hey swaroop. just one word for your punto. fantastic. its done very tastefully. nothing overdone. Though i would prefer upsized alloys but yes they kill the ride quality.
again a very sweet ride

Looks good . I liked every bit of it except the Abarth sticker on the bonnet.

The other thing you could do is outline the rear lights in black.
Something like this.

Hey Swaroop,
Your Punto looks sweetly Pim*ed, I love it. Incidentally, I own a the 1.2-Emotion in the same BNW too. Its due first service in a couple of weeks. I plan the interior makeup first (its all stock), then a sweet set of alloy wheels, and then performance mods.

Please keep all of us posted on the performance mods you try on this model and whats the outcome, I may follow suit

P.S: I stay on bnrgta road near Meenakshi Temple, hope to meet up soon to get inspired from your Ride!!

I plan to first change the air filter and watch how the engine behaves and based on that will opt for a free flow exhaust. Have no plans to tamper with engine mapping as of now

Hey, really nice looking Punto. Just one info. How much did you pay for the HID Kit? Did it includes projectors as well?

Beautifully done mods, I especially liked the Abarth and the GSPORT seat covers. Now that I have seen the seat covers in your car, I will go for the same in mine hope you don't mind a copycat. Thanks - kailash

To be honest the punto looks best with minimalistic of mods and the stickering is just not complementing it well, the abarth stickers cool but the stripes are a no no for sure. Rest I guess is ur call

I didn't like that black colored sticker. By the way, I really loved the interiors - Yes, I'm referring to the seat covers.

Those black alloys are absolute drool material. Are they 98 PCD alloys. I guess fitting those blue colored LED's on the grill would void the warranty. Can someone throw some light on the same?

Hi bharti22shresth, please check out the hub centric rings which I made for my MJD.

I got it made from stainless steel. Vignesh recommended mild steel but the difference in cost between MS and SS was not very high and hence i went in for SS.

Yes alloys are 98 PCD. The blue LED will not void the warranty coz i have not tampered with the original wiring

The HID kit for the fog lights and headlights together was 13K. It does not include projector

Hey Swaroop,

You might not remember me by my name...but I have seen your car when we went for prince of persia movie in gopalan arcade. Couldn't see in detail on that day (or midnight rather)
will soon meet up with you another time. But can you please give me more details of your mods through alemaari avinash? I'm planning modifications of my Bosso Nova White 1.2 Grande Punto Emotion.
If you are ok with sharing the details here,it will also help many other fellow tbhpians.
