    Update:
    punto was supposed to be delivered today evening but Mr Suresh (GM service KHT) requested me to leave the car for one more day to which i agreed.
    he wants to keep the car under observation, with engine running for 2-3 hrs post mounting of engine head to have a thorough check and make sure that nothing is missed.

    In the meantime I got a reply from Mangesh from Fiat in which he increased the goodwill discount on parts to 50%. Mr Suresh is giving 25% discount on labour and 25% on lathe work.

    Feeling somewhat better now :)

    Seems you have build good "goodwill" from Fiat and KHT, both :).

    Hope work is done correctly and you start driving with full force again soon.

    If you remember I had thanked Mangesh for his help in the past when we met him at Fiat plant last year. I reminded him about that on email maybe that helped :)

    About KHT, i would have been there not less than 100 times for various reasons both small and big so that was expected!!
    hoping they do this job well!!

    ganges, it will take some time to get the confidence back :p
    i am going to drive in a sedate manner for next few months atleast !!

    This is nice to hear.

    We blast Fiat to death if something goes wrong with the service. And they surprise us by doing these 'goodwill' measures. I bet, no other manufacturer in India will do this. :)

    Shams am very happy that you need to pay lesser than the quote. I dont think that you need to maintain 2k rpm. Since just the head has been overhauled not the block or piston. You can drive happily again.
