  2. I had GSport in my 800 and having Dorado in Punto, both are very good.
    I payed 5500 INR for Dorada inclusive of installation. It is really worth the money. GSport - if you are a brand freak else go ahead with Dorado.
    I dont know about Bangalore as I stay in Mysore, but you should get Dorado still cheaper in bangalore :)
    If you want the contact number from where i got the seat cover in Mysore, PM me.
    Dorado is 100% better than Autocam and other brands.

    chethan how did u blacken A, B & C pillars. and also how did u fixed those fog lamps? is it connected to the original wiring or is it having a seperate(manual) connection.
  5. Sumit, painting the door handles is due next month, the dealer promised me to get that painted during delivery for free.
    I was in a hurry during purchase and could not get that done, how ever the ORVMs are painted before delivery.
    I am going to Hassan on August and shall definitely get them painted.

    A, B and C pillars are blackened by Vinyl stickers. You can get that done in any of the Sticker cutting shop. Be careful that you chose only Vinyl stickers and not the radium one.

    Vinyl stickers can be peeled out if required and it does not affects the body paint. Radium on the other hand cannot be peeled and if peeled requires a repainting.

    The cost was 200 Rs to get the A, B and C blackened with Vinyl.

    I got the fog lamps fitted by the dealer itself. Each fog lamp cost me a 1400 Rs. Wiring is separately done with a mechanical switch.
    Total cost for fog lamps was 2800 inclusive of the black holders to hold the fog lamps. Wiring, switch and labor was free.
    Dealer offered me to get that connected to my parking switch, When ever i turn on the parking switch the fog lamps would turn on. But i wanted it to be in a separate line so that i could turn on when required.

    I shall post you some pictures of the switch soon.

    Today I got the headlight bulbs replaced to 100/90.
    I went for Hella branded wire harnessing and Narva H4 bulbs.

    Hella relay cost me 800 bucks and Narva bulbs at 650 Rupees.

    Installation was free.

    Good thing is that my punto has blue eyes now::D

    Those alloys look really good. I have always felt the alloy designs from FIAT are the best. The linea ones are even better looking than the Punto ones.

    woow. just went through all your pics and they are brilliant. your red punto looks awesome. and pls dont change the grill color let it remain black as it suits red more. i always envy punto owners as they can play with the looks of their cars. black grill silver grill, abarth stickers, alloys etc.
