    It looks unique, no doubt. But my only concern is - black color is going to absorb a lot of heat in our hot summer.
    Instead of the roof, I was wondering how it will look on the dashboard. If anyone has seen it or done it, please share your experience.

    Even i was thinking of the same but the surface is somewhat granular so i don't think it'll stick properly

    Thanks for the reply nmp. Its true that black is going to absorb more heat. But then its just like buying a black punto... Will have to do a little compromise on that :)

    I think that is primarily because of the jet black in actual than the carbon black in the Photoshoped one!! Correct me if I am wrong!

    Yes Srini, Even I think so... Maybe I put some polish on it that could be the reason of being dark.

    No Ganges, just wanted to keep it to Red and Black. I am thinking to stick carbon fiber on the door handles, side mirror and on the wheel cap.

    It looks good. Must try some metallic paint then.
