  1. Hi, can you share Punto aux in modification pics again pls ?

  2. If you guys think this is sensible please show you're support by signing this. The only way to fight a SC order is via a petition ( i think), anything else would be "Unconstitutional".. Please show you're support here sham2012-05-09 18:17:32
  3. In a classic case of "I am an indian", none of us here have taken up the responsibility of opposing this nonsense.. What is the benefit if in a forum like this we all cry our hearts out? I have been trying to contact the highest authority to give this case another look. I have drafted a mail as well.. But I need you're help. Whether as ACI'an or as individual. All i need are these.. 1.) name 2.) State 3.) city 4.) signature If everyone (or at least some) are ready to give me these details.. I"m ready to mail a draft you can all attest it and send it back.. We can either send it as a concern raised by ACI or we can raise this collectively as citizens of India... Please respond.
  4. I've never seen bargaining done for cars??? What the dealer quotes in the brochure is the final right... Of course he will start off with a whole lot of freebies and cash discounts by himself so beyond that it's not possible i suppose
  5. This is a classic case of India and Indian govt decisions.. Instead of spending time,money and thoughts in trying to figure out a way to stop the oil/fuel mafia they want to do something like this.. Do anyone here really think that brands like honda,VW, FIAT, and many more who have a foot print all over the world do special work on their engines just for india and that too to keep a check on emission/efficiency norms? If anything they will be happy to detune the car for our conditions... i dont know what sort of people run GOI

    AC on/off query

    oh great.. You guys saved me a lot of vitamin M now.. Thank you
  7. Hi all, I usually turn the AC completely off when i feel that the cabin has cooled enough and turn it back on if i feel otherwise. I recently came across some discussion that frequently doing this will reduce the life of the compressor. SO its best to keep the AC running and manage the temp level and set it at ones comfort levels. Upon refueling this time I tried this new approach, I kept the AC running most of the times but set the temp to medium cold, this resulted in a drop of nearly 2-3 kmpl, in total i lost about 75km worth of diesel in city traffic. I want to get back to my earlier habit of switching off the AC when cabin is cold , is it safe to do so?
  8. I believe that Shell does dispense better fuel . Logic is simple. Its not an Indian company at all so they need to maintain an overall standard so that when they are audited they dont run into trouble. As for better mileage ,well good fuel mean cleaner combustion and that can help in some better mileage but you cannot expect more than 1-2kmpl more(in case of a car). Now if Shell has also got down to doing under table business w.r.t to the quality they dispense then its just our ill fate, But i highly doubt this.
  9. I will also endorse dr_nishu on nano wax. Under his suggestion I bought nano wax and believe me its super good. To give you an idea ,I waxed my car about 2weeks ago and drove in dusty conditions and even after I wiped it clean with water and touched it , I can feel the smoothness even now and in 2weeks I've wiped My car nearly 4 times with water and still I can feel it . That's how good it is
  10. Could you also explain why you choose boxes over remaps.? I've tested a few boxes as well. Spider : Not good RD : good, on my list kiirus:: not yet
  11. sb-alto: any ideas on this yet,please?
  12. My punto runs on Diesel and I'm ready to spend up to 20K
  13. Ive sent an Email ,waiting for a reply from them Thank you
  14. dr_nishu: Fiat by default is using a synthetic oil, as i understand you're suggesting something even better? Could you also name a few that would do the trick? Hi-Performance fuel is a myth according to me because there is no way of actually testing them out in our local bunks. how does adding bigger sized tyres improve top speed?
  15. There is no re ply on this? No one has tuned their car? If you've done it please advice
