    500 ml bottle comes easily in center bottle holder and some 1 lts bottle comes nicely in driver side door.
    I never find this as any big issue.

    Hope they fix these issues with the upgraded versions coming next year.

    If I place half a litre bottle, it sort of hampers easy access to AC vents. What I meant was, the car definitely deserves a proper bottle holder on the front doors at the least.

    A bit of stats

    ODO as of today - 10928 kms

    Avg Kms per day - 81.55 kms

    Closing in on 11,000 kms mark. The car is performing as expected apart from the irritating tyre noise.

    Why dont you try out this? It doesnt hamper any of the driver's ergonomic movements while operating ACC. Its a Mogu Mogu juice 330 ml bottle available at Shell outlets. I bought it only for the sake of Punto and emptied the contents immediately after opening the bottle. It tastes weird, so my friends were surprised as to why the hell am buying this juice :evilsmile

    This a work around for the bottle holder, no doubt. But the intention of the frustration is why should I be doing all this after paying 11 lakhs? This is sort of a pre-requisite to give bottle holders in this country. What I do now is use the Tupperware half a litre bottle and keep in the seat pockets. And I get really irritated when something hampers the gearshift movements :D

    Mogu Mogu - is a Japanese drink. They are in India?... Thank you for the info. Japanese drinks/chocolates are of weird taste.

    Looking to upgrade the audio with the below config. Can somebody let me know if this needs to be tweaked.

    1. Cerwin Vega HED 65cs 6.5" component speakers
    2. Cerwin Vega HED 525 5.25" rear speakers
    3. Cerwin Vega HED 600.4 4 channel amplifier
    4. High input wiring + amp + speaker cabling (forgot the brand, i guess its bose)
    5. Door damping with 3M door dampening material
    6. Cerwin Vega HED 124 12" inch subwoofer + box

    Let me know if something needs to be tweaked in this.

    Note: I am not changing the Head Unit to retain the Blue n Me functionality.
