    Thanks Sachin!

    Just read the 2012 PUNTO review in MOTOROIDS.
    Honest review(as per me).Loved the last line--"The Grande Punto creates a sentimental connect with its master, and that’s what makes this hatch so special."

    Drl as reverse light---

    Today fitted two good quality aftermarket DRL to compensate the poor oe reverse light.The result is more than satisfactory.Now the rear parking camera gives a good view at night.

    COMPLETED 6000 km TODAY-------

    Today my car has completed it's 6000th km---in almost 6 months time(due on 16/04).
    Here goes some q&a session---

    1)Am I satisfied with the car------well,yes.
    2)AM I satisfied with the service----well,almost.
    3)What about the mileage----:p,:p,:p.Never got below 18.
    4)What is the max speed I have touched---150kmph.
    5)Best loved quality----I neednot tell that.Everyone knows.
    6)Hate story----Many potential buyers praise the car but actually buy some other car.

    Best cherished (day)dream in this period of ownership----------ONE DAY FIAT WILL BE A SUCCESSFUL BRAND IN INDIA.

    HAPPY BENGALI NEW YEAR('NABABARSHA') to ALL THE TFI-ans.
    Today is PAILA BAISAKH,1st day of the bengali calender.
    Hope this year will bring some good news for the FIAT owners and FIAT itself.

    COMPLETED 6500 Km TODAY---------

    Yesterday went on a short local tour(210km to+fro) with 5 adults + my 12 yrs old son.AC was on for fulltime.Conditions varied from scorching sun(~40) to KALBAISAKHI(15-30 min duration storm with heavy rain,thunder).And I fell in love with my car all over again.
    Returned home and saw the dismal sales figure for the month of APRIL.I felt really sad.This car really deserves more appreciation.
    Today travelled on all sorts of road.4 lane NH41(26 KM at 100-120kmph in only 5th gear),SH,bad single laner & village road.
    The engine guard mildly scratched 3-4 times.This car is more robust than I thought it was.JUST AWESOME.KMPL got 16.5(tripB indicative).

    HERE ARE SOME PICS----

    Forgot to mention one thing.The YOKO ADRIVE is really good(ofcourse there are better options) on wet road conditions.The ABS definitely helped the cause.

    Completed 7000 km---

    Just 11 days and me & my PUNTO travelled another 500 km.Today me & my colleague went to inspect a used LINEA(petrol-EMOTION-DEC.2009-for my colleague).During the upward journey PUNTO return 23.2 kmpl(60-80 kmph+100%AC).My car is running like a dream.Let the bashers bash FIAT,PUNTO is great(GRANDEE) enough to withstand all these bashing.
    My colleague finalised the LINEA at 3.10L.This will be his first car.Am happy to help adding one (used-so what?)more FIAT in our town.THANKS ALL.
