Congrats luky! I am sure she will look lovely in white.

Just curious- what made you put your money in without a delivery date assurance from the dealer/company? I am in a similar situation and loathe to part with my hard-earned dough just so these jokers can earn interest on it!

Suresh,
I would like to know whether the floor and boot mats are washable rubber type.
I have bought an ANHC recently and don't like the fabric floor mats supplied by Honda as they cannot be washed and get dirty easily.
So I am looking for a good quality floor and boot mats, if you have any suggestions,
Have you posted your initial ownership report?
What tint have you chosen for the windows and windshields?
Does the parking sensor have a display or is it only indicating the distance to object?

Get the VIN no for your car from your dealer, and ask Wildon in his finding the VIN thread for the exact details of your car. Will give you a good idea about manufacturing date etc, so you can confirm any such doubts.

anthonydcruz, Congratulations and welcome to the Fiat Punto Club

I would highly recommend you to have a look at this article :Pre-delivery Inspection & Check List .Take a printout of Team-BHP PDI Checklist, it might take time to cross check every thing, but I bet it will be worth.

I'm eagerly waiting for the ownership report from you with loads of pictures.

@Klub Class aka Amith, thank you very much buddy, well i've been going through almost all the ownership reports on this forum.
And regarding the PDI, i have already spoken to my dealer(sales executive) about the PDI, saying that I would do the PDI myself and I am a member of T-Bhp and he readily agreed for it.
Ownership report won't be as detailed as some of you people have penned down. As i am not so good at writing. But i am sure you won't be disappointed by the pictures. Thanks once again.

And you too can call me 'Amit'

Went to Pratham (Outer Ring Road) yesterday, and they didn't mention anything about 2 month wait periods for VXI/LXI..

Apologies for the late reply.

The floor mats that I got free from the dealer is washable rubber type, beige colour to match the interiors. They look pretty good. FYI, I bought the car from Whitefield Honda, Bangalore. In case you want to call and enquire.

I'm yet to post my ownership report, I'm thinking of a write up after the first service which is due in a couple of weeks. The dealer has installed llumar tint which abide by the transport department guidelines, I feel these are sufficient as I'm not a big fan of very dark tints. The parking sensors are the distance indicator type which I am still getting used to.

Thanks abhinav - actually Lxi was available, but my wife wanted to go for the top-end, instead of taking Lxi and upgrading! I was told waiting period for Vxi is 2 months, but the executive promised to get it earlier. Let me see what happens
