    Hi friends,
    I'm Pasupathy, a physics graduate. After working for over 21 years with Govt., presently into practice as a professional Indirect taxes advisor.

    I'm greatly fascinated by new-gen automobiles, Fiats in particular. Yes I now own a pre-owned Fiat grande Punto 1.3 mjd 90hp, after owning a couple of Maruti WagonRs earlier.

    Every fiat enthusiast has a unique liking to Fiats but mine is purely based on the safety Fiats offer. I had known and seen at least two terrible accidents involving fiat vehicles with the occupants came out alive and on their feet, with only some superficial bruises. Yes. You guessed it right. On both the occasions the cars were totaled.

    And my long wait for owning a fiat (since the fiat uno days) has come true only recently a couple of months back.

    And during the process of short listing the used cars I was looking, I gained immense knowledge from various online forums, including team fiat. I wish to share whatever I learnt with other members wherever possible.

    Thanks for enrolling me as a member of this wonderful forum without any hassles.

    Welcome Pasupathi. Enjoy your time here.
    Physics and Taxes... anyway both need mathematics!

    Thanks @limraj. Many in this country could not pursue a career of their choice, rather a career in relation to what they study. And the same is true in my case too. Now, tax laws are my bread-winner and physics is my passion. No regrets though!

    Mathematics!? I seldom use mathematics in my profession. It is more of tax laws - their interpretation and application to a given circumstance(s).

    Warm welcome V.K. Pasupathy ji,
    As you have already mentioned about the Safety of FIAT cars when you saw the accident, we would also like to know the safety from other aspects from drive train point of view, stability at high speeds,steering feedback, cornering,marathon runs(with out any hussles) in short your driving experience on 90Hp. 90Hp is always fun to drive,than 75Hp. Enjoy your stay.
