    most of the interior plastic parts in my punto (old Active version) are black. you might have an alternative to vinyls for some parts in case they fit in linea

    Oh you will get hundreds of pages of results.

    Including S&H. Neither. Direct purchase from spares dealer.

    Oh. The mod will have to wait till the part arrives. If you want to watch how the vinyl wrapping contraption works, you are most welcome. Just promise me you will not laugh if it turns out to be a damp squib.

    The plastic quality seems to be different between the Puntos and Lineas of that timeframe (Sept / Oct 2010), as compared to the T-Jet. Also sourcing them might be a challenge. If the wrapping exercise fails, then that would be the next option, before deciding to paint. Also considering 3D matt CF wrap as an alternate, as the black I used in the picture posted in this thread is not the same as the black plastic in the car and looked odd. So, I unwrapped it :D.

    Any idea where I can get this done (in Bangalore)?

    Not sure in Bangalore, but you can check out Kit Up. They are based out of Coimbatore. However, if you are in Bangalore (Read "World's Speed Bump Capital"), lowering the GC any further is suicidal.

  5. my opinion save your money for performance mods not visual mods
    I went for that and almost all my friends done that

    Not sure if this is in response to nareshov's query or for my thread in general. If it is for my thread, thanks. Most of the mods I have in mind are either functional or improved aesthetics, to suit my taste. Performance mods are some where in the bottom of the list, but they are on the list, nevertheless :D

    Thanks for your opinion.

  7. It was for your thread in general

    and here is my opinion


    • 16" or 17"? I know I will have to go with 215/45 R17, if I decide to go for 17". Question is, how much of ride comfort am I compromising on? I would go for 16 as my friend has 17" in his car and it is extremely un-comfort especially in bad road condition I think here in Egypt is as bad as yours :(
    • Paint the alloys BNW with a red lip? Or should I go with black lip? Or just BNW? Or maybe Gunmetal? depends in your car color
    • Multi-spoked? Just 5 spokes? i would go for 5 spoke
