    Thank you vish_al :) , Try placing the windshield mount near your dash such that the carpad is not easily removeable even by you. Also angle the holder a bit away from you this might solve you problem. Also Do not place the mount near the IRVM, in my view here there is lot of movement which may cause the carpad to fall off.. :)

    Thank you punto_emotion.. :)

    Thank you fiatlover.. :)

    Thank you Ravi. Will shortly write up my experiences in the respective dealership threads. :D

    Congratulations Sunith on your choice, i too bought BNW Emotion few days back from KHT. I think you had gone to take a look at the car to stock yard and had posted the pictures of it, on the same day I too had visited to take a look at my car :)

    Nice pictures by the way, i have been little busy and haven't been able to write a review and post pictures. Howz the car doing by the way, except for front bonnet not opening i haven't faced any niggles so far, have clocked nearly 1200 kms with 12.5 in city and 18.5 in highway FE with A/C. Yeah i too face the brunt of tin factory traffic :) So where do you stay ?

    Congratsz SUnith for your BNW Punto.
    Within no time you will find your car clocked more than 1000 Kms thats the beauty of this car.
    Please dont think much about small niggles :) as you can find number of threads about variety sounds krrr.... drrrr... trrr... :D
    Take your ride to open stretch and have test of ABS with EBD ;) amazing breaking.
    Stop on a inclination and have test with torque factor.
    After switching ON AC keep glasses open for atleast 30 Secs.
    Finally feel the steering,awesome feedback(one can read the roads).you will really feel you are driving a car and not playing video game.
    its not a Hatch,but it is called as Hatch ::V

    I am staying in Kasturi Nagar, i too got a june manufactured one (i think KHT or Fiat in general has lot of stock :)). I was bit hesitant to pick a 5 month old car but don't see any serious issue, on the other hand yes these cars have spent lot of time in sunlight and i can see lot of dust accumulated under the windows beading, i don't know how it got in there in the first place.

    I took the delivery on 30th October and yes i took the car for my hometown that's where i clocked most of those kms.

    I too have that dust problem trying to figure out a way to clean that, because after a wash i see if you roll down the window and back up it causes streaks of dirt and water.. :(
    And Good to see that we stay close to some extent ;). I saw GP in a house behind the Pizza Hut PHD near the banaswadi main road, Is that you??

    Thank you nkrishnap. :)
