    A Big Hello to all Veterans here!

    I am from Indore. Booked a T-Jet dynamic (pre-facelift) minimal grey color last week (28th March 2014) and it's Jan 14 manufacturing date. Cost on road ~8.74 lakhs and includes 2 years extended warranty, Fiat branded reverse parking sensors & mudflaps, Linea branded foot-mats (dealer didn't agree on T-Jet branded foot-mats) as freebies. Pre-sales negotiations, TD etc went through fine though I couldn't manage to get the cover also as freebies. It was love at first sight the moment I was behind the wheels.

    Skoda Rapid and T-Jet were in the running but finally settled with T-Jet as Skoda guys blocked me for asking a simple pre-sales query on their FB page. Moreover, the dealer did not have a petrol TD and came with a diesel vehicle for TD. I wasn't happy with the same as the clutch had peculiar shuddering (vibrations) when one pressed it a bit and the SA said it is to make sure that people don't do half clutch driving -- I wasn't convinced! Moreover, Skoda didn't pamper me much for my money and they in fact had me blocked on their FB page. Similar queries to Fiat on their FB page were handled professionally.

    Thanks for reading :)

    Well done Skoda guys..:thumbs down and thanks to their customer lounge and thanks to FB. :drinks A customer was finally saved due to their snobbish and might I say arrogant demeanor.

    Thanks! Yup pretty excited, like a kid :)

    Thanks!. Expected this week as per the dealer. It has to come from Fiat Stockyard.

    Sure will do. Yes Skoda did put me off. I got calls from Area Manager as part of damage control attempt but he still couldn't offer any explanation as to why I was banned from their FB page. In fact, Online TD booking, RFQ etc all went unattended. Most surprising was the fact that their online TD booking is a third-party plugin (carwale). Pathetic to say the least.

    Thanks! Yes, I found Skoda's behavior as insulting to say the least. It was as if they wee doing some favor by selling the car to me. Sure would post pics once I get possession of the car but I am not good at clicking so would try to come up with best possible pics.

    Thanks!. Yes owning a Fiat is special indeed as Fiat was the first brand (before Premier Padmini made its appearance) way back as a kid in the decade of 70's. It was a 1963 model (closer to Premier Padmini looks) IIRC and stayed with us till 1991. I self leaned driving back then as a school going kid. If I had to repeat the feat again in today's traffic it would be next to impossible.

    Pl ignore the typos (if any). I am still learning to be on a forum :)

    Congratulations,, 8.74 is a nice deal...

    I did take a Petrol Rapid (Auto) TD. It was less inspiring. Good that you chose the Jet.

    10th day and still waiting for the vehicle to arrive from Pune.

    Question wrt PDI for veterans:

    Dealer mentioned that once the trailer is in, he will call us so that vehicle is unloaded in front of us. Is this necessarily a part of PDI?
    Ford Figo (bought in December) PDI we did in showroom (and not even yard). So do we really have to go for unloading?

    Thanks in advance.

    Not required.
    But good to hear that dealer is pro-active.

    If VIN is fine (newly manufactured car), basic PDI should be sufficient.
