    Thanks Ghodlur. Yes I have booked a 90HP Evo. I am not too keen on taking FGI as I am quite happy with my present insurer (HDFC Ergo). But I stand to lose out on the free insurance FIAT is offering, should i go elsewhere. Hence will stay put for a year, before switching over to another company.

    And, I am not sure where the XUV tagline came from? Not sure how to remove it....

    Got the VIN no a couple of days back. Feb'15 manufactured. Heading this Saturday for the PDI. Wish me luck people.

    Will be taking the FIAT PDI checklist along with me.

    Thank you Saket. It will be a week or more I guess, before I can finally lay my hands on the vehicle. Awaiting loan approval from SBI.

    Is this done? Any surprises?

    So did you stay with FGI or opted for HDFC Ergo?

    @Murphy_Fiat - Thank you for your wishes. I will provide the PDI update after Saturday.


    @ghodlur - The PDI will be done this Saturday (21st Feb). Yes, for now its FGI. Will evaluate future options during the renewal.

    Finally I managed to get the PDI done yesterday (21/03/2015). A big shout to Tauseef from KHT Fiat, for patiently answering all my queries during the inspection. Attaching some random pics taken during the same. My apologies for the poor picture quality.

    @ghodlur - I had mistakenly mentioned the PDI date to be 21st Feb in my earlier post above. Its actually 21st Mar.

    Initial impressions during the PDI:

    1) Overall, everything looks to be in order. A few places where finishing is not of the desired quality, but nothing that cant be lived without:)
    2) The diesel burner has a nice humm to it. Loved the sound...
    3) Its a well debated and discussed fact, that FIAT didnt provide the gunmetal alloys on the 90HP. My personal opinion - the stock ones dont look so bad either. In fact, if you coloured them black, then they might enhance the overall look of the car.
    4) Initial ODO reading is at 12 Kms with the H marker as can be seen from the pic above.
