    Hello everyone! This is my first post on this forum.

    I booked my first car: an azure Punto 90 HP on August 1st (from Tata Motors -AutoLinks at Hauz Khas, New Delhi).

    The car should hopefully be with me within a week and I am simply beside myself with excitement! :steering

    Hope some members from this part of Delhi can share some of their experience w.r.t service etc. Please also share some tips on things to keep in mind while doing a PDI.
  2. congrats on the car!!
    drive safe.
    have fun.

    do the PDI properly. download the PDI list from the forum!
    if possible talk to any one TFIian from Delhi.

    WELCOME TO TFI

    Thanks everyone!

    Could you tell me if a running in period is to be adhered to? For how long? Any oil changes etc during this period?

    Officially there is not Run in Period for FIAT but for first 1000km drive her carefully, thats what I did with my 90HP. I didnt crossed 80kmph. Now I completed near about 2000kms & revving her upto 2500 to 3000 RPM

    Congrats dude. FTA 90hp is the killer deal.

    About the running in, don't be too conservative , dont be too radical. Drive normally , just don't abuse it and you'll be fine. We've come a long way in engine tech since the days of the Ambassador etc. ;)

    And yes, do take good care of the turbo. Read through posts 6,11,13,18 of this thread to know some good practices.

    Welcome buddy, boost the turbo and enjoy like me. I shifted from Petrol 1.2 Emotion Punto to 90HP Diesel Punto. I am feeling like I am driving most powerful car. (though it is not)
