Crazy FIAT driving habits

  1. Hi Folks,

    Wanted to post this thread for quite some time. Ever since i become FIATian on 22 March 2012. I get into these weird driving habits, just want to know, people here share such habits like me.

    1) Forming a convoy when FIAT cars goes in front. I have done this so many times. Since i reside in IT Corridor, if i see any FIAT last in the queue i will tail along no matter how long is the queue in the toll gate. Have been around 4th car max in a fiat convoy. Those FIAT drivers i should compliment with whom i have tailed along , they understand it and have mostly tried to maintain convoy by not breaking the line,

    Yesterday i tailed along from Adayar Signal to Mandaiveli Signal with two lineas First one is TW, followed by OB and last was mine MG, it was a perfect harmony we stayed in a line as much as we could. Incidentally i was tailing behind a TW and then a OB came so fast from behind, i was expecting him to speed past us seeing us he joined in the middle. It was such a nice feeling , you should see the reaction of the other drivers , they drool at our beauties in line. Looks like a ramp walk :) The stupid part was i left my mobile in my bag and kept it in behind else would have clicked few pics.

    2) Looking at the side profile of my Linea if had to drive in area or shops which has glass doors so that my beauty in motion gets reflected. I love that sight.

    3) Dipping headlamps as i see a fellow Linea or Punto, i do this quite often and two Lineas in my area had started responding to this one is MH registration by the way. These days one of the Linea driver dips headlamp and smiles at me.

    Friends share you similar experiences, i have never done such things in my previous two vehicles.

    I usually form a convoy whenever I find a fiat vehicle and dip highlights whenever I find a fiat vehicle on the opposite lane. Also while cornering at high speed my kid standing in the back row fell on co-passengers two times.

    I usually follow another Fiat car. If it is behind me give space to overtake. Why to view it in rear view mirror when there is a scope of seeing it in front of my eyes.
    Never thought about flashing the headlights.
    While parking if any other Fiat is there try to park near to it.Otherwise always like contrast and park near a dezire if available.
