    From a very long time I've been thinking about getting rid of the bad quality plastics used on a beautiful car.
    So I've been contemplating getting the dashboard leather wrapped just the way one can get the steering, seats,door panels done.
    Anyone who has got it done or has any ideas about it please let me know.
    I reported this in another thread but thought it would be more appropriate if a new thread was started.

    Let me know if anyone has any ideas please

    I can never get my head around this oft repeated statement.

    Leather dash would look nice if implemented well. Have you enquired about the costs etc?

    Well I ve tried some well known guys in blr
    And none of them do dashboard trimming .
    If my hunch is right then they will be glued top the dashboard
    Now that is a disaster if not done right.
    So still in search of a capable guy

    True. I have never understood why people blame the plastic. In fact, i feel they are quite good. Recently, i checked out the interiors of a Vista and i felt punto has better plastics inside. I think the vendor is the same for both Tata and FIAT.

    It is possible to replace the older dash with the 2012 model dashboard, and I hope the 2012 model has a better quality and finish.
    You may enquire with the dealer about the cost.

    The dash board quality differs from the different models. I felt so because I have a 2011model 90 and a friend has a dynamic and a known guy has an active. I would say the feel of the dash is entirely different from the top model and the base models. The hi end models have a soft touch dash and of much better quality while the latter is pathetic.
