    Driving at 80KMPH is good and safe enough for my routine office drive. Moreover you lose not much on average speed and time of journey by relaxing or sedating by a touch and go on A pedal. And wait for engine to enter 5 digit figure..

    Meanwhile I had purchased
    1. Coido make tyre inflator (Rs. 1250 approx)
    2. Tubeless puncture repair kit (Rs. 130/-)
    3. Adhesive strip (Rs. 30/-)
    The above now finds a permanent place in boot of my RED.

    I had encountered two punctures where both of them were DIYs.

    1. Rear Left puncture: Found this in my car shed. Immediately removed tyre to find a screw impregnated in the tyre. Needed a cutting plier to remove the screw. So permanently placed the cutting plier after job inside the boot to help me in any puncture which may occur in future.

    2. Last week when I went to chennai I had parked at my relative's place. While starting my journey back to my hometown I found the rear right wheel having less air. So simply moved the vehicle slowly and my BIL found a screw being the culprit. Positioned vehicle to stop for access to repair. Removed the nail with cutting plier and then DIY without removing tyre. So helpful this kit is. Highly recommended to have in your car for peace of mind.

    The ODO now says 14191 KM. The 2nd service is nearing. This sunday a heavy calorie burning session has been planned. My RED has to be washed, polished. Meanwhile I had applied online for FASTAG in ICICI website. Hoping to get on tag soon to have an easy go at Tolls. Fortunate to see that all tolls in TN are covered under fastag.

    @Amit Rox Why so soon? Any problem in vehicle or just following 1 year time gap is earlier?

    No problem at all in the vehicle. Going by conditions in our country, I think it's better to go for service a little bit earlier. Moreover after this I will be following 10k kms service interval.

    This is one of the USP's of FIAT and I too would prefer to stick to the manufacturer recommendation, which would help me keep the overall ownership cost as well low.

    Cheers,
