    A few queries:
    - which colour have you booked
    - what is the month of manufacture of the vehicle

    This month there are very attractive schemes so ideally you should take the delivery this month itself as it will save you a lot. As far as I know almost all colours are readily available with Fiat with May 2011 manufacturing

    For the TJet, please avoid comfort oreinted tyres. Tolerate a bit of noise for the extra grip, performance tyres will give you :).

    I have booked Hip Hop Black. The dealer has ordered the car today and it will take 7-10 days to reach him. I will be able to check the month of manufacture only when the car reaches the stock yard.

    Yes, I'm planning to take delivery (or at least invoice the car) by this month end as the current slew of offers / discounts is applicable till Sep 30. Because of shraddh, I cannot take delivery for the next 15 days.

    Is FIAT rolling out TJets later than May '11 date?

    currently black color available is May manufactured. I had a chance to see the stock list and hence confirming the same

    I don't believe this. If the dealer has placed the order, they should have got the VIN immediately. No need to wait till the car arrives the stock yard.

    So is that going to be a negative point? What's the accepted manufacturing date if I'm taking delivery in Sep end?

    not exactly a negative point but yes when u r paying so much then one does prefer the latest manufacturing date and it can be 1 month or 2 old depending upon the state. at times cars with even the latest dates are found in not the most pristine conditions

    You should do a very thorough PDI if its a May manufactured vehicle. As ramjn mentioned, you should have the VIN number with you before the car arrives at the stockyard

    Thanks for your inputs guys. I did not know that VIN number is immediately available when the order is placed. I will check with the dealer (Concorde Motors, Prabhadevi) tomorrow itself.

    So here are the tyre options:

    What's the best option in 205/55/16? Priority order is
    Comfort>Grip (incl. wet braking)>Low road noise

    1. Michelin Primacy LC - Rs 8950 per tyre
    2. Bridgestone Turanza ER60 - Rs 8100 per tyre
    3. Bridgestone Potenza GIII - forgot to ask the price :eek:

    Buy back of Goodyear NCT5 - Rs 5500 per tyre.

    Any other *comparable* brand that I'm missing out on?
