Default Petra accessories

Folks,

Need some help from people here. I am looking for Fiat Petra. I got quotations from two dealers and there was big difference in prices among even the dealer. Sure there will be lot more with the aftermarket prices.

Need some info on following :

1. Alloy wheels : 20 K for Aura, 22.5 K for imported Fiat. (which is better? I will go with Fiat)
2. Tubeless tyres 175/65 R14 : Bridgestone 3.5K-4.5K, Michelin 6.5K . (Which one is better? why? Is there is big difference really?)
3. Spoiler : 7000and 10000. (Dont know why such a big difference).
4. Articial leather seat cover: 5.5 K
Italian Leather seat covers : 16K
Complete redoing of upholstery : 16K
5. Paint job on side mirror/handles : 2k

What other accessories should I go for? Are these prices alright or bloated up? Thanks!

hey RX these prices are way bloated up ...
im coming to pune on 22nd most probably so if u havent gotten your car then wait ...
i would like to go to the fiat showroom too
i suggest u avoid the spoiler cause it doesnt look very good ...
when are u getting your car anyways
get goodyear eagles ...
they are around 3.2 per tyre and some really sexy alloys are for 3-5 per tyre...
art leather is for around 4k in mumbai and they remove your seat and fit it properly...
get a security system only from fiat and the paint job. nothing else ...
try to get delivery on 22 or 23 please ...
thanx
oh and please pm me your ad and no if possible.. do u live some where near prabhat rasta... are any of the showrooms there

Well, i'd suggest you opt for 185/60 R 14s instead of the stock tyres. Michellins are grippy but wear out faster. Bridgestones can take lot more torture.

Thanks all for your help! I am thinking of getting only alloys and tyres which seem to be reasonable in prices. I will get them by exchanging OEM wheels/tyres, which will be cheaper than going out and then changing. Rest I guess, I will fit aftermarket.

Not sure about the purchase date yet, but around 1 to 1 1/2 months time.

Shan2nu, are stock 175/65 R14 not good enough for its handling? I talked to the dealer about 185/60 and he complained that it may obstruct with body if the car goes through a really big pothole since not much clearance will be left. Personally, I am not sure it will since there is only a difference of about 5.5 mm between the two tyres.
