    BMW (The Beamer)

    Z4 sDrive 35i (I let out a deep sigh, which I trust the salegirl thought was for her!!!)

    Again a 300 hp, 3.0-liter, inline 6-cylinder engine beauty.







    A NoNo (Sorry guys, I prefer to call it this way) and a Manja (Please note a sneaky guy sitting inside the NoNo and chatting on his mobile ::T )



    FIAT...No...must be Preethi (A popular mixer/grinder brand)....No, It should be FIAT...

    This is what was going in my mind when I saw this 500 parked amongst some super bikes. Apparently, the 500 was displayed in a Luxury Pavillion. I understand that Preethi runs the California Suberbike School in Chennai and thus the "I too am here" kind of display but guys, I must tell you, I could not stop laughing when I saw the SE promoting Mixers and Grinders!!! I spoke to him and asked, what is this car doing here, to which he replied, this s from FIAT. I said, I know that and he just moved away before I could ask another question. If FIAT has shared the pavillion with Preethi, then FIAT, that is baaaad. But if FIAT did not and Preethi did, then FIAT, that is even worse. How can you impress the customers if you not even gonna be a part of the game, let alone winning it. Did I mention that there was no SE from FIAT at all!!! Look at your step-brother TATA. At least they tried.



    As for the accessories, I really do not want to spend any time on that as apart from Bosch, there was nothing, selling some car washing Aquatek 100 and 100 plus and some gardening machinery.

    My only doubt about the SE claim that it is from Fiat is that, that 500 was dirty had scratches in the rear. It was also registered in AP, not sure why they drove it here. Must be something to do with Preethi themselves.

    But if they hadn't got a stall then we couldn't have seen a single fiat.

    Nice pictures of the Porsche and Beemer.

    You probably are right teky, but if it was Preethi who displayed the 500, I am forced to think why didn't they brand their company's name on the car! If not a sticker, then probably a placard at least. In fact, every bike present there was gleaming with "Preethi". Secondly Preethi is involved in suberbike training and the display of 500 does not make sense at all. Let the mystery be a mytery!!!

    By the way, as I was entering the exhibit hall, a small kid seemed very enthusiastic looking at the 500. I thought , wow,the car is already an attraction with people...and then suddenly the kid said something which made my heart sink. He told his father pointing at the 500," Dad, look....the Nano"!!! :A

    I think FIAT must have not participated in the Exhibition, its the preethi who mus have displayed the 500 owned by them, i could not see any fiat officials also in the stand.
