    I know, u din notice the P.S :)
  2. It's not the outright power that counts always.Suspension setup, highway stability and high speed cornering ability gives Punto(any FIAT) edge over many cars with more powerful engines.

    And Shashank you are absolutely right about getting better with age part. Every 1000kms i cross, i feel like the car has more power and my FE too is steadily improving.

    Welcome to TFI.

    Hi Shashank,

    Welcome Aboard!! Even I Have a Active 1.2 Medium Grey !! Unbelievable but true - My Car beats the shit out of all the 1.3 Emotion Packs also. It has happened one too many times when we Punters Meet here in Mumbai and drive down to Various places....

    Thank You guys for your responses.......

    @Atul : I agree with you completely... Of all the vehicles i drove on highway, I liked Innova when it comes to high speed cornering after Fiat... I cannot imagine taking a curve above 100kmph on any Maruti or Hyundai... Not even Verna...

    @Ratan : Thats awesome.... I also drove 1.3MJD many a times... I feel they both are kinda similar under 2000 RPM... and once you cross that... it all depends on your driving... as i personally touched 160 kmph on my beauty and feel that it is capable of even a bit more, but my conscious does not allow me to go beyond that.....

    Two small accidents in a span of 20 days.... :A :A :A

    My car is in Malik Cars getting treatment for injuries because of my mistake.....

    January 16th: While taking out from parking, Wifey dented "the rear left door, rear left quarter panel and rear bumper :hit :hit ". Took the car to Concorde and Insurance claim. Got the car back on 25th January. I had to miss FIAT Funday because of that.

    February 14th: While taking out the car from parking, I dented "the rear left door, rear left quarter panel and rear bumper :hit :hit ". Car is presently with Malik cars and getting treatment. They promised the delivery on Friday evening, i wish i get it back before Sunday. I don't want to miss the TFI Meet... :hit :hit

    Even the Insurance surveyor laughed at my situation and said "Sir, even old pictures look exactly the same, only difference is the date on the pictures"

    The estimate is same and it is ~14000 INR....
  8. My God, both incident, place (?) and damage are one & the same except for the dates.

    It hurts. Sad to hear....

    Shashank sorry to hear about the accident that also at the same place its hurtssss, next time change the parking place of your car.
    Mine is also a Punto 1.2 actice and am very happy with it, Once when we had been to Nashik i had given Honda City a hard time on the highway but on the straight stretch he used to overtake me, but on curves i used to be ahead of him and the fellows in Honda city were surprised, they have also asked me at the tea staff that what is the CC if the car, when i said its 1.2 they were shocked and were admiring punto......

    Dude sorry to hear about the accidents.

    But, don't you think that its the parking spot that is a problem. You know the problem and you are repeating the mistake. Maybe, you should park in reverse direction and always start the car moving in the forward direction.
