Do it! This is basically what I have had done today:

1. Chopped off the old backbox and exhaust. The outler layer of steel was correded, which was hanging off. Researching the forums, this is a common fault on punto's as they don't use stainless steel on stock. Removed all old pipes back to the Catconverter

2. We then tested the natural sound which was delightfully raw and loud. Even without no backbox, it wasn't overly aggressive however decided on a very small backbox for peace of mind. Didn't want a headache when driving on the motorway

3. Looked at a few exhausts for my car. The cut-out on the bumper is really only big enough for a single exhaust. We looked at 2 x small pipes which would fit however looked like a toy car. Eventually went for the biggest oval slice-back style exhaust we could fit.

Overall definatley would recommend it. The garages takes photo's and videos of most cars they work on. As soon as he has uploaded, I will link you to it. It won't disappoint

Just dropped the car off at the garage looking to get the below Eibach Pro Kit springs fitted. Was slightly confused that the Pro Kit are red and not black as advertised however TMC have confirmed this is correct... Phew

I managed to find those on Ebay last night. How easy it is to remove the front and rear badges to stick these on?

You've lost me a little bit... I know it sounds stupid but after looking at my badges today my brain just can't work it out! Any chance of explaining how you done yours or a guide?

Re: kidpunto's White Punto Evo Sporting

Hey, how do you like the lowering springs? Would you happen to have a before/after picture? I got a sporting in exactly the same spec as yours I was wondering about the springs since i think a sporting is already lower than an standard one. Does it still drop the promised inch?

They are great, it lowers it by an inch and you can definitely tell when washing the car, the roof feels alot lower.

1inch is a great amount for me, you can feel the road more and feels like it can handle corners better as long as you have good tyres haha. However sometimes from looking at the rear, it feels I should if dropped it an extra inch due to the rear bumper's design.

Before


After
