    Fiat Punto is an awesome car to drive. 2 years with it and I am in love with the car. You have to drive a FIAT to understand a FIAT and once a FIATIAN always a FIATIAN.

    After all FIAT owns FERRARI

    1100 Kms update

    Car is 11 days old and odo shows 1123kms to be precise .
    No issues so far , apart from plastics part near wipers on bonnet and in between door is very hard to clean . Dont Dare polish the exterior plastic parts , i bet you will stop cleaning it after few failed attempts.
    Interior plastic is opposite , dirt don't settles and very easy to clean and shines with simple cloth.
    Sometimes say 1 out of 10 times when i rotate steering on standstill it makes a weired noise(krrr..wrrr) only when steering is in middle of its rotation cycle, as if its on small pebbles on a very smooth surface( checked 2-3 times if there is something on road).
    Now i feel it to be very easy in B2B traffic unlike before , and pulls very neatly in hills .Mileage around 18 , AC always ON
    Got windows tinted Garware Cool Vision(70% visibility,37%heat rejection) at front (2000Rs) and Garware NF(30% Visibility,55% heat Rejection) at sides and back(And its not Legal) 3400rs, but privacy is my concern . Will take almost a week to dry completely .
    Let me show you the Pic after tints. DSC_0308.jpg DSC_0309.jpg DSC_0310.jpg

    Next thing will be ICE , will post in details once i get it done.
    Already ordered AIR PURIFIER with HEPA filters and ioniser, will get in this week. Saw in sister's car and found to be very effective , feels as fresh as monsoon air in Hills

    Air Purifier seems to be a good product. Does it need power supply or it runs on battery?
  6. Your Punto suits with this film in silver colour.

    Ravi , Air Purifier runs on 12v power socket , consumes 6 watt.

    Thanks, looks to be a good idea to use it, specially Fiat stopped pollen filter and replaced with cheap wire mesh filters, which doesn't do much filtration.
