    I’m bitten by FIAT bug. Wherever I see FIAT on road, I can’t resist clicking it. These are few snaps I took today morning while roaming around in streets of Gran Canarias, Las Palmas Island (I regret for not carrying proper camera but making good use of cell phone as can’t use it for hefty roaming charges).
    Looking at FIAT Panda, I think it will be an appropriate product to launch in India below Punto in B1 segment for mass production but I’m afraid people may think FIAT copied its design from MSW-R whereas it may be other way round as Japanese are always inspired by European car designs. Next is a FIAT UV, which again is a probable launch in India sometime in future. I forget its name but does it matter, I know TFIans are good at Googling everything. Then a feast for eyes seeing refreshed looking Punto & Panda back to back. We may see these fresh looking Puntos 2013 soon on Indian roads as well. Another silver colour Panda in front of Car rental office though didn’t see many FIAT cars in this city. tfi1.jpg tfi2.jpg tfi3.jpg tfi4.JPG tfi5.JPG tfi6.jpg

    I was in Barcelona a couple of months ago and was surprised to see so many Lineas as taxis. Didn't even know Linea was launched in Spain, so was surprised to see so many.

    Every day i am spotting lots of punto's and Lineas in chennai city , but so far i have not seen with TFI stickers.
    I have stickers on my punto , so i eagerly watch the drivers of the fiat cars for any reaction....
    lets hope to meet some fiat cars with TFI Stickers soon.....

    I too face the same situation in bangalore. Today itself i spotted 3 GP of various colors (Tuscan wine, Red, BNW) and none of them had TFI stickers. Either they are member but dislike to put up a sticker or they are yet to receive one. But in the later case, their car looked a bit old with more scratches and all so i guess later choice could be ruled out :confused:

    Zenwalker - Not every FIAT owner is a member here and not every member wants to put stickers. I for one surely will not put any stickers on my car. When I am driving on the road, I represent myself and am responsible for my driving style. I would hate for people to relate my driving style to any online forum. I used to have another forum's sticker on my Palio in the initial days of ownership, but when I heard people commenting, "Oh, you are a member in that forum? Membership there seems to come with a license to drive like a maniac. I mean, I have seen lots of cars with that forum sticker being driven very recklessly", I promptly removed those stickers and resolved never to put any forum stickers on my car. As posted in another thread, I will not put dealership sticker on my car either.

    On a different note, this thread seems to have run its life. I mean, I spot atleast a dozen Puntos and Lineas on the road every single day and it is pointless to keep posting here. I guess we should feel glad that there are a lot more FIAT cars out there, which would only mean better ASS.

    When I bought my car it had Concorde sticker on the rear windscreen. When I went for second free service, I asked KHT to remove it. And yes, they removed it, but added their sticker. Next service, I went back to concorde. I asked them to remove all stickers except "Follow me at TFI". Sometime later I removed that too. Decided to remove all stickers. I still have the five of six stickers that Sandeep sent. May be I will put one sometime, but dont know when.
    I think you are right there. Punto or Linea is no more a rare specimen on Indian roads. May not be as common as marutis or fords, but numbers on the road (not sales) are decent and cannot be ignored.
