    Came back from a visit to TASS today:
    1.Had been there to check the squeaking noise from front right suspension...the service guy was very co-ordial and attended to it excellently...it was some tightening he did & the noise is 100% gone...I was worried it was some major issue...thank God!
    2.He said 15K interval for oil change is fine & they put Selenia in can only...no drums...
    3.He checked oil viscosity & it was fine and advised against changing oil now unless I have no problems with unnecessary cost...
    4.That service guy was recently PROMOTED from tata to fiat and was so happy about it...He also said he enjoys servicing FIAT's unlike earlier Tata's...he was willing to talk more than me & was proud of his job...:)

    One interesting thing I need to share...

    I used(still have it)...a Yamaha RX-135 bike before I was Punto'ed..

    I rarely used Maruti 800..as my bike was much pleasure to drive..

    Everyone knows how good these RX machines are...

    Mine is a 2002 make and it still starts with just one kick..even after 15/20 days of idling @home..

    Very very less maintainance and the bike still looks brand new...

    I was very passionate about my bike..still am..'

    But once I had Punto,my RX was sidelined and its doing about a km/day around my home instead of usual 50 to 60..

    I'm proud to be owning to world class machines..both are such a hoot to drive...

    Any RX fans here?

    I went for a full body wash today...

    Amazing thing was the person who washed my car & dried it...and the end of cleaning ...went about 10ft from the car and looked at it from different angles...and said .."Sir...this Punto car is so beautiful..even while washing its smooth everywhere"....


    I just smiled...!!

    Had been to Aadya tdy

    Guyz over there confirmed Fiat showroom in Queen's road B'lore by Aadya...by November

    Service centre somewhere near Mekhri circle...

  8. That is a good news for Bangalorians.Was hoping they come up with the service centre somewhere near yelehanka.

    Decided on a quick trip to Nandi hills ..and went yesterday...

    Let at 10 am in the morning..and reached by 11:15..

    Was caught by Traffic police on BIAL road for overspeeding ..I was not actually ..I was at 100..but max limit was 80 on that road..

    Rules is rules..so payed Rs 300 fine..

    Road is top class till Nandi hills...after deviation from B'lore Hyd highway..its all green out there..with Nandi hills in your view all the while..


    Climate was very good..very chilly at the top..which is about 4000 ft above sea level..

    Had lunch ...been to some view points and returned back..


    On the return back bought lots of vegetables & black grapes...:)

    Hey nice pics! Yeah, drive to Nandi hills is a enjoyable one. And yes, these days cops are pretty strict regarding speed limit on Blore airport road. Thanks to few fools who used think this road as a race track !!! :punch

    And I believe Queen's road showroom is all Tata. FIAT Aadya is coming up near Mekhri Circle only ( next to Shell I guess )
