    @joeswatmail,After returning from duty I found you(logged in) in the forum(in between 2pm & 3pm).Thought of asking about the delivery but restrained myself coz the 100th post was awaited.And I exactly expected this---pic of the car in the 100th post.
    I won't congrat, as you deserve much more than that.My respect to jewel of a gentleman and his ocean like patience.
    A gem of a car for gem of a person.

    Thanks guys...
    @sandipan_r15, thanks especially for not posting the 100th post.... Great men think alike (hence proved)
    At the showroom, I bought a veg puff for all the 33 workers there and a sweet box for the SA...
    PDI and test drive took a total of 2 hours and 30 minutes ... SA was very patient and helpful. Great demo, the SA was pretty knowledgeable. Felt a little bit of left pulling on the drive. SA said it was due to over inflated tires... And he was right... Sorted it out, and pulling issue was solved.
    Since they gave me the interest amount of 9.5K, they were hesitate to gime me any more free perks.
    Then after a few negotiation, got floor mats and mud guard.
    Sorted the paper work. Took delivery after a little puja (though we don't do it, I did not want to interfere with cultural customs)
    Was happy to hear 2 things,
    1. Only 2 gold EVOs have been sold by them. One is in cuddalore and one (MoJo) in pondicherry.
    2. I am the only customer who came alone and took delivery of the car till date.
    Coming to think of it, the second thing is not that happy. Due to unavoidable official work, my dad and mom weren't able to come, my wife cant travel with the baby that's almost ready to be delivered .
    When I told my dad "I will take delivery of the car tomorrow when u r free..."

    My dad said with a smile, "why do you need me for that? Its time for u to step up, u r gonna be a dad, and u don't need this dad watching over u anymore... Do you?"
    Off, i went and after taking delivery from the showroom, I went to pick up my parents from work.
    Their colleagues were stunned by its sheer beauty and I was happy to see my dad getting in the car with pride and a little smug on his face...
    We went to church to get the car blessed, and went to have ice cream at the beach.
    A person driving white Evo in beach, coming the otherway, pointed at my MoJo and smiled...
    What a day...
    That was a day to remember...
    Sorry for the poor pics...

    Like @Bala said congrats on all fronts. Just one suggestion, the beauty looks so worth preserving, buy a cover in case you haven't yet. :)

    Request Mods to finally edit thread title. @joeswatmail please suggest one.

    Thanks @pdash, @Bala, @asimpleson
    I am not able to change the title of this thread. If I could, it will be "it was worth the wait....."
    Or am ok with locking this thread.
    I will start my ownership thread in a couple of weeks...
    Again... Thank you all... U r a Boon to Fiat and its Fans...
