    Yepppyyyyyyyyyy :dancing i got my GP Sport yesterday from Prerana motors, Lal bagh road bangalore.

    Did the PDI: Did not find any issues as such, car was delivered in proper condition.

    Delivery experience: Was very good, SA explained all the features properly and helped me to pair my mobile with the blue and me system and we made calls to ensure the system is working properly. All documents were explained properly and handed over.

    They have promised a reverse parking sensors, but they have fitted rather an annoying sensor. The brand is Circuit i, this shit thing screams 0.5 0.6 0.4 and some animation on the IRVM displaying the same shit what it screams :mad: . Planning to call the dealer today to get it replaced with the FIAT original accessory with just the beeps (i guess it just have the beeps).

    Intitial Impression: I am falling in love with the car :) it drives well and that planted feel inspires so much confidence. Steering is a bliss. The turbo kick is addictive but ensured rpm below 2.5k mark :) (will cross it if my below queries are answered)

    This is the first diesel car i am owning, so getting used to the turbo lag. I feel gear ratios could have been better especially the second gear( i would say its annoying sometime). But above 3rd gear and if you are close to 2k rpm mark the car is a delight to drive.

    Queries: Want to know from gurus what are the precautions to be taken during the initial running period?? Should we keep the car under certain RPM during initial running period? Any measures to be taken during starting or stopping the vehicle?

    congrats on getting the punto home!!
    it would be good to idle it for a minute during first start of the day and before parking it after a drive. second one is more recommended.

    For initial couple of thousand kms do not accelerate/brake hard. Also its important that you take it to different rpms but that should be done gradually without hard foot. no speed limits.

    Enjoy your drive on your new punto!!

    Also, try changing the engine oil in the first service itself, though not required you by FIAT. Happy punting!
