    The insurance provided for the car is free while buying.So, it is not the Bumper to bumper policy.Future generalli covers only 50% to bumpers,head lalmp and fog lamps which resulted in this high payment!

    Ok. One lesson learnt. Get a zero dep add on during the insurance renewal for that extra peace of mind.

    Dont understand why free insurance from FG doesnt come with the zero dep add on when the cost of free insurance actually equals a new car policy + the add on cost.

    Saturday i went to Ramkay service for my third free service!

    The SA quoted 7500 overall including wheel alignment,balancing and full body lubrication.

    Later i got a call from SA saying that the Brake pads, disc got worn out and it needs to be replaced.As it is matter of braking, i agreed to change that!

    Now my query here is why the brake pads and discs needs to get changed at 30k kms?

    Even i havent faced any issues related to braking till now!

    Fingers crossed to receive the car today with a hige bill amount of 15k

    I am Girish Bharadwaj K, got my punto sport 90HP from Hanuman Fiat mangalore last March 2014.

    Today I completed my second service at vecto motors, bangalore (14500Km), while discussing with one of Vecto sales person, he mentioned that sporty metallic pedals are default in Punto sport (not Evo).

    In my car I am seeing that this sporty metal pedals are missing. So just wanted to confirm whether anyboday faced same issue? If so how can I retrieve it.

    As far as driving of Punto sport 90HP, its comfortable.

    I wish to share one funny incident that happened last week in my Village at Nagercoil:

    One of our relative's son who is studying class 2 stood near my car and asked his brother to take a snap with the Punto.They were keep on taking many pics in all possible angles.

    I went near them and asked the reason for the photography, he replied that "Your car is a sports car that used to play in NFS game".

    Then i realised that, Punto is the first car which we drive in Need for Speed Game(Forgot the version of the game)

    I was very happy to see A fan for my car!

    @vigneshrace : black painted alloy and red body color gel well together. nice mod \m/
    BTW chrome strip looks good as well. Also try to switch to Evo's tail lamp. It looks fabulous on Red Punto. ( i have seen many switched to Evo's LED, few said it throws a MID error, not sure though. Just check it)
