First Post, New Member Modding question

Hey guys, I have a Grande Punto 1.2 Active in Blue and I was just wondering if I purchased a Abarth Grande Punto back bumper, would it fit on my 1.2 Active?

Welcome!

Essentially yes it would with some work, but, it wouldnt match up with the rest of the car as the abarth has black trim running around the car. Can I ask the reason why you want the bumper? You can always paint/vinyl a rear diffusor if that's what your looking for?

would be pretty good if you could make it fit, think it would be fairly impossible with the arch trim, don't really think you could remove it, but still 25!?

Re: First Post, New Member Modding question

Yeh that is why I wanted to know, and in regards to getting a different defuser I only actually like the look of the Abarth one and I did notice the extra 'R' on the Abarth lol, do you reckon there is anyway that I can take off the trims? or maybe I can filler over them and get it resprayed? as the one on Ebay is in red and I need it blue

Re: First Post, New Member Modding question

????? Anyone think that would work? or do you think that the arches are slightly wider?

It could be done no doubt, depends how deep your pockets are. I'm not too sure as to what is under the trim on the abarth bumper, could be impossible to do for all I know, it may not match up at all! I guess youve also looked at the Linea diffusor? I know what you mean though, much prefer the abarth one to any other because of the fins.

Hope someone has an idea as to whether it would fit properly!

I'm just going to buy it and go for it because I have just received a check for 3ko from my insurance because some girl wrote off my last Grande Punto in January I called her Trish, short for Patricia the Punto, I miss her

Sorry to hear that! Time to start Patricia mk2! 25 for a abarth bumper is pretty good, if all goes wrong i'm sure you could flog it for double that no problem, best to talk to a body shop and see what they could do.

Someone on here will know how much work it is to do, unfortunately not me though!
