    Congrats on your booking.

    From what I can recollect you should get the VIN number once it's in transit itself.

    Thanks teky for your wishes.

    I have been told that the vehicle is on transit and they have given that partial VIN. The SA told that the last 3 digits can be revealed only after the vehicle arrives at the dealer stock yard. Also he told me that I can always reject it if i am not satisfied (or) if it is other than AUG month manufactured.

    This is not true. The entire VIN can be obtained even if the vehicle is in transit. Is this the process followed by the dealer?

    Sounds good.

    Now I have got the complete VIN (including the last 3 digits). Yes it is AUG manufactured as promised by the SA.
    The VIN is 'MCA11855E0XXXXXXXHKZ'

    What details I can extract from the serial no 'XXXXXXX'? Please share if you have any idea.

    The vehicle has arrived to the stock yard and will be brought to showroom tomorrow for customer PDI.
    I have the TFI PDI check list with me I can use them to do a PDI.

    As this is my first car and I am not much aware of the automobiles, can some one join me in doing the PDI at Ramkay, Velachery?
    Please PM me you mobile number if anyone from Chennai is interested to join me.
    because I do not want to missout anything during my first buy.

    Hey DRIVER, Yes you are correct. I just have completed my PDI today evening. There were very few observations and it is promised by them that they will fix it during delivery.
    The story went like this.
    Today afternoon, when I came out of my flat to go out, I just saw a guy washing his car (of course it is a punto) inside our apartment. I went to him, introduced myself and told him that I have booked a ER punto and I about to for the PDI today. I requested him if he can join with me for the PDI. Immediately he agreed and happy to join me for the PDI.
    During some conversation, I came to know that he is a fiat-chrysler employee. That was real luck as I did not even think till morning that I can get a guy from fiat to do a PDI for my car.
    I was mentioning about DRIV3R to him saying that he could also have joined if he got a chance to see my previous post. But it is unfortunate that DRIV3R is out of town.
    DRIV3R, Just take her for a spin next week after the delivery and share your views. Anyways I am residing near to you. I would love to hear it from you. :)

    Sure, anytime, only thing I do not know when I will be back to base, currently working from BLR. :)

    Car would be fine, don't you worry. By any chance was the Fiat-Chrysler guy's Punto Minimal Grey(silver) in color?
