    Those are roof bars for carrying luggage. :) They aren't the roof rails that DBA paaji are talking about.

    Actually these are Rails only and are modified depending on what u intent to carry [eg. bikes , skis , row-boats etc.] ...

    Even on SUVs the Luggage racks are usually bolted on the roof rails [seen for sure on Fortuner] !!!

    One can even try Sparks roof rails . It might fit . It would be very difficult to get Roof Rails specific for Punto .
    They cost somewhere betweeen Rs.700-1500/- only .

    Yes, I got you but see the point is that those Fiat roof bars are to be fixed into the space provided in Punto/Linea for attaching the luggage carrier. So here they have a specific purpose.

    I think the roof rails of Spark, Beat, i20, WagonR are primarily for cosmetic purposes.

    Pardon me for being off-topic, is it possible to remove roof rails and have a smooth plane finish on the roof, without anything being left behind like a tree stump.

    I want to get it off from my Spark (its just too silly and reminds me of old Amby taxis) only if it can be removed cleanly. Pointers will be very helpful.

    Mods: Please delete this post if deemed necessary.

    oh man.. it looks awesome..
    For some reason i have a feeling that the front is looking different from our puntos..
    The head lamps look a little more angular and the front bumper section seems to be rounded off a bit more than our cars... it feels more so in the 1st picture..
    Is it just my eyes or is anyone else also seeing the same?

    I think the front bumper is re-done. Look the missing fog lamps and holders. There is only one fog lamp and quite near to the bottom grill. Its an aftet market bumper for sure.
