@Suhas - i have a Philips HID kit installed in my Punto, practically they work extremely well without scatter, Brilliant brightness and superb beam control. Highly recommended, i assure it has no side effects.

Haha, who wouldn't want to be rich? then my car would be a petrol monster for sure Go for the headlights man, its worth the effort as its a big + factor for visibility and safety.

Am slowly getting brainwashed myself for a petes and air filter. God save me!

Aftermarket projectors for improving visiblity is not a great idea though for bling reasons it may be worth it. I have seen people selling their projector kits after some time.

A Petes kit would definitely make your Car better.

Are you sure that the beam isn't scattered? That's the reason why I didn't go in for HIDs on my Civic. The 'Angel Eyes' IMO look a bit cheap and aftermarket. Besides my Father wouldn't like experimenting by getting a projector retro-fitted and DIYed so we decided to forgo the entire plan.

Why don't you try out projectors + HIDs, you'll be able to see the difference! Trust me! There is a huge, massive difference. The regular cluster will never be able to focus HID beams the way projectors do. Give it a try!

The Pete's kit would be a whole lot more useful. I agree with you!

There is nothing like the combination of a Green filter and a Pete's box for starters!

Any updates on these? I tried sourcing a pair of projector style headlamp clusters from the UK and it's ringing up to 10K which seems like a bit too much really.

Any more updates here?
Did anyone source / fit / retrofit projector setup on Punto?

I was thinking about bi-xenon retrofitted projector setup.
