    Hi there, great choice there, the best available!

    Tips from a Delhi ncr fellow fiat owner:

    (a) don't worry or fret about the car, even if you notice things that you think are off. Don't be paranoid. The several FASS in delhi ncr are mostly ok-to-excellent. Be sure to service it properly and thoroughly, though, preferably under your own watchful eye.

    (b) run-in the engine, avoid over-revving, keep changing revs if on the open road, learn to adjust your gear shifting to the torque-rev band. Feel free to stay in the slow/short gears 1 and 2 if in dense traffic, no point upshifting to a torqey third gear if you're going to have to slow down again and therefore have to downshift shortly down the road. The engine (and even gearbox) will open-up and smoothen out over the first several thousand kms.

    (c) be sure to drive on open roads as much as you can, in higher gears at somewhat higher speeds: that's where the fun factor comes in, that's where the car's deep engineering-quality of suspension, chassis, steering and braking shines through, that's where this small mjd engine's excellence lies.

    cheers, man, enjoy! Keep posting.

    Congrats on the Punto @Arjunbhargava. There is an ICE thread and couple of associated threads. Do take your question there. It would be nice if you can suggest you budget for the same.

    Thanks @asimpleson ,

    I have gone through ICE portal but I am damn confused(rms power ratings on off amp and all ) so I am looking for a specific and good setup my range is 25 k at start will keep on adding on per month after that... Hope u will suggest something good ...I am a bass junkie with lots of skrillex in my playlist ...I have spent lots of money on my i10 and fabia with rock ford and hertz but not satisfied :-(
