Just wanted to share an update on my driving pattern. Nowadays I pull the 2nd gear till 2500-2700 RPM and after this when I shift to 3rd gear, my 90 HP pulls like a bull. The same behaviour is seen when I upshift from 3rd to 4th at around 2700-3000 RPMs. I am literally enjoying driving my Punto in the higher RPMs, touchwood . Needless to say, it requires more gear shifts and the FE does take a beating, but the fun factor takes the precedence here. NOTE: My driving to office timings are a bit off, so I get less traffic because of which I am able to drive at higher RPMs. Happy driving.
