I was thinking on the same lines.

The cost of the alloys is Rs. 12600 for a set of 4. They are available in Delhi. Sai Mag wheels, the distributor is ready to ship them to Hyd.


The GP service manual says:

"The distance between the stud centre lines is 100 mm, use only the wheels specified for this vehicle." Screenshot below.

Does this mean the Punto has 100 PCD?

Default 4000 km Update

I completed 4000 km yesterday. In a recent trip back home, I noticed that the GC does suffer a bit with 2 people and luggage. I scraped the bottom more than twice.

The recent FE figures were impressive @ 18 kmpl with 100% AC and a light foot.

One sad incident to mention, someone scratched my bumper with some sharp object. . Pics attached.

Here are a few more pictures of the beauty with some greenery and rain.

Naughty kid or a euphoric youngster. :(.

Should the complete bumper be repainted for this? Any inputs if com paint or any touch up sprays can do the job?

@Eagle_bush: Congrats on buying the Punto, great choice! The third alloy would look hot. Would be great if you could tell me where you bought the THA 555 PnP amp from.

Enjoy the ride!

Thanks UKR.

I sourced the amp from Blaupunkt distributor in Mumbai. Details available on Blaupunkt Site.

5000 km Update.

My Punto completed a graceful 5227 km last weekend. The FE has improved a lot. I got 20.4 kmpl on A.C and an amazing range of 826 km to the full tank. I must say the increase in FE is because I learnt to drive the mileage way, with the Instant consumption always ON on the MID. It was a bit difficult in the beginning, but now, its become a habit. No rattles, no interiors falling off. Everything is as solid as was at the time of delivery.

Got my team-bhp stickers just yesterday. A few pics for the lovers.
