Hey VinZ probably you might wanna check out my ride (Santro) who's as close as it gets to being a Black and running on a 15" Veloche Rims.

Since Black is my Fav color and you own one yourself, you might get a fair idea on choosing some neat footwear for your Italian Love.

Since we are from the same town, I can help you further with finding a good dealer around.

@kingofmyworld - I personally think that you should go for a 15". No matter what you decide, please post some snaps for all the Punto Lovers to feast their eyes off!

Anyone know from where can I source this in India?
SPOILER ALETTONE POSTERIORE FIAT GRANDE PUNTO - eBay (item 120541630978 end time Apr-09-10 14:02:10 PDT)

Is the exhaust tip available?
Punto's exhaust pipe tilts towards the ground at the end, can we still fix an exhaust tip?

something struck me yesterday afternoon.

when the engine doing the work in the punto and the linea is the same, why can't we remap the ECU or whatever in the punto's engine to perform like linea's??

it shouldn't be that difficult, considering the same engine is doing rounds in swift, dzire, vista and what not with different settings.

can anyone who has more profound knowledge on this aspect tell us why and why not is this possible.

Its not that simple, Punto has a FGT where Linea has VGT. because of that there is difference in power.

Also, a new turbo will be a mighty expensive affair...

Guys, from my dealer in Bangaloe, I came to know that we are not allowed to do any kind of modification in the stock car. I was soo eager to add sound for my keyless entry system.

Anybody had similar kind of experience?

Just add Petes Tuning Box i added for a few weeks and they work amazing 92 ps power at 4250 rpm as noted by the Petes office

Swift/Ritz/Punto require the same tuning box to match Lineas performance without major upgrades.

hey guys,
i have a Plati(Lenso samurai look alike) 15 incher.I wanted to get the 17 or atleast 16 but dint want to compromise on ride quality.My area has real bad roads.So i have gone for these 100 pcd alloys.The only problem it had was the Hub dia.diff.So i got hub centric rings.it was quoted about 1.2k.I ended doing it for 120 bucks(afterall am a budding Mechanical Engg.).Btw have done 160 kmph.no issues whatsoever.No wobbles.I have done all this after selling the OE Punto alloys i had used for 5 months now.also PCD was my research topic for 6 months(even when i had a SIENA).Check the pics.

I remember reading somewhere that a 100PCD can be converted to 98, not sure of the safty concerns though, in 100 PCD people have choices
