    2014 - The year that was for MyFiatWorld.com

    Dear Members,

    Wish you a very Happy and Prosperous New Year!!

    We hope that year 2015 brings positivity and good things for each one of our members. We wish the new year comes with better and exciting experiences on the forum as well. The past year was quite exciting in terms of the activities on the forum, be it contributions in the form of brilliant tech threads from our members, the various casual meets, the knowledge sharing sessions that took place, or even the unprecedented success of the official MyFiatWorld.com T-Shirts.

    In case you were away, here is a recap of what you missed in the year gone by:

    Casual Meets:


    1. The Mumbai - Pune meet was a grand success with its highlight being a quiz session on the history of FIAT and its products sold worldwide - http://myfiatworld.com/showthread.php?t=1438

    2. In 2013, the members of MyFiatWorld.com visited Ladakh. In 2014, the fabulous chill session in Goa saw members from various parts of the country attend this annual ritual. This was the second time that MyFiatWorld.com visited Goa after 2012 - http://myfiatworld.com/showthread.php?t=1533

    Knowledge Sharing Sessions:

    1. Jopasu products such as the duster and micro fiber cloth are well known, thanks to positive reviews by people who have used them. However, Jopasu Systems, Pune manufacture a lot more products and they obliged us with a meet at their plant in order to understand how their varied car care products help in maintaining our cars - http://myfiatworld.com/showthread.php?t=1501

    2. The suspension set up of the Fiats is a big draw for us Fiat enthusiasts and it is largely responsible for the fun-to-drive package in conjunction with the brilliant hydraulic steering setup. So in December 2014, Magneti Marelli Suspension Systems invited us to their plant at Chakan, Pune. Here is more on how this meet was planned - http://myfiatworld.com/showthread.php?t=1545
    The detailed meet report is now posted as you receive this email - http://myfiatworld.com/showthread.php?t=1573

    Official test drive reports:

    1. Fiat launched the refreshed Punto EVO with that very aggressive looking face and the Jaguar F type grille. The MyFiatWorld.com team drove the car extensively and followed that up with a drive report -http://myfiatworld.com/showthread.php?t=1448

    2. Hot on the heels of the Punto EVO, Fiat launched its crossover offering - the Avventura. While a drive report is to go on the forum soon enough, here are the detailed first impressions of the vehicle along with spec comparisons with itsrivals - http://myfiatworld.com/showthread.php?t=1520

    FIATian Inside, Our Official T-Shirt:

    We are FIATians at heart! So it was only appropriate that we wore our heart on our sleeves! After numerous brainstorming
    sessions, the first sample was made and it just blew us away in terms of its looks, feel and comfort. And you know what, we have just opened up the second round of orders for these t-shirts. More on these fabulous t-shirts - http://myfiatworld.com/showthread.php?t=1480

    Feature Enhancements on the forum:

    But it was not all smooth sailing on the forum. Our beloved forum faced crisis in terms of a malware attack, slowing downthe browsing experience on the forum considerably.

    However, the forum emerged stronger from this crisis with even more features than before! A new like and thanks button was implemented along with a host of small yet important enhancements - http://myfiatworld.com/showthread.php?t=1476

    One of our top priorities for 2015 is to ensure that we implement the Watermark plugin for all our members using the forum. This plugin will ensure that all the pictures uploaded by members is watermarked automatically with the forumsignature.

    2014 also saw a brand new section on the forum, the Incubator. The idea was to create a private section for members to post their ownership and test drive reports, travelogues, meet threads in complete privacy and once done, the complete thread would be moved on the open forum - http://myfiatworld.com/showthread.php?t=1478

    Apart from the above, members posted initial ownership reports of their newly acquired Fiats as well as tech queries and information, including the Avventura and an Alfa Romeo Guilietta! Ours is a lifestyle forum that does not discuss cars at all times. There is a life beyond cars and our buzzing Off Topics section is a testimony that very fact. Take this thread about movies for example - http://myfiatworld.com/showthread.php?t=64&page=3&p=12205#post12205
    To explore more on the action happening in the forum, check out these awesome threads for yourself.

    We hope that 2015 is the year that helps www.myfiatworld.com achieve bigger things, but it is a collaborative effort. Every single member contributes to make this a thriving and wonderful community of passionate FIATians.

    If you have been away, we hope to see you around on the forum. And please do pitch in with your ideas to improve the forum in the dedicated section - Bouquets and Brickbats.

    Please use the following email id for redressal of any queries / issues : contact@myfiatworld.com
    Alternatively, you could PM the Marshals as well.

    It was a great year for us and equally a challenging one too but we held on with heads high and with a positive attitude. Met new faces and some old ones too since our PUG days. Most importantly with a plethora of fiat forums around, we are still a thriving group and we will continue to be.

    Cheers to all MFWians
