For seat height increase, I would suggest get some seat cover, with extra layer of cushion.
for seat covers take a look at following FB page..
Don't go for seat covers from dealers they are not worth of it ..for sure.
I assume the question was about underbody anti-rust coating. So how do we protect the underbody from speed-breaker scrapes and rain?
The factory has already given the Linea/Punto a coating and that is all which is needed. This isn't a Honda Brio where there is no protection whatsoever from the factory and clever Honda guys try to sell you such coatings. It's a different matter that I told them I would rather let the car rot than pay them
whats your height Prashant? i guess you should leave the seat as it is. you will get used to it in a matter of few days
Its very simple. Procure the rachet from FASS and remove yours and install the new height adjustable ones.
Secondly better than cushion way install spacers below the seat rail. Even thich washers which come in variable sizes will do.
Nest option is buy polyurethene bushes and put them below the seat rails. this will increase the height permenantely. If you are not comfortable with that height buy thinner bushes. you can try various combinations. Will cost you just 100 rs
Many Thanks! I wud most probably go by THIS advice! This is the charm of joining a forum like this! You are surrounded by highly experienced people. Thnx again!""
My height is 5'9". My wife's height is 5'2" & she is adamant on learning how to drive AND that too with a brand new Fiat Punto!! Last but not the least, if the height of the driver's seat is not adjusted as per her convenience, you all know the repurcussions
Hey Pranjan, i'm 5'7''. And i too have an Active, i don't find any problem with the seat height at all! And i believe Thicker cushioning would just spoil the overall experience and won't provide enough increase in the overall height!
i would suggest to drive the car for atleast a month after buying without doing anything to the seat height!
i am sure you will get adjusted to it pretty easily.
If you are still not satisfied, then go ahead and do the alteration
