I have a feeling that the good long drive will make all your earlier disappointments go out of window. She is that good on highways
Enjoy her to the fullest now !!

Congrats Amogh for getting your beauty home. I can understand the way you must be feeling after all the drama you've been going through.
Enjoy your ride to the fullest and don't forget to upload pics.

Finally I can expect to see a Punto in Pune...
Do take good care of her and let us know your experiences. I really hope all the bad part is over and you have a great time with her.
PS: Pics please.

Yes the new car is blue again
Guys .. sorry about the pics .. I was actually planning to take the car to some hill or to Lonavla (Amby Valley) to click some decent pics. But the weather is just not being kind to me
The car is awesome though !!! I am not going to talk about the handling, ride quality etc since a lot has already been said and written about it. And yeah .. the car DOES make a lot of heads turn on the road. I am going to enjoy the attention till it lasts.
One of my very close friends got married on Sunday and I had parked the car right at the marriage hall entrance. At one point of time, the car was completely surrounded by curious onlookers. I was quite enjoying that scene !!
Some turn offs for me are the poor quality speakers and the large turning radius. I see myself replacing the speakers with JBL speakers pretty soon. Unfortunately, I cannot change the music system since I will then be losing Blue & Me. But the speakers are definitely going out.
A lot has been already discussed about the rear seat leg space. Here is my real experience over a 50 km drive.
My brother in law who is 5'10" was in the co-driver seat. My dad who is 6' was sitting behind him. My brother in law had his legs nicely stretched out and even then my dad had an extremely comfortable seating position and he felt absolutely no discomfort.
More to follow .... (with pics)
