    I would really like to install a carputer with a 7 inch screen. How about a nice mini ITX-based build?

    Future generation FIAT Punto/Linea in India

    Hi,

    Currently Fiat India is having Punto and Linea in fleet. If we assume that these two cars remain there for next 10 years as an offering, what modifications would you require in current cars?

    From my side:
    1. Sunroof in both Punto and Linea
    2. A/T option for those cumbersome city jams. (Nowadays we are seeing heavy traffic jams on NH4 nearby Katraj also, Punekars know what I am talking about)
    3. Black/beige colour combination for Punto same as in Linea.
    4. Cruise control (??)
    5. Good quality headlamps, maybe xenons??
    6. Curtain/side airbags in Linea at least
    7. Same seats of Linea in Punto

    Please do not ask to improve interior plastic quality and service. Enough has been discussed about these already.

    Mods, please remove this thread if it is inappropriate.

    All suggestions are welcome from FIAT enthusiasts here.

    Bring on 1.6 MJD in Punto / Linea thats the best FIAT could do to take over all the rivals.

    Improvements needed with new punto:
    - Retain the current external looks on front elevation.
    - New tail lamps, punto evo design.
    - New rear bumper design, similar to bravo.
    - Rubber beadings fit and quality need imrovement (Doors).
    - All new interiors with soft touch materials.
    - All new ICE with great sounding speakers.
    - Seating Ergonomics has to improve.
    - Retain the hydralic steering.
    - New Sleek Six speed manual gear box.
    - New 1.3L MJD-2 Engine is needed.
    - Easy Engine kill and ignition switch.
    - Importantly Show room price should remain same.

    my wishlist (I'm not talking about performance parts at all)

    in dash MMI integrated with sat nav
    boot open by remote(like in the linea)
    softer indoor materials all around
    better fit and finish
    Brake wear and TCS sensors installed
    better suspension

    That would also be nice. What I want to see is wear calculated in kms not percent
    .that will give the user an idea of what needs to be done
    Personally I have a bad habit of replacing things before using them fully
