Ok Bala, my love and passion is towards engineering and built quality and design, more towards certain subtle aspects that are unique to Fiat cars and much more pronouced and cool in Punto and Linea. I personally never like into getting a blind discussion ridiculing one product to prove how my car or brand is better and other brands and cars are inferior. Unless it is for poking some fun in a fun-filled discussion, but certainly no offense meant. So blind brand loyalty towards Fiat is out of question. Having said that how much do you think your or my individual opinion influences mass appeal or product sales. That sir is a misplaced belief if you think one man can make a difference (without ofcourse dedicating his life to a cause). People will be jealous and ridicule if you buy a BMW too "saying you are spending in excess" on a vehicle when luxury cars are available at 1/2 the price. A top industrialist was ridiculed of having paid an electric bill of 70L (with discount) for his new house or so the story goes. So that doesnt stop one making irrational decisions or behaving in such manner. Why do you care what people think. Is your decision so irrational, certainly not. If you lost faith in brand or product dont even tell, just get rid of it and get some free peace of mind instead. Also people who you say think you bought a second hand Linea for 1lakh rupees are morons, do you care what morons think?
