    Got my BNW Fiat Grande Punto 1.3 Emotion on 22nd Jan, so this is a delayed (400 kms+) Introduction post :)

    Love the car so far.Am driving after a gap of 8-9 years, so getting used to what feels like the Starship Enterprise compared to my dad's Premier Padmini :car

    People don't believe that the car is a Diesel and the car is a headturner.

    Had narrowed down my list of choices down to the fully loaded Ford Figo diesel and the Grande Punto 1.3 Emotion which was a bit more on the wallet.Didn't want a Maruti as I didn't like the steering feel.

    Loved the Punto's steering feel, suspension and ride and the phenomenal looks.Loved the Ford's driveability,space and overall VFM.

    What finally swung the deal in the Punto's favour was the realization that I'd never get tired of the way it looks, so that'd probably save cash on an upgrade 3 years down the line ;) - Some decisions are best taken by the heart

    On a more serious note loved my experience at Wasan - the Fiat Sales guy was very patient and helpful so went ahead and bought the car from them.In fact, a bad dealer experience at Ford was the reason i decided not to go ahead with the Figo and look at options.

    The fact that there were so many hardcore Fiat fans on teambhp and here on the forum helped overcome the general perception about TASS's support.

    Glad that I switched!

    Cheers! And happy driving!! :up

    (Have had a rodent get intimate with my ABS cables and battery some time ago but no other hiccups so far!)
