Hey congrats on your lovely car. Even i am looking to take the Punto MJD. I have not yet decided on the version yet. I am still confused on what version to take. Either dynamic or emotion. Which do you think better. Is it really worthy of spending the extra money on the emotion version or would you say save and get a good audio system.

Lovely seat covers by the way. Where did you get it done. I would love if you can let me know the shop. So that i can also get it done.

One more thing how much did you pay for your car on road. Can you break the pricing down for me. That would be really helpful.

Congrats also on the superb alloys....Car looks really cool.

I decided to go for Active,but then the central locking,dials etc made me think of dynamic.i never had Emotion in mind.The dealer was VST and the OTR was 588,600.But i had a 3k lesser OTR because i took the insurance from my bank ie.HDFC,who also was the one to give me a car loan.Thank you for all the wishes.All the accessories were bought at Variety Auto Accessories GP Road.

hey guys wanted to ask. Since you have a dynamic. I want to know it from you. How much will of a difference does ABS make in the car while driving in a regular city traffic.
I testdrove the car today EMOTION + and i loved it. Just a bit doubtful about the brakes so i can decide between emotion and dynamic.
Please let me know. Thanks

Is it the new 98 pcd frm HRS or is it the retro fitting job by the shop guys??



Guys a very very big update from my side.Got the alloys fixed.No teaser pics,no making you wait..I have gone for OE alloys with YOKO ES 100 in 195/60/15..Yes the stock size.But i sticked to stock size as it was already a good size from FIAT.But dint want Goodyear.so i went ahead with YOKO ES 100.because i was in love with the pattern.
The cost breakup
Alloys FIAT OE-14k
Tyres with nitrogen,balancing etc for 4-16.4K
ALLOY shipping from Hyderabad-600 bucks.
The big smile in everybodys face=priceless.
I have some average quality pics taken in the evening when fixing the tyres.better pics in a few days as it is raining heavily in chennai.

Pics time.
