Default Got tints and seat covers

Hey guys

Got sunfilm installed on the car.The whole look of the car has changed and it looks 'wow'!
Would take good pics over the weekend and put it up.
Black tints did not suit the car well so went in with these tints.The car looks super hot with these.
Also have put up leather seats.

Hi Rajini ,

I am getting a Punto Active MJD in the coming week , i enquired with the dealer on the central locking , he is advising me to not to go for central locking from different vendor like Minda, as Fiat is going to provide the accessory in a month or so .

Can you please share your experience on the same and also which sunfilms you have put on your car , i enquired here and the dealer is charging me 3800 Rs for Garware [Grey - 30].

congratulations!! wow i cant believe it looks so good!!

i have a few questions.

if i were to buy punto 1.2 which i am thinking of in the near future!

i would like to make few small changes!!

1) can we change the black plastic door handles and just the ORVMs to body colour by paying little extra at dealership. i dont mind paying some extra charge i just dont like plastic bits!! because i would go for the red color and if i couldn't then my choice would be to go for black color to camouflage the cheap mirrors and door handles!! actually i like both colors! its just visually it would look great with body coloured handles and ORVMs in Red..

2) interiors!! i just wanna know are they better than swift or better!! which car other car you can compare it to!! ritz perhaps!? (talking about plastic quality and dashboard area)

3)ooh and what about key-less entry!! i think if you installed auto-cop warranty probs arise!! or else can these be fitted at the dealer without warranty issues??

i understood that you can get the central locking done from outside!! great.

just concerned about the warranty and some basic stuff!! wondering these changes can be made by paying something extra!!

and have you thought about alloys?? are you into this or this is just a car for commutes. no pimping !!

-I just enquired with FIAT - PUNE and they say nothing in pipe line for the next couple of months,though concorde says it should have it in around a month or so.
My central locking is pending - should get done tomorrow as I am not in town.Installing remote locking would in most possibily void the warrant ( I have already installed music system so the warranty is already suspect).

Ill Give the details for the sunfilm by tomorrow.

- Yes you can get the above things changed.I too need to get these changed.Also Xenos said last week they have got the mudflaps and other accesories for punto witht hem.

2) interiors!! i just wanna know are they better than swift or better!! which car other car you can compare it to!! ritz perhaps!? (talking about plastic quality and dashboard area)

- I have never sat in both these cars!Regarding plastic quality - the door locking levers seems very flimsy.Feels they would break anytime.Most of the plastics would feel -like they have to be handled with care.


3)ooh and what about key-less entry!! i think if you installed auto-cop warranty probs arise!! or else can these be fitted at the dealer without warranty issues??

- remote locking getting it installed tomorrow.Warranty would become void.
- Without warrant getting void only sunfilm and seat cover you can get installed would be my guess.

i understood that you can get the central locking done from outside!! great.

-Yes Xenos is doing it and a t-BHP member had said MINDA also does it.

just concerned about the warranty and some basic stuff!! wondering these changes can be made by paying something extra!!

-Yes every thing can be done for a price.

-music system, speakers,remote lock and rear sensors for all these I would be paying 18k.This is from xenos.

and have you thought about alloys?? are you into this or this is just a car for commutes. no pimping !!
-yes did look around for alloys initially but havent actively lately.But would be changing it a couple of months down the line.
-The car is just for commutes!20 kms a day - home to work and back thats all!No ideas of a pimped punto.

thanks for all the info!! BY pimping i just meant getting alloys n stuff!! adding spoiler etc.

and about the interior door handles. well they wont be chrome painted and sleek for the price. so i guess overall its should be okay!! no big deal

my friend has a swift!! i never sat in one before. but the day he bought it. he came to my house and we went for joy rides . but i was so dissapointed with the plastic. its pathetic man!! i didnt said anything to him. he would get sad if had said it . he was happy he just got a swift hehe.

oh and one more thing if you can tell me!! how is the leg room at the backseats on the punto !! is it okayish!! or what?

Surely nothing will void the warranty instead not to cut for joints in the car wiring.
I am sure Xenos use some type of clips for joints.
so don't worry.
Enjoy and Drive Safe

Rajini, the tints look great.

The leather seat looks good, but the fitting is all screwed up. Ask them to make it more snug.

Ohhh ok!I thought serious tuning, turning it into a car which could try for F1's kinda!

The interior door handles are same black coloured and you could get them painted chrome perhaps.But the door handles doont look bad but feel very dicey when you touch them.

oh and one more thing if you can tell me!! how is the leg room at the backseats on the punto !! is it okayish!! or what?

The legroom is not too bad for short drives,on long drives it could be uncomfortable i should say for tall people

The funny thing is TAFE said even if you dont cut wires,but if you do install even a music system the warranty goes void!
Yes karthik I agree with what you say!

Hey Gilead - Ill take some more pics and put up of the tint.It actually has a slight hint of reflective in it.We tried black but this seemed to suit better.

The seats are supposed to be loose fitting it seems!!

As of now, i don't have any work.
Till next month I am totally free.
Only time pass is surfing team-Bhp.
So you definitley get some mesages daily from my side.

Then I am having some issue with newly installed WindShield sunfilm from Xenos.
Seems some manufacturing defects in the films or installation issue.
Xenos Manager, Mr.Subramanian and a techincal guy might be coming to my place on Sunday to check the problem.
He already assured me to change the film.But i want to know the reason of the problem.

Thought you also installed sunfilms from Xenos itself.
Have you used WindShield Sunfilm ?
