  1. Even the bond car will have a 4 door version known as "RAPIDE"!!!!!!
  2. palio awesome car but bad after sales service so if you want good after sales service go for ford ,but if you can put up with avg service offered to fiat palio by tata dealers you can go for it as , its got the build quality , good fuel economy and pretty decent performance !!!!!!!! i have a fiat palio you can check out this post for pics and more !!!!!!!! the performance is not that bad as few people tell that becoz swift got electronic power steering so it feel light and easy for city driving and the swift is little lighter than palio !!!!!!! decide for your self Italian stile (FIAT)(proof see below)or American econo car (ikon)
  3. i forgot to add that alloys would make it look it more cooler!! Thanx man still searching for alloys that look awesome on this car !!!!!! But how much should i spend on a good set of alloys ????????!!!!! Any idea any one ????!!!!!!!!!! murlimonstar2008-11-06 16:13:50
  4. which is the other bike tat Suzuki is launching before this year ends !!!!!!! any idea any one ???????!!!!!!!!
  5. Thank you all for your congrats !!!!!! Today sent the car for first service !!!! Still problems from the the showroom guys only one or two mechanics have been trained to work on the car so getting it tomorrow only !!!!!! My innova only takes just half a day to be serviced and returned to me by Toyota !!!!!!! This is why fiat is not doing well in India coz of bad service partner in tata motors, who still have to improve lots in terms of sales & service offered to fiat vehicles now only its so horrible with just one fiat model to sell think wat will happen when next year punto and linea are launched god save fiat !!!!!!! Seriously fiat should consider their own showrooms atleast in the metros for them to keep their customers happy or else they would have to shut shop here if they depend only on tata as of now !!!! Tata's atleast should be ashamed of them selves for such bad service offered to fiat cars when their own cars are running on technology given to them by fiat (the new indica vista running on fiat sourced multijet diesel and safire petrol engines ) !!!!! I think fiat is getting a raw deal in india by the tata motors !!!!!!
  6. actually its a tough one to answer !!!!! I love the brand FIAT and i like the palio's clean lines and minimalistic design and, the engine is award winning one so then, the interiors are old but well built and, space inside is good !!!!!!! So all things considered , I will recommend this car to everyone who wants a diesel hatch in tat 4-5 lac range !!!!!!!
  7. i was reading this months edition of autocar India where there was an article stating that apollo tyres were launching a new brand of alloys named accelere the pic on pg 19 of the alloys was really awesome !!!!!!!! should i go for alloys only or go for really wide tyres that look really awesome !!!!! ill have a look at the site thanks man vibor !!!!!
  8. It is true to some extent the showroom guys have a certain reluctance in showing you around the Fiat as compared to indica but there is no forcing you thing involved in it they just try to project indica as a better car when compared to palio !!!!!!! but we had already owned a tata indigo some time back so we knew tat tata vehicles are not even come close to the fiat in terms of reliability and the interiors of tata don't feel like they'll last for long !!!!!!! i like the fiat look better than the indica !!!!!!
  9. no budget set as of now !!!!!!!! but only thing looking for now is which brand will offer some kind of good warranty or something and which is the best brand available now !!!!!!!!
  10. sorry for this mess of pics i usually don't post pics so I'm really bad at posting pics !!!!!!!!
  11. Sorry for the late pics but was busy with Diwali celebrations The car [img=">[img=">
  12. bangalore also they started deliveries only 2 days back!!!!! so may be you might get your bike tomorrow !!!!!!!! but plz some one post the top speed of the bike plzzzzzzzzzz !!!!!!!!
  13. twin shocks are good only when they that nitrox suspension(don't know the exact name of that suspension!!!) kind tat on offer in the pulsars !!!!!!! for driving on bad roads and comfort the mono shocks tend to be a lot springy in action which i don't like, but the twins like the pulsar kind are so much better to ride on rough which dont throw you of your seat that easily !!!!
  14. sorry for the bad pic as weather in B'lore was bad !!!! ill get back with more better pics and some kind of review as the traffic was bad today and didnt get to drive faster than 20kph in this horrible traffic !!!!!!!!
  15. Hi every one my bro and family decided on fiat and booked the car and taking delivery on 24th this month !!!!!!!! but as there was no other option becoz there was no new car coming and only good car swift was a long wait so went with the palio !!!!!!!! (my bro didn't like the vista !!!!!!!) but at the end of day fiat palio is a pretty decent car and we booked it in white color will post pics after i get the car !!!!!!!!!! but thank you all for your suggestions and info on which car to go for but regrets that couldn't buy a car that was suggested by you !!!!!!! see you all when i post pics of my palio !!!!!!!!!
  16. Is any diesel hatch going to be launched during Diwali or at least by early November ??????? like the i20 or Chevy U-VA or punto ???????? plz got to buy a car this Diwali coz don't likes WATS available now and swifts got a long waitin period !!!!!!!
  17. try may be the apache rtr one they look pretty decent when compared to the fz mirrors !!!!!!!!! AND one more thing if anyone get hold of the bike plz post a good review about the bike , coz waitin for new year to buy the bike after a complete review of the bike and wat is its true on road capabilities are !!!!!!!!!!!!
  18. ya tats it i think now tat honda india got the feel of the country they may restrict hero honda to rural markets or may even end their technical collaboration with hero group in near future and go on alone in the two weeler segment like their four wheeler biz here !!!!!!!!
  19. my brother liked the maruti suzuki swift vdi abs version and he went in to a maruti show room and booked one 4 months back !!!!!!! but when he went to take delivery of his car (this was just before his birthday so he was all excited about his own car after driving my dads cars for all these years ) the show room guys tell him that he cant get abs version of the then when they show him the car its a black coloured car when we had booked a white colored car !!!!! so we ask the showroom guys to get us the car booked by us a white vdi version of swift even without abs atleast by my bro's birthday 15 days from then , they tell us ok we'll get it !!!!!!! when we go to pick this car they tell us tat if you wait for 2 more months we'll get abs version but by now we just wanted normal car for his birthday and ask them to deliver just the normal car as we told them last time, they tell us that they will get new cars delivery from maruti only next week so my bro with is birthday ruined cancels the booking !!!!!!!! this just to show tat all not well with maruti and tats one of the many reasons i will never like to buy a maruti for !!!!!!!! this is just one my many of bad experiences with maruti suzuki only diff with this bad experience is it was even before i brought a car from maruti!!!!!!!
  20. its just that maruti suzuki stands for low cost of running cars which are built to a certain price where the main focus of the manufacturer has been not build quality so they can be priced some wat lesser than the competition !!!!!!!!! so some us might like a quality product like the other japs or the europeans cars but the point is every manufacturer have some positives and some negatives and for maruti suzuki its always been their great after sales and service network which has been thier positives and they have just built on it till all these years !!!!!!! thats the reason they have taken soooo long to get cars in the higher end of the spectrum where a person whos buying a car is more concerned about the quality of it and will pay a premium for it if he is getting a better car from anyone other than maruti , so the maruti brand stand for small cheap to run cars and we cant expect them to change this image since they are soo good at it, i would rather buy any other brand of car now than a maruti coz they are not up to the mark on quality and their dealers are not the best people to buy a car from !!!!!!
