    @PaddleShifter : Thanks! If Fiat is doing some quality testing of new cars in their tracks (for example : a 5 km drive to check for any issues), will that be part of H mode ? Just wondering.

    Congratulations Angroid on the Fiat Punto 90HP and welcome to the forum.

    As all have said the decision taken by the heart will soon be endorsed by the head too.

    Hope to see your ownership report very soon with lots of pics and smiling faces.

    Congratulations. Going with the heart,can never go wrong.
    QC control by Fiat as you had mentioned is very poor,do your own Qc check with an eagle's eyes and continue to do so every time you leave the car at the a.s.s

    Thanks guys! will compile the experience soon and post it. Took delivery on Friday Jan 3rd. Driven around 250 km so far. Vehicle feels good. Getting used to the vehicle, driving and traffic conditions. Parking is very tricky in the place where I park, its an old apartment. The guys who have planned/built it, didn't know how a car turns in tight spots!

    Hearty congrats for your new possession :up get a reverse parking sensors installed which would help you while reversing and parking. Yes, Punto is a big car in its segment, so it takes time to get used to its dimensions while turning. Still remember words of SA during my Punto's delivery. He told 'Sir, during initial days think that you are driving a sedan. Especially in tight U turns and corners due to Punto's sheer size.'

    Its matter of getting used to it. Don't worry, enjoy revving your beast.

    Congrats for getting home Punto 90hp,
    Yes initially Punto feels like a big sedan to drive,but once you get used to its driving Punto is like a small hatch to drive.
