You could try some stills with the sunset in the backdrop of a football ground or some place veyr empty, that would make a very good profile picture of your First love Punto

Hi Hillram,

I haven't checked if someone has imparted an 'FYI' to you on the 3rd statement above, but let me do so. The golden &red/other colors sash, as you have put within braces, is indeed a holy sash. It's wrapped around/tied to a preferred part of any vehicle, for it to be blessed and ply safely on the roads [this 'sash' for ex: comes from the fame'd Mahalakshmi temple in Mumbai and several other temples across India], akin to an idol of any diety being placed on dash/console.

Doing the above does not 'spoil' the car in any way, Indian or not. Neither is it shameful. There isn't any offense taken on your statement above, but wanted to share this with you. Unless you're already aware and were merely kidding around.

Dude you ve got a real good instinct for photography man. Loved each n every pic in your post. Sorry cant stop stealing some pics off your thread.

And cheers to you for owning a real nice car to run around anywhere anytime with real low cost due to diesel. You will definitely love it driving around. When i bought my Swift DDiS, i did 33000 kms in the first 7 months. You ll love the economy of the diesel engine. Now that we share the same hearts in our cars

Airbags and Auto AC are available in Emotion too. Please clarify.
AAC and Airbags are available in only Emotion pack. Emotion does not come with them. To solve all your doubts, why dont you just walk to the showroom and pick up the brochure? It contains all the details. You can educate those brainless dealer people about what products they are selling. Will be fun to watch their expressions then.

Sounds dreamy! Find me a nice green patched football ground or buy me and my punto free tickets somewhere abroad and I will happily carry my camera along

Sadly I think I pushed my baby a little too much. I decided to be a little gentle on her from now. 2-2.5k rpm shifts. Thanks to the tata buggers who told no **** about running in or did they provide a damn manual.

This car will look equally stunning in yellow as it does in red. Fiat probably intends that color as a "refresh" when the time comes for a cosmetic upgrade.

No I am just a hobby photography trying to get into it preofessionally but no luck sadly.

Guys, I drove as SEDATELY as sedate can be today. Did all gear shifts at ~1.8k rpm and my final FE of the day is 18.2kmpl. Great in my opinion. Traveled about 100kms in bumper to bumper traffic and on the outer ring road too.
