    Hello TFIans,

    First of all thanks a ton to TFI for all the information, checklists and the knowledge shared about FIATs which helped me a lot in decision making and in booking and delivery process.

    I was in the market to buy a hatch since two years but due to some or the other reason, it was getting postponed. Finally in first week of May dad said 'this is the time and you can go ahead and book the car of your choice' as I would the one using it. :D And the budget was set to 7.5 lacs.

    Without making any delay I straight away went to book 2013 refreshed Punto Diesel Dynamic as Punto was always the first choice. But then dealer 'Sky Moto Automobiles, PCMC' informed me that they have 2012 manufactured Puntos in stock and thery were offering me the discounts of around 50-55k. They assured me that manufatured month would be oct-nov and not older than that. And I was in for 2012 model as I could go for Emotion variant with the discounts. I informed them that I would inspect the vehicle in detail first and then only i'll pay the amount and they were fine.

    Paid the booking amount of 50k and booked 2012 Punto Emotion Red on 21/05. The vehicle arrived in dealer stockyard / workshop in Akurdi on monday 27/05. Inspected the vehicle against the TFI checklist and everything was clean and clear. So paid the balance amount and asked them to ahead with registration. And got my beauty delivered on 31/05.

    Already covered 600kms in 4 days and I am extremely happy with the initial performance. Lots of trips are alrady planned with my red hot machine. And as icing on the cake, rainy season is already here. This is gonna be the best rainy season of my life :p. Shall keep you guys posted about the updates. Thanks again everybody.

    its always nice to see more new FIATs on the road.
    I'm also happily surprised that most of the guys on TFI are buying FIATs to start touring . I mean I've never seen people so passionately discuss there travelogues and its not surprising to see FIAT owners being avid travelers as well.

    Looks like both go hand in hand!

    I am aware of the anniversary meet. But I would be going home (Ahmednagar) on friday night. I'll try my best to leave early on Sunday
    and join the party. What time are you guys leaving from Pune? And the meet is on Sunday only or is it on Saturday?
