Default New 'blue' - GP and my GP's snaps

I was at Concorde this morning and happened to glance upon this new blue color GP.
Looks nice, but definitely not sporty.
i feel this color looks great on sedan like cars like the Linea or Corolla or Optra, but maybe not on all that great on hatches.


Like I mentioned a few weeks prior, I took a few snaps of my car.

Cosmetic modifications include a new spoiler, blackened borders to the front and rear lights and carbon fiber imitation stickers to the central console.

i have also got an arm rest as well. Shall post pics of the same soon.

@arishi1,
The armrest costed me 1.5k at J.C Road here in Bangalore.
I shall post snaps of the same in a few days.

One word though, it cannot match the quality and finish of either armster or the one available on the Linea.

My questions as follows :

1. In the 1st picture, is the white PUNTO damaged ? The bonnet looks dented!

2. The spoiler seen in the picture, is it from the show room or after market ? Because even I am interest in it and have seen only one PUNTO with that.

3. The carbon-fibre looks of the mid console, is it a sticker ?

4. I too wanted to keep an 800gm scale model GTO on my dash. What is the safest way to keep it held rigidly ? Any drilling or screwing required ?

Thanks

Sujith,
Please find below my responses.
1. Yes the white punto is dented, I am not sure whose it is.
2. It's an aftermarket one, I picked it up at J.C Road for Rs 2,500.
3. Yes, the carbon fiber looks is a sticker, paid Rs 200 for it.
4. I used Fevikwik to stick the wheels and placed it there. No drilling, no screwing. just make sure you keep it away from the Airbag. Mine has come off due to people constantly touching it and trying to move it. Need to stick it soon.

the carbon fibre sticker looks cool. how did you paste it? did you cut it into shape or it was already cut for punto as in case of auto graphics?

were there some variety in carbon fibre. if the checks would have been denser it would have been great.

+1 on that. Would have really looked much more sophisticated if the checks were finer and denser.

Could you please post a picture of the spoiler taken from some distance. And also a rear 3 quater snap of the entire car with the spoiler.

Thank man for your replies. Is the Spoiler's quality good ? Do they clamp it to the body or drill it ? My Santro's after market spoiler is clamped, but the same company fitted, is drilled to the body.

Lol. SmartCat meant GTO/Rush, our very own T-Bhp founder.

I got it done at a neighbourhood sticker shop.
It was cut one by one and stuck.

Yes, I too wanted a denser sticker but too bad, this is the only one available in the market.

The spoiler's quality is quite good and it is clamped; Not allowing anyone to drill any holes on my GP
