeo (top). somehow, we both (me and wifey) loved this car - maybe the fiat lineage got to us!

I got the Formula red off the shelf. And I see a few more cars in Hyd with the same color. Also I have an yellow Palio D. My choice was black, but you know folks at home they say black represent bad omens.
