Some from my side...
Thanks to all the members for keeping aside all their hustle n bustle routines and making this event a grand one, even by their sheer presence. Thanks to Torrid Motors for their wonderful gesture of quenching some thirsty fiats and Shri. Mangesh Kodalkar who has by gracing us with his presence, once again lived upto his reputation, time and again in helping us with our small and big SOS calls !
Even if myself and Volt where unable to make it to the meet in time for various reasons, we were nontheless very happy to reach there as early as we could. Some of our member friends obliged us by giving us quick updates about the meet. And one could definitely feel the spirit in the air as they say!
We loved the food and to our surprise the event was sponsored by Fiat. Well managed guys::T, a great gesture by Fiat and a sort of triumph for all of us TFIans ..!:clap
Great to see one and all and also the popular members on the forum including TFI Admin Shriyut Amogh; all of them in their real Avatars !
Hope to see many more pictures of the meet! Since a picture is worth a thousand words, a million would be better.:evilsmileKeep them coming guys..!
Also, wish you all a 5-in-1 — Makar Sankranti, Bhogali Bihu, Lohri, Pongal and Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi.
First off all a big thanks to Fiat and the organizers for conducting such a wonderful meet where like minded brains came together and shared their passion.
Other then points mentioned above one good thing that came out was that Fiat is constantly updating n improving their inventory system and Manish promised the things will smoothen out by March. Additionally all old generation fiat cars will be accepted at service centers and no service center can deny servicing the same.
Looking forward to many such meets and ofcourse the factory visit will be a dream visit for me since i want see in person how my car is crafted

I sincerely thank all the members who contributed to the success of the MEGA meet. This was for the first time Fiat officials got involved in the meet along with the dealers and our team showed utmost display of enthusiasm and passion.
Thanks for the great pictures our members have captured. This makes the event more memorable.
Also a special thanks to all members who followed the traffic rules and i am glad that there were no accidents/ incidents during the meet.
Three cheers to TEAM FIAT INDIA

The final set of pics from my side. It was a great pleasure to click the photos of the Italian beauties and their owners. Looking forward to a much bigger participation from TFI members in the next meet.
The scorpion on Rishikesh's car
The effervescent Mr Manish Mishra from Fiat who braved all the volleys thrown in by the TFIians. Hats off to him for calmly answering every questions and having enough guts to admit Fiat's failures in some places. His positive approach aasured the TFIians that good things are going to happen with Fiat in coming days
Torrid Motor's presentation
Sky Moto's representative explaining the features. Some of the offers as seen on the ppt were eagerly lapped by enthusiatic TFIians.
The meet would have never been so successful had the better halves had refused the participation. Smiling faces ensured that TFIians could discuss cars at greater lenghts
The man in Black tee is the Mr Dependable - Mangesh Kodalkar
Last but not the last hats off to this young senior citizen who managed to scale greater heights even young TFIians wouldnt have dared to. Thats Harsh's father atop the pillar to get a group snap of the beauties. This shows the passion for the cars where age is no boundary.
Wow, what a meet. I never expected it to be so big. It was my first mega meet and boy was it mega? It was indeed huge. Our convoy was a definite head turner. It was not only the joy of going for the mega meet but also the joy of reaching there forming a convoy, the joy of getting to meet members you have never seen, only heard of. The excitement was enormous. I would like to thank the FIAT dealers and the FIAT officials for patiently listening to our suggestions, issues, concerns etc. They were all ears for it. All in all it was a great meet. However, having said that, I think there should be have been a bit more communication between the Pune and Mumbai guys which was lacking according to me. Next time we have to make sure that this thing changes and we have more interaction in form the of games, quizzes and any other activities which will bridge the gap between us. All said and done, my wife managed to click a few snaps as I was driving, I am attaching it here. I also managed to click a few pictures myself in the evening. I can't say how much I regret not clicking photos throughout the day. I know I could have done much better. I was just being a lazy bum I guess. Next time for sure.
Fantastic clicks Channa, Girish, Harsh and Pankaj. Regret if i have not mentioned anyone. I was just too excited to click any pictures. I second The opinion of Pankaj(Lunafiatic). There was a communication barrier between the folks from Mumbai and Pune. At the same time I feel it wasn't intentional. Hope it fades away till the next meet.
Absolutely fantastic photographs! It's a real treat to watch so many Fiat beauties together moving/parked in an ordered manner.
It looks like that you guys had a really great time at the Pune-Mumbai meet, which somehow I missed out because of some work at home.
