    You're spot on!!! LOL! :evilsmile

    I seriously feel, FIAT should re-think again on their strategy! Especially after Honda coming out with D-Tec!

    They need not worry about the 2013 stocks getting stuck as few are left, but there are plenty of 2012 stocks. If this is what is causing them not to announce the facelifts to the media and keep it low profile, they will only lose more and not gain anything.

    600 odd vehicles still pending to find a buyer. Phew! The marketing teams needs to work overtime.

    They just need to work. I doubt whether the market ever saw them work.
    Half the buyers go with a decision to buy fiat or by word of mouth propoganda by existing users.

    They better sell the old stock with some discounts and at the same time announce the refreshed ones. That will result in some activity.

    Not sure whats stopping them to advertise like they did for the Tjet. Those got sold quite quickly for a petrol. There are quire a few diesels sitting in the plant which can be sold quite quickly with effective marketing. Its way better than sit and account for the inventory costs.

    I have done my bit, got 3 buyers for the Fiats sitting in the Factory yard. Will post more details on the vehicles at the yard (only 2012 manufactured).

    Wow great work there Krishna. If you get to talk to some top hats, do ask them whats stopping them from being more aggressive or waking up at right time? Looks like all have gone like Govt employees inside FIAL.

    Guys, did any one try sending a mail to FIAT India, stating that their new website doesn't show any detail on the type of gear-box being used in both Punto and Linea?

    Or have they removed it for some weird reasons? And also, the website shows, 2013 FIAT vehicles specifications, when I checked in for the specifications of Punto! :confused:

    Hi guys

    Minor modified car (MY 2013) linea expected launch 15.04.2013.
    Delayed from 03.04.13 as planned earlier. Reasons; not yet 75 dealers, they are 68 till now.
    Not many mods yet. Possible changes: remote control for car radio. Modified alloys probably coloured. Modified rear seat.
    New pearl white color also being launched.

    Let us see.

    Any inside scoop on 90hp Punto 2013? Or are the probable changes both for Linea and Punto?
