That is awesome.

Can you give a break up? The only regret I have with my purchase of the Petra is that I did not wait long enough. Otherwise it would have been the new version of the Petra or the Adventure - with preference for the latter. :(

5.3 is a great price. I paid 5.3 for Palio D in 2004.

Hey Gemi, congrats. You would be dismissing the rough patches without a care in the world. Must happen very often when in driving in Kerala. BTW, you get so hooked up to the ride that you tend to overdo it, go a little soft on that in teh beginning, willya?

sure deturminus. i'm now learning to have a controlled driving. With last trip with my UNO 1.2 on highway i could extract nearly 16 km/l whereas i used to get around 12-13 earlier. So i'm learning. I now realize that the fiat engine gives you what you ask for. If you floor the pedal and ask for power it gives you that otherwise ask for mileage and your wish will be granted!!!!
