So basically my decision was based on tread wear indicator and operating temp. ratings.

I got it from Garyson (this was my second car from them after vista)and as stated earlier my experience there was nothing short of being on the red carpet but due to a large crowd of ppl coming in the staff got distracted, everyone was doing too many things at the same time and that did rob us of the better part of the day and family time with the car in the evening did get curtailed. I did get all the admiration of Sarabha Nagar crowd though and model town jalandhar can wait..it was priceless.

Now the dealership and thier performance i would rate it top of the line,the dealership is owned by an ex-army officer and is run by his son who takes personal interest in the biz. the deliveries were fast on both occasions and he did follow up with me on both occasions. In comparison to them cargo motors jalandhar did not give me options, they had one color in Vista and Same thing this time and approach was like take it or leave it ... Dada motors were keen to give services like td and answer questions but not keen to sell outside Ldh... and since i wanted my cars delivered like same day i tried all dealers with in one day range from Jal. to Delhi ... some did not pick up thier phones at all some would say i can come and see the car but it is availble on booking etc. and both times Garyson stepped to the plate and delivered Vista (same day) and this car with in a week.( i think now the wait list for this color is for 7 weeks and red is same day).
Since this car was launched on 14 and on 17 in the region and taking a cue from TBHP forums i had requested all the dealers with in range for a sneak peak of the car in the yards before it was on display in showroom and i did get previews at the said 3 dealerships and this was the time i got a commitment of delivery from Garyson, 17 being a saturday nobody wanted the car i had the first crack at the car on 18 but since that being a sunday and i wanting to change the rubber on the car, i passed and monday i was there at the said time to take the baby home .. i was told this was the 3rd car sold by dealership two were sold on sunday but were not the fully loaded ones and i guess this is first fully loaded and a first for Jalandhar too as the dealer did call me for the red one still being avaiable.

Last but not the least, yes Dealer networks are treating Fiat customers with kid gloves and i did feel the difference in lvl of service when buying a fiat as compared to tata.

hehe! its not that difficult to gain maximum mileage from tyres here. People rarely let it rip and corners are usually taken at a snail's pace since pedestrians are given priority here and you never know how many grandmas with kids and dogs will be around the corner.

Vancity - congrats again - guess you are overwhelmed with messages here. After all, it was "admiration guaranteed"

Upload them pics when you find some free time, and yes hopefully you are keeping your revving instincts under check until run-in.
