    Great work.

    In the foggy photo , i almost shuddered to see the FIAT equipped 165 section tires in the Punto.

    Whenever you may want, just upsize to atleast 185 70 R14. Those 165's are scary.:-?

  2. thanks Gurjinder, yes the climate was just awesome that can`t wait to click a snap of my white angel.
    yes even i was shocked when Sale executive conformed me that 2011 model punto emotion come with 165 tires instead of 175 :uh. the tires and alloys will be updated sometime later.

  5. AC not working and Gear shift issue

    Hi Guys,

    need help,
    1. today i notice that my car AC is not working(i mean its not chilling) can hear some hisssss.. noise when putting AC. I know its a known issue with punto. But i want to know what could cause the issue.

    2. Gear shift is not smooth, this was notices from quite some time. But recently i was in a traffic jam and i could not push the gear to 1 or 2. :(

    3. Some rattling sound from Driver side door, when keeping music to level 15+

    4. My car is May 2011, i m thinking to check for CSC change basically want to know if its plastic one or metal one. Just to cross check, as i m planning for a long drive this month end :)

    I know i need not to panic for the above issue, but i really worry if i need to wait for spare parts. :( If need any change.

    I have booked a appointment with Prerana Motor Hosur road for this Saturday.

    Can any TFI member of Bangalore suggest any Good SA(Service Adviser) name of Prerana Motor Hosur road.

    Hi Drive_drift, One thing I have noticed in the 15 days of my possession of Punto is that the clutch is very deep. We have to really push the clutch completely to change the gear. This seems to be the way clutch-gear thing works in Punto.
