There you go,
amulu10 aka ravi,ma buddy has answered the queries.
But Active and dynamic have a huge difference,the dials in dynamic is similar to emotion but active has a basic dial with a slightly smaller screen.which cant display the door open warning etc..Thats why i got Dynamic.I m happy that i have bought Dynamic instead of Active.

My alloys should be with me next week
I will post pics once shiva brings it to me.

Thanks ravi & Vignesh..i got a doubt as the brochure says dynamic does not come with a dual tone dashboard. Does that mean something else .
I feel Dynamic with all the above features is a good choice vignesh n VFM too .
are u planning for fog lamps , any idea how much does a spare fog lamp cost if we need to buy from the showroom
also any plans of gething the OVRM painted?

The Dynamic has silver painting on the frontal area of the dash(place where head unit is housed and AC control knobs are provided) and also the silver strip on the dash, this is not available in Active. The dashboard of Active is all black.

After seeing my Palio ELX's wooden dash finish (2006 Retro ELX), I am somehow not liking the silver lined dash in our new Punto dynamic.

Glad that I selected Dynamic instead of Active, in fact I never noticed the differences in the instrument cluster.

I wish dynamic just had driver side control for the rear power windows too.
