If you don't mind I have a few suggestions.

The glossy on the roof and matte finish on the hood looks odd. I say remove the hood vinyl, and remove the vinyl around the no plate and that little Punto sticker below the hood. It will look much, much better then since your headlights and rims are great.

Finally you got your roof blackened after alot of thinking and debate. Your car looks nice. Please dont think about the red side mirrors and the abarth stickering you were thinking of earlier. Its looking nice and simple as of now. Where you planning to get your callipers painted???


BTW I really want to do the same on my roof as well. You suggest autographix only or any other. Also 4k is a little more than what I expected. Any cheaper option available?? And how would blue callipers look on my Ritz??

If you want good quality stuff, then I would suggest extreme graphics.

you can get it done for 1500 also, in Mulund.

Sadly, I am not too much into photography. I dont know anything about lighting, exposure or saturation levels!

Ok whenever you are clicking your car next, focus on the rims. This will do.

After the rickshaw guy scraped my car's front bonnet a week back, today an aunty in a getz scraped the rear bonnet. My car was stationary in a signal. I was on my way to 3M car care for exterior detailing.

3M guys did their best to make the scratches less visible.

Here are the pics after detailing -

The sun film looks fab. Which make are they ? What was the model and cost.
I don't see mud flaps installed on your car. The last three pics are very good.

I think I will also go for exterior restore essential. Thanks for sharing.

@Raj, your car looks Fantastic after the treatment / wash. Sad that the bumpers are scraped due to careless attitude of people.

Can you let us know the address of the Mumbai 3M Car Care Center, i was also contemplating to take my car to 3M Center, but couldnt find any references.

dude just smoke your tail lamps (glossy black ha not matte) and the non-reflective portion of your headlamps and blacken your front grill. Your exteriors should be sorted then.

Get the OE spoiler fitted. It will add to the looks nicely.

Raj, since your allloys are black, I would suggest paint the front grills and ORVMs to black, the car will be an all together different looker.

Dude, FIAT guys are saying they will have to drill holes in the boot for the OE spoiler. Is it advisable? I am a bit apprehensive because there maybe chances of leakage or rusting.

All my friends have been asking me to paint the grill black. Somehow I am not comfortable with that idea. I dont know why but on seeing a white punto with black grill (active & dynamic variants), I feel the car does not look upmarket.
