    The Punto is a car that makes you go on long drives without reason and good music is a necessity on long drives.

    A flurry of emails and phone calls followed to Ajay Kamat for the Punto ICE install. Finally we zeroed in on the equipment and the install went ahead. I have to add here that I am totally ICE illetrate. Though I have owned cars in the past this was the first time I was upgrading the ICE in my car. Two main reasons for that. One, I don't really like to change the stock setups in my car's - more because I don't like drilling , cutting , splicing etc and second till now I was always short on money!

    Based on my budget, Ajay recommended the set up and I went ahead trusting his word. And I have no regrets!

    Let's take a look at the list of equipment's with pictures that went into my car.

    The Head unit was retained due to the Blue&Me functionality.

    Cost? Should it be disclosed on an open forum?

    Looks to be nice & clean setup. People mentioned on forums that stock Blaupankt does not have RF out & hence gets difficult to connect Amp. How was your experience?
    Someone installed it also mentioned that his Amp remains ON always all the time even when Engine is OFF. May be because of the above difficulty.
  5. That looks neet Amit. Can you give the price breakup and also Ajay Kamat's contact details. Even I am on a hunting spree for ICE upgrades.

    Ive got a similar setup too except i skipped the door damping as of now and also the components...
    Ive added two JBL speakers along with a JBL sub woofer and a Amp to the existing 4 channel Car system without disturbing the HU... There is a provision for an amp out on the HU wherein you gotta get a cable from Blaupunkt which would connect to your amp and thereon u can add on your speakers or woofer to the Amp...
    Its been 4months now and am enjoying the sound on my Punto along with her roars during my long drives...

    Pertaining to amps being on it turns off when the HU is off so no issues yet.

    In the due course of this i lost 100% bootspace which i dont mind loosing for a great setup like this.

    My next add on would be a component speaker with Door Damping done...

    Hi amit, thanks for pointing to this forum. Don't own a Fiat, but won't hurt to look around, I guess. :mrgreen:

    Blaupunkt OE head unit does not have "Pre-amp outputs", or "RCA" outputs, nor does it have a "Remot Turn-on" lead. But the Focal amp has high level inputs with signal sensing. So the amp switches on automatically when it senses a signal on it's speaker level inputs, and goes off when it doesn't.
