    Swifts and I20s are the common choice for modifications. The reasons are very obvious. Only people who know fiat go for it and the others who are enticed with the looks and want to buy a fiat go to the showroom.. The end result is the common man ends up purchasing a MANZA... courtesy to the sale guys who try to frighten them on the adversities of owning the Fiat brand.

    The difficulty in doing the mods for the Punto and Linea is the after sales support, lack of technical knowledge, difficulty in sourcing parts and hi end mechanicals which are hard to tamper with.

    The objective of this project is to convey the message that the punto can be even better. The primary upgrade would be tyres and alloys. People have issues with the PCD conversion and spigot rings which needs sound technical adviser to work on. A lay man would not venture into such an option. We at TFI should be able to promote and impart the knowledge we have so we could see more Puntos on road.

    The hardest part is that the punto and linea by itself is too beautiful and owners are reluctant to make changes.....

    Absolutely correct. Each and every curve of these fiat cars are so crucial and it need a double thought to alter them. Which is not the case with other cars.

    Those seat covers looks like giving extra thigh support. What is the material for seat cover?
