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.
Back from office the reading shows 135 today.I covered 65kms today.Through city and NICE road.Maintained below 2000 rpm all the time and could not cross 80kmph on NICE road for the same reason.Awesome driving experience.Could not take my camera so pics will be posted next time.
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.
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.
