Congrats ! Is it a 2015 make or 2016? I got mine around 10.80 OTR with self insurance and self registration but that was for a 2015 make car. Also what's the rate of tax in your place ?

It's a 2016 make without the touch screen and navigation. The tax was 12% because the ex showroom price for the model without touch is still 9.95. My father opted to get it insured by ourselves so that's around 20k approx. I'm not sure though about the exact insurance cost.

Default Re: From Grande Punto to the Abarth Punto

Hey Kanad !! On the onset, my heartiest Congratulations to you on buying the Fiat Punto Abarth which is a dream for many, including me. A very comprehensively written thread which by all means deserves a well deserved 5* with no questions asked as it will work as a bible for many who aspire to buy the Fiat Punto Abarth in the times to come.

I happened to visit one of the FIAT dealers here in Kolkata and was opportune enough to photograph my car along side the Punto Abarth. Sharing the picture (though might be irrelevant) considering the colours on both the cars were matching :

Hope we can click the pictures of our cars together someday in an All India Team-BHP Meet

Please do keep the thread updated and if possible share a Dash Cam (YouTube) Video of the Abarth biting the road with that patented engine roaring away to glory, so that we can see some action. Wishing you endless munching miles with this Italian Beauty !!

Default A small update

The Abarth did a small trip to Kolhapur, Panhala and Miraj. Unfortunately I couldn't go. Dad and Mom took her. Dad drove solo for the entire trip. Except for one small moment, the entire trip was perfect.

On the way to Miraj from Kolhapur, on the narrow highway, someone came in the way and dad had to brake suddenly from highway speeds to a standstill. Abarth didn't lose her composure and came to a stop well before the obstruction without any fuss. But a biker following a bit too closely couldn't brake in time and banged into her on the left hand side. Expecting much damage, dad came out to see and was surprised to find out only a small scratch of the rear panel, just below the tail light. The biker had some minor injuries.

Attaching some Mid shots. Not to mention the fuel consumption of the car on highways is superb.

Glad to have been invited for the trip!
Was truly awestruck after driving it also in the process changing my opinions about Fiat!
