Though the monsoons are over, its still pouring Puntos on T-BHP... and no one's complaining.

Congrats @asdon, have a great time with your new Italian babe.

Hey Asdon, Congrats on your latest pick Bro. Wish you many more happy miles.

I could be wrong here man, but were you driving a Getz before you picked this Punto up??

Congrats on the Red Punto MJD Active. Enjoy many more happy miles with the MJD.

By the way, the freebies are pretty good. Please provide the breakup of the on road price.

Asdon, Congrats and welcome to the Fiat Grande Punto club. I have seen your multiple postings before always in to support FIAT cause when you owned an Alto. I used to guess why. Now I see the reason.

I guess you have already done enough research before you finalized the Punto. Crunch many more happy miles with your beauty. It is always good to see more and more Puntos on the Bangalore roads. When I bought the car a year ago, I used to feel an alien driving the vehicle on Bangalore roads. Nowadays I spot atleast 5~10 Puntos everyday during my drive from home to office and back. It is getting more common and I guess all owners share a common passion too. I have seen fellow Punto owners smiling at each other when they drive past.

Finally. Congrats on the purchase. Do post more details on the buying experience with KHT Motors. Did you get the extended warranty and first year insurance free ?

So true. This happens even with my Palio and Fiat 1100 so this shows the passion among Fiat drivers!

Congratulations on the purchase. Nice car you got for yourself. Safe and happy Driving.
Muggers of Bangalore now better stay away from all the Puntos.
