But OTR Price sounds too much. It seems you have bargained too little. There's too much of discounts going on.
Discounts are hard to come by with Bangalore dealers. My head spins with frustration when I see the discounts offered in Chennai. It's a real steal to buy there right now. The price of Powertech has also been increased from the old Punto Evo's.

Yes, but no vehicle or color is worthy enough for being harassed by the dealers. I feel let down mostly by the way the dealer has been handling me after booking. They have been thoroughly unprofessional. Today, they had the audacity to call me and demand an additional 1L as the booking amount for the red vehicle. I rejected and asked them to cancel the booking. Then they budged. Now they have sent a partial VIN No. with the last three digits (Month and year info) scraped. I feel that I have booked the right vehicle with the wrong people.
Finally, after all hassles, arguments, mails and continuous pestering from my end for the full two weeks, my Red Punto Evo has arrived in the yard. The color pops eyes in all wonder and is consuming me piece by piece. It's an August 2016 Powertech Emotion model. Basic inspection is done. Ready to be delivered by Wednesday. So excited!
