Thanks to All for the wishes......My Punto arrived from Showroom today evening after registration. Drove in the busy city traffic of Bangalore effortlessly.After driving Indica for 4 and half yrs this is like driving a toy car to me.Ease and grace she smoothly sails thru the traffic with effortless control. I am loving it. Tomorrow I will be taking to office 30 kms from my house via NICE road cant wait for it.

Best thing to do, push her for longer drives and engine will smoothen out much faster [:)]

Punto just seems so eager to munch miles at ease! Anyway you will see a lot of difference in engine breathing after 1K and then after 3K. It becomes light and smooth.

First of all congratulation, nice to see one more Punto owner, from Bangalore.
One thing I noticed is for Emotion model the tyres fitted was JK tyre- R14 165/80. The executive told me me that since may this year they have been getting vehicles with this tyre for emotion/active/dynamic.Earlier it was Bridgestone R14/175. He also showed me the latest catalogue which was showing the same thing. Anybody in this forum who had purchased Emtion after May June .Please confirm this.
This is correct.
I bought my car in Aug 2009 and it had 175/70 R14, Bridgestone tyres. Though I have chaged it now - http://www.theautomotiveindia.com/f...18-accessories-my-red-punto-13.html#post62353.

Sometime in 2011 early months, Fiat stopped to provide 175/70 tyre, because of low ground clearance. 165/80 has more GD.
I would suggest, first thing to swap your tyre with 185/70 width one. You will appreciate your Punto more after tyre change.

Wow suresh! Teaser pics. The first and the last are awesome. You really have some nice photography skills.[clap]. The first pic is looking like a scale model.

Nice!
