Hi everyone, Myself Vamsi from Bangalore. Firstly, thanks to @theblack who told me about TFI. About my experience behind the wheels, it's all started at the age of 13 with my dad's LML vespa and got myself behind the 4 wheels on Maruthi OMNI at the age of 15. I did good amount long drives on the Alto and so my ZMR too. I do like to do much on 2 wheels, but that doesn't turned out to be suitable option to conquer my passion of touring due to dust allergey, etc, etc health problems. Alto is meant for daily commute is a no no for some real touring. Anyways, EOD, it is my parents car which they would need all the time to go around in the small town - Tirupathi. But I recently managed to do BLR-CHKMANGALUR-SHIMOGA-SIGANDUR- AGUMBE - KODECHADRI - BANGALORE on the same Alto. Yeah, its close to 900km in just a weekend. Too much for such a car and my back warned me. Even the safety department is no where close to what is required in long drives. After all, Alto is not meant for that. I had enough lessons with my ZMR too to decide that it is not going to be the one which can accompany for some real long rides. Once, I drove to Coorg back and forth on the same day just to enjoy the drive.. Yeah, I did enjoyed being behind the wheels and I somehow felt 4 wheels would give more smiles on my face and so the confidence. Another big thing, my parents have lot of confidence in my car driving but they are not really happy with me when it comes to 2 wheels. I hardly share about my bike rides at home. Slowly I thought I shouldn't be doing that and the frequency of bike rides came down drastically. Now I am looking for a 4 wheel machine which is solid, very comfortable, and has lot of confidence in itself on the road. That explains why I am here!!. Done lots and lots of research to decide the budget and so the segment. When I nailed down to the world of hatchbacks, ofcouse everyone out there starts with the options like i20 and swift. I am no different. I would probably share in detail on how I arrived at Fiat finally in my first ownership review ( excited to get behind the wheels, but nothing on the paper yet ). I always know the strong points of fiat when compared to other cars in the segment. Just that I took more time to decide my criteria to choose. I finally decided to go for hatchback and that too the mighty 90 scorches from Fiat's table.. No need to mention, it's Punto 90hp Emotion - hip hop black ( I am thinking about a name.. but will mention it in my first ownership report ). ---- Hero Honda Passion plus - 2007-2011 - 30,000 kms - Soldout Dad's Alto Xfun - 2005 - till date - 40,000 kms Karizma ZMR - May2012 - till date - 21,000 kms Punto 90 HP.... Confidence determines the power of needle on the speedo..
