    Anything is doable, I once hacked/reprogrammed a very old celeron based zida motherboard to accept 160gb hdds when max possible was 32gb limit. This when everyone I knew said was impossible !

    Yes, but then there aren't many Punto Evo RHD dashboards on Ebay atleast..

    What can I say, buy yourself Himgange oil instead..:-D

    I know what you are talking about. ;) But then, exterior mods are different from an interior dashboard change, and costs peanuts in comparison.

    approx 250 to 300 pounds for a used dashboard at UK ebay+customs charges. IDK, maybe if he is lucky he can get things cheaper as well.
  6. Why can't you wait until FIAT launches the refreshed Linea in India?

    Hi all,

    Thanks for all for sharing the views .. , I was tempted by the new dashboard :evilsmile of punto, so thought of this .. but seems a bit complex though :cool:.

    when is the face lifted fiat punto getting launched in India ? I repeatedly hear that it will be in 2014 .. but there are no approximate timelines.. beginning/mid/end ?

    Also there are lot of different versions of anticipated new 2014 Punto.. floating around ...
    can some members please update on how the 2014 punto will look like.. :geek:

    @gazgotta - I am a bit disappointed that you gave up so easily. I believe the face lifted version should be here in the beginning of 2014. If I were to consider this, I will check feasibility, costs, utility, etc. before making a decision on doing or abandoning and not base my decision on feedback from a few people on the forum, but I guess that is just me :D

    One way out will be to look out for it in the scrap market in countries where this model is available. It may be from a crashed vehicle, a insurance write off...etc where nothing would have happened to the dahboard. You can get it real cheap and then try the refit. But it needs effort to locate in the first place and then fixing it is another. Nothing impossible.
