    Hi! I have a 2015 Punto Evo 90HP. Need info on headlamp upgrade for my car. I feel it is insufficient on highways. Have the following questions guys. Please give your take on them.
    1. Projector Head lamps or conventional?
    2. Brand of lamps
    3. Ambient foot well lamps on the cards too. So which ones are good?

    For Punto Evo, I would prefer projector headlight setup.

    you can check out Ktmotorcycle.com where you can buy HID projector setup.

    It also provides CANBUS ballast which wont throw any error on MID.

    You can also select the angel/demon eye color as per your choice while ordering the setup.

    It will be bit costly but worth every penny. I had their projector setup on my Grande Punto.

    I am not big fan of ambient lights so wont comment on that.

    I would suggest to try first 90/100 lamps upgrade, if not satisfied then aux lamps like Hella will work
    If still not satisfied then projector setup

    No aux please!:inpain: Punto is sauch a splendid beauty, AUX lights just kill the whole looks of it. As kedar said try to source good projector kit with canbus ballast. Trust me its more than sufficient & would enhance the looks of your punto apparently.:angelic:

    Please dont use cheap chinese projector setup . Try https://www.theretrofitsource.com/ you can go for mini h1 7th version or FXR 3.0 setup. These setup roughly cost you 24k- 30k including shipping exclusive customs.If you dont want to get into trouble and want cheap then go for chinese ones costing 15k for a setup

    AFAIK, the headlights are not monitored on our cars. Even if a headlight bulb blows, there is no error shown on the MID. So, why do we need a CAN BUS ballast?

    @i_mysterious1 - Since the Punto has a single H4 bulb, replacing with a projector that uses a shield for high and low beams - so called bi-xenon projectors - is not a good idea. HID bulbs are not meant to be flashed. If you have the habit of flashing your headlights to pass during daytime, expect the HID bulb's life to be dramatically short

    Thanks a lot guys! Appreciate your advice.
    I visited my service centre yesterday. The Sevice advisor warned me against headlamp upgrade saying it would void my warranty. Any news on that,please?

    Make sure the guy doesn't cut existing wire harness. It should be a plug n play adaptor kind. It shouldn't void the warranty.
