Yes but only if Punto comes with power engines matching my 1.6 100BHP horses!

Though my wishlist is the Bravo

Bravo is expected to be in the range above 10lakhs?
For sure I read its coming to India. Also there were a couple of snaps of it in the launch thread of Punto.

All the best brother.

BTW, I am still to get my hands on my baby.
I am down with fever. May the wait is taking its toll on me.

Well, I just could not resist an upgrade after I compared both the pictures.<br /> <br />
They should have written Emotion pack on emotion pack.<br />
Offcourse BnM sticker does the honours of differentiating both.</div>   <div style=

Congrats Hrishiz. All the best with your new drive and wish u gr8 time throughout.

I am sure you would find the ride and handling many times better than WagonR. I drive one at home. and i hate it only for that reason that its from no angle a driver's car.(I do like the sound at higher RPMs though ) Your thread only makes me hope the day soon comes when i will upgrade something most desirable like a Punto, or better Fiesta S .

Well Jayakumar thank you for those words. Wish you all the best for the upgrade and may it come sooner than you expect.

Hey Hrishiz congrats on your Beautifully cute Red point. it is indeed cute.

When are you expecting the delivery of your vehicle.

Is the RF motors situated on the highway after the Edappally junction. I had been there for a test drive of Fiat Grand Punto. But man I was really depressed at the way they handle customers. Same is the case with the dealer here in trivandrum. Still I see a lot of Puntos & Lineas around.

Yup,The RF motors in situated on the highway side,Edappally,more precisely Pathadipalam.I took the delivery of my Bossa Nova White - Fiat Grande Punto Emotion Pack from RF Motors and I am very much satisfied with them.Moreover my car had a small breakdown and they even came for the assistance to the place of breakdown which is almost 160 kms away from RF Motors.

Dear Klub class,

You are really lucky to get at least satisfactory dealings from RF motors. I am still waiting for my Punto which I had booked a month back at RF, Edapally. No transparency at all in their ways of doing things, for the last couple of days they are giving a version that the vehicle is in transit. But even after my continuous enquiry the Sales guy is not ready to divulge details about VIN no./Engine no. of the car. Also Fiat has now announced a Diwali discount, thanks to Team-bhp from where I knew it. Now only after me raising voice for this the sales guy has agreed on the discount. I wonder how many ignorant customers are being fooled.
Fiat has a state of the art product with them, but alas marketing is really a let down.

Brother, I bought it from Concorde, Nettur (Near Maradu)
I am very happy the way they handled A.S.service.

May be you should consider cancellation or walk into the showroom and demand to speak to a senior, all this if the whole is not with Finance or any other hassles but ONLY because of the showroom guys.

Default 11,000+odd Kms update

Bought this one in the last August and looks like yesterday.

I just stick with likes and otherwise, on this post, after so many Kms on the Odo.

Likes:

The car is one great highway material.
If not in a hurry, gives a good, rather very good FE.[Mine is an MJD]

Dislikes:

Wish it would take off like the Swift.
Stock music system, a let down.

Well, most of the features of this great cae have been discussed to death. So just sticking with my opion, in brief.

Well, every long trip I take, my conviction that my choice was indeed a right one. Else I would have ended up driving around Swift!

I did not mean to hurt anyone, but after having driven both SWIFT and Punto. I can safely say, Punto is an awesome car.

Have changed my oil on 6000Km. Smooth and cool, Punto, just became smoother and cooler.
