    @Saket Sidana @Amit Gandhi I am planning to book an Evo this month. Magnesio Grey, Glitterati Gold and Pearl White are my options. I've not seen any Gold Evo cars in this forum. Why isn't anyone going for it? Magnesio Grey looks awesome. If James Bond were to drive a Punto it would be this colour as it somehow reminds me of 007. Coming to my third choice, the pearl white colour. Is it metallic? I don't know how white can be a metallic colour. Does it look even more impressive than in the pictures?

    @ Aniket Dessai, We have a GG Evo as TD car at AV Motors here and it's more than an year old. The car somehow looks dull.
    Also are you planning 90HP, if yes then from the info I have Red and Black are out of stock, only a few cars in M Grey were available (this info was from the factory stock sheet, dated last week of Nov). The dealership did mention that white was in stock though.
    Pearl White is a Non metallic from what I know.

    Cheers,
    Pradeep.

    I have chosen RED color and got delivered on 27th Nov. Only concern for me is the mileage . I'm a learner and drove almost 500KM - mostly in city . Getting on avg mileage of 7KM/lt. Most of the time I drove in 2nd and 3rd Gear. Planning to go for longer drive on this x'mas holiday and thought of checking the mileage on highways.

    Also accidently drove the car aroun 5KM on Handbrakes . Will it have impact on Engine Performance ?

    No it won't impact engine but definitely to brakes. Wait for at least 2K kms to complete. Post that you can start noting fuel efficiency.

    @ kumar2005,

    Your Punto is absolutely fine. 11kmpl when mostly driven in gear 2& 3 is good FE. The car is just 500km old so let it settle down. You did mention that you are still learning so that possibility of riding with the clutch is more, so the FE would be on the lower side.
    You will slowly come up the learning curve, and FE too would improve with time.
    On the hand break part, 5km is short so don't worry too much about it. FIAT cars do come with an audible alarm when being driven with hand break, so kindly start paying more attention to the alarms, the warning symbols and messages on the dashboard too.
    Enjoy your drive and the car, nothing to panic or be concerned about at this point of time.

    Cheers,
    Pradeep.

    @kumar2005 Depending on traffic conditions that is actually a good FE that you are getting :) Do not go by ARAI rated figures - FE is far lower than what is being claimed for all car manufacturers and more so if you are driving only in 2nd or 3rd gear.

    p.s. The i20 Elite does not have a mileage reading to avoid such problems :)
