Re: Something tells me this isnt an HGT!!

It has the HGT interior. I think it just looks odd because it's missing its HGT alloys..

Re: Something tells me this isnt an HGT!!

Also just got a sporting kit on and its listed as an HGT.

A lot of people do buy silly wheels and sell the standards when they have cars like this and then put some cheap steelies on when they sell it because they keep their new wheels for their new car. But why would the front bumper be changed? Accident damaged or an incorrect listing.

Edit: Autotrader reg checker lists it as:
Quote Quote:
Vehicle Registration Mark: MA03NLU
Make: FIAT
Model: PUNTO HGT 16V
Transmission & fuel type: MANUAL 5 GEARS PETROL
Body Type: 3 DOOR HATCHBACK
Colour: BLACK
So looks legit but just not an abarth and steelies have been put on, probably sold origional wheels, they fetch good money.

Re: Something tells me this isnt an HGT!!

Hmm, is anyone else thinking front-end damage so severe that even the alloys got toasted?

If you're thinking of buying wouldn't it be wise to do a HPI check on the reg and view the car before bidding?

I doubt it would still exist if that had happened.

Looks like its got speaker wires in the boot...been de-badged and possibly lowered. So guessing it did have some other wheels on at some point.
