    I mean if that is what FIAT calls sport then ask them to visit TFI, many have a "sport" version even before FIAT thought about this ..
    what buffoons man.

    And i wonder what they call the really modified one like remaps, FFEs that have already gone into our puntos/lineas.
    I guess they will call it the esse-esse version and hike the price by 3Lakhs ??:lol:lol

    Got a call from Prerna motors bangalore. The sales personal told me that within 2 days punto sport will be in showroom for display.

    He mentioned the same set of changes which has been posted earlier on this thread.

    He also confirmed color and ORVM combinations -

    White with Red ORVMs
    Black with Red ORVMs
    Red with Black ORVMs

    Friend,neither PALIO 1.6 nor LINEA T-JET tested success in INDIA.FIAT doesn't want to commit the same mistake again.If they were launching a really so called sporty product then we are ready to bash citing the examples of failures of PALIO 1.6 & LINEA T-JET. Whatever FIAT does we are ready here for bashing.Criticism is good but criticism for the sake of criticism,NOT.We must keep it in our mind that our comments do have an impact on the buying decision of thounsands of prospective PUNTO & LINEA buyers.This attitude of ours has an indirect effect on the sales figure of FIAT.
    FIAT is trying to establish itself as a successful player in INDIA.Let's wait for sometime before we start bashing their every move.

    PUNTO has broke a record(of covering GQ) set by HONDA-CRV.This news(originally from MOTOROIDS)has been posted in the MARKETING-- thread.But only few people commented on that remarkable achievement by both PUNTO & our fellow TFI-ANS.Because people are busy bashing FIAT.
    This forum is turning out to be TFBI(TEAM FIAT BASHERS INDIA).

    Sandipan - with due respect if you read through the complete thread you'll understand no body is trying to bash Fiat in here. They are all questioning why such a decal treatment is being quoted as a sports variant. This has been done in the past by Maruti, Hyundai & Ford and would've received the same amount of flak anywhere and here. Yeah we all love our Fiat's but can't turn blind towards anything they do! Anyway let's wait till the launch and let someone at TFI TD it before us passing comments

    THANKS TEKY.We criticise FIAT for their poor marketing(obviously no doubt about that)but when FIAT follow the marketing tricks of the more successful companies we again criticise them.We all love FIAT so we must give some breathing space(timelimit) for our loved one.Anyway let's wait for another 24+ hours.Honestly,me too is not reading too much into the sports version but accepting it as a purely marketing effort at a minimum possible cost.

    There was a difference in sports S variant of ford fiesta. It got better ride quality and cornering ability compared to non sport version. Apart from that all Maruti, Hyundai has done is simply nonsense things. Fiat should not fall in to that. If they are going to do that call it a 90HP plus or some thing like that, The Sports+Fiat does give different level of expectation. Let us wait and see.

    When the Honda Civic sport was launched it had a spoiler, skirting, sport pedals, knobs and sport decals. They sold it as limited edition without any change in the gear ratios or engine state of tune. Now Fiat does it the honda way. We all expect another S10 from the 90Hp sport. No way.
    What the fiat fan expects:

    A 150+ Hp engine
    17 inch tires
    Panoramic sky window
    Interiors of the Fiat 500 Gucci edition

    No way buddies....
    Fiat will give you some stickers and as Ganges said a wax polish :dance.
