    Hey nicely put together :wink: Last week when I had been to Mahabaleshwar with one of my friends, I handed over the car to him and for 20 mins he drove, he was just telling his wife how comfortable and connecting is to drive a FIAT. Mind you he drives a Fiesta which is also one of the best handling cars in this price bracket. I always tell my friends, a car is not a medium of transfer, its fun when you bond with your car.
  2. +1 to that.

    Amit a very good and emotional write up. Your ownership details on TBhp was one of the factors for me to go for GP. Thanks! for that dude. If I would have gone for another car, I can now imagine what all I would have missed and missed BIG TIME.

    Amit Bhai, Brilliantly put together, you are a True Romantic At Heart :)

    Agreed, the Grande Punto is such a wonderful Masterpiece of Automobile Engineering, that it can put to shame many other Cars within its segment and some cars above its segment when it comes to Ride & Handling. Just it needs more powerful engines to prove it mettle. And may be the GP VGT with 90HP could do the trick to silence the critics who have very less knowledge about the car itself.

    When we (Myself & You) went to test drive the Punto when it was launched in 2009, it was the Love at First Sight :)

    Somehow first i missed your thread for the S10 on TBHP, but when i discovered the thread, it was a brilliant read altogether until you parted with the Beauty. And this thread also contiues the legacy, Kudos to you, Great going and keep updating the thread regularly, i know you are so involved with the Red Beauty that now you seldom get to update the thread :mrgreen:

    Regards,
    Sanjeev

    The thing with critics is that nothing is good enough to satisfy them. Somehow I have noticed that when it comes to Fiat, we expect them to give us the best , most powerful engines with class leading fuel efficiency and interior quality that rivals Rolls Royce at hatchback prices! I guess the bar is high for Fiat because they have a point to prove so people expect them to blitz their way into the market with a top quality product at reasonable prices.

    More then the VGT, I want Fiat to launch the Punto T-Jet with 150bhp mated to a 6 speed M/T. If FIat bring this car, then my Punto MJD will be on sale for sure. Everytime I drive the car on the highway's, I feel like :hit Fiat for not offering the T-Jet from day one.

    UPDATE: There are two things that I would like to update on with my car.

    1.) The driver's seat has started creaking again. I don't want to go through the whole process of taking the car to Fortune, showing them the problem, they taking a test drive to confirm , ordering the part , me following up with them and then finally going again one whole day to get it changed. Does anyone here have good contacts with Fortune, Nerul or Wasan, Chembur? I want the dealers to straight away order for the driver's seat or install a new one if they have it in stock.

    2.) Mileage is stuck between 15.0 to 15.7kmpl! This is down from the regular 18.0 to 18.5 kmpl that I used to get. I have to admit though that there is a lot of idling with ACC on nowadays and my driving has become a little heavy footed too.
