    Great Comradery!

    Great event guys! Just the kind of event to develop more belonging towards FIAT! Has anyone put it on some leading News papers? I feel that would be a nice attempt to make the brand FIAT more popular and project the fan base of FIAT....

    Great comradery! all of us who could not make it envy all those who were there...
  7. I will try loading the pics again tomorrow..

    After 5 days of driving driving n driving, we are finally back home after a 4000Kms roadtrip from Trivandrum-blr-pune-blr-tvm !! Our Faithful steed took us all the way without any hassles n issues and it was a bliss in those awesome highways with the wonderful handling and suspension.

    Although met up with many guys, i also missed out meeting many known ' handles' in tfi but not their faces. It was a wonderful occation that TFI put forward and a thousand congos to amogh n team for their effort. It was nice meeting you mod !
    Raj29 and venka had helped me to join their convoy at bangy but unfortunately, i couldnt meet them personally at the meet point or at the venue, sorry for that mates... will do sometime later :) . Some mere handles at the forum became faces to me like teky, sathya, nithin.v, ashpalio,rajeev pillai, amogh, grandeur, tron, ravi sir,livelyyoungman,jayakrishna and many more. Nice meeting you all you guys !!
    Another surprise was meting up with JK at McD sholagiri at 3Am today morning when we stopped while going back to tvm frm blore. also met lineadriver at a toll booth near hubli while driving from pune to blr.
    From the factory , we decided to go to cafe , but got held up in traffic n took us whole 2 hours to reach KP area at 8o clock to see it shut down. Sad that such a caffe is shut at early hours of night, like a showroom... i coudnt get the cap from factory, was hoping to buy from the caffe, but had to leave saddened.
    The onward drive spirited and the fuel needle was going down like crazy which resulted in almost 4 tankfulls to pune with an average of around 14 !! :( :eek: . So we decided to take play safe while coming back n test the mileage fig. reached blr with 1.5 tankfulls.during that, for a short time before entering blr, we tried to hold the gas at 70kmph for some time n it returned an awesome fig of 32kmpl with ac !! :O . But still the overal fig was just 15 . Then we decided to reach blore from tvm with just one tankfull of diesel. filled up at 100 ft road in the morning and the leg was fixed at 90-100kmph for the entire stretch from
    blr to tvm and surprisingly, we reached home with the orange light,which staretd glowing about 10 kms before home. that was an really relaxing drive of 780 kms with 23kmpl average, in exactly 12 hours.. highly satisfied !! This was almost the same time we took to reach bangalore on our way forward at much higher speeds !!

    All the pics are with my friend. will upload them slowly :)

    When i saw a TJet badge on that palio's front num plate, i rushed to check it out, asked an official who was near it n he replied that its just another palio used to shuttle inside factory n no other surprise.. :(
