Goodbye and hello

Well its goodbye to the 09 BNW 1.2 Lounge and hello to a 10 BNW 1.4 Sport.

Decided to swap as I am going to sell my Mjet GPS and see if we can manage with the one car. Should be fun!

I just needed a bit more power if I am going to be a regular driver.

Like the car a lot, comes with lots of extras and got a cracking deal to boot.

Not got to be modding it too much but I have a set of Abarth leather seats if I can pursuade Jan.....

Re: Goodbye and hello

Did you not fancy an Abarth then? When you said "need more power" for some reason i thought of the Abarth!

If only, this is a compromise, she will not drive an Abarth too quick apparently.

I drive a mapped Mjet and she scared herself silly when she drove it!

A car is only as quick as you want it to be

Definitely. I'm always surprised at how well my 500 overtakes at times (mostly due to being able to carry a decent amount of speed through roundabouts!) but it aint no sports car, nor is it a hot hatch or even a lukewarm hatch I do always laugh when I see someone on here going on about how great the 1.2 is and how fast it is, seems some people have never driven or been in something remotely quick!!!!

Re: Goodbye and hello

Off topic but how much were your Brembo calipers and do they fit MJT without any mods?
Cheers

Re: Goodbye and hello

You mean my GP Mjet with the Abarth Brembos. Pop over to the GP section but briefly.....

They fit with no modifications.

You will also need new Abarth wheels to clear the caliper

Retail they are not cheap probably 1500, but I have a mate in the trade and got mine at trade prices.

Superb performance though.......
