    Hi All,

    I have booked a Punto Evo 1.3 active and have been waiting for the registration and delivery. Im going for a 2014 model as I got reasonable offer for the previous year car. Unfortunately no dynamic variant is available. Now I am willing to do the below mentioned cosmetic changes which doesn't exist in Active. Is it possible to replace the already existing below mentioned parts with the following ones of the higher variants.
    1. Gear knob of dynamic variant.
    2. chrome coated inner door handle
    3. Outer silver door handles
    4. rear head-rest
    5. front grill chrome(horizontal part at the middle of the grill). Refer attached image. dsc_0434-jpg.66032.jpg

    Congrats on the buy. The mods you have listed seem more like a cosmetic changes. Does the Active variant comes with front fog lamps?? Or the pic attached was just for representation??

    Dear Ghodlur,

    No, active variant doesn't come with front fog lamp. Only the emotion and 90hp variant comes with front fog lamps. The previously attached pic was for reference.

    Any idea about the cost of dynamic/emotion variant's gear knob? I couldn't find it online. As you can see in the attached pic with this reply, active variant misses, chrome door(inner) handle and comes with a simple gear knob.

    Thanks

    Vibin,

    i would suggest you to avoid Gear knob, i have seen some cars where the knob has been peeled off and it looks disgusting.

    Thanks

    I will suggest instead of gear knob of dynamic, go for 90hp leather one.
    Rear seat rest of active are fixed I guess. So you will required to replace the complete back seat for neck rest.
    For Door handles outer & inner go for again 90 hp.

    Thanks Bibin, pdash and rishike007 for your advice..Got the car delivered yesterday. I am planning to change the horns alone for now since the current one is a single tone and sounds too feeble. Emotion comes with a dual-tone horn. Also, please suggesnt me if I should go for any kind of coating??

    Posted a daytime pic.

    Congrats. First and foremost remove that blue strip tied to the bonnet. It adds swirls and scratches to the bonnet.

    While upgrading the horn ensure to get horns that have same coupler as provided by Fiat, so that there is minimum wire addition. Hella has a few horns which come with coupler, check my ownership update to get pics.

    Coating is good if you want to spend money on it, but coating is effective if it get correct curing, just applying it is not that great. Also, before you do any coating, do ensure proper paint correction is done if required and all swirls are fixed....

    Nice choice of color
