    AC upgraded on my Punto

    Whats up guys.

    On 15th April I got my AC for punto upgraded from Fortune motor sakinaka, thanks to the lead given by Aaron. The guys are really good and very professional. Not only that, they have done a good job in the fitment, no scratches anywhere and the bumper has also been fixed properly, no uneven gaps or rattles.

    On the new AC, sadly I havent got the chance to test it in the heat till now but my initial observations are as follows,

    1) The AC noise inside the car is very low,

    2) There seems to be a certain lag in the pick up of the car , but will have to check when I take the car out again,

    3) It was 6 pm when I got the car back so couldnt check the heat effectiveness in mid day, but one thing I noticed was initially even during the evening times I had to set the AC at 20 degrees for good cooling, The other day it was quite cool and chilling even at 24 with medium fan speed.:p

    Hope this helps.

    New Clothes for Trinity

    Hi guys , I got new seat covers for my Punto , have attached the pics, Look at the pics and tell me if its art leather or pure leather i knw it sounds silly but u can get hints from the fit and finish as im not too sure if it was worth paying the cost that I paid for it. The cost details, the vendor and the specific instruction given for installation will be given out subsequently :D

    Between 20-30 K. It is very difficult to judge from photo. Real look will be different.

    no way as it doesn't look like pure leather. also the fit isn't tight enough. are these the slip on types?

    Well shams, if you are talking abt the creases on the back and in the sitting area then its the design, Which part did did you actually find the seats not tight enough. What Cost do you think I should have paid for them??

    What factors made you guess the price to be 20-30k???

    I am not talking abt the creases Mihir. at the edges of the seats in most places near the stitch(in the first pic) its doesnt look tight. Also the stitch is not sitting right on the edge (3rd pic). maybe i m looking at the pics too closely :):)
    not sure abt the price. Quality of material looks certainly better than art leather though...

    Hahahaha well yes you re looking at the pics closely , but thats because they are zoomed up pics, these things are hardly visible when you actually see the car. lol no worries mate.though what you observed in the 3rd pic is right the stitching is not on the edge but thats because I had some additional padding got done to the existing seats . :)

    It was a wild guess. It looks like starting range of leather. So between 20-30 K. Difficult to judge from picture.
