    • Congrats sid, I can say this is the best wheel cap in Steel Rims in Punto, looking fabulous. Looks like linea 16" alloy wheel.
      Fiat OEM speakers are one of the worstmost part Fiat has provided. Myself also changed all speakers with JBL 6.5 inch CS6, sound changes drastically. Bass/Treble enhanced significantly.

    Better get a temporary registration number until then that is valid for 1 month. This TC number plate is for dealer use only and for short time, like a day. A TC plate on a car with an owner might invite a challan (if caught by Police) as it's illegal.

    That's a bummer. Trade Certificate plates are not temporary registration plates.

    And the rules clearly state that a dealer cannot sell a vehicle without temporary/permanent registration. What did the dealer say.

    Cheers.

    Good to see you here Sid. Hope you will add the same kind of value over here as you did there. I really enjoyed your posts there.
    Congrats on the smashing car. Buying a second Punto demonstrates the faith you have in FIAT.

    As Shams rightly said - welcome home

    Cheers,
    Rajan

    PS - IIRC, Sid was a distinguished member and not a mod, in the other forum
