Welcome Sanjeev. First I would request you to read the Announcement Section and FAQ.
Congratulation on booking. Do add yourself here(http://www.teamfiat.co.in/forum/sho...-count-how-many-Punto-90HP-are-present-on-TFI) once you get the delivery.
A big no. No need to do anything on paint.
Nothing recommended by Fiat, but good to have RPM under 2K, for first 1K KM run.
Have a look at this section - http://www.teamfiat.co.in/forum/forumdisplay.php?13-In-Car-Entertainment - and this thread in particular - http://www.teamfiat.co.in/forum/showthread.php?1455-ICE-Considerations.
This is most important before taking delivery. Download PDI list from here - http://www.teamfiat.co.in/forum/showthread.php?748-Fiat-Punto-Linea-PDI-Checklist-download.
Sanjeev I think Ravi has answered each & every question. BTW where are you from?
thanks ravi for all the help.
i am actually from odisha and now working with Reliance industries in New Mumbai
Congrats Sanjeev on the GP 90
As mentioned by Ravi, avoid the Teflon coating because - there is no such thing as a Teflon coating. Just a gimmick.
As for the run in , do not baby the car , neither redline it. Keep it in between. The key is being gradual. I would strongly advise you to show the new engine ~2600rpm in a gradual manner even before 1k km's. That is , gradually let the rpm's reach 2500 , then back off slowly. Showing the new engine some revs is important .
Other important thing is to keep varying the rpm's rather than driving at a constant rpm for extended periods.
All the best.
Paji why do you recommend this?
There are many theories for running in but nothing concrete, it depends on what you believe. For me I don't push the car much for the first 1k kms

As Kailash has said , there are many theories.
I believe in a middle range theory. Going not too soft on the engine , neither too hard. A bit of both.
Kedar Paji, one things which everyone agrees on is that on a new engine , varying the rpm's is a must.
I have received my car back yesterday. Fortune have replaced an expansion valve and informed me that they and checked everything and is now the car ac is satisfactory. But I donot feel so.
A new problem has cropped up which never happened earlier. When I put on the AC say @ 21deg the air blows from the central vents, increase the temp to 24deg the blowers automatically get shifted to bottom vents and the temperature also increases drastically as if i have started the heater. Can someone check this in their Epack or 90Hp Punto & confirm whether it is normal.
Also can someone help me with the temperature difference figures between the ACC set figure, actual cabin temperature and temperature at the vent?. This is just to check the cooling pattern inside the car.
