Thanks a lot for dropping me back at the starting point... I have uploaded the a dozen photos of the meet....

Starting from the Toll Plaza, parking the cars for a photo session near Muttukadu and then at Thiruvidandhai to till we had a discussion with RDC Motors in sequence... Except a few like me, rest of the team went upto Mamallapuram(due to prior commitment it was possible for me )
Hope to see u all in the next meet....

From what I heard, the Chairman and MD of RDC, Mr. Chandrasekar is a down to earth person. Highlights from his speech.

- Service center would be ready by 1st or 2nd week of Feb
- They have already stocked hell lot of spares of Punto and Linea
- They are also working to source parts for Palio and Petra.
- They may soon move to different facility for service. The proposed facility has only 10 bays (according to Fiat spec) which they think may not be sufficient enough after seeing the kind of inquiries they are receiving.

Man, that was a good line up of FIATs. Nice to see several generations of Fiat cars in there.

Great sight of all generation of Italian babes together. Something very unique about Fiat and its owners who often organize these meets. Kudos!

That's great news, previously in Concorde, they mentioned that they never stocked parts since FIAT never provided credit, any idea if this situations changed now ?

Fiat has now changed the way the parts are distributed. The distribution will be managed by the entity called MOPAR. We will get to know more on this in the days to come.
