    I initially hate it. But after seeing many times I was beginning to love the roofs and it was a unique stuff. I used to think that as a chess board. And the punto is like the knight most dynamic and useful in chess. So that roof symbolizes the dynamics of Punto. :D

    Sun even initially I was not liking it much. But when I saw it in real, it looks excellent. It looks much better in real than in pics.

    Never mind buddy. You can still have white checks on the roof. But it will be a typical chess board design then. As your wife suggested, you can keep it for sometime. Cosmetic changes always keeps your car fresh. Maybe you can plan it for next year. ;)

    I would like to look it as Chequered Flag and not a chess board.

    Was talking to the guys from TeamEnergy regarding carble fibre vinyl wrapping on the dashboard near the glovebox. The guy was saying the wrapping on interior slowly starts to come loose due to the A/C usage. He said he can do it but it will come off slowly. Outside parts of car doesnt have this issue he said. Any idea guys?

    i have tried it on a small portion.. an it doesn't stick properly.. and it does come off.. not sure if its due to the ac... i feel its coz of the texture, material and porous finish.
    may be on a bigger area.. it may stick...

    thanks for the reply Thomman :) . BTW have you put vinyl over the plastic which hold the windscreen washers? putting vinyl is a good way to hide that faded plastic ;)
