    NImish,
    Very neat and clean modifications.Alloy color is perfectly matching with the OVRM Caps.i was also expecting the front mesh grill(upper and lower) as well in red color.:rolleyes:

    Well ganges. Red is not a color which is appreciated or liked by many. In my personal view i am not a fan of red. I went with the Abarth esseesse with the red alloy and white/black combo. OVRM caps are partially painted red. The car has lost its sober touch and has become a bit loud with the red garnish. Lower and upper grill in red would be overdone. Anyways project sporte is not over. Its just a second stage ;)

    Nimish, whatever you've said is correct.. I too feel the same way when ever i put my hands into these mods.. But at the end of the day I always feel Punto is probably the only car in the indian market right now that can take all these without crying foul..
    I've always had people come up to me and tell me what a great looking car I have and every i get something new done to my car there is always someone appreciating it.. Makes me feel that punto can take it all...
    Just need more Vitamin M that's all ;-)

    Sparco pedals

    I Nimish iam a great fan of pedals for cars and i love so much as i decided go for one for my beauty 90hp i opted for the same piece which is on your car because it was piece love at first sight which sparco as,i bought from the guy (Bangalore) who is the main dealer/distributor for sparco range goods in india he told me its DIY job you take home and get it done,i bought the pedals and tried to fix the thing,i was not able becuase the pedals of the sparco were flat and the Punto pedals are bend towards inside i cant fix it,so i took the car and the pedals to the dealer and asked him to fix he tried and told me the same thing that the pedal of sparco is flat and the puntos is bend it cant happen and he refunded me the amount i was sad for that but you have fixed the same thing on your punto pls explain how it can be done without spoiling the stock pedal and the new sparco pedal i will be waiting

    Well the pedals change the in car ambiance to a great extent. Well fixing the pedals is not a DIY. U have to take the rubber cover of the pedal and then get it drilled and screwed to the existing pedal. It takes some time and patience and its can be done at any local garage and does not require any skilled labour. The info that the spc dealer has given you is wrong. Its just coz the same has been fixed on a couple of puntos in Teamfiatmoto club.

    Well when u say red.. many people are averse and the liking of the color takes a different view. I have people following me stopping my car and asking me from where did i source those alloys and even got a lot of positive updates on my fb page after the red theme. But i have had people who called me and said. WTF have u done with your alloys and are you insane. So i feel its just a matter of human perception and loud colours may appeal or may be unappealing based on the person.

    As i know im fine with my color but find it a bit loud to take it to my office :-D

    The sparco pedals dont have to be bend. It just fits to any OE pedal.
    TO do the lip in FRP u need to make a mould and the same could be done in FRP. I spoke with a guy and he is ready to get the entire body kit done if there are orders. Minimum order is 5. So if there are 5 orders i can get it done for u.
