    No, There is no need to look at any other car, KA45N7 is the the best modded punto in India.

    What is the onroad cost of the vehicle now with all these mods?

    If you are not having a bumpy ride, the credit should go to the suspension setup of this beauty.
    Though my personal choice would've been a slightly thicker tyre purely for the looks part of it.

    Enjoy many more miles buddy.

    thicker tire = lesser grip, 195 is best suitable size but in 17 inch 205 is only available in india

    Can you please explain me how???
    AFAIK Thickness is in no way related to grip.

    The grip is directly proportional to the width of the tyre.
    More width=more contact area=more friction=more grip.

    The thickness is inversely proportional to the bumpy ride.
    more thickness=more rubber=more cussioning effect=less bumpy ride

    oops i mean to say more Wider the tier than its OG stock size = lesser the grip
    even i also think same as like you but m not saying theoretically but practically because when i used 225 215 205 with 17 and 195 in 15 inch i got best griping level on 195 but overall 205 is best suitable it really improved cornering at high speed and griping is also good
