Finalized a Exotica RED - Emotion Pack, which will run on GASOLINE! From Wasan Motors, Marine lines; Mumbai.

No other dealer was willing to offer freebies which this dealer offered me.. Sun film, Mats, Mud flaps (on availability) & Teflon. But not going ahead with teflon.. Also Rs. 5,000 discount!

Getting insurance from BAJAJ, a quote of approx Rs. 12,000..

I should have the FIRE PUNTO by 8th or 9th SEPT. hopefully...

Will be performing the self inspection at the stockyard by this Saturday.. (thanx to the pre-delivery inspection checklist at Team-BHP)

Till then I will have to face many sleepless nights!!! But WORTH IT.

Oh and another thing, I also ordered the Team-BHP stickers online today right after coming home.. so that the stickers reach me in time before the delivery of my punto. Don't want her to leave the showroom naked!
Guys, a update. The stickers reached well in advance. But..

Spoke to dealer, my car arrived in the stockyard on monday, but the dealer said he will allow me my check after 2 days that is tomorrow. Reason being FIAT representatives at stockyard overlooking their PDI on wednesday and tuesday.. So they could not allow my check in front of them.

I somehow smell something fishy here..!!

Going tomorrow armed with a camera, flash light & the check list.

I guess the final delivery will be latest by monday..

Dealer not keeping his promise..
Received the Engine and chassis number but VIN number still not given to me so i cant verify weather the car is made in august or earlier.... sad.

will update tomorrow..

FIAT
Grande Punto
Dynamic
MJD

Medium Grey

Here are two pictures to give you an idea about the color.







Thanks to Rudra for posting these fantastic pictures in the Auto Image Thread.

Dealer gave me the liberty to let them know if I'd like to upgrade to an emotion in three days time.

I am already driving a Palio since April-06, driving a Zen-D (almost sold) from Dec-98.

Thanks Sushant. I did not know you reached DXB!

Well, plan to keep the 1.2... wife won't let me sell that any day, as she says she is emotionally attached to it.

It has now run 43000 Kms. How's your Palio?

Default Need advice

Guys,
I got a call today evening from my dealer, he said my punto's octroi has been paid and is in his deonar workshop; and i can go tomorrow and perform my check..

Is this the general routine for mumbai dealers (wasan)?? do i have to worry??

I booked VDI(ABS) on 08-Jul-2009 but later i got call from dealer saying that they got VDI without ABS in white color but ABS will take another two/three months then i just close the deal without ABS.

Congrats Tushar.. Drive safe.

The waiting periods of Swift Vdi / Dzire Vdi s are too much. My cousin is waiting for the Dzire, they told 5-6 months. I booked Punto yesterday and delivery will be in 2-3 weeks.
