    There is a small spacer in the battery tray. If that is removed, then a DIN55 will be a perfect fit. Check this out:

    That small strip you see in the bottom right is what I am talking about.

    Batterybhai installer came to my office and installed the battery today.

    didn't notice the spacer, maybe it was missing in my cars battery tray. the tray itself is big in size so there was no problem accomodating the DIN55 battery. will post picture in the evening.

    Shams, Can you confirm the model number of battery you bought is same as the one shown on the Battery Bhai Link you posted?

    i.e. AAM-FL-555112054

    I was shown 5550... Something, so i wanted to confirm.

    right, the model no is AAM-FL-555112054. i can see that batterybhai has increased the price. I bought it on Oct 23rd for '5600 with old battery'. Now it shows 5800.

    Yeah, It showed Rs 5800 for Hyderabad earlier too and now, it's out of stock. I guess the price is modified based on availability of stock.

    Anyway, I'll bet my money on a local dealer to extract a better price if possible.

    my punto got dent on the bonnet today due to my fault when i could not stop in time and hit an innova from behind when he had braked hard and stopped suddenly. innovas rear bumper got some scratches and a very small crack. payed 1000 rs to the driver and settled the matter as it was my fault.

    Bad luck shams, these things are unavoidable.
    BTW, how much is your dent, any picture?
