    Well seatbelt is a mandatory feature and even the most basic to the top variant has it. If ABS was mandatory then there wouldn't be an Active version for Fiat or any basic model from any Manufacturer. Thats is what I was trying to say. It may be a necessity for many, but not for everyone who cannot afford it.

    Thanks Ravi for opened this thread for further discussion, and thanks for all TFI members who helped me to make decision on this Purchase. Very special thanks to Ramjn, who referred Raman and Raman helped me to get my requirement without any major compromise. Now I have booked 2012 Punto Emotion medium gray. Initially my plan is to buy Dynamics 1.3 then my options changed to Emotion. This is a quick update. I will share other details later.

    This is strange. Don't know if Fiat has discontinued the Medium Grey color. Check with the dealer on the VIN of your vehicle. That will tell about the Month and Year of manufacture of your car.

    Yes ramjn, not sure why this color is missing now in fiat India website. I spoke with SE and he said they placed order after I done with booking. Now that color reached and it is in ambattur Chennai. I asked him to check and confirm, why this confusion in fiat website. I have planned to take delivery on Aug 9th. So PDI will be before that. That time I will check with VIN. I will also try to find why this color is not available in fiat India web site or discontinued by fiat. If anyone know detail about this, please let me know.

    Why do you want to wait till PDI to know the VIN. Ask the dealer for the VIN. They must provide the VIN if the vehicle has arrived and invoiced to the customer.
