You could get the door handles and ORVMs painted from the dealer itself where you bought the car.You would get a exact paint match at the dealers.

What?! That's crazy, stupid and unbelievable! What if someone has an accident and needs to get new mirrors or doors? If the dealer isn't going to do these things then who will?! I think you should write to Fiat about this.

I am meeting the manager today will try to find out, may be they would have started it by now.

About the refinement in your MJD, did you follow any particular running in routine?

Hmmm my petrol 1.2 active punto which has run around 2800 kms gives me an average of aound 9-10 in city.Will this go up or is ten the average for the petrol version.I had read some post where the owner had said he was getting close to 13 i guess.

I think millage may increase to 11-13 after some more running.
As your driving style would also adapt to the car.
