    Excellent pics of every Italian beauty!!! The Abarth was fascinating :)

    I apologize for making it too late to the event. It was because of me that even Sujith turned up late. If everything went as per planned, we would have been at the meeting point at 9:30AM. The issue was the 10k Marathon. Since part of the Cubbon Road is closed for Metro work, this time the Marathon went through Ulsoor road. I had parked my Palio at my office on Ulsoor road. I had to go in another car and get the Palio. Due to the event, atleast 2-3 kms around Ulsoor road was choked. It took nearly 1 hour to reach nearby to office which is just 5kms from my house. Until hitting Ulsoor road, I had no clue why the traffic pile up. Once I was a stone's throw away from Ulsoor road, it took another 20 minutes to reach office. Luckily, once I got onto my Palio, I could come down to Mekhri Circle in 30 minutes.

    During the above drama, I asked several times Sujith to move on and I would be late. He just wouldn't listen to me and waited at Mekhri circle all the time until I reached there.

    Yes Hemanth's car is 1.2 Emotion. But he has some big fat tyre, 205 section I think.

    sorry for deviating from the topic but
    after a LOT of measurements, and dismantling of the dampers, i realized that the petrol has softer front dampers. hence the ride height remains the same.
    this might not be entirely true but it was my observation after comparing my dampers to that of the petrol one.

    Yes mine is a 1.2 Emotion
    The petrol sisters 1.2 and 1.4 have 2mm more GC than their diesel brother 1.3 (173 and 171 as per fiat's website)
    Over and above this, because of my tyre change(205/60 R15 as against the stock of 165/80 R14), I've added 3.7mm more.

    So effectively my car has 5.7mm more GC than your car.

    good morning Hemanth, adding to what u said above i feel in that due to unevenness of the road the shock absorbers had just got decompressed at the same moment when the picture wa clicked.. :):)
