    @ Zen, I thought today you would be at Fiat showrooms enquiring about bookings for refreshed Punto ;)

    I am waiting for the media news about this refreshness actually. But before that i wanted to do TD of Punto. Have booked via their website. Hoping this weekend i shall get one. Even waiting on Polo too. I am not making urgency. As Mr. Rajan ones said make sure i dont get lemon ;)

    Its already too late for me to wait for such a long term buddy. The refresheness is just about few interiors. So fingers crossed about it and hoping it looks cool!

    Regarding this, I think nowadays cars with 6 forward and a reverse gear come with this setting. I have seen the same in Hyundai i20 diesel and Verna as well. Extra button is to make sure that you wont accidentally slot it into "Reverse" when trying to slot into 1st gear. Not sure why they have it in Etios.

    Well Liva had just 5. So i wonder why such changes. Perhaps they being very forward in thinking. They are designing every component for future now itself. hmm...

    What i heard and read @ TFI is that interirors does gets color changes and may be a bit of changes to dashboard design. Yes apart from that every thing remains same. But gear shift thing is new for me.
    However, if they go only for gear shift then its not really called Refreshed punto right. Even their road map also says the same (refresh).

    Yes i have kept it at the last. Have asked the Polo guys to book for TD this weekend. Waiting for Punto guys to get back. Besides i have decided to TD punto for more than 2 times. Hopefully it will work out.
