Default Here is the deal

Ok guys here is the deal-

My Swift VDi ABS was april 2008 model,mileage was 28k,had 16inch alloys and a pioneer usb headunit+jbl speakers(components and ovals).Condition was good.

They gave me 4.65lakhs for my car+they let me remove my ICE(worth 15K)+they gave me ready delivery of Punto.

Though the deal was not that easy,it costed me almost 2days i spent negotiating.

I got my insurance done from some independent agent,got more than Rs.2k discount on the same and ill get the car registered myself in chandigarh as it did cost just 2100bucks to me to get the Swift registered last year so the final OTR Price for me is around 6.30lacs including regn. and insurance,hope it was a good deal.

Anshuman bhai,

That is an awesome awesome deal for a brand new just launched car!! Even better considering you're getting insurance/regn done outside

Same mess here man! I will be taking delivery of my baby on Wednesday and I have warned my sales guy that he is going with me if the manuals don't arrive till then. I am told he has been following up with the Pune guys ever since.

Wish you happy times with your Punto! I must say you got a great deal there.

Anshuman red punto aghhh, i sometimes feel i should have waited for punto before buying my Linea, just because of the color shades available in punto, its breathtaking.

Regarding multifunction displays, dont worry Linea owners here including me will suffice you until you get your owners manual.
Just a small tip,
There is a TRIP button on your right hand side stalk (the wiper one), keep pressing it and you will cycle through AVG SPEED, AVG CONSUMPTION, TRIP DISTANCE etc. If you keep the TRIP button pressed for a few seconds all TRIP A or TRIP B details will be reset after you get tankful done do reset trip meters.

Also AVG CONSUMPTION may be in L/100 km , thats inconvenient and change it to KM/L. Press MENU after closing all doors, cycle through all options using +/- buttons and then you have options of - PAS AIRBAG, UNITS (all units are here change acc to your wish), SPEED ALARM, SERVICE REMINDER etc etc.

If any problem feel free to ask, Punto is also loaded will so many gizmos make full use of it.

For BLU n ME, am not sure but you press the PHONE sign on steering and then select option of SETTINGS, select PAIR PHONE and after pairing and entering pass codes it will copy your phone book, you are ready to go

Congrats mate!!

Still havent driven the Punto.. loooooooongggg waiting for test drive.. anyways..any specific reason for the change.. since the swift was almost brand new..were you not satisfied with the car??..whats the difference in driving terms in these car..as both have Fiat 1.3liter multijet engine and moreover the swift has a VGT.. is Punto sluggish to drive as compared to the VDI.

I have driven VDI and its fun to drive..
