    Actually Satya asked specifically about bigger engines on Linea .The answer from Antonio was that they will give more importance to dealerships for next financial year and then they will think about this. No direct yes or no. I saw Sathya discussing in detail with Antonio during lunch session. He can able to share more

    Thanx to Amogh & Sandip for hardwork. Thanks to Fiat & officers & subirdinates for hospitality. In India " Atithi Devo Bhava"

    Food was excellent especially Veg Biryani.

    The most I like test track & roller test of suspension checking.

    I couldn't bring camera due to lack of spare memory card.
    My mismanagement due to official workload.

    Powertrain section was amazing.
    I could observed MJD engine by 360° view.

    Willing to post much more. But afterwords coz my pc is out of order.
    Typing from cell phone.

    One of the employee who was escorting us to power train confirmed that the alpha romeo and bravo including few more cars form the stack of cars for Mr. Boparia.

    He was head of power train and now is ceo.

    About the mjd being provided to maruti. We found out that maruti has a different starter motor and intake shell. Rest the power train is completely same.

    To my question about "fiat has launched upgrades of linea and punto in other countries and since linea and punto in india are already 3years old, when is fiat planning to bring a refreshed punto amd linea?" Mr. Enrico replied that the new punto is already being tested and is designed keeping in mind the changing markets and its expectations. He also said that new punto was put to test against another hatch and punto won tje test handsomely.

    We should be expecting the punto with new interiors and some exteriors changes by the end of next year when the ASS and sales are in place

  8. The factory visit was fabulous!! though it kick-started for me and shahjan's team with hitches (because of me) and granduer and tron made sure i remember the incident the whole day kept pulling my leg all the time!!
    actually what had happened was that the reporting time was 530 and me being the excited bum reached kharghar at 04:25 am -_-
    so i was actually the only one there and just to wade of the darkness had kept my lights on! [Projectors + fogs]
    then grandeur spotted me and told me to follow him to the correct venue and assemble there!
    NO STREET LIGHTS! And all assembly + instructions were being given in darkness and under Shahjans phone flash light! so I decided to become chivalrous and leave my lights on again!
    A good amount of 2 and half hours to dawn and my lights were on full time!!
    When finally the time to leave came!
    i crank and whosh...battery drained!No jumpers nothing could get her to growl again. Aaron said leave the car here and drive up with someone else! hell no i wouldn't do that! I said i'll head back home call RSA and etc..
    anyways dhakka start zindabad! the car finally started after almost 25 mins of struggles and we drove off! In style (everyone else) me with a cheeky apologetic smile :)bye )
    anyways it was one of a kind of visit for me! and i loved every bit!! I feel i now belong to something larger and more meaningful than just leisure driving!
    "Team Fiat India"

    thank you one and all!
