Small repairs are ok at a garage (in fact, they work out much cheaper too).....good that you are getting major work done at a Fiat S.S.

Yeah, we sure should meet up. Why don't you take the initiative to fix it up? Somewhere in Bandra or otherwise (centrally)

Hi Karizma_devil,

Congrats for owning the Italian Beauty, can you tell us where you got the treatment done in Navi Mumbai / Thane ?

I am in Navi Mumbai & wanted to get the treatment done for my car also. Rs. 1500/- seems to be a decent amount for the work which you have mentioned, request you to post some pictures before & after in case if you have those with you, it would be beneficial for all of us

regards,
Sanjeev

Thanks Sanjeev.
Well I am not too familiar with Navi-Mumbai, but i did my car at Car Shine Thane Ghodbunder Road Patlipada. Since i live at Hiranandani Estate Thane , its just 5 mins from my place. They really did a good job !
These are some pre-treatment pics picked from Amits thread http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/long-t...000-kms-3.html (Fiat Palio S10. Now updated to 72,000 kms!) as i took the car as in these pics from Amit . I would soon [post from post treatment pics.

Well the Battery has been replaced atlast !

Got Tata Green , 25 months replacement + 25 months pro-rata depreciation.

Tried calling Amaron many time but there was no answer from their toll free numbers .

Got the Tata Gren delivered and installed at home, within 4 hours of calling their help line number.

Between Tata - Fiat A.S.S Balaji thane quoted Rs.5800 for the same Tata Green battery, when I told them that on Tata Greens website Din 44 Titanium series for Palio Petrol shows Rs.5485, the service centre guy told me " No sir battey am offering is 55 Apms and !!!! To my utter surprise when I cross checked with Tata Green dealer he said it didnt come in 55 Amps , it came as 60 Amps !!

I called help-line number from fiat India website to register a complain against Balaji, they heard my story and told they would take action and call me up in 24 hours .
Did the same with Tata Green , and response was dito !
Ultimately I got the battery for rs.4400 !!

What kind of crooks are these balaji guys !!

The only things you need to change now are the headlights and the cars look would just change to awesome.

Dont worry about the F.E. The 1.6 has this tendency to give very low F.E with a new driver on board. Its improve as the car gets used to you . On my car too the F.E drops drastically whenever someone else drives.
