    Hey Guys
    Finally got my hands over the Abarth Punto few hrs ago.

    I must say fiat has done a great job in powering this punto. I was able to cruise thru 0-100 on the second gear with ease.
    Didn't feel any kind of power lag whatsoever.

    Felt safe and sound even while pushing her thru speeds of 150+

    I must say it's a great powerful hatch on Indian Roads and am sure going to rip her soon

    What I liked:
    Power top class
    Breaking is awesome typical fiat
    Suspensions are too good. Better than my Grande punto or Ago
    Ambient lighting cud have been better like linea.
    Alloys are superb

    Dislikes:
    The front and rear fog lamp cluster shld have been in chrome
    No auto headlights
    No rain sensing wipers
    No cruise control
    No sporty paddles
    Apollo tyres.

    A guy in my company knows about the launch of a Punto with red stickers and he says that Maruti has the same type of car from the Swift....:banghead::banghead::banghead: and i'm in an Automotive Service company :banghead::blackeye:

    Maruti Suzuki bhakts live in their own world. For them, a car that gives 40 kmpl mileage with bicycle tyres and dalda-ka-dabba sheet metal is a great car.

    A lot of those bhakts will reject one of their own( better built) S Cross 1.6 for a mileage champion like Ciaz.

    This one is good. Pretty similar to our political scenario. Aam Junta seems to wants something but Intellectuals live in their elevated space...

    Slightly Off topic:

    Has anyone tried the Blue&Me Configurator tool on the Abarth Punto . I am trying to find out the version of BnM used .
    Source: http://www.blueandme.net/blueandme/index.aspx/index.aspx?brand=fga&lang=en#/support/download/

    Choose : Start update > Step 1 .

    Download and extract the following file onto a FAT32 format USB drive.

    http://www.blueandme.net/resources/download/configurator/BlueMeConfigurator.zip

    Insert the drive into the USB slot and it will generate an XML file with the car details.
