    It is still a debatable topic weather timing chain has to be replaced for punto 75hp or not. Do consult some expert mechanic and check your timing chain. If it shows any sign of problem then change it.

    Its required only for 90hp vehicles Punto or linea. And not for 75hp punto.

    I'm actually having brake shudder and its noted by my mechanic as uneven wear of disks. If i get the turning done will that not cause the disks to loose its effeciency in any way?

    I mean will its structural integrity still be as good or is it going to be questionable.
    This will be the first time i will get it done
  8. The brake rotors are solid casts with internal grooves.When you turn a rotor,the surfacing is done in microns,hence there is no need to doubt on the structural integrity
