    TW itself is a great color. How about Bronzo Scuro or Pearl white?
    But re-paint in workshop will be no match to original paint. Its better not to go for full re-paint.

    Ok, now a latest update is i got a verbal quote from Balaji FIAT for whole body repainting in same colour of 40k, which is 2 times than what i got quoted through a local body shop.

    On other side, i finally started living with those scratches, as in our building a new car is canvas for children.. :hit
    So will get it touched up for prominent scars and to give a fresh look planning to wrap the Mirror wings and Roof top in white-silvery colour (the same as i have on door of "FIAT" sticker) .

    - - - Merged Post - - -

    Just to have an Idea, posting a picture of Swift, which fortunately i saw near my office. by looking at the colors i found it will suit more on Punto, pls share your opinions.

    @Hammad Khan, Welcome to the forum.

    Personally I think this is great deal mate. For 30K you are getting the whole car painted plus a long list of freebies that are thrown in (somehow I still feel this is too good to be true :)) . If you are confident about the person whom you are dealing with, you should take it up and proceed. Do post some before and after pictures of the car.

    Cheers,
    Pradeep.

    Thats a good deal.. go for it, and as suggested by @PradeepM ensure the person whom you are dealing with.
    Do post the before and after pics of the car as well.

    I think this is great deal. In April 2015 when I enquired for Linea painting ( whole car painting ) cost, the person at Pandit auto Bavdhan pune told me it will require 75 thousands rupees minimum and could be increase upto 90 thousand. Sky moto service center's Mr. Kunal told me 45000 rupees to paint whole car.

    Look at Fiat's reckoner price list people..!!

    Don't take everything without a pinch of salt esp. when it comes to money. Last I checked whole car tier 1 city rates were about 55k+- for Linea or Punto don't remember but should be in that range. That's Fiat's official approved rate. Pandit's rates were lesser back then and now Pandit aint official, yet Pandit has high reputation for the most part. Also note detailed strip down work can easily cost upto 1lac and have seen the level of work at Torrid Fiat which was done on some cars. By the way for Mumbai Pune guys Torrid Fiat body work is good quality and thorough job with proper task force and the goto guy is Mr. Sampat Salve. They can't adhere to schedules but material and quality is great. Blame the late work to both Torrid and Fiat management equally. But if you are in no hurry they do a detailed job. Especially the metal part of it including sanding welding priming and painting to the finishing using first quality paint materials. No skimming there for sure..!
    Also note rates differ for both water based and solvent based paints. Water based being preferred for finish and environmental reasons too I guess.
