    Punto has the Engine Immobilizer feature which means the Engine would not start without the correct key. I don't think you'll need gear locks etc when you have this feature.

    No. The immobilizer in FIAT cars is good. The FIAT Code System (FCS) with rolling code is not very easy to crack like those of TATA and Mahindra. The central data base is located in Turin, Italy.

    Do you live or park your car at very theft prone areas?

    I have surely seen gear lock in Punto anyways. I Think Delhi TFI member Shashanknathani or Dilip_dmk has got the gear lock installed. Not sure if its legal to do that and you need to drill holes IIRC.

    In a lighter vein: Since Punto does not appear to be selling too well, car thieves are also less likely to steal such a car. So, an added layer of security???

    I have read somewhere that installing a gear lock requires drilling holes and will void the warranty. So better don't go for that.

    well..i have also installed gear lock in my gp!! it doesnt matter to me if it voids the warranty!! i mean atleast engine warranty is still there which is more important..and theres nothing wrong in spending some 1000bucks more where u have spent over 5L for ur beauty :) yaa the only flaw i faced was that i have to keep the seat only at one place cuz if i try to move it then it may tear the seat cover!! but i have already adjusted it to the level i need!! :) so not much worry unless somebody else whose not a 6ft tall is driving :confused:

    I think only thing which can be sold from a theft Punto are tyres..... :) I don't think anybody would apply extra time, logic to take your punto away. They will prefer to park your car on bricks only.....

    Or agar le bhi gaye to khud hi de jaynge ki bhai iska koi saman nahi bika , aap hi wapis le lo isko.
