    Doesn't the punto have a warning buzzer if the headlamps are on after the car is shut down?

    I once saw a swift parked in a mall in Bangalore with its high beam on!
    I thought it serves him/her right for using high beams inside the city in a parking lot! :evilsmile

    Today it is confirmed that the bend to the alloy wheel is not repairable,while doing the job the wheel got crack and cant even weld it.So big dent to pocket now.

    From where can i buy a single OEM alloy?whats the cost?or should i go for steel rims?

    You can buy single alloy from service centers, yes it is bit costly.
    Putting one steel rim doesn't make sense, you can consider replacing all 4 plus rim cover, I think it will fall in same price range.

    Thanks Ravi,
    For steel Rims ,can i buy it from any local shop?
    I remember on the spare wheel we have speed rating,so i should be looking into this info as well while buying steel Rim.?

    I am not sure if you get Fiat steel rim at local garage, and do you think there is big price difference?
    I am also not sure about speed rating on rims/alloys.

    4 steel rims + wheel caps will cost you approx 5400 INR. Better you can get another alloy which would cost you 7k .

    Ravi,
    The problem is that our region don't have FASS.Hence trying local market.

    Shashank,
    Steel rims are so cheap , i never knew that.
    I will think over it.Any specifications about steel rims if i have to buy.R15 size.

    How soon you want them ? It's impossible to get 15inch steel rims of 98 Pcd in local market.
    If you want i can source them tommarow and will try to ship to sangli :)

    Does your spare wheel is of 15inch size or 14inch one ?

    Shashank,

    Let me give a try tomorrow and will confirm you by Sunday.Alloy wheels are R15, so i believe spare wheel also of same size.

    Ganges let me know if you need any help. Check if any TFI member has an extra alloy lying with him.
