Congrats on your new punto. Wish you many miles of safe driving. I do understand the feeling of getting a new car. But don't tell that YSR death or somebody's death screwd up your plans. No offence meant.

Congrats Vignesh, Enjoy the cute hatch!

The pics don't do the justice, take it out to a countryside & click some nice shots.

Congrats Vignesh. Medium grey is looking quite cute with that little mod. Do post pics of your ICE install once you get it done.

Honestly, I did not like that black paint/sticker. Looks more i20 than Punto now. Anyway, congrats for the new car.

i disagree!! this is more sporty i guess!! the black grill!!

i would have gone for the black color!! since it matches with the orvm's body colored door handles!!

i am sure you can get it painted from the dealers extra cost right?

any upgrades to alloys?!!

oh and congratulations man!!

Default Update

Car has done 200 kms..The ICE thing has been done.Tecnokrat is the place to go.really a professional job.i love it.Though its only a budget ICE setup.its doing wonders.All JBL is a good combo actually.Pics are coming by this eve..I will surely post it today..Have ordered the seat covers.I ll get it by Saturday....It will be full black with a small silver strip on the edges..The most important thing is it will come with a full Punto logo on all seats..I have asked them to do that specially.


Vignesh

Got the bold new drive
