Congrats Vignesh, Enjoy the bold new drive.
Is that the PU leather seat covers you have? Its if from AutoFoam?
Also can you check How much does those mud flaps cost? Did you get the floor mats along? Mud flaps and mats are still not available in blore.

divx bhai.
Seat covers were stitched from delhi and sent and its not autofoam.autofoam dint have anything for Dynamic.they have only for the emotion.Mudflaps costed me 350 bucks,i think.i can get you one if you want.My car came with Punto OE mats free.It was actually LINEA mats which was promised but finally came the Punto mats.even the sales executive was surprised to see when i showed him that.

Vignesh,

Do you have the K&N filter part numbers for both Punto and Palio?

Guys,
for those of you who want to know what is the difference in dynamic.Dynamic comes with the dials of the Emotion pack.But active has a different dial with a small display.and the screen doesnot provide date and day and also information about which door is open.So that makes a lot of difference.the factory fitted central lock is also great.unlike the after market ones..BTW K&N has been installed by me DIY..The car feels a little more spirited than before.

1) How come your Dynamic version has a black strip on the center of the front bumper

2)Does dynamic come with a crome steel/crome finished center console in the dashboard
