    I was surprised to see so many Puntos in Hubli-Dharwad area. In fact saw some brand new cars also for delivery or for registration. :)

    I was in Hubli on 15/16th & 24/25th May. I passed thru the HD bye pass on 19th & 21st. I saw these cars most probably on 15/16th when I was shuttling between Dharwad & Navnagar. These cars came out some where from below the railway bridge. One was Blue and other white. Both were not registered.

    Why? Now, there are no dealers for Fiat in Hubli-Dharwad ? Manicbag has stopped Booking Fiat ?

    spotted a red punto number ending 1172 near BTM layout indian oil petrol bunk @ 9:20
    The car had a black cladding on the rear bumper with a essesse badge instead of the variant name.
    Aftermarket alloys as well.

    Are you on TFI dude?

    PS : I was 2 car lengths behind you!! :)

    you might have seen this car from the definitive forum :The Red Rocket - Fiat Grande Punto Sport. *UPDATE* Debadged & Rebadged to Abarth - Page 24 - Team-BHP
    his alloys are not aftermarket but painted OEMs so i am not so sure if you saw his car only. as far as I know he is not a member of our forum.
