Ohh! So we now know who troubled you during your acquisition

BTW, Rajini, thanks for clearing the myth that 'punto 1.2 is underpowered'!

Possible, but Mumbai doesn't fall on the route from Chandni Chowk to China

OT: The normal route is Chennai - Maduranthakam - Tindivanam(take the bypass) - Vikravandi (there is a toll plaza from GMR and immediately after take a left ) - Panruti - Neyveli - Anaikarai - Kumbakonam.

Except for a small stretches between Panruti and Anakarai, the road is generally good. The roads from Chennai to Vikravandi are excellent.

A small point to keep in mind is afte the vikravandi toll plaza, you need to take a left immediately after the toll else you would go up the bridge and you would have to again take a you turn and come back.Its very easy to miss the left turn in the nights.

Default Music system installed in punto this weekend

Hi Guys

Over the weekend, I have installed a music system in the car.After sarching quite a lot for a bluetooth system I decided to go in for the Grundig Delphi X350BT from xenos.

The system costed around 7200.

The speakers came to around 5k,the total cost came to around 12,200/-

The system seems good with the sound clarity being good.

The system has usb,sd slot,voice dialling and a remote.

For the price,it seems a decent buy.

Some pics of the same are attached.

Also,this week remote locking+ rear sensors are getting done.

The work done was neat and professional.

Hi,
I saw your car in Xenos Galleria,Chennai.
I came there to meet subramanian,Manager.
He personally called and shown me your car.
They were working with Central locking System.
We checked your door for placing the tweeters.But unable to fixed as there is no provisions.cutting is essential.so left in the dashboead.
They used cables for Central Locking like big cars.
Good Choice.
Enjoy and Drive Safe

Yea it was with xenos the whole day and I told them to drop it off at my place late night.They could not get the central locking done that day,should get it installed perhaps this week.They needed some chip which was not available with them at that time.Did you see the music system?tried it?What did you come to buy at xenos?

Just a casual visit.
I already done sunfilms including Front WindShield in (Solargard)Xenos only.Check my thread.
I know each and every person there.
Whenever i cross the place, i visit them all.

Nope,They were working on speakers and central locking installation.
So no chance to hear it.

we will meet someday and if possible ,just join with us for linea meet going to happen on 12 sep 2009.
Place and time are not fixed though.
I'll inform you once it's fixed

Default any idea on this colour mismatch/kind of faded on my rear bumper/

Hey guys

The colour in my bumper shows a kind of mismatch across the whole bumper.It looks like the colour has kind of faded or a coat has come off.

Does anybody have any idea why its there?TAFE polishes and gives it to me but as soon as some water falls on it, the colour changes and its stark to see.

Please give in your views.

Definitely have somes issue.
Did you check while getting delivery?
seems it's like salt water sediment.
Ask the Service guy to do sanding and rubbing polish.
might be fixed the issue.
Otherwise insist them to do repainting the whole bumper and if any other impacted area.

Actually these are the places around which the scratch mark was there on delivery day.The car next day was polished i guessed and given back.

The first time the car was washed with water,its been there from then.The car is actually due for first service soon and I was wanting to have this checked out so before that thought would be a good idea to ask your views to see if its just something common.
