Congrats Sumit and welcome to the Grande Punto Club. By the way, did you get 4 alloys for Rs9000? I think it is 9000/wheel. Can you clarify?

Congrats. Great choice & color. Good to see the alloys on.
How is the voice clarity & mic reception in the hands free? Read the mic is built in with the HU.
Road tax in PB is mouthwatering. 5.8L on road? B'lore is good at high road taxes.

Thank You.
Voice clarity is good on both ends. Min recepetion is as good as talking on a bluetooth headset.
Road tax here is 1% which calculates to around Rs. 5000 + Rs. 1500 Education Cess. A total of Rs. 6500.

Kenwood system costed me Rs. 9900 with bill and warranty.

I got 4 alloys for Rs. 9000. Someone drove straight to a tire shop from showroom and changed the stock alloys to some cheap chrome ones.
I bought it from the tyre shop for Rs. 9000.
Alloys were 40 kms old when I bought them.

I felt it looked better in body colored in red color. Will check out a red punto with black pillars.
Black tape is available in dealership? The stock one has glossy effect.

I went for Black as it was readily available and then I liked it when I saw couple of black Puntos. Its a tough job for me to maintain it though

I have seen black punto on raod. It looks mean.
Congratulations!!
Sure, it would be tough to maintain. Even red color is tough to maintain. But, its worth it!!!

Congratulations Sumit!

Saw your new car a few times parked outside your place and it sure does attract attention from far!

Where did you get the tints done from? Which brand and how much?

Regards,
Jaspreet Singh
