    @Italia-Linea,
    Fantastic !!!!!!

    @Italia-Linea,

    Thank you for the reply, went and read your post and the other thread....very informative....got more details about the features of the HUs. You guys are right, I think it makes a lot of sense to replace the OEM HU.

    Can you kindly suggest how easy is it to interface with steering controls? Is it just a matter of unplug stock HU and plug this JVC unit?
    What needs to be done to make the Blue&Me work?
    Can you post a pic of how does it look in the dash in daylight? I've seen the backlit one and that is perfect.

    Thanks in advance,

    Cheers

    Hi @Italia-Linea, Can you point me to the part number of the dynamic/emotion faceplate? The TASS guys insist that it only comes in black color but I'd want it in the silver/gray shade in emotion trim. I searched your threads but missed it.

    I bought the fascia panel directly from the Fiat Service Center. It costs Rs 228. There are two variants - the Dynamic (Gold dust color) and the Active (black). The part number that you need to get is 0059064641.

    Thats good for Linear owners coz it matches with thier interior (gold dust variant) but for us (punto guys-grey colour dash) we have no option but get the black one :(

    @ binu

    P.S - even i have acquired and kept aside fascia plate from TASS for my probable future upgrade. (they said tat it is not available in silver colour, hence i got it painted by them matching with the interior colou of punto dash, ie. silver) PLEASE NOTE there might be variation when u get it painted..they dont promise exact colour matching :( plus you would be charged extra for the paint works.

    I think now all 2012 Puntos come with same interior color for the dash which means the active face plate ought to be silver. Any one agree?

    you can get the fascia panel from Fiat ASS for Rs 228 only. Regarding the steering interface, the only known working solution is Connects2 CTSFA004. Just ensure they don't send you STK277 adapter. You can buy that from Dynamic Sounds website or their Ebay page. Landed cost would be around 5k. Kumars Auto is their Indian dealer, but I've never been able to get a clear answer from them
