New Grande Punto.

Bought my new car Wednesday, love it! Was going to go for C2 VTS, though my mind soon changed the second I sat in it.

Does anybody have any ideas as to what I can do with regards to tints etc?

I want to avoid the chavy look (like my old corsa) but do want to modfy it.

Black mirrors? How dark should I get tints? Any ideas would be great!

Nice car, what engine you running? Id go for a 25% tint all round, thats what im planning for mine anyway. Think your first mod should be lowering, looks bit of a 4x4 will look spot on with a few mods

Yes they are, your choice though if you want them, just got to live with the consequences if you get in trouble.

Re: New Grande Punto.

A lot of people dont like it when the rear drums are sprayed because drums arent as good as discs, but i dont mind it.
