    Hello everybody!</SPAN></SPAN>

    It was earlier this year that I saw a Grande Punto moving out of my office parking (in Pune) with TFI stickers on it. By this time, I was already a GP fan (needless to mention Linea also) after having read multiple reviews and discussions about GP on team-bhp forum.</SPAN></SPAN>
    Immediately after reaching home I checked out TFI website and since then have been visiting regularly. </SPAN></SPAN>

    Although I don’t own a GP yet, I like the GP much, mainly due to its magnificent looks. The epic MJD, tank like build, ever so planted at higher speeds, 195 sized tyres, etc, to follow.</SPAN>
    </SPAN>
    Premier President was the first car we (family) owned back in the 90s, where I learnt my initial driving lessons.</SPAN></SPAN>
    I had TDed the GP twice while we were in the decision process to buy a premium diesel hatch (for my father); in the end bought an i20 Asta in June 2011 mainly due to lack of good TASS back in my home town Satara even though we had liked the GP more.
    </SPAN></SPAN>
    I plan to go for my GP 90 in early to mid 2012, hoping that the latest GP Evo comes to India by then. </SPAN></SPAN></SPAN></SPAN>:)
    Is it alright to be a part of this forum even if one does not own the marvel?</SPAN></SPAN>

    welcome you will never regret your wait. You are cent percent right when you described the qualities of a fiat .The other day i was in my gp at around 8: 30 pm doing 90 kmph when a jerk had six lights in total all angled delibrately upward blinded me for a few seconds, and all of a sudden a fox jumped out from the sugarcane plantation and scooted across the road, i couldnt see it till i was just 6 meters or so when i stood on my brakes, and steered aroud the fox, the sound of the tyres was like the squeak made by a hundred dogs, it was then i realised the value and sturdyness and control of a fiat. wow what a car. This was the second time it happened, the other time was with a buffalo that too at the dead of night.

    Thank you guys!
    I am hoping for new GP to arrive in early 2012 atleast.


    @KedarBendre - my office is located in Erandwane area of Pune.
    By the way, many a times I see a BNW Abarth GP zooming past in the mornings around 9:15 on Sopan Baug/BT Kawade Rd. Is that your beauty? must admit, looks stunning she!

    Lets hope something from FIAT in Auto Expo 2012. I was waiting for Punto Evo but cant restricted me from buying Punto 90HP. Punto EVO would be more costlier than Punto 90HP. :confused

    Yeah. Waiting for Auto Expo 2012; more towards Fiat updates from it. Fingers crossed.
    If Evo is not going to make it to India soon then it will be the current 90HP for me :)
