thanks tony, but i request ,please do not compare fiat with japanese and korean cars. relating to them definitly shadows the splendour offiat cars. i do not mean japs and koreans are bad but i mean there is a huge difference or shall i say a huge gap? it feels like relating aluminium to steel. where aluminium is aluminium and steel is definitly steel. __________________________________________________________________________________ today again one of my friend requested (through fone)for a drive well i was not with him so i asked my brother to guide him,said friend was opting for suzuki alto,wagon-r or indica vista (he has been using rental cars). now after tasting the sheer brilliance of italian engineering he is just stuck. as unfortunately he does not have budget for punto and do not want previously thought cars either.the last words is still echoing in my ears which makes me a proud fiat owner "after driving all those cars since so many years it is today i drive a different car where i felt i am driving than just boring sitting " glad to see that he was very happy as he kept repeating how he felt.i think he dropped the idea of car purchase for a while.
