@Turbothinghy Is that because they're not ok with the quality of the dealers (talking sales process and hr etc here, not ASS) in these two cities? It is true enough that Mumbai does not seem to have a better-than-average dealership? And with Pandit withdrawing...? The Abarth Punto and Avventura will be available at most/all Fiat dealers, i guess, it's only the 595 dealers that have been restricted. Which is fair: 30 lakh rupee "connoisseur" customers (rather than 'consumers') cannot really be sold-to out of the Maruti/Tata/Fiat/Mahindra/Chevy/Ford/Renault/Nissan, mass-market type of dealerships,not that Honda's are any good frommy experience, though Hyundai's and Toyota's probably are (many of them in the bigger cities that is). btw, which do you enjoy driving more: the Vespa or the Fiat, in city or ghat? In my case it's an emphatic vote for the (yellow) Vespa! Thinking seriously of picking up the upcoming (rumoured) 150cc FI one later this year....rather than bothering to yearn for the Abarth Punto!
