heheheee, well done!! thats the kind of pictures I was expecting from you!!!

BTW, is it my monitor problem or some picture compression issues while uploading / reducing the pic size, I see imperfections in the paint of the car.

Those pix are simply awesome! especially the ones near the railway track and the church. pls upload a higher res pic too.

P.S: the wheelcaps on this variant look waay better than the one on the emotion!

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.


Thanx for the clarification i was guessing so looking at the cost difference but the confidence of the sales fellow at the dealership created a doubt in my mind.

Dosent this make you wish the Indian version of the Punto came with ecoDrive. It would be so helpful in extracting the best FE from the car. Really wonder why its not supported in India.

Maybe you could download the application and give it a try. I know for a fact it does not work with the linea.

No problemo Glad you liked them.

I am assuming that GP has a flexible 3, akin to Linea. In that case, you can just go along in 3 starting from 25-30 kph.

something in the same lines as this car here
this is the same color of the Palio S10 right?

If you like to have coloured ORVMs you can always get it done from local painter for a cheap rate. It will only add to looks.

How are the stock Punto headlights? Are they bright enough to do some night driving? Any idea on its ratings?

Am interested in knowing this too.
Also do we get this yellow color in Indian Punto as well and if not any possibilities in future?
It looks hot no doubt!

Afaik, there is no yellow and I dont see it coming any time soon either. Regarding the lighting during night times, I find it adequate. Infact I was thinking of putting Xenon HID kit but backed out now. The stock headlights are quite bright, especially the high beam.

Does the broucher have any rating written on it? If its similar to the Fiesta high beam, then its certainly more than adequate.
