My vote goes to Bronzo Scuro.
My vote is for Bronze Scuro. I own a TW Punto but if there was a BS Punto, i would have really tempted to pick that color.
About maintenance,scratches do gets highlighted in TW, especially if you are some one who love to keep the car shining always.
A little challenge if anyone wants to find the colour of the car that i have booked.
My personal opinion - any car, and esp a sedan (and that too of TJet's magnitude) looks fabulous in Black. That's why I chose that colour.
Most certainly it does, but only when it carries that deep wet look. To keep it that way, one has to be prepared to spend on periodic professional detailing and also a good grade DIY detailing kit like Meguiars. Money apart, one also needs to be prepared to put time and effort on regular waxing, buffing et all. Any dark colour especially black are therefore that much more difficult to maintain, 'coz if that is dirty and scratched up, the car can look pretty dilapidated. Much more than lighter tones.
Looks aside, I do not recommend dark colours to anyone who does a lot of highway driving or drives in poorly lit urban areas. It can get really tricky for fellow motorists to spot a black or a very dark color.
If the area where one lives gets very foggy like a hill station, the color to buy is red. That is most easily spotted under low visibility conditions.
Having said all that, don't buy a colour because merely logic says so. But if there is a colour you like as well, probably not as much as a dark colour, but is more pragmatic, I would recommend you to settle for that. But under no circumstance one should get a colour if you dont like it purely driven by logic.
I agree. For me, it was always a dream to own a black sedan. Hence, I threw the logic part out of my brain window and went ahead with my heart. Heck, choosing a Fiat (and a petrol car) in India today itself is a logic-less decision by 95% junta! At the time of purchase, I mentally prepared myself for a detailing job every 6-9 months, depending on the scratches etc. Let's hope I am able to maintain the color and sheen as much as possible!
On another note (logically speaking), I noticed that TJets have the most unique colors. This sometimes translates into lesser re-sale value. Adding that Fiat badge further lessens the value for the Indian market.
Then ofcourse, who in his right mind would want to sell the TJet! And I'm sure all of us here have bought Fiat (and TJet) for the unique features they possess - drive, handling, braking etc etc. So resale is usually not even the last thing on my mind!
So true!! I guess that applies to all T-Jetters, doesn't it? Re-Sale??? yeah probably to each other for a variety of color may be...
May be you booked BS
Congrats Active Lurker
I did book the BS and my vote goes to this colour.... It has a sort of chameleon effect with the colour actually showing different shades in different light conditions.... While in the shade it looks much darker, in light it is closer to beige and in the night, it really shines out... I love this colour and also the Tuscan wine, which has a very upmarket rich feel to it.... though thats definitely much harder to maintain
yup i've voted for BS and i thought someone would find that out, anyways BS(NOT bullshit) it is
