    Congratulations! One question though. I was of the impression that 90HP model has been discontinued in favor of Punto Sports model (which is also 90HP, albeit with a sticker job, chrome touches etc.). I bought my Punto 76HP Emotion sometime in Nov 2012 and I opt for it because the dealers had me convinced that normal 90HP Punto has been discontinued in favor of sports model. Was I misinformed?

    PS: I notice that you have black side mirrors, but no stickers on sides. You had me all confused :D

  3. You have been completely misinformed buddy.
    90 hp sports was a limited edition model, but 90 hp is a model to stay which again started selling after the sports was discontinued. .

    Thank you for the clarification. I'm probably the most depressed human being in this forum today :firey. Coming to think of it, I wonder why I didn't explore the matter further back then :A. May be I was a bit too excited. I love my Punto, it's the best hatch I've ever driven. Period. But 90HP would have been more suited to my use case, which consist mostly of long highway drives. That engine grunt after 120-130kmph is pretty annoying :(

  5. The engine will becime smoother after few thousand kms..the engine for 75 hp feels strained only above 140kmph..
    Si dont worry and enjoy your ride to the fullest buddy

    Hey congrats on the new car. It is a great coincidence. I have also booked the same car and the same color. Am taking the delivery tomorrow. I am really happy for you.

    I would suggest you to go through the team-bhp link on using turbo-charged cars and the article on run-in period, if you have not already seen them.

    All the best.
