My stock Seicento...

So this is the "beast" at the moment, this is how i bought it a few months back, and it has been outside the house while i've been learning to drive. Today is the 10th of June and my driving test is on the 12th, so after that my Seicento will properly be on the road and in use and to be honest i really cant wait, it's such a fun little thing to drive.

--
At present it has standard size wheels and the standard trims fitted, over the time i have been learning to drive there have been lot's of idea's going through my head about what could be done to improve the car and such.

--
The first thing that i have done to the car is that i managed to pick up a set of the standard Seicento sporting alloy wheels for 60, two of which had tyres, the other two didn't. In all honesty they were a bit grubby but they were so hard to find it was ridiculous. Not many good scrappers round here .
After i got those wheels home i nipped out to the local auto parts shop, bought some wet and dry and some black matte spray paint and immediatly got to work, and here is the result, they are only put up against the car because they do not have the new tyres as of yet, but that should be happening in the next few days.


All in all, my seicento has had nothing done to it performance wise, but i imagine that is subject to change, so if any other Seicento owner's have done modifications to their cars, it would be appreciated if you share it with me here because after all, im only 17 and i dont really know alot about them, so some help would be awesome

Tidy

Before you get too into modifying it you're going to need to check that your insurance company isn't going to charge you the Earth for making changes.

(the first thing I'd do is lower it and fit an Anti-Roll Bar from a Sporting)

Re: My stock Seicento...

Hi Scott, very nice looking car you've got there
Are you made of money? If not, don't modify anything! I know the temptation is great but it'll cost you way too much in insurance. Just keep your head down, drive her sensibly and keep her well serviced. Once you've got a few years NCB under your belt, then you can start looking at modifying!
Unless you are made of money, in which case ignore what I just said and turbo it

Re: My stock Seicento...

as above, enquire about insurance, but a couple little mods worth doing and to get some experience (apologies if you have plenty lol) debadge the rear, to get it looking smooth and tidy, colour the plastic bumpstrips, good wash and clean, set of 'aero' wipers imo really make a nice touch, oh and some 'silvertech' indicator bulbs for those clear lenses
