Re: RuSZ' Stilo 1.8 16v Dynamic

Few hours and grazzed knuckes will sort it... my mj is in a bad state. Or was but all is removed now... no suspension on the car. No shocks. All waiting for.coiolovers tomorrow and noticed my rear pads are less than 1mm left so that will be done on Friday... tomorrow intercooler is coming off for a deep clean and various bits and bobs are getting cleaned up and painted to protect them. Im loving this, i feel the love coming back now.

Re: RuSZ' Stilo 1.8 16v Dynamic

It must be a crappy rear brake setup on these things. Must be very little in the way of bias to the rear which means the calipers never move much and leads to them seizing. They seem a right sodding nightmare.

Glad you're back on the road again though matey and out of the missus' car

Re: RuSZ' Stilo 1.8 16v Dynamic

So payday has rolled around once more. And as a result of that, and the car having an MOT, i have ordered a few things for the Stilo.

Here's upcoming plans. Going for a bit of a stealth look.

Ordered Flyeye kit. So going to Flyeye the front headlights and side repeaters

Ordered external temperature sensor. Coz I'm fed up of the car always saying it's -25 and not having Aircon.

Ordered Wind Deflectors, because why not.

Plans:
Debadge the tailgate getting rid of the grey FIAT logo and tacky Stilo badges.

Remove rear window wiper and bung the hole.

Tint rear windows, tailgate and sunroof

Change the alloys. Ideally blades, but know there has to come by.

@jatkinson still got the debadge front grille?
