From what I know all 90 HP engines that were manufactured March '15 onwards have this timing change update. Its just that it got updated on the manual recently.

So, all the 90HP multijet engines manufactured in Punto evos post June 2016 batches (with "powertech" badging) now see the timing chain change at 90,000 kms compared to early 60,000 kms. I cross checked with an owners manual of 2014-2016 Punto Evo series for the "sport" variant and that has a 60,000 kms interval.
Just curious to know , how much did you get for the red beluga and how much did you have to pay for the new steed .

Just wanted to understand the math behind teh deal . If its interesting I'll also go ahead with a switch .

I have done close to 1000 kms in this now.

Just a sneak preview:
-The driveability is miles better than any VGT Punto ever I drove. Turbo spools from 1800 rpm, but torque delivery is more linear. Its a far easy car to live with in city.
-First gear remains short, second is a bit taller. Easy to potter around again in city.
-Third gear is more punchier, though its no Polo 1.5. That car has violent pull.
-All the traits my old red Punto had are carried over.
-Stereo has GPS, navigation, navigation dashboard, two SD card slots, USB, Aux and bluetooth voice connect and streaming. The Voice command option is discontinued. No CD player either.
-ICE speaker quality is now tolerable, though I will upgrade my ICE setup sometime later.
-More? Once I clock up kilometres. Christmas special review, of course.
Till then, Ciao.

Am I loving it? Of course, yes. And a silent engine is another plus.
