Talking Exchanged Swift with Grande Punto EDIT: 15000 kms update

Feeling so good ,teambhp is back.

After test driving the punto several times last week i decided this is the car i should be driving car rather than my 2008 Swift VDi abs,after two days of negotiation ABS motors gurgaon offered me a good deal and i gave them my Swift and bought a Red Grande Punto emotion pack,as the pdi of the car was pending ill get the car tomorrow morning.

Reasons i bought the Punto for my Swift-

1.Looks and Character.
2.Ride and handling
3.Sturdy feel

Ill post the detailed story and Swift VDi goodbye report tomorrow.

BTW i cant stop dreaming about my sexy Red Punto.

Congrats.....
Great and brave decision to swap full loaded Swift with Punto...
as lots of debate on Punto's Power delivery or power to weight ratio...
It has to be straight from heart decision.
Congrats and enjoy the Ride.

Congratulaions Anshuman, eagerly await your report.

2008 swift swapped, punto must have highly impressed you like Linea did to me.

Congrats and welcome to fiat club, at the pace Punto threads are being opened just a few days away that a punto club will be made too

It rained Lineas on team bhp and seems its a bombardment of Puntos with so many threads opened within 10 days of a cars launch. Please post loads of pics, am also going to ABS for servicing my Linea on thu or fri.
Will check out punto there while i get my car serviced. Red looks smashing, the gloss on it is amazing.

Congrats again.

Me too!! How much did you get for your 08 VDI with ABS? How many Kms had it clocked?

Very daring and brave decision indeed to give away 2008 Swift VDI. I could have digested better if you had bought the Punto as an addition to the Swift as it was too new and too popular to be given away

Also imagine he must have waited maybe 3-4 months for the swift delivery AND now letting it go!
