    It is funny, true frustrated owner. I didn't know Honda have service interval of 3 months It's even worse than Kinetic gearless 2 wheelers :evilsmile

    Build quality of fiat is strong. I know it because my rear bumper is favorite of Suicidal tendencies bike drivers and Indica.

    Re: Punto 1.2 Integrated audio system and alloy wheels

    @Arun Chak- You can either upgrade to 14-inch alloys or 15-inch alloys. The choice is yours. Only thing is that if you want to upgrade to 15-inch, you will have to change the tyres as well for sure. And you will have to either buy 5 alloys (if going for aftermarket alloys) or in case you are looking for FIAT Punto OEM alloys in the local market (you can get 4 Punto alloys for anything between 5k-20k), you will have to either buy a Linea steel wheel which is 15-inch or retain the 14-inch Punto spare tyre but change the rubber to maintain the overall tyre diameter.

    Regarding ICE, what is your budget? And what are your priorities? Are you willing to sacrifice your boot (by placing a sub-woofer)?

    Since you have Emotion variant, you can very easily retain the Head Unit and can either simply upgrade the speakers (all four speakers will have to be upgraded for best results) or upgrade to speakers plus get a subwoofer and an amplifier as well.

    Re: Punto 1.2 Integrated audio system and alloy wheels

    I would suggest wait until your existing tire totally wear out and while you get new sets of tires. Upgrade it to 15", the drive quality is more fun and commendable on Punto.

    Budget for alloys depends on brand. You may get good design and decent alloys starting Rs 14k (4 alloys) onwards. As PaddleShifter suggested, you don't need to buy 5 alloys. Just get 15" steel rim from Fiat service center it will be cheaper and use only when it is required.

    Regarding Music, it all depends on taste and budget. That;s why I suggested you to go through the entire thread. That will help you understand the options and choice as per your taste and budget.

    Re: Punto 90HP - Query

    Thanx vijay. But what about FGT version.
    Is their turbo lag in FGT version when we drive FGT as pedel to metal ? ::O

    Please clarify. Because even I own FGT, Iam not getting the real performance of FGT.

    Performance of my FGT is changing daily. :A ::OO :confused

    Even Mr.Anaz of TATA Motors Pune is unable to understand "Exact" problem of my car.

    Funny thing is Mr.Anaz (Customer head of TATA Punne) owns Indica V2.

    Owner of Indica V2 certifys that my Multijet is OK. ::OO

    Airbag requires more big impact to open & inflate it
