Enjoy your excellent ride with excellent machine.
dude,you are wrong on this..
Fiat has indeed a tie with GM which in turn has tie up with suzuki and the latter got rights from FIAT to manufacture the multijet engine in its own plant under the name DDiS .

Here is the pic of my black Punto MJD E-pack (already completed 1700 kms). Sorry, too lazy to post an ownership thread. On the To-Do list for sure.

PS: Apologies smilenow for hijacking your thread.

nkapoor, if black could be called ravishing drool maal, this is it! I saw the black one first at the launching ceremony of Punto and the black one implored you to choose it. Congrats on your acquisition.

Good Choice dude for the Given Price its a Good package . the colour is also a normal one not too flashy like the Red one.

have you got the underbody anti rust coatings done? it would be a good idea.

any plans for a tuning box?
for the 1.3 additional horses are kind of needed if you really need to exploit the chassis and the suspension package! which is a really good one.

Pete's is in the pipeline,eta is about 3-4 months.

@nkapoor,the car looks brilliant in black.

A couple of questions,
Anyone know any dealer who installs 3m films?
And the car is making a "thud" noise anytime i bring to a full stop or after reversing and stopping,any guesses?

And god damn this turning radius,its a pain in the neck,it will lead me to having a cervical in no time.

Hi Nitin,

Fiat GP in Black is looking awesome. Kindly post more pics of interiors/exteriors of your black beauty and please start a new thread about your ownership experience. Do you find it difficult to maintain a black machine? Any pros/cons of maintaining a Black Fiat GP. Your inputs will be of great help. Thanks.
