Default Modifying my Fiat Punto

Dear Bhpians I think its about time we start this thread about our very own punto. Because the minute one rolls out this baby off the showroom first thing that comes to their mind is "The MOD Potential" this italian tuner has both cosmetic and performance. Hence i have started this one stop thread for all the queries one can possibly have regarding this Italian hot hatch.

I for one am looking to mod outer looks of my GP. Mods planned in my mind are:
1. Adding a cool spoiler may be original as on Punto Sports. Abarth spoiler is also there in my mind but it goes only if i can also find suitable body kit.
2. I am planning to change the Chrome headlights with the black one as on Punto sports.
3. I am also planning to paint the whole front silver grill and fog lamp holders to black
4. Willing to add a new exhaust tip Just the tip if i can find one.
5. A front lip spoiler is also doing rounds in my mind.
6. On the inside am planning to add Aluminum foot pedals. Which one to go for?
It will be very nice if someone can help me source all of these products in delhi as I saw couple of puntos spoilered in delhi but the company doesnt provide one. Can those artificial exhaust tip fit the punto's, I ask this because the punto's exhaust is a bit tilt downwards? What are the good brands for all my requirements and where to go for all this in delhi?
Thanks.

We're planning on buying a hatch in a months time or two. And rest assured, I wouldn't leave it stock!

I was very impressed by the Grande Punto Sport that was displayed at the Auto Expo 2010. It looked fantastic, apart from the cheesy decals though! I loved the interior, the wheels and the white paint off-set by the red mirrors! It looked like an Abarth replica!

Here is the link for reference: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/1669674-post2.html

Does anyone know where I could get some of these parts? I'm very interested in the wheels! They're very nifty!

I absolutely love the clean stock look of the Punto. Except for a set of nice alloys & tyres, I wouldn't bother with other aesthetic mods.

However, another must have modification for the Punto : A diesel tuning box .

Imagine adding Pete's box to the 'soon-to-be-launched' Punto Sports, which already makes 90bhp!

In the linea, it churns out 102 bhp. Safe to assume, Punto Sports will be a 100+bhp HOT hatch once the box goes in! Forget after sales service, thats defenitly one car to buy!

Thats true But i really wonder what price point will that punto launch at. Its not going to be anyway this side of 8L with that saucy sun roof, Pirelli tyres and those rims. I hate the red inserts on the inside.

Even I love the stock look of my red GP. Things (minor one's) I'm planning to add are:
1) chrome strip on the tailgate.
2) stainless steel sill plates.

I was keen on adding exhaust tip but as "physicspsyche" said, I'm not sure if that will look good since punto's exhaust is tilted downwards!

Anyone know how much will the above things cost? And where can I get them from?

I doubt whether the Chrome exhaust can be fitted in Punto/Linea.
The tip of the exhaust is pointing downwards and looks like it is not possible to fit an additional tail pipe.

I am desperately in search of the following for my Linea (for the past 6 months). They are available in ebay but the postage charges are higher than the cost of the product itself.
1. Door Sills/Kick Plates
2. Seat belt cushion
3. Sporty Foot Pedals

The FIAT branded ones could be seen in the FIAT Brazil site.

I don't see how the spoiler(if its called so) beneath the rear windshield has improved the aesthetics of the punto. Once again its personal choice and it definitely looks out of place.
I rather would put my money on a tuning box and an uber cool set of alloys like GTO mentioned.
