    Since it is a BNW it may get the magical treatment from angels, like that happened with ramjn.

    Yes, wait for a day or two. It should align itself in so much heat.
    Looks like easy repairable job though, can't see any scratches which would have made it a bit on costlier side.
    At worst, get the dent removed from some local autowork shop & get it realigned.

    ENKI,
    though not much to worry about the dent, may be tommorow will be driven to TASS (will talk to my friend in TASS )for the check, as i'm already planned for a drive to hyderabad on this weekend(Will enjoy Labour Day :D).

    BTW i loved the front gap between bonnet and bumper ;) only worry about the RHS dent

    Lol... That front gap is really suiting your Punto. I just scrolled up in geek & is in-fact looking nice.
    Check it if only dent can be removed leaving bumper's position intact.

    ENKI,
    i hope you are not making fun of my punto :)
    yes, i'm planning to give black border below head light as well to match the gap...it seems my thinking is diverting now towards graphics and stickering ::D ...

    get it done in some trusted local workshop. this kind of dent wont go on its own. the bumper hasn't come back to shape because some clamp to which it is screwed has got bent. it might just require opening the bumper and straightening the bent clamps to get it back to shape.

    same thing had happened to my punto few months back after jumping a speed breaker at high speed. got it done at a garage for 1200 rs. work was really neat. these garage guys are experts at good finishing, provided u find a good trusted one.

    Now don't blame me. It was you who was finding new designing ques in a dented Punto. I just supported your take.
    Now which car looks better after being dented but there is one, Not my mistake:confused.
    Yes sure, that black border looks a better idea than leaving the bumper misaligned, but even the earlier idea is worth.

    Just noticed today that on the FIAT India website, in the Linea sub-menu, the Punto dash is shown :?. Same thing on the Tjet page.

    It's a small thing, but it shouldn't be there.
