    Hi Anoop,

    Thanks for ur suggestions. I want to paint OVRMS in white. Even i am not thinking to paint door handles.
    Trying to find some stickering kinda ( as suggested by kedar) Carbon fiber Vinyl .

    Carbon Fiber kind of Vinyls sounds nice, but will it be easy to stick them to the counters of the mirror? I am not sure stickers will give you same effect as paint.

    If you can get a carbon fiber casing for the mirror like this it will be awesome :)

    Shashank CF Vinyl wont give you quality like paint. It is difficult to paste CF on corners of OVRMs.

    dude i was there in hyderabad.. And my friend took me to a street..which is famous for car accessories..
    To my surprise.. Most of them dint understand waht cf vinyls was... Had to come back empty handed..
    It was a sunday.. And many shops where close.. Or dint have stock.. Some shop keeps wont mention the price unless we mention what car and what our purpose is..

    Get it painted man.I got my Exotica RED Punto active door handles and mirrors painted.The total quote from Tata ASS itself was 2k, But I convinced SA to give it as free and it was done free of cost.The paint job has come excellent since they mix it in a proper proportion.

    Today my punto clocked 26000KM in 9 months . So far this beast encountered Highways...Rugged Village roads & equally in City.
    But No single noticable Rattle till date. Thanks to build quality of Fiat.


    I just want to update the Maintainance cost since AUG2011.

    First service : 5200KM
    Compliant : Weird sound at left suspension.
    Cause : The engine guard was loose and it was rectified.

    Cost : NIL

    Second Service : 14800Km
    Complaints : Nothing as such.
    Cost : 4952 Rs.

    Brake pad replacement at 24800KM
    Cost : 3400Rs

    Total : 8352 Rs.


    So folks can you suggest me what are precautions to be taken for Next service which is due in 3k Kms.
    One observation is when AC is ON....i can hear Loud sound . Is that common in Punto Or should i take to vehicle check-up.
    Please suggest.
