    A big hello all Team Fiat members. I finally took the plunge and joined the forum, but have lurking for quite a while now.

    In short, I'm a Fiat fan. (Though earlier, it was a love-hate relationship)

    Moved up to a Tuscan Wine Punto 90 EP in December 2010. (From a Baleno) Rather satisfied with it, barring an incident where the intercooler pipe came off within the first 1,000 km. After the Baleno, this car does feel like a big jump. Though the Suzi has a lot better acceleration and reliability, the Punto's remarkable road-holding capabilities and diesel in-gear acceleration have seduced me. It's not perfect, but of all the cars I could afford, the Punto fit the bill perfectly. (A Punto/Linea 1.6 MJD would be almost-nirvana)


    We also have an Adventure 1.6 in the family. That car's sheer presence and near-rally-car abilities in the dirt can put a smile on your face any time of the day.... (The electrical are however, not the most reliable)

    I've always wondered what drives people like us to buy 'unconventional' (in terms of the Indian market's perception) cars such as Fiats. Simple, a passion - nay, a lust - for life. When we say, 'Damn it, I will not let life grind me down into submission and make me just another grey person who's forgotten what it means to be in love'. Our Fiats may be temperamental, but hey, we have to make allowances for Italian supermodels.


    So, happy motoring folks!


    Mods so far? Just an ICE upgrade: Rainbow components front and rear (door inserts) and a Blaupunkt THA 475 4 channel amp. Perhaps a small sealed subwoofer after a few months...

    Pics? - sorry, haven't taken any nice ones so far, but a road trip might be coming up soon. There'll be plenty then...

    welcome on-board emsworth,awesome write up........

    ofcourse welcome to abnormal group...............'unconventional' (in terms of the Indian market's perception)

    actually we are normal people.......down to earth.....simple love in heart..........we use mind as foot wear........using as and when required

    monthly sales of fiat shows only that much people left with love..............others were bullish and bearish.........

    we enjoy the drive.......we were total like a child.............living that moment

    so called conventional people..........they were physically behind the wheel......mentally absent.......sensex in the mind......they are split schizophrenic.....

    Welcome to Fiat family Emsworth. What draws people to Fiat? Rather, what kind of people are drawn to Fiat? Its the kind of people who are not bothered about market perceptions and herd mentality but believe in shaping their own destiny. They do not believe in what others say but say what they believe in.

    Hi Emsworth

    Welcome to the forum and you gave a entry with a sixer. A short and sweet writeup, reflecting your love towards FIAT. Enjoyed reading every sentence.

    Wish you happy miles ahead.

    I have upgraded from Palio to TJet, and it is a fantastic product. FIAT should have released it as Linea Sports !
    Driving Jet at 150+ is a thrilling experience with no rise in the pulse.

    Take care and good luck
    Vasu
  8. Hi Emsworth, welcome to TFI and congrats on your Punto.
