    I am planning to buy Punto EVO Tail lamps for my Grande Punto 90HP from UK.

    I got a DIY thread on FIAT forum here is the link.

    Can you guys please let me know what parts are needed and is it available in India or do I need to buy required parts for this DIY from UK.

    Experts please reply. It is very important DIY for me. He mentioned some parts to remove the error message on MID. Please let me know about those parts please.

    personally i feel that these lights wont stand out as it is very much similar to the OE lights used now. Until you tell a person the noticeable difference will be negligible. Wont it be better to go for an aftermarket one..
    Im looking out for this particular model to get it installed in my GP. Can you source it for me from UK. They have tail lamps too

    Nimish I searched for LED tail lights as well but if you will install them it will through an error message on MID and I dont have information about how to remove that error message.
    I liked design of OEM tail lamps then these tail lamps.

    In flesh it looks amazing in night. The stop is too good.

    romis car has 11 error messages when he starts.. :D. He is happily living with it for the past one year. Check headlight, check fog light,check rear tail light etc.. Once there is a volt difference the canbus circuit will show an error message

    Yes, I have read in Fiat forum. Need to add a resistor and make some changes in connectors.

    Experts comments please. I need advise on what parts I need to source from UK along with the set of these tail lights or everything is available in India? Where are the experts on this forums?

    i dont know how well it works.. But when i visited a guy in blr ( for angel eyes) i also asked him to take a look at this and showed him a many photos of how i want the tail lamp to be..
    He said he can do it..
    The thing is you need to remove the entire lamp assy and use a heat gun to burn through the housing to get the deign you want. Then its only a matter of getting the right LEDs.
    I didn't get the courage to go ahead when he spoke about burn, heat gun and all :)
    now i'm thinking of it again.

    theblack these tail lights are direct fit to Grande punto which is confirmed from FIAT spare part division. We took measurement as well and these are OEM FIAT tail lamps.
