    Many thanks miteshpunjani, zen, bala & gurjinder for your wishes.

    Ofcourse, you would not have noticed me DRIV3R, becos I used to go by my honda 2 wheeler and seen you & your vehicle and was jealous about your punto ;) :D.
    I am also a km away from DLF IT SEZ. To be specific, just opp side to Sakthi nagar bus stop. I would love and honour to join you guys in the near future. May be very soon.

    Thanks Praveen ! Tuscun wine is good one too. I personally like that color.
    Congrats to you too :)
    Can you please post a picture of your new wheels.
    Which variant you have? if it is Emotion, shouldn't that be 195/60 R15, else it has to be 165/80 R14. do correct me if I am wrong.

    Congratsz for your Punto Redpoint.
    Here is the thread for which you should keep an eye open:- Engine Compartment.

    Gain some basic knowledge on :-
    1. Engine oil
    2. Filters:- Fuel,oil and AC Pollen.
    3. Tyre Pressure.
    4. Gear Change in proper Torque bands(if you dont know this people mislead that, it is sluggish).
    5. Proper Service schedule

    Enjoy!!! looking forward for your Red Chillie.

    Sure livelyyoungman. Will do for sure.

    I have just got a partial VIN. I have been told that the last 3 digits (month & year) will be notified only after the vehicle is landed in the stock yard. But the SA assured me that it will be august month manufactured.

    MCA11855E0YYYYYYY

    From the above VIN, I can extract the below details.
    MCA : FIAT INDIA
    11855E0 : 1.3-JTD-75CV-CF4- EMOTION
    YYYYYYY : Serial Number

    Apart from this, as admitted by the SA I am expecting the last 3 digits to be 'HKZ'. Is there anything more I can get from the serial number?

    Guys, can you please validate the above? Pls do correct me if i'm wrong.
