I paid 4.8k per tyre.balancing and nitrogen was free,they also gave me BT handsfree as a gift.I bought it with a new tyre shop here in PORUR by name Padmavathi tyres.They are YOKO authorised dealers.I love the amazing grip in wet roads offered by C drives.

@Vigneshram. For the love of experimenting!. Wow. Well I dont mean 'Wow' for the car, but wow after seeing the change it has gone through. Some for the good (well only now) and more for the worse.

But have to say in its most recent Avatar, it looks good and please let it stay that way.

Does anybody know where can i buy the metal pedals for my Fiat Punto? I like the ones that come on the new Sports model but I am sure there are better and more reputed brands in India.

Sparco ones are available in most accessory shops, not sure about the price.

Looks nice! Would have loved to see the wheels from the side! Did you get it painted? And I see a KL registration, man - you are killing your car with lowered suspension!

I don't like the n_p_l_s (?) on the bonnet though!

Loved everything except the narrow stripes. Guess the car will look better with a wider stripe. I have seen a red palio in Bangalore with white "wide" stripes, looked really great!

I like the design on the red Punto, somehow feel that the finish is NOT great! Is this actually an OEM product [which is fitted on the Punto]?

Guess this is the BEST punto mod on this thread! Very very clean and compliments the car a lot!

Edit:: I believe those red wheels would look smokin HOT on a black Punto!

Wow, that looks terrific! Exceptionally good.
Except maybe for the things(?) on the hood.
By the way, are those alloys 98 pcd?
And I know this is rhetorical, but how's the ride quality with such low profile tyres and the lowered suspension?
And how do you manage to clear the bumps and gutters on our roads with those skirts plus suspension?

well the punto has the best suspension in a hatchback available in the Indian market so lowering it will not hamper the ride quality. The dynamics of the car has vastly improved and it has a go kart feel.

well this is one more pic of the car.

Hey msvg, I am not sure which part of India/World you currently at since you have probably listed "All the Places" below your handle bro !!


Just in case you are in & around Bangalore, I would advise you to have a look at Prerana Motors (hope I got the name right), opposite to Christ College.

I happened to accompany a friend who wanted to look for a T-Jet last weekend and found such Pedals on display, which apparently, were "Add-on Accessories".

That's a brilliant photo! Nice work. Two Fiat hatches in the same household? You must be the local TATA/FIAT dealer's best friend!
