Amby to Fiat?seems like a scene right out of 70s and 80s Congrats buddy..may you have many happy miles in the car. The writeup of the pre-delivery experience was so damn good. I mean, it was like all the excitement and impatience in us on the delivery date

Congrats on the Bold move!

Amby to Punto is a huge step up indeed and am sure you must be grinning every time you take the wheel. Gorgeous color and superb looking car it is also. I am glad you took the Emo Pk, it pretty much gives you everything you'd want in a car.

Default Thanks folks

Time to post my first few days of attention grabbing experience :

Things I hate :
1.Some extremely irresponsible citizen decided to park his 2-wheeler soo close that he managed to leave a mark of his existence on my front bumper. However, thanks heavens, the mark is exactly where the future Regn plate would house.

2.Even worse. Had some issues with parking space so had to park her below a under-construction house next door. Today morning, the construction folks decided to water the roof. The jet of water dislodged a decent sized pebble which was soo very attracted to my baby's roof. So now, I have a miniscule dent on the roof :( which I have all intentions of getting fixed during my first service.

Things I love:
1.After some time of getting used to the multijet mill, she returns 14kmpl in city with major 1-2-3-1 and no 4-5. Expecting it to improve with time and my driving skills.
Its just that I'm already addicted to the 2k+ boost which pushes u back to your seat.

2.Do I love the steering controls or what! I cant stop playing with them. Call people up from the steering pad and talk away to glory.

3.ACC is chilling and fast!

4.GC is worth a mention. On sunday, i was ambling around Lavelle Road(Bangaloreans would know) near CCD. The road was well dug up.However, there was hardly a 'thud' even when I went pretty fast on that piece of road.

5.And of course I'm loving all the attention. Now all that the car needs is a lemon and couple of chilli stalks.

Please dont ask me to find faults, I'm too deep in love

Congrats man! Wishing you and your new baby many happy miles together. Am getting my red baby tomorrow, can hardly wait! Initially I was fixed on going for Med grey itself but here in hyd, that colour would take atleast 20 days more, so I had to go for red. Looks stunning in medium grey! Have fun.
