    Welcome Bro
    Nice pics, and good modifications. Especially the one with mustache on the back (3rd pic) looks unique.
    Do post the pic of the gear knob.
    How's your experience with FASS.

    Enjoy the luxurious ride.

    The alloys in first pic look different from those in other pics. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Thankyou Bro, Appreciation means a lot :D
    And yeah you're right about the alloys :/
    Used them for about 2 odd days. They needed some serious cleaning !
    Due to lot of brake dust, changed them within 2 days :shame:

    About FASS,
    Speed Fiat Chandigarh, They do help but takes a lot of time for little things.
    For Example, I was planning for Black Vinyl Roof so wanted to get rid of antenna,
    I thought i should go and talk if Executive can help, Instead he said you can get it done from the Vinyl guy or come tommorow :/ Obviously i know i can get it done from outside but i wanted them to do it for me.

    During first service i was charged around 2k for alignment and balancing and oil top ups. This is my first Car and i don't have much knowledge about what to do and what not, So according to me take someone experienced with you if you're going to FASS.

    I had some issues too, But they were resolved automatically or by me, FASS never helped about any of those !

    Heartiest congratulations on the Punto. Your profile read 1.2 where as your post says 1.3. Which is correct one bro? Get the wrong one corrected please.

    You I guess are the only person to say that Punto has a super smooth clutch. Till date of my 2.5 yrs of 1.3MJD ownership, I never felt the clutch smooth. How about the clutch travel, are u Ok with it?

    31.2 kmpl is an absolutely fantastic mileage man. Keep the mile crunching and drive safely.

    Ohh its 1.3 MJD Active,
    Actually this is my first car and Never TD any of the cars out there instead of swift (That too of my friends new bought one)
    Punto's Gear shift and clutch is waaaaay better than Swift's !
    Maybe i'm used to the clutch travel :D
    One thing i've noticed is that if you keep the RPM above 2.5k for First three gears there's negligible Turbo lag, The only thing is other cars go Vroooooom in First two gears whereas Punto starts showing its colours in 3rd to 5th gear !

    Congratulations on the car and the mileage of 31.2.
    The FASS SA was ready to sell 1.2 Active at 4.75 OTR during last 2015 Dec offers, here in Trivandrum.
