Re: Pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaase can you help me :)

I think the wheels will look fine, but that you may get some rubbing on the rear arches, especially with 195/45/14s (which would be the performance tyre choice) on. So you may need to roll the arch. 35et would be a better choice (use 8mm spacers at the front) and gives you a wider front track relative to the rear, which helps turn in.

The bumper isn't that difficult: really you need to remove the front wheels and the arch liner to see where it's bolted on by the wheel arch. Shine a torch up there.

Re: Pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaase can you help me :)

front bumper is probably the easiest - two bolts under the wheel arch liner, two under the bonnet (where the bottom of the bonnet sits).... did mine with a haynes, a friend and a lot of elbow grease / beer ;-)

as for those wheels - they don't look that good once theyre on - there's a red cinq near me that has them and they really don't suit but I guess its down to personal choice.
Concidering what theyre gonna cost you (even off ebay), to wrap them in good rubber you're gonna be talking 350 ish all told.
I looked into my next set of wheels and halfords can order in several different 14"s with yokos, fitted for you and they start at just shy of 400 and range to 550, depending on style and colour.
There are only 2 or 3 models available though so they might not suit your tastes but it mighht be worth you popping in to your local shop and asking before you go ebaying...

Tried a little photo-mock, but the pic of the wheels wasn't great, and the angle you took the pic of your car was a tad awkward to work with so you will have to excuse the rough quality - after all it was only a 2 min knockup.

You might experience rubbing if you lower it too far - https://www.fiatforum.com/cinq-sei-t...n-worries.html
