Congrats Sagar, your one lucky fella to buy yourself the latest fling in the market. And, the color is also perfect. Nothing to beat the electric red..eh?

Enjoy and drive safe !

Congrats on the Punto! Looks amazing in red! Those pics are really good. How did you manage to take the first pic in which the car is running?

Congratulations buddy!!
Red is the best choice one can make (esp. if he is from team-bhp)
And yeah! how did you manage the first pic??!!!

@all, with sagar's photography in mind, I consider those pics as teaser pics. I am eagerly waiting for the actual lot of pics.

Common sagar, now that I have hyped up your image, you got to put some amazing pics. You know, brochure type of pics and all....

I think your punto has run the maximum on the forum, pls give us a detailed report, and some FE figures too.

IMO,High End models are little bit weird in Silver finish.
Just paint the OVRM cowl in body color.it increases appearance.
Even I feel the black grill looks much better than the silver one. I did mention the FE I am getting in my previous posts. Detailed review will be up soon. Will be painting the ORVM and door handles into body colour soon.

Haha, the pics are coming up soon.

@all : The first pic was shot by my friend. He popped the camera out of the passenger window and took the snap. The credit for that image alone goes to him.

There are very few people in this world who put their money where the mouth is... congrats for owning the beauty. I can only imagine how good the ride quality would be in the Active variant given that it was very very impressive in the top end variant with wider and lower profile tyres.

Congrats furious, don't get too furious with your car now.

It's raining fiats on Team-BHP. Wonder how a Fiat Vs Baleno thread would fare now.

Congrats,
The PROS and CONS are nicely listed out.
Also the photographs are like a true professional photographer, red Punto takes breath away, it is so good and the paint finish is brilliant.

Enjoy and BE BOLD

Wheel caps look cool.
Whether it came with car or after market fitment.

Congrats on the car and lovely pictures. You certainly have an eye for beauty.

Can you please post some interior pics, as I want to see how the dash without the stock audio system, ACC and the silver console.

A detailed review is awaited since you have almost completed run-in by now.
