    Thank you all for the warm welcome :)
    Yes I too feel the same, diesel and petrol will be priced almost same in ~2years.
    Thanks, btw are you also a linux admin?
    Annual running would be around 15k kms, With the current prices(de-regulated) I will be recovering the extra diesel cost in about 4-5years.
    Its a BNW Emotion.
    Yes, will be doing the PDI tomorrow.

    Just did the PDI, the VIN suggests its September 2012, Its not a problem right?

    I'm getting parking sensors as free accessories, but I dint quite like it as the sensors are black and car is white.

    great :)

    Are the parking sensors always black? Can't they be painted to body colour? I am going to get a White Linea with Parking sensors.

    FIAT OEM parking sensors comes in black only and they wont work if you paint them. Else you can get white ones from outside, for 2-3k.

    Hi Fayad,

    Welcome to TFI.

    Even i have the same Sept 2012 made Punto(Dynamic). No worries at all. Just ensure the PDI is done properly. Do check the PDI thread on TFI.

    I dont think Fiat provides OEM RPS for Punto. For linea yes they do provide it as part of Absolute edition pack.
    So under such scenario it is aftermarket RPS for you provided free by the dealer. Even i got the Red Soul RPS( paid some extra to get the distance indicator on IRVM.) and it was black sensors. I was told the sensitivity of the RPS goes down if you paint it white :) though i was not convinced i didnt say anything and let it be the same. I dont mind the sensors being in black color.

    Now i have a linea 2011 model for which i was given RPS with distance indicator on IRVM but painted in body color free of cost by Concorde Kochi. Till date nothing has happened and in my experience its quite accurate on the linea...

    I think it is OK to be painted.
    I found this PDF from net, describes painting procedure by a sensor maker.

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for the welcome :) When did you get your car?

    He showed me the box having the fiat logo and said it was OEM and has warranty. It has only a buzzer and no display in IRVM. May be it was linea's, but I hope that doesnt matter. There is another aftermarket RPS with white sensors and comes a bigger IRVM and display in it. Having used both, how do you rate it, which one to go for? Also you cant use the day-night mirror if you get the one with IRVM, right?
    So are you saying that you can paint it?
    Hi Nithin, Thank you!its 76hp
    Hi limraj, Thanks for the pdf. Wondering why the dealer told it cant be painted. May be its warranty would be void or they dont want paint it also, anyway they are giving it for free.
    Hi Surya,

    Thank you!
