Who needs bumpers and rear power windows when the Stock speaker locations in Figo is something no ICE freak should miss out on.

Has Fiat stopped giving free 50 month Roadside Assistance package?
Till August, Fiat was offering this 50 month 24x7 Roadside Assistance package as well.

@Manish7- There is no noticeable performance change in BS-3 vs BS-4 Punto.

Congrats Magnan. Bossa Nova White Looks awesome. Also, I see a blue Punto in the background of first pic? Has Fiat launched new colors as well?
It doesn't look like Electric Blue Punto (it had been discontinued earlier).

Also, can I copy your pic for our other Team Fiat India forum? It can be a hot topic for discussion regarding this Blue color Punto visible in the background if you don't mind?

You mean you're getting 90BHP in 7.45L OTR? Is that after discount or before discount?

@Manish7- I think he is getting the 76hp variant, not the 90hp one (based on the VIN No. he posted in Wildon's thread)

It sure produces noise at that speeds. But I don't see any other car in your list that is noiseless. It produces noise but not upto a level that irritates me atleast.

My car is a petrol one. mileage is around 17kmpl city with AC AFAIK. you can PM a fellow bhpian "MCR". he has Punto MJD from Nov-09.

Go with what your heart beats for.

congrats on the new punto!

This pic is baffling me. Is that blue punto the old electric blue shade or a new one? and that vista with alloys? is it the new 1.4 safire? can you confirm once you visit the stockyard again?

@SidIndica- This is a Punto (101.5% sure). This is the same Electric Blue Punto (Amogh has confirmed the same). Some members have reportedly seen new Electric Blue Puntos at some dealerships but there is no news from Fiat regarding re introduction of this color.

Congratulation Magnan on your Fiat Grande Punto

Please do start an ownership report once you get the keys in hand.

It is a discontinued 'Electric Blue' Fiat Punto. Moreover, Fiat has not introduced any new shades for Fiat Punto expect the Tuscan Wine and Fox Trut Azure..

Sure go ahead and copy the Pic dude, Moreover yeah visited that car as well but didnt take a pic :P as i dont want to turn mind on that blue as well. it looked as a Electric dark blue, some times ago called the Robin blue from long distance but after going near i could notice that it really got faded. its blue color for sure.

I finally booked my MJD 90BHP Punto from Pandit yesterday. How and when will I receive the VIN number. I have that sales executive give me a tentative number when he confirmed with Fiat (and yes, it end with KNZ = Oct manufactured!! :-)), but I just want some official communication - don't know when can I receive it. Dealer is in a very tentative "we'll have to see" mode, so can't get it from him. Any pointers?
