    HI guys i have been a TFian for about a month. I own a Exotica Red Punto Emotion 1.3MJD. I got my car last year on my birthday October 20. before Punto we had our first one Fiat Padmini, Maruti Omni, Zen, Ambassador, again a new Omni, then a Tata Indica and now Grande Punto. Among the cars we owned the first Fiat was the most memorable one, our first car, my dad learned driving in that car. And we had that car for about 10 years and we sold it off to scrap. :sad1 bad idea!!! So when it was time i got to choose a car i choose Punto. I did my research on Punto for about 3 months. Reading reviews from internet and comparing it against other cars like Swift,i20,Fabia. From all of these i found out Punto was the best looking,best handling and comfier than all the other ones. ::D After my first test drive i was amazed with the car s handling characteristics, and it was my first diesel car, so the little boost of the turbo near 2000RPM excited me!!! We booked it on Sep 21st 2009 and it was delivered on Oct 20th. Till then the fun has never stopped!!! The car kinda grows on you, the features that we see in Punto and Linea are just amazing, when driving a Fiesta or Swift i am giggling inside it had got no milege calculator, no time or date display, flimsy light stalks :mischievous . but then there are things like plastic quality,lack of spare parts. Still 15000km service interval is great. So i am happy, not happy blessed to have a red hot italian hatch :clapping .
    Punto the Fun Never Stops!!!

    Nice to see all the old Padmini(Licensed model of FIAT1100) owners coming back to FIAT, and not surprised by the feeling they get when they drive a new FIAT. Cause all true FIAT fans know how it feel like. :dance
    Happy FIATing jiji, please do post some pics of your car, it looks superb in the small avatar pic.

    Oomph is the word here jiji! Great looking alloys. Although I don't agree with the front number plate mod, yet a "hat ke" idea. Where did you get the body graphics? Did I say congrats?
