It surely does, except the door handles. Why don't you get them painted as well?
By the way fantastic pics

Thats planned as well, somewhere down the line.
Dont want to rush the things. I love the fact that something is pending to be done on the car. Keeps the excitement going.

Yup, will get them done.

I was about to call you yesterday.
Just was to inquire, are there two types of spoilers available for punto on Kumar's website?
Also, could you please post the picture of your firend's punto with the wing spoiler installed?

Sumit & Vignesh have either of you got some info on the HID projectors? I am looking for some but seems we need to source them from either Taiwan or UK.

I guess getting 20 is an issue, even if we check with the Punto Users Group, I don't think we can get 20. I guess we have to wait more if some of the companies (like Reliance Autozone etc.) will get these in India as after market accessories.

That wing looks to be attached to some Mumbai Car (Wasan Motors sticker), IMHO it doesn't look that cool. The one that FIAT sells in UK is much better. I wish if FIAT can get those accessories in India also. Any one in FIAT listening

You can get the light custom made as well. But they are not exactly cheap either. However, custom made lights (if done through the right person) are much better than TAIWAN made one.
One reason is that they are made using your stock headlamp and you can use some good projectors (from accidental SKODAs or BMWs).
You can use a godd HID kit with them.
The whole setup (with HID kit) costs close to 20k for the pair.

I checked eBay for spoilers, ABARTH version spoiler is available. It costs close to 5k (FOR).

I agree with you, hope FIAT India provides it as an accessory.
Punto sports launch is around the corner. Lets hope the sports model comes with a spoiler. Then we can buy them from FIAT.

Anyone tried smoking their headlamps?

Not only are you great with the camera (amazing set of pictures on the previous page), but also those black pillars are taste...sheer taste. Well done & congratulations on a sweet hatchback.

Sumit, fantastic pictures and great job with the painted B-pillars.

Contrary to most suggestions, I believe that that the black door handles look good on your car. While there is a lot to be said for a richer look, a flowing design, sometimes a highlight (like a black door handle) is great to break the monotony. The rear view mirrors have a black coloured stalk and that fits with the door handles as well.

I have a suggestion that you can think about, trying to smoke the edges of the taillamps. Just to give you a clue to what I am talking about, take a look at the picture.
