Wishing you many more superb miles on the red hot punto. Keep those lovely pics coming
My pleasure mate. Many more B&W pics lined up. Ok just a few, all the pics will be up in an hour.

Today I was driving in very heavy rain and had my parking lights and hazard lights on. But I could not turn the rear fog light on. It can be turned on ONLY when the headlights are on. Kind of crappy in my opinion considering that I wanted them to be on when they are very vital and the damn thing doesnt turn on just because the headlamps arent.

Guys, I have a few small niggles now that need to be rectified.

1. The rear left passenger window is rattling.
2. The power/cig lighter socket beside the gearknob is bigger than the ones on other cars. I had to put a tissue paper to connect my car charger and keep it in place.
3. There is a small rotating piece of plastic on the gear rod, just below the knob. Is it of any use? Its quite irritating when it simply moves up and down and rotates.
4. The ac vents provided for the footwells on both the sides isnt the same. The driver's side gets more ac compared to the passengers. The placing of the duct is not accurate.
5. Engine is quite noisy on the outside.

Today I got a FE of 12.6kmpl. 20% highway, 10% offroad, and 70% city.

dude you would make a good photographer for sure, I being a VisCom graduate telling you that. If given a little photoshop work, these pictures could turn in to beautiful arts.
