As we all know, our community has few members with ownership of Grande Punto.It would be glad if you all can discuss all the pros,cons,+ve's,-ve's in one single thread, your likes dislikes, improvement all in here which would be easy for all other members to read and know this car better.
Also you all can discuss the technical aspects, ASS part, everything.

Re: Grande Punto Thread

I was thinking of not making such a vehicle specific thread. But since this already exists, why not use it to discuss our Puntos? I invite all Punters to join in & share experiences, pics, problems & solutions in this one-stop-for-all Punto thread.

Till now, I recollect the following Punters in TAI. If i have left someone, please add your name to the list-

raj_5004 = Punto 90 hp = Mumbai
dharmesh = Punto 75 hp = Mumbai
DriveNinn = Punto 90 hp (coming soon) = Mumbai
vroom = Punto 75 hp = Mumbai
Grandeur = Punto 75 hp = Mumbai
KinghtRiderGT500 = Punto 75 hp = Mumbai
JazzSelect = Punto 75 hp = Pune
Thetraveller = Punto 75 hp = Pune
jayadev = Punto 90 hp = Kerela
SOOZ_Punto = Punto 75 hp = Bangalore

Even in a small community like TAI, we have so many Punto owners, despite the car's low sales. This shows only car enthusiasts buy Puntos!

Welcome to the Punto Club!

Re: Grande Punto Thread

I like the thread! and it can be a great source of information for all current and prospective owners. I for one have not got the car yet. Eagerly waiting for it.

Let me start with my first query:
Am looking to upgrade OEM shoes with new 185/70 R14 ones. Am looking for comfort and durability. (Don't have enough Vit M to buy Punto Alloys and shod them with 195/60 R15)
Any suggestions on good brands to choose from?
I have shortlisted below in that order:

Conti CPC2
Bridgestone Turanza ER 60
Apollo Acceler

@Raj - I have heard Michelins have softer sidewall. I have not read or heard about Yokohama that much. Any particular tyre you can suggest from Yokohama (A-drive or C-drive).

I think stock would be JK or Goodyear GT3 165/80 R14, so best upgrade would be 185/70 R 14 (if not going for 15 inchers)
