    THANKS TONY!Actually it's my PUNTO which did the job,I just helped.My colleague had been greatly impressed with my PUNTO and when he checked the LINEA he immediately fell for it.Naturally:D!

    The car has been delivered 3 days back.Here is an interesting incident.The rear left light was broken.A reputed local ws was contacted for the purchase of a new one.Yesterday the person(ws owner) ordered the light(from a spares shop at kolkata) at about 11am and it(the light) reached HALDIA at 8:15pm(by a route bus/KOLKATA-HALDIA).
    FIAT aftermarket spares(some if not all) of LINEA(hopefully of PUNTO too) are now easily available even at KOLKATA.:).

    Right said, the spares of Fiats are easily available with the local spare parts shop, (Mumbai)
    In other ways it says that FIAT has been accepted by the INDIANS......
    Slow and Steady always wins the race...

    Yesterday completed 7500 km while returning from office.

    As I mentioned my car is running wthout any problem--so far so good.And my driving style has become aggressive---at least on turnings.
    It's really fun,to take a turn.FIAT has started working very aggressively in INDIA and that infused a great degree of confidence in me as a FIAT/PUNTO owner in INDIA.Thanks all.

    I am planning my first long tour by my 'FIRST DIESEL CAR' in the 1st week of june.I toured extensively by my two previous WAGONs(PRIMEA&VXI-ABS).My last long tour was to Panchmari-MP(also covered KANHA,BHEDAGHAT,SANCHI--etc.).Me and my friend (who now owns a PUNTO ACTIVE mjd)covered ~3500km in 12 days.Here are the two cars at Sanchi.

    Now what are the precautions to be taken in case of PUNTO that will cover upto 6000ft altitude(in the great HIMALAYA)& ~1800km in 5 days?
    Is there any precautions to be taken(regarding the car) while driving for hours at a stretch.Usually I maintain my car to the best possible way.
    Pl help.THANKS ALL.

    All the very best for the Tour,
    Take with you lot of water and just check and top ups the levels if required. All all will be fine, yeah do check the spare tyre and tool kit.
    Awaiting to hear from you the Travelogue.
    For sure you and your friend will never repent on the Punto...
