    Hi Sandeep,

    Nice to see you here after a long time :).

    Following you @1,25,000 kms in four years, I totally agree with your views regarding the Punto except for an AT. Regarding the photographs they are just amazing.

    Hey.. ;)

    I enjoyed every bit MJD until I was driving for pleasure. But ever since I'm into business...driving every day with in Mumbai for client meetings has taken a toll on me. I'm desperately looking for AT car now, Infact started my hunt for it. SO DESPERATE that I have even considered and taken test drive for NANO AT version. ;)

    Sandeep,

    Maybe you don't recollect but we met during the TFI meet at Khopoli when you made one of those rare appearances. We spoke a bit but whatever we spoke made me realize I did not make a wrong choice with my Punto. Thanks again for the TFI - a minefield of information.

    Good to see that you have kept crossing the milestones - personal and Punto's as well on regular basis. The pics are drool worthy. Can you make another of your rare appearances for the Mumbai meet - I will organize one specifically for you. What Say??

    All the best for your business and search for the AT. Pls I would not bear to see you drive a Hyundai or Honda(newer gens) or Suzuki AT car.

    Hay Sandy good to see you and Grandeur after long time.

    Nano AMT is value for money option and if you are looking for Diesel AT then Zest is the car for you. :)

    If SUV you have Scorpio AT available in the market with very high VFM quotient.

    Wow...Yes we all want to read and see the pictures of Punto, which makes it gorgeous.
    I myself is bit away from forum, but coming to TFI and reading your post made my day.
    Your pictures is one of the biggest reason why I have Red Punto.

    Hey Buddy, I can drive down with pride in my Grandeur to any corner of this country, just to meet friends like you. I myself looking forward for the meet. Seems like ages and miss the fun being around different shades of GP's and Linea's and bunch of best of Fiat buddies like you. Will make the meet happen soon, for sure!!!

    And yes, I myself never wish to see me sitting in any of Japanese or Korean wagon. I have always listened to my heart than mind and it has always pounded for Italian so far!!!

    Thanks Kedar!

    Yes I have taken TD for Zest and it's VERY impressive!!! It will certainly serve the purpose for me. But not quite sure about the TATA's AT gearbox will continue perform well in longer run. Let's see.

    FYI Sandy it is not TATA GB it is FIATs. Magnetti Marrelli Gearbox mated with 90hp Multijet Engine.

    Magnetti Marrelli is owned by FIAT.

    I know about it, but also that...it has been tuned (as far as I know) as per Indian driving style and want to see how well it behaves in long term. But overall, I liked the car a lot for what it has been priced.

    I don't have much budget. But yes, ZEST is Smart choice.
