Thumbs up She is home, She is Hot & Yes its Punto

Hey Guys,

Finally after the long long wait I got the delivery of my Minimal Grey MJD E Pack yesterday evening. To begin with the experience at the dealer was not something I would say a world class. I had decided to go with a GP after looking at all the options available in the market. My initial plan was to go with a Swift Dzire but then the wait was soooo long. The Dealers attitude was not a world class I had to follow a lot about my cars delivery details. But I would still say it was much better than the Hyundai Dealer I went enquiring about the i20 (Hyundai Dealers attitude was more like why you wanna buy a car).

Well at the end finally the delivery was done yesterday after much push back from the dealer.

Came home got the Blue & Me paired with my iPhone and called my parents it works great! Still I was not able to play my iPhone playlist using the USB ports given.

The Initial ride is smooth and so far I am enjoying the ride.
The Dealer has not given me the number plates so he has advised me not to drive a lot till that time (is it normal?)

I am planning to take the car to Lavasa and back once I get my number plates sometime next week.

Hang on tight will be posting the detailed reviews soon along with some snaps.

Congrats! My colleague and TBHPian too is waiting for his Grey Punto (they have only one grey color right?)

Why not get the numbers printed on a paper, stick it at number plate location and drive till then! Cant believe you are sitting at home and drooling at your car that's parked in your garage !

Go drive!
