Default Pics and Meet review

Members at the meet:
Team-BHP Members Satish_appasani, Solly (Solomon), Airfoil(Naveen), Naveen’s friend Ram, cooldude1988765 (Karan)
PUG Members BSR, Santa ram, Srinivas, Siva
Rides
Siena 1.2
Adventure 1.6
Palio GTX - 2 cars
Palio D
Palio 1.2
1 lone Wagon R (or call it one and only)

This was the best meet we had in Hyderabad and the first meet with more than 3 members. It was a great meet where people shared all their passion for Fiat and their grumble with each other. We met at KBR park and then moved to Barista cafe in Jubilee hills. It was a great sight seeing so many Fiat going in a convoy. When the cars were pulling in to Barista parking, the security guards were standstill for few mins.


From Left to right: BSR from PUG with his Palio 1.2 Sport, Solly with GTX, Satish with Siena 1.2, Siva from PUG with Palio D, Srinivas from PUG with Adventure, Naveen (Airfoil) with GTX, cooldude with Wagon R

The panorama pictures look nice. Looks like a good meet. Do you fiat owners have some inside info on Fiat's present and future plans? I read on PUG that after the small car excise norms, Fiat is working on reducing the length of the Grande Punto so it falls in the newer excise bracket. Is that confirmed?

What did Fiat do now?

Amit: We don't have any inside information from Fiat about their plans. I don't think that the size of the car matters for small car excise norm. It's the engine size. < 1200 CC petrol and < 1500 CC in Diesel fall in to small car category. Correct me if i am wrong.
