Sid, don't post the pictures. Share the story with us when you've had the chance to come to terms with this, till then, take care and spend more time with your family.

Sid, sad to hear about your car but happy to hear that everyone in the car was safe. As someone previously said, cars can be bought again but not family. Take care.

I was tempted at the new I 20, but again, not too keen to pick one because of the "H" badge (I do not believe in owning same branded products in repeat succession). I have started saving for my future security (in these uncertain times) and no car will be purchased at least till 2011.

But yes, a fiat, maybe, I plan to go for punto diesel dynamic and customise it according to my tastes.Only if it came with ABS and airbags..

Let 2011 come, then I will decide what to do. Till then, I will continue to drive SRK's first brand ambassador car.

Sid, sorry to hear about the accident. Better news is that everyone in the car is fine. Speaks volumes about the safety aspect of the car.

As you have rightly pointed out, it is better to save for rainy days rather than spend money on buying a new car. Once you are ready to buy, think hard and buy something that suits you. All the best.

Thumbs up Cheers to GOD and FIAT

Uhh that was a nasty incident. Damage done to the car and as well as the mind. Will take time to heal from it. Thanks to GOD and built of the car which saved your family.

When you are driving in a car, I believe life is in both GOD's and car's hand!

Hope to see you back with..maybe a new Sporty Punto

Wow start to end , I missed this thread for some reason. Was bewildered at his decision to go with the Punto - smiled my way through the poetry showing a man in love , shocked at the way the love story ended and gave a quiet prayer since it all ended relatively well. How about the Beat this time Sid?

For your love of cars and meticulous capturing of details related to them, I was expecting a lot with your association with the Punto.

Very sad that it has come to an end so soon. However I'm glad that your car didn't go out without a flash. What's important is, your family and driver are safe from a dangerous crash. I believe the car, though short lived will be remembered for long.
