That's odd. I can see all the attachments at my end. Maybe you need to log in back and then it may show?
Always welcome Amit Bhai, Pleasure was mine

Best of luck to you , keep all of us updated with your experiences with the beauty.

Cheers,
Sanjeev

The manual's haven't arrived and since it was a Sunday the salesstaff doing the delivery said he isn't well versed with the 'My Car' and Blue&Me features so I have a couple of questions:

- The Blue&Me doesn't pair automatically. Each time I have to manually do it by entering the PIN. I submitted 'Yes' the first time I paired the system and my phone asked if I wanted to connect automatically to Blue&Me.

- How do I check and activate the coming home lights function?

- The instant consumption of trip B shows ----- k/l. How do I activate it? When I got the car it was showing in L/100kms but somehow I can't get the km/L display to show.

The rest as and when I keep doing the R&D and find out more .

Sanjeev is Spot On. I was telling the same thing to my Daughter last week that my Linea's (& hence Punto's) front look like Zoozoo's when Zoozoo is grinning.. like this

Yes. When I checked sitting in Punto, I felt Punto's front seats are softer than Linea & hugs you in position better than Linea's

-- My phone got paired the first time. The car gave a pin and then I had to pair my car to my phone.And thats all. BTW, which phone are you using? That might cause some issues. Mine is a SE.

-- Once you stop the car, hit the light button(tug it to put it on high beam), lock the car and walk away. The follow me home will be activated.
Each pull is equal to 30 secs. Total max duration is 210secs.

-- Dont know either. Me waiting for the manuals too.


Congratz and welcome to the GP club
Excellent hot beauty. My stupid city traffic doesnt allow me to cross 14-15kmpl at any time(with ACC on all time). However,as soon as I hit the highway, the figure crosses 20 kmpl mark easily.

Congrats Amit. There seems to be sudden increase in Red Punto's on TBHP. It is a wonderful car and the right color too.

What you did was correct. However, if still not solved, delete user data in the car (using B&M Menu on the steering, press SRC/OK). Delete the pairing profile in your mobile. Both these done, re-pair your cell with B&M, it'll generate PIN again while pairing.

Acquelo has mentioned above.
Pull the left-side light stalk (on sterring) towards upwards (it works even when the lights are off, If I remember correctly) & walk off. Each single Pull will keep lights on for 20 or 30 seconds.

On dash, on right-hand-side of steering, there is a button "Menu". Press it to navigate. It has settings options for different parameters.

Pairing with my phone is really smooth every time. The only issue is I have to do it manually each time. Also, I see two Blue&Me's in my phone's pairing list...

My phone is a Nokia E66.

I'll do that in the evening and revert.

How many kms have you done? I can't wait to see 20kmpl in the MID.

Hey amit, hope you've got your queries answered. I have the manual so if there's anything you need to know do ask.
Btw you reset the average consumption by keeping the button the right stick pressed.
You'll get 20 pretty easily, am already getting 18.5 in the city and my car's only done 200km.

Yeah, that (2 pairing profiles) seems to be the issue. Delete both pairing profile from the cell & also delete all user data from B&M. Re-pairing again should work.
