    ...makes you wonder whats up with these blokes at FIAT administration!!!

    also brings to the mind an old corporate saying -

    " some people are just happy to go home with a big fat paycheck at the end of the day with ZERO responsibility. "

    I don' think any such clause is there...I am not sure though. (please confirm with your area RTO on the matter, might vary from region to region)
    as far as Mumbai RTO is concerned i did not come accross such clause on their website.(maybe i skipped it)
    This is what i found regarding the learner's license through thier website-- SOURCE : Mumbai Traffic Police

    RESTRICTIONS
    A person who holds a learner's licence is permitted to drive only if he is accompanied by a duly licensed driver who is sitting in a position from where he can control the vehicle and bring it to a stop if required. The vehicle must display 'L' painted signs, both in the front and the rear end of the vehicle.

    A person holding a learner's licence for a motorcycle is not permitted to carry any pillion-rider except the person who is required to be present for imparting instructions and ensuring safety (as mentioned above).

    Chrysler literally smashing the trends:cool

    The Chrysler Group announced their financial results from the first quarter of 2012 and the results were good – very good – with the automaker showing a profit more than four times higher than Q1 of 2011 and causing the company to forecast a total profit for 2012 of $1.2 billion.

    Chrysler Group profits quadruple in 2012 Q1 with $1.2 billion in revenue

    Normally,
    in traffic,what should one prefer in terms of clutch ,accelerator and brakes.

    1.Always keep clutch pressed with slotted gear(1st or 2 nd gear) and apply hand brakes or
    2.bring the gear to neutral and apply handbrakes.

    the item no1 made me to think about my laziness :D and always press clutch and change gears may be this reduces the life of clutch plates ? how much it affects the fuel efficiency?

    the item no2 :- i feel its the best ? but gives an early call for clutch plates and other mechanics invovled in ?

    Gurjinder, You mean carry those fluidic design theme. May be, but with over or 40 MPG demand for US customer with 150-200 HP base rating, manufacturer has to sacrifice some design ques for perfect aerodynamics. More & more cars will look alike in future with the importance of Aerodynamics in search of better FE rating.

    It's way way bigger than a Verna, As big and heavy as a CAMRY/ACCORD/A6:eek:. This car is just 1.5 inch shorter than a Ford Mustang:(. Now try to fathom it's looks with the help of pictures above:cool. Where front manages very good, the rear is one of the best looking of D segment cars i can think of:). Breath taking! Those Titanium black alloys size 18 inch which looks just OK & not over sized on this car. This car with 17 inch looks under tired.
    Absolutely a monster & what a looker at the price of a Corolla/Civic!

    Looks like a Verna. If launched in India, people will say that its a copied version of Verna. Damn ......
    People might even call Mini Cooper as a copied version of old Swift .....

    @ Ganges: In Hyderabad traffic, really very slow moving traffic, I drive 1st and 2nd (mostly) gears without sloting to neutral ever. I only slot to neutral when there is a complete stop and vehicles ahead of me are not moving for say about 30 secs.
    And whenever I am at a traffic signal and had to stop completely, then I slot the gear to neutral.
    I never use hand brakes in traffic. Its more of a parking brake and I use it only when I intend to park my vehicle.
