    Guys,
    I'm confused now. I came across wheel arch protections and was thinking of getting them. But then someone said that Punto comes with them by default!! I got this doubt a long time back. I checked Puntos in office parking lot and they didn't have any.
    I was going through Kishore's ownership thread and I think I saw wheel arch protection. The ones in the below link are what I'm referring to.

    The grande puntos do come with those covers which are mentioned on 99rpm as well with Fiat part nos. Not sure about Evo but I don't see a reason why they should not be present. More often than not they are soiled mud so you might have missed noticing.

    It's weird! I've shot off an email to FIAT asking for a clarity. Note that I'm not talking about the mudflaps :) In the below image, the body that's visible above the tyre, is that covered in your cars?

    The rear ones are short and do not cover the tyres fully as you can see in the 99rpm pic. The picture of your car is showing the area which is not covered by rear linings.

    @Ravi Varma Sorry mate. I initially mistook it for mud flaps. Hence all the confusion around. :oops:

    Well mine is same like yours. There isn't any wheel arch cover as such.
