    It is just temporary , i had some communication with them and they will have the parts back in a few months and have suggested it will be even more "scaled up" than now.

    I have received an e-mail from them yesterday, stating Linea/Punto parts will be discontinued temporarily.
    They still have some 11 parts for Linea and 14 parts for Punto (alloys, lights etc)

    It's good that they will re-introduce Linea and Punto parts again. There could be a possibility that procuring Genuine parts via Fiat is becoming a problem for them. I think some dealers may have pressurised Fiat to see to it that 99rpm sale would be stopped.

    99rpm selling Fiat parts is positive for Fiat not for 99rpm alone. Fiat should understand that parts available online is a big plus for customers and will also help to change the perception on Brand Fiat.

    A very bad move if Fiat enforced it, there are many Punto and Linea out of warranty which shouldn't be dependent upon FASS except for minor jobs. 99rpm helped a lot for my Palio restoration.

    Very bad news for Fiat owners. So now we have to depend on FASS for everything ? I'm not going to recommend FIAT to anyone in that case.

    If 99rpm is saying they'll take 2 months to sort out things, something is seriously wrong , and I'm in doubt if they'll stock the parts even after 2 months.

    Not a good news, but I am sure no one is buying Fiat because of 99rpm spares.

    This is one of good option to have online site to buy spares, but that can't be a reason to buy or not buy any brand.

    Yes. No one buys Fiat because of 99rpm. But, for a brand which has an image of poor parts availability, the 99rpm model really helped to thrash that perception. Many ask me, why did I buy Fiat as the service is poor and parts won't be available. I was replying to them that those are things of past and parts are even available online which will be delivered at our doorstep. This definitely sent some positive vibes. Fiat may be risking to lose this if they have imposed this restriction on 99rpm.

    True ramesh..couple of workshop owners surprised when i talked about 99RPM.com. Infact they have written website name on their Notes. 99rpm was the answer to people who questions about spares availablity of FIAT. Tillnow i have not ordered any spare from 99rpm but that website gave me confidence of buying Palio stile which is already discontinued 4 years ago.
