Congrats Vignesh,

Good Choice of color and car.
IMO Black sticker in Front Bumper is not eye catching.little bit wierd.
Might be looking good once you add Number plate.
Try change some design there rather paste fully.
As you know,i too got my car from VST Anna Nagar and from Kadhar.
going to take delivery of my brothers car from same place&person by 20th this month.
Car has already came.FIAT Punto Petrol1.4 Emotion Pack in Red color.

Technokrat?is the shop at Nelson Manickam Raod?
Enjoy your Drive

great stuff dude! The car looks great.

Where in chennai did you get the seat covers - they look great and seem to be a good deal.

Post pics when you get the alloys

Dude AWESOME seat covers man! The finish is very good

I thought you told me you got a 4ch amp and 6inch components upfront! (???)

Please post a few pics from behind with the mudflaps on.

sagar bhai,
my dad dint want to spend money on ICE and moreover the bass effect produced by the amp and sub is really hated by him,so i had to get only a 2 channel amp.So getting a 2 ch amp,i thought it could only power the sub and not any of the speakers,so i felt components wont do a great deal.

Seat covers looks superb. . It has really enhanced the already beautiful Punto interiors (I LOVE BLACK).

The mud flaps though, look too big for the car and spoils the looks a bit. Is that a stock mud flap? Why don't you try something better.

Really a nice upgrade for the punto.Loved the black grill.You forgot to install the fog lamps & antenna I guess.
The fit & finish of seat covers are good,ho much did you spend on them?
Expecting to get a good set of alloys.
Happy motoring.

Seats cost me on the likes of 3.8k and 500 for install.Alloys are still confusing me.Lets see.The mudflaps are like properly designed for the punto,they r a bit big though,but helps in the dirty roads of chenni

I guess the Punto has added a wide smile on your face!

Nice seat covers! Do keep us posted when the 98 PCD alloys are in!
