    Nothing serious.

    I removed everything removable. inside out to make it lighter. Did some measurements.

    Then I had a thought why not paint the small scratch/dent on right door before I put everything back so that I had to cover less. when my brother clicked this.

    @Ganges few days more to say good bye to bumpy ride :D

    BTW loved that reply of yours.:thumbup:

    In the end, we all have some or the other problems with the car but we also love our cars the most. Else we wouldn't have had our id on this forum just to discuss Punto vs Swift stuffs and have a heated argument and debate.

    On that note, no more swift vs Punto arguments.

    From few previous posts by fellow members, I now deeply regret for not buying a swift and instead having bought a sluggish, flawed, and lastly an average car (Fiat Punto 90HP). :D

    Over and out !!!!

    Cheers :thumbup:

    Punto90hp-Sluggishness yes.It takes quite a bit of time from 2nd gear to reach power band which equal FE compromised.

    From day one I believe Punto's gear box is flawed :(. I thought running in would cure it but did not.I don't know what they were smoking while they made this gearbox.
    For a highway cruiser he is bit safe. but for a city commuter there are chances of quick wear out of clutch plates and jerks while shifting especially in first 2 gears.unless otherwise he is seasoned driver.

    But again,it is alright when weight of the car is reduced by 150kg. either fiat swapped this GBox from some other lighter model or there was some goof up.

    I am just putting my thoughts, if anybody feels offended please report it and mods can delete.

    I guess the weight was reduced by removing the anti roll bar and not changing the gear box
