Btw what's that starter like thingy on the right of the dash ? The starter looks like it's below the steering, correct ?
The starter is still in the engine bay I think you are talking about the ignition key switch. These cars used to come with steering lock type switches which many a times malfunctioned. Hence it is very common to see the "old type" ignition switch on the dashboard .

Right! Since the steering lock switch isnt working properly, the previous owner has fit an additional old type Ignition switch. Same is the case in my S1 too.

@ Adheesh: Why do the steering lock switch malfunction so badly? I somehow want that back to work in my S1. Is it a good idea ? Any work around to make it more reliable?

Personally I hadn't had any bad experience from these steering lock type ignition switches. However have seen 'n' number of cars with the downgraded feature. You would just need to find a steering lock type ignition switch from Jay company either new or from a car which is being broken down. Original locks were also from Jay and the key had 'PAL' embossed on one side and PAL & JAY embosssed on the other. The aftermaket locks from JAY had JAY on both side.

Default Fiat!!!!!!

Our Club's Founder Member Karthik M B (Karthik1100) had been to Coorg to celebrate New Year in his FIAT!!.

I am posting on behalf of him as he is busy his film shooting schedules.

He went to Coorg along with his friends and his Movie Director to shoot a small feature film on his FIAT!!!

The Title of the movie is FIAT - Friends In A Trip.
He drove the car on all sorts of terrains without any problem. Hats off to you Karthik M B!! You proved a lot. Good luck for all your future projects.

Must say, Karthik M B is the bravest driver of our club. First Goa and now this place. I fear for even 100KM in my FIAT. Hats off to MB
Nice photography, but the funny part is that the Cakes reads "HAPPY NEW YEAR 2009"

Good show Karthik !
It's been a dream to take my 1100 for a 300 - 500 km drive. My only worry is that I'm mechanically inept.. Still, would LOVE to have a long Fiatful drive someday..
