    Some pics from my side. Will post them in 2-3 sets in order of our journey to pune, VIT's Journey to ranjangaon and the few pics at factory, will try not to repeat the previously repeated pics. The fourth time I ve had to upload, the first 3 times I uploaded , added comments to 10 pics and the internet connection died out, so no comments for these pics, neither are they in the order that I had attached them, dont know where I went wrong. :A :A

    Had a wonderful time and met a lot of nice like minded people at the fiat factory. Thanks to all the moderators who worked hard to make this visit a grand success. Looking forward to more such get-togethers. Here are a few snaps from my side.

    What a wonderful day that was! Again, thanks a ton dear moderators for making this a huge success - need to thank the fellow TFIans as well for showing the maturity and discipline that we have shown. Thank you FIAT for the cars you make, the stickers, T-Shirts, food, 500 mouse, and for the great time we had at your facility!

    One thing that really amazed me was that the entire gang of top officials waited for more than 10 minutes for people who had been to the fuel station before they started off the discussions. Shows how much they value the presense of each one of us.

    No wonder why people are so emotional about the brand! Hats off Fiat!

    :eek:fftopic BTW, can someone explain why my MJD doesn't catch anything more than 160-165 Km/hr?!! :mad:

    MJD is capable of doing 175 km/hr, I did it last weekend, went up to 180, thanks to the mild slope for helping after reaching 175km/hr on flat surface :redcar

    Hey , how was the cars stability at those speeds. This is the first time I have heard a punto/Linea going upto 180km/hr, except for Fastlove I guess. Was there any vibrations in the steering wheel?

    Drive safe.

    I have done 170 a couple of times before the first service, but of late I have not been able to do more than 160-165. However, at 170, the car was indeed stable and did not notice any vibrations. I have had to brake hard at 160 plus once (to bring the speed back to 60-70) - very much confidence inspiring. Yes, but we all know the limits - and we are responsible. You know what I mean?

    170 + Punto is still planted, you only feel if you can get more free road then may be you can go to more higher speed. Nothing can beet this type of handling.
