Thanks buddy. I didn't go for the Abarth theme because i wanted to do the project with the modules available in India. Its just that small things can make a difference. I will be getting a spoiler and door handles is a suggestion that will be definitely looked into. The project is not over so watch this thread for more.

It was a direct fit. There were no issues related to it.

Hi Nimish
Vehicle looks fabulous.
From where did you modify the grill? How is the vinyl gloss finish of the roof done? From which dealer did you source the alloy?
Can you please tell me how much did all this modifications cost you?

Hi Nimish, Thats a very neat mod for a already classy looking car. As you have mentioned already, the Grande Punto is one fabulous looking car and mooding it, without ending in the weird and wacky mods thread is quite difficult. But your car is really well done. Could you share the cost of the alloys, and also the component wise cost break up of your ICE with us? A review of your current ICE and how the stock ICE compares (I know how bad the stock one is, but still for a scalability purpose) to this one would be much appreciated too!

Hi Aravind, Its nice that you did like my mods. I had a couple of friends who played with the front bumper and ended up being a laughing stock. But i wanted to have a difference so went ahead with the project of a lower lip to stand out from the stock car. The alloys cost me 32 thousand.
The ICE break up is as follows
Focal Component Polyglass front speaker 14,000/-
Focal coaxial polyglass rear speaker 11,000/-
Focal 4 channel Amp 16,000/-
Focal Subwoofer 15,000/-
Wiring E2 8,500/-
Spacer Pad 2,500/-
Installation 1,800/-

Total 67,800/-

I went for the Focal set up as i was told that focal is the best available in the market.
Its just like you cannot compare the OE sound with the ones installed. The present set up is light years ahead. Its like you have to hear it to believe it.

Thank you very much for your courteous reply Nimish! No wonder your friends ended up as laughing stocks, GP's design needs lots of care and thought befor you actually play with them. Thanksfully tou have not gone overboard. Currently your car, is one of the best Punto's I have seen. Great going Keenly watching this space Bro.

Get a set of Sparco mudflaps (prederably in red - to just break the black and white theme - by a bit) - trust me, it will complement the looks.

Even the door mirror housing (not the bracket/extender) could be done in the same colour.

Chrome on the handles, aren't going with the theme though.

Well i don't think SPC has mudflaps. The ones that are available are just the ones with the sparco name that has been used. Moreover i have seen quite a few Swifts with the same and it was not much to my liking.
The door mirror housing will be changed to carbon fiber.
Chrome handles i do agree don't go well with the overall theme. It will be done in Phase II of the mod

Did you retain the stock HU? Where did you get the installation done?
