Re: My Punto MK2 Sporting

Looks very very nice mate

Personally I wouldnt go for M3 mirrors, would prefer colour coded standard mirrors but thats just my personal taste

Other than that I really like it mate, it looks sporty yet subtle at the same time

You know what... I was thinking the exact same thing

As for the colour coded mirrors, you have 3 options really:
- Colour Code your mirrors yourself (the casing can be unbolted and removed for paining)
- Find someone selling Black HGT mirrors as these were colour coded as standard.
- Go to a Fiat parts department and ask them for some replacement mirror caps for a black HGT (now Im not actually 100% sure if Fiat suppy them painted or just primed so I would check that out before purchase if I was you)

I hope that helps mate.

Good luck and keep us posted

Re: My Punto MK2 Sporting

me like..
Can you post a pic of this etched glass, sounds interesting..

I would also colour-code mirrors over m3's but we'll see what you think when they arrive, upto you really. Can i suggest though, no matter which mirrors you go for they'll need painting, so i reckon you should get the bump strips and door handles done at same time, i usually tell people to leave them as they break up the car but on black it makes perfect sense to get them painted, very subtle mod that the untrained eye will hardly be able to tell but will make a visual difference
