    The rear track, whether same as that of the Linea, and mounting points (whether available on the Punto rear torsion beam) would be the only considerations i think of swapping the Linea ARB.

    If an exact match, then the swap will only be beneficial. It's common to put in anti roll bars where none exist in the first place(where aftermarket support is present) , or to put in a much stiffer one than originally present.

    Cheers.

    Hi All,

    What is the current tyre size Punto Emotion? mine is June-2010 model and has 175/70 R14. Recently I saw an Emotion variant and had slimmer tyres.

    Yep I too noticed this a few days ago and thought it was forgotten in the factory itself. Over at TASS had a look underneath the bonnet of another car - and surprise - it had none :shock: My determination to confront the SA just fizzled out, had to make a face saving retreat lest he gives me a look "Consider yourself lucky, at least you have one." :grin:

    Thats unfair. :( I heard that new punto's doesn't hvae the foot level AC vent under the front seats. is this true? Is it all part of the cost cutting?

    I think FIAT has the only option to make profit which is cost cutting
