    Hi all,

    i just wanted to update and share this extra information about the airbag failure message in the MID, This is happening only when i take a tight right turn (meaning when the steering wheel does more than a full circle during a right turn). Otherwise the message and that airbag symbol does not show..

    However i booked for service at vecto motors on tuesday for today at 2-3pm... But as there was no confirmation from their side since the time i booked, i didn go to the service center..

    my dad had no complaints about the car :eek: He is such a critic when it comes to everything u guys have no idea.. Man he must like this car, Other than him mentioning to me about the Airbag failure message appearing everytime he took a tight turn and asked me to get it fixed.. he didn have anything to say.. !! i still cant get over the fact he didn complain about anything.. Let me remind you all why i am so happy about this .

    i had fought with him to get a fiat punto home for over 2 weeks post which we hardly spoke and even though i got the car a good two and a half months back he till today never sat in my car !!

    What an Eventful Day today has been...

    1stly went to Vecto motors in the morning around 11 am to get the airbag issue sorted out and man looking at the number of cars Vecto motors are dealing with at the moment the do deserve their due credit.

    Big shout out for vecto for dealing with all the burden of being a sole service center at the moment..

    Now i had informed Suresh about me going there and he promptly said please head over and we will check the issue and after a max of 20 mins waiting and spending time with raj29 who was also there to get some suspension issue sorted out, Suresh met me and Surendra as soon as i told him abt the issue headed to the spares room to show me the steering column n sensor and tols me this might be faulty and we headed over to my car and it turned out that was the culprit and since linea columns were in stock the order for a punto column was placed and will be replaced under warrranty as soon as they receive the part.

    Now car issue sorted out. Me and raj29 told a drive in my car so that he assesses the ride and feel of my car to see if there is any difference and he said no issues all seems fine..

    So after dropping raj29 back to the service center headed over to the usual hangout the infamous 3M HSR n i was soon joined by nkrishnap to be later joined by imranhks who came over to get the paint sealant done.. and with Gautam's linea and karthiKK's punto joining the gang it was a mini fiat all over again..

    Lunch done at the usual humble restaurant next to 3m i was all about cars and more cars.

    The BEST part of the day :- DRIVE IN A SKODA Laura VRS - 1.8 turbocharged petrol belting out 160bhp belonging to a teambhpian...

    The rush and urgency the car accelerates is unexplainable.. blown away... Have a BIG smile on my face even now thinking about the drive as i am typing this..

    Adrenaline fix done for the day headed home at around 5pm to get stuck at the stadium due to traffic as today is match day...

    Saturday well spent.. Hope u all had an amazing weekend as well..

    Signing off.. Cheers and God Bless!! :p

    I am wondering, underbody coating is done just to prevent corrosion, what's that got to do with sounds ?

  9. It is like sound damping, it reduces the tyre noise entering the cabin mainly,as well as noise from road.

    Yes rightly said... and Imranhks u got to meet me and drive my car now... to actually feel the difference..

    Even i was lettargic regarding some people saying it has sound deadening properties but i totally agree with them now..

    Now my car is rust proof and less sound proof than before.. MONEY WELL SPENT!
