    99 rpm shows the price for the liner as Rs 348/- which was same as quoted by Fiat, but the accessories costed almost Rs 150/- Why would Fiat sell the fender liner and the nuts/bolts/brackets seperately when they will be used for the said spare part only.

    Its probably because they want to charge for only those which are consumed, maybe for the benefit of customer?
    Most of the time liners, moulds etc are broken leaving the nut and bolts in place, in those cases one doesnt need to pay for the nuts and bolts.

    Experts,

    Yesterday when the HU was playing the CD, I tried to select the USB drive using steering controls. However even after the selection, the CD still continued playing as if it was over ruling the USB selection. Is there any way to select the USB drive when I playing the CD? Or am I missing something?

    My wife happened to get hold of a free foam wash coupon from 3M, decided to make full use of it at the 3M centre in Thane. The car was already covered in dust thanks to me firing the regular wash boy in my society. Took the car to 3M last Friday and the results were to see.

    Pics before the foam wash.

    The car is back in shape and supposed to be how it is. A clean BNW Punto is a head turner for sure.

    Experts,

    Lately have been hearing lot on engine noise ingressing inside the cabin. Down the volume a little bit and the noise it distinctly heard. Initially thought it was the Acceleres, but I am sure its a combination of both the engine and the tyres. Checked the deadening pad below the bonnet and its intact. Any ideas to strenghten the pad? Should I get them on the doors too? What options do I have?

    Its not that I dont like the engine sound but too much over the time is a little irritating. Suggestions please.

    Check for the engines mounts and engine guard,Air filter assembly.
    if everything is fine then only option is soothing music, which you are have already adopted.

    After a long time some inputs to my thread.

    Got the FIAT stickers installed on my Stallion. This was done weeks after receiving the stickers from Rishikesh, finally got today to stick them. Had help from Bro-in-law. But the stickers need hello lot of effort. The first pasting was getting damaged, had to do it extra carefully. Lots of bubbles appearing, had to take them out which was time consuming. I wished I had taken professional help.

    Now if I get the Scorpion Sticker that will complete the look. Can some one confirm where can I buy/get one?

    Attached for reference. Special thanks to Rishikesh for giving me those stickers. I owe you one man.
