  1. Dear Brothers and sisters in Fiat,

    Got 2 fiat heads at my work place and this prompted me to join this forum,now about me..born and brought up in Dubai,therefore reared among the V8's and the Sports coupes of the 80's(dads Chevrolet Malibu Classic and Moms Honda prelude 2 door sports edition and a couple of the occasional rental classics which dad bought over on weekends.Vacations in India were spent in the Ambys,Marutis,Premier Padmini (there were 2 in the family and a Panda 4X4 which was later scrapped due to non availability of spares)and the Auto rickshaws.But it was the Premier Padus that gave me the kicks with its charecteristic throaty growl.I still remember the way the buck when you blip the throttle.

    Fast forward 15 years,we had a Gypsy,which we sold and got a brand new Fiat Uno Diesel.For the time it had the biggest engine plonked in.1.9 litres of pure diesel combustion!Phew!Fast forward 2006,my first car,TADA..Fiat Uno Jubilee with a Lancia (yeah you read it right,Lancia) engine,not great in the performance side as this engine was not built to take on the load of an A.C.But yeah Pedigree it had.Handling of a rally car,electricals from Magneti Mareli (yes thats in a Ferrari too!)engine derived from the Lancia and comfort a league away from the Marutis.

    I love the Fiats,but thinking of the spares,service and collaboration with TATA.I would wait and watch before i take a leap into the Italian girls again!
