    Paji thanks for sharing the information......now I am damn sure that I am not going to sell my car, and will using lifetime as decided when I bought 90HP.

    This information added much power in my decision :)

    Ah! I guess you haven't gone through this thread, yet. I tried to outline some good practices for the turbo and engine's health in this thread.

    Major roads which connect villages to cities - Generally Good, few exceptions.

    Majority of roads in the villages - pathetic. Same case with my Maternal Granpa's village. Approach road is great, but the 7 or km's of village roads to his house is fit only for tractors.

    May be that explains why slightly bad condition of gear box. 10 times more use than normal. But still even after hitting more than 1L it still keeps the energy with it. A big :up for his punto.

    The gearbox is perfect, no issues.

    Just the gear change mechanism located in the cabin of the car seems worn out. But if you can ignore play in lever and slightly notchy shifts, you wouldn't give two thoughts about it.

    Cheers.
