    I think Sat has the GC upgrade kit installed, because the 2010 GP did not have 185mm GC. Sat can you confirm?

    Bouncing abnormally? ? Like hydraulic cars??:confused:
    Either your expectations are too high or something seriously wrong with your cars suspension setup.

    PS::Sorry to say but the title of the thread is very misleading for prospective buyers and existing post 2012 owners(they will start doubting their car), if one or two people in the forum have faced peoblems and others are fine with the same suspension setup, how can all 2012 models have problems??

    Update: Got Yokohama C drive on my 2013 Punto 90HP, brother driving it and I am sitting on rear seat. Superb ride comfort. No issue of bouncing or uneven ride on bad roads and a lot of plastic rattles are gone for good.

    The suspension has come back to life. Ride quality has improved a lot !!!

    Brother is all praise about the Yokohama C drive tyre!!

    Bottom line, Goodyear GT3 were causing this Issue, now that I got rid of them, issue sorted !!!

    Cheers :thumbup:

    @Mohankv and @wolverine_arnab yeah. Even though the suspension is tuned to be on stiffer side on FIATs, the tyres were causing all the problem I believe.

    I was in a fix whether I must change the suspension and then think of tyres or the other way round.

    Finally after consulting a lot of people and TFI members, I couldn't stop myself from getting Yokohama C drive. Now the vehicle just runs flat on roads and the bumps and irregularities or roads are soaked well !!

    My suggestion to everyone facing this issue, if possible try other tyres before concluding that the suspension is gone bad.

    In short, the vehicle is a lot more better to drive and bumpy nature GOOD BYE !!!

    Thanks :thumbup:

    Quoting my own post from this thread. So it was the GT3 tyres indeed as we suspected.

    Well, Imran buddy, all is well that ends well. Enjoy the ride.
