    Very good report with nice write-up and correct photo proofs.
    Keep it up. FIAT car engines improves with more running. After almost 1,50,000 kms , my padmini is super silent. If bonet is put, you can't make out engine is running except small tapet noise. After 1,00,000+ kms my Uno(D) was giving almost 20-21 mileage.
    Alternatively if we see any Japanese/korean engines, they become "khatara" after 80/90k kms. I have also noticed the load pulling capacity of FIAT engines. It may not have very super speed pickup but even if you put 6-7 persons inside car, still it pulls with the same pickup. Japanese/korean engines just get upset with full 5 persons load.

    Great comparison Yashik. And perfect catch and detailed explanation of every aspect.

    When I talked to Mr. Mangesh last year, during Fiat Camp, he told same thing, Fiat does some correction after hearing feedbacks. Hope new owners will tell more about so called quality improvements.

    Frankly when I bought my Punto, never cared about these things, and believe me these things still don't bother me in my car.

    Thanks a lot Italia_Linea, Bnzjon, Ichimaru, kr_vasudev, Tony, Nk4Fiat sir and Mr. Ravi for the positive comments. :)
    There were a lot of questions these days regarding quality and other upgrades in the 2011 models. So I decided to post a comparison.

    @Mods- Thanks for re-ordering the photos. But, can you please re-order some of the pics at the bottom???
    Correct order is pic 6, 6a and then pic 7. Currently, they are arranged as 7, 6a and 6. :anyone

    I can understand why Fiat is silent on these salient improvements. Moment they say..." new, improved interiors", detractors will start cursing them for providing "supposedly" third class interiors in the first place.

    Great comparo Yashik. Fiat makes great cars and that is the bottom line.
