    Well, my car is due for 2nd service by the end of this month. I am wondering where should I give it. Pandit, Akurdi was good - but it is way too far! :(
    BTW, any idea where can I get Tutela Sc-35 Fluid for my Punto's wipers?

    Well, interesting story again about my second service which was due today -

    I had booked my service appointment for today, 2nd Nov at Acumen - Bavdhan as it is the closest service center I have here. Pandit is way too crowded and is way too far to consider! I had an appointment at 10 AM, so I reached there at 9.57 AM. I was apparently the first one - one very shabby looking person approaches me and asked me what I want. I told him about my appointment and he looked at another equally shabby guy, "Should we take it?" and told - "Sir, leave it here..". I decided to wait for service adviser. Noone was in sight till 10.15 AM. The receptionist lady showed up at 10.15 AM and asked me what it is. I told her that she gave me appointment for today for my second service. She looked very reluctant - and asked me if there is some problem or just regular service. I told her that it is just regular servicing but being second service I would appreciate some knowledgeable person to attend to this as it would involve oil and filters replacement and I asked if Manoj was available. She said he was on leave - in fact she said most technicians are not yet back from their Diwali vacation. Then she asked me if I could bring my car next week so that they all would be there. Looking at her level of confidence I was already nervous - so I asked her if it would still be eligible for second free service as my car complete 1 year tomorrow (3rd Nov). She said that is not a problem - she would take care of that. My running is embarrassingly low for a Punto - close to 2400 in a year (guys, blame it on my frequent travels out of Pune and pathetic, all dug up roads in my area). So she just noted down the details and I left. I am hoping to take appointment sometime next week now and see how it goes. Will keep you posted!

    @manish, i know due to many reasons we can't use our own car but i'll suggest you to drive her. Please don't give such a hard time to your mighty 90hp stallion. Its a hell of a punishment bro! Just 2400kms in year :-O Roads are going to be worst only in our country. Atleast take her on a weekend ride, family weekend for long drive bro. Its is much needed for your beauty!

    Agree - but many months were spent away from Pune, in training from 9 AM to 9 PM. :(
    Anyway - this is my favorite season and hope to take her for long rides once this servicing is done. :)

    It is good that you did not leave the car for service today - better be patient than being sorry :)

    nice color Manish... looks beautiful than the showroom piece I saw. but let the 90Hp beast grunt...let the VGT haul!!! I am also too busy in my work life man, but clocked 1350+km in 5 days after delivery. after hectic and busy working hours, i used to get out with car at 11.30pm alone and return at 2am or later! My parents are getting disturbed with this obsession.. n its still increasing :p

    Yeah, that's what I thought! It's better to get it serviced with experienced people rather than just leaving it there with clueless mechanics.

    Well, it is quite different when you're married and have a toddler! :p
    Trust me - parents are far more tolerant than wife! :)

    Manish please share your review about Acumen Service Center as I fed up with these Idiot Pandit Guys.

    I completed 9200kms on odo of my 90HP in just 3 months. Now I am planning second servicing of my Punto :) so I have to select from Pandit and Acumen :)
