    Hi Guys,

    Not sure where exactly I need to post this query hence adding in this post.

    I booked an Exotica Red Evo on 30th July, I was given a VIN number and told it will take 10 days, but today 4th August the dealer says the cars were already received on 2nd night. Just felt a bit weird that a car was deliveredfrom Pune in 2 days. I will go thro the PDI,but am a bit worried now since I know a customer had an issue with a slightly damaged car at the same dealer ship. What if they havef fixed it and trying to dump it on me ? Do you guys know who had this issue at KHT fiat recently ?

    @Anand Shankar : not to worry buddy. Dealer has just given you the VIN #. it's not registered on your name yet. Do a thorough PDI. Check for any paint difference on the body. Make sure all the tyres are new. If you are not happy with the PDI reject the car and ask for different one.

    Quick update folks - Payment made towards the NEW LINEA MJD EMOTION, Awaiting cheque to clear. Meanwhile today I observed that car's windshield was 2015 made and all other glasses were 2014 made I guess that's okay as its Jan 2015 manufacturing as per VIN code of "A HZ" BUT the rubber peice holding the windshield externally on driver side was missing a plug and screw looked bit tampered. I was told that rubber flap was replaced as that was not okay... Any thing to worry about here?

    Today I was told by the dealer that PDI report shall not be shared with the customer (buyer of the car even after full payment not at the time of delivery) as they have instructions not to do so from FIAT RSM... Is this true? If so not a fair practice. As till date for all my new AUTOMOBILES I have seen the PDI report...

    Took a good look at the what may be my future jet if all goes well, however found the same issue of the discs being rusted, the sales guy dismissed my concern by saying all stock vehicles have this issues, I was a bit skeptical , checked the VIN number whic was on engraved on a small plate bolted near the spare in the boot , it was a Feb 2015 make and the odo read H 44.

    @Rahul Grover , please ensure that rust should not be on the surface where brake pads touch, else it's fine. I am sure you are doing the PDI but prefer/insist on a more recently manufactured car than a 6-7 month old one.

    @Rahul Grover - Fiat's inventory is normally 4 months & that's absolutely fine, That rust will just Wade away as you drive for a kilometer. It's just due to the water droplets left on discs after a wash... This happens in ever car... Left unused for few days after washing.. So you getting Jan / Feb car? What's the discount on listed price?
