Thanks Phew. With the Brake Dust covering the Alloys, the good thing is it gave me n idea of how the car would look with the stock Alloys powder coated in black Anyway painting the alloys black could solve the problem I guess.
Yes Paddle Shifter I got it. Thanks. I thought of doing it initially but skipped it thinking why the monkey business. Anyways I will do the monkey job this evening. If it was my old santro I would have done it but I don't know why I am hesitant to do any minor repairs myself on the punto.
pretty much but only cosmetically
@srida: There are alloy wheel cleaners available - one of your best bet would be this - Simoniz Brake Dust Repellant Alloy Cleaner. It is available locally for 400 rs a bottle.
the nozzles can be adjusted very easily by using a pin.
what i have done to easily wipe off the black brake dust is i have coated the alloys multiple times with layers of hard carnauba wax.
so whenever i just spray water on it the brake dust easily comes off.
Had asked the SA to check slight squeaking noise from the rear left suspension and seems some issue with suspension and would be replaced under warranty....
Now cos of the replacement, will get the car only tom.
So I got the VIN from my dealer and extracted this info about my TJet+
Version: 3V-1.4-16VTURBO-CF4-EMOTION. PLUS- INDIA
Engine No: 1598087
Production date: 31.05.2011
1. Why is TJet not mentioned anywhere in the version?
2. Age old question - is it OK to pick up a 2.5-3 month old car? Should I get an anti-rust treatment done if rust is a concern for Linea? I'll go for 3M if I decide to do so.
How you decoded the production date, from VIN?
Typical FIAT Car VIN has 20 Characters starting with MCA in which 18th character represents MONTH and 19th & 20th as YEAR
If your 18th VIN Character is G then it represents Month JULY
if your 19th and 20th VIN Character is NZ then it represents Year 2010
Rest of the MONTH Codes are follows
