    Hi all, I am new to team fiat. After months of search, finalised to have Punto.
    My running is presently low, but i expect it may rise. So in dilemma of petrol or diesel. But like Diesel due to low running cost.

    Fiat dealer is offering me the below offers.
    1) Nov,2011 made punto petrol, 1.4L emo pk- Actual on road cost is 6.95, Offer @ 5.70 lakhs(Discount=1.25)
    2) Nov,2011 made punto Diesel, 1.3L emo pk- Actual on road cost is 7.49, Offer @ 7.00 lakhs (Dis=0.49)
    Both are white color.

    Kindly advice the worthiness of this offer. What are the extra, shall i bargain from dealer..?

    Check for VIN yourself. Method to decode VIN is available in the forum.

    Last set of Puntos were produced in May 2011.
    A few Tuscan wine Puntos were produced in June 2011.
    Fiat didnot produce Puntos after june 2011.

    It is obvious that the dealer is lying that it is Nov 11 make.

    Check and verify VIN yourself.

    No problem in going with May 11 manufactured model. Try pushing for still more discounts because 49k seems to be way lesser.

    I bought my Punto 1.3 MJD Emotion in Oct-2011 and the VIN ends with HMZ. This means it is manufactured in August-11.
    So your info does not seem to be correct.

    But your suggestion is right.

    @nesamani_27
    Please verify the VIN and date of mfg.

    oh sorry for that. Then the dealer has goofed me up by saying no punto/lineas are manufactured after May 11. I bought my Linea in october.

    If money is a constraint than go for petrol, its very good deal and try to negotiate further on discount if you can.
