    I was just thinking how the split (between city/HW)was arrived at in first place, in the data table.
    pasting it again.
    "
    13.76930661 : 90% City drive, 100% AC
    16.08187135 : 60% City, 40% HW, 100% AC
    14.10857909 : 70% CITY, 30% HW, 100% AC
    17.59322034 : 50% City, 100% AC

    Its the approx % of the drive. No rocket science :). I have copy pasted only the kmpl and usage pattern. Following is the complete record which I have :

    2386 2899 513 30.94 39.8 16.58047835 Normal 1231.41 13-Jun-10 HP, Bavdhan 40% City, 100% AC

    Here, 513 is the distance traveled, out of which around 40% is driven in city.

    Thats a nasty mark. However, it should go away with help of a rubbing compund. Or go to a TASC you know well & get hold of 3M guy there. For a few bucks he'll remove it. And better you do it fast before that mark toughens itself & gets "embedded"

    Hi Amit, Rubbing compound done the wonder. Visited the BUB Wakad and asked the 3M guy to see if the rubbing compound can remove the stain.

    Guys, on another note, my driver side Fog is not working since yesterday. MID is not showing anything, neither for fuse nor the bulb. BUB said they need to keep the car till evening to resolve this. I will go there early next week now. Any idea guys??
  6. Gr8 pics Neoonwheels. How far is Mahad from Pune? This looks to be nice ghat section drive.

    It must be somewhere around 130 km. Roads are overall ok. Not too great nor too bad. Varandha ghat is in better shape than Tahmini.

    Excellent review. Love the Punto in black .Waiting for travelogue . Wax polish should help for the stain .

    At 2:30, I received a call from FIAT Italy. This was regarding the ownership feedback after 3 months of purchase. The interviewer went through all parts - exterior, interior, handling, driving pleasure, service feedback. He was writing down my points. It was for around 1/2 hour. I briefed him about the issues which I faced to which he said he will get in touch in due course. He also asked me if the call can be recorded for future assessment. I was surprised as he asked me about :

    1. Bonnet/door lock/latch breaking
    2. Rattling noise from seats
    3. Seat height adjustment
    4. Interior fit and finish
    5. BluenMe controls and working

    If you notice these are few of the issues Punto owners have reported in the past. I hope they will act on the feedback they are getting from the owners.
