Lightbulb I want Black+beige combo instead of Black+grey in Punto.

Little , How easy/difficult/impossible/costly will it be to replace Punto's gray portion of the interior to beige of Linea?

Hi JayD. Plain stupid, may be if you don't like to navigate. Everything from wallpapers to prices and dealers' numbers are available, so maybe I am stupid but I don't understand by what you meant by your comment. Here are links, both originating from parent site:

Fiat India

Fiat Punto

Some *** broke off my rear wiper assembly. Now that also needs to be changed with bumper. I am thinking of buying reverse sensors and then give my car for bumper change. Its running without right rear mud guard. Will it do any damage to the tyre?
Is it good enough to give Tata guys rear sensor to install along with new bumper? I hope they wont screw up the job?

My father took his GP for a kerala trip on Sat. On the way the rear window got jammed and refused to go up. I called roadside assistance and they gave me the phone number of the chochi service center and the service advisor's number. On Sun they went it and had the car checked out. He said the motor is damaged and it needs to be replaced. As the service center did not have a replacement they pushed window back into place. He is back in town on next year so will keep you guys posted about any further developments.

Default Punto Accessories - Price List

Folks

Since Fiat put up the list of accessories on the website, I immediately emailed them as I badly wanted a good set of carpet floor mats. The ones I got from dealer as a freebie were not good. And I detest the rubber universal mats, makes me feel like I am in a taxi.

I am very hopeful these are custom fit for Punto.

Here the price list for anyone else who may need it. I am going to call my dealer or TASS who ever can provide the mats to me at the earliest. Will keep you guys posted.

Sensors are quite useless. Its better you get a reverser camera installed. Very easy job and works better than the sensors. You would get chinese ones for around 4-5K but my choice would be RD reverse camera system with 7" screen, costs 7K. In addition you may also will be able to use the screen for video playback if desired.

I own a punto 1.2, and for the first 2000 KMs the car felt underpowered, but after that it's comparable to any other 1.2 ; the best thing about 1.2 engine is the torque peaks at 2600 RPM (compared to 4000+ on the 1.4) that makes it pretty useful for City Commute.

I heard people calling even the 1.4 underpowered and the reason is simple, the car has a brilliant chasis with the perfect combination of ride and handling which begs you to extract the max of any engine.
