    Congratulations on the Punto.

    Please post some snaps of your Italian beauty. We at TFI just dont get enough of any Punto pics.

    @ghodlur The left pulling issue is slightly still there. But I have decided to keep with it since the guys at the service center are firmly of the opinion that its not a left-pulling.
    By the way I also test-drove another punto and a t-jet which also have exactly the same "problem".

    Also, sorry all for not posting any pics so far. Below is a pic on delivery date i.e. 3rd Aug 2013.
    Will post more recent pics and I'm also planning to write an initial review.

    The same problem is faced by me as well and as told by service guys that it is due to road sloping on sides.

    First Service Update (6 months or 5000 km):

    I did the first service today and here are the details.

    1. Service type: Free 1st service
    2. Venue: Pandit Auto, Bavdhan, Pune
    3. Issues:
    a) Fuel lid not closing without a "slap": It's now been fixed. The lid now closes with a nice "click" sound.
    b) Left and right headlights had different gap levels. Left headlight was appearing to come out of the slot by some 5 mm.
    Status: It's also fixed very quickly.
    c) Underbelly had scrapped once and I was especially concerned about the damage it might have done. But no damage was found except for a minor misalignment on the protective metal sheet under the engine. They fixed it with just 1 whack of a rod.
    4. I was also satisfied with the washing and the waxing especially inside the cabin. It's now looking like a shiny brand new car.
    5. All fluid levels were normal. Hence no need to change anything.
    6. Total cost: Rs. 0/- :D
    7. Total time spent at the center: 2 hours 15 mins.
    8. All the persons I met were extremely courteous and polite.
    9. Overall rating: 9/10 (1 point deducted only for some improvement next time)

    Off Topic. And I thought only my professors deduct marks so that we improve. :D 3:) Just kidding.

    Nice to see that Pune is getting excellent service.
