    Hi , Good evening I am Rajneesh from Indore M.P. first of all thanks to Team Fiat for activating my account.

    Great feeling to be a part of team full of Fiat enthusiasts.

    My Vehicles - Gypsy King MG 413 W driving since last 14 years & recently became proud owner of Fiat Punto 90 hp.

    The forum has been quite instrumental in my purchase of Punto 90 hp. Already had one Punto 1.2 petrol in family rock sturdy car was confused between 76 hp & 90 hp finally went for 90 hp.

    Great car to drive.

    :D

    Finally a car Punto 90 hp

    Hi Thanks to all senior members for their wishes and response.

    Let me give you a bit of background what made me purchase the Punto 90 hp.

    There had been two machines which I thought I should have owned but couldn't may be they were ahead of their times or I didn't had the money at that time.One was RD 350 two stroke twin the sound was sheer music to your ears and the torque I still believe no modern expensive toys in India can match it. The other was Palio 1.6 sports petrol which again will make your heart go boom once you press the pedal.Again both discontinued in India.Still I was happy with by MG 413 W great machine good torque no major problems regular servicing and machine is fine but off late people have refused to sit on rear prison benches of Gypsy so mostly when with friends and family tough choice who will sit at back.

    I have been saving money for last so many years to buy a descent family hatch meanwhile my brother brought in a Punto 1.2. took a drive and the car was quite impressive very comfortable steady on highways and last but not the least never seen the owner complaining about any service issue , etc in three years one happy car owner . Finally when we decided to buy a family hatch entire family was unified on a fiat other had different ideas. Was told by every second person not to go for a fiat as they had service issues , poor resale value outdated models very few features. Kept quiet to all these suggestions as nobody could change my mind bcoz had been driving a car from market leader in India and was well aware of how they treat their customers post sale of their cars. Spares -forgot about the spares order at MGP pay advance wait for fifteen days or may be more.Service at ASS forget it nobody will touch a Gypsy and if they do something then you had it things will become worse. As if you have done a crime buying their vehicle 'now please suffer we told you so". So every town you are transferred or shifted search for a whimsical specialist who will be a old timer from Maruti opened his own workshop with lot of stories from old glory days will be happy to see your gypsy in his garage and boast to his fellow mechanics how great the car is and how great a works man he is. That is the price you have to pay if you want to live with passion for good things.:)

    So finally decided on Punto 90 hp probably in a way had a dream fulfilled of owning a 1.6 sports although the car is nowhere near the 1.6 sports but with age catching in you start loving things in a refined manner.Posting a few pictures of the old and the new.:) Gypsy.jpg DSC_0964.jpg DSC_0958.jpg DSC_0959.jpg DSC_0961.jpg

    Always a pleasure Rajneesh.Seems you are also a great fan of Valentino & you are the first fan i came to know on TFI.Ya i too would love to see him on Podium at Aragon but its tough,hoping for the best because in misano test he got a solution for his bikes braking issues because of which he's home race was also ruined without a podium finish.I m also a great fan of Late Marco Simoncelli & Reigning Motogp champion Jorge Lorenzo.
