cinq 1.4 turbo has donated!

Taken Down A Peg Or Two!!

Went into halfrauds today to get a few bits for the turbo,and was confronted by some really helpful assistant

When asked what car i needed the parts for,said assistant couldnt help but have a little chuckle over the cinq (he own,s a 106 quicksilver).
So i had great pleasure in telling him i would p**s all over his french crap.
When asked how i simply replied ive got a 1.4 lump in it (his face was a picture).

One of the other assistants has a 900cc cinq and was well impressed.
I told him all about the forum so hopfully we may have another member soon.

All going well il pop in there on the way back from rollers and show him somthing his 106 will never have.... 100+ BHP!!!

Yeah but you can't beat a royal trouncing on the straights, the sight of an onion stringed motor fading into the distance is one of the seven wonder of the world!

Re: Taken Down A Peg Or Two!!

Alot of the petrol stations charge about the same as normal unleaded and as i wont use the turbo much i thought id run it on super. Il ask when i get it set up if it makes any difference.

My boyfriends fiesta was pinking really badly before he changed to super,now its fine.
I would have thought it would give you a little more power as its a higher octane rating.But then iam a girl so could be wrong

Re: Taken Down A Peg Or Two!!

I have to avoid a bloke in my local Halfrauds because whenever he passes any customer, he asks what car you'e got. He will follow this up and spout a bit of random FIAT knowledge out. He will then follow this up by telling you about his mates Punto GT Turbo and do rather scarily loud, accurate and embarrasing GT Turbo BRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMM PPPPPPSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHTTTTTTTTTTTT TTTTBBBBBRRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMM MMMMM sounds and then he waffles on about his Calibra engine in his Astra. I think he loves his own voice. He has stopped me 3 times and done it. lol.
The time before last I avoided him really well but last time, nobody was on the checkout as usual in every Halfrauds and he got there. I knew I was in trouble when he scanned the FIAT broom yellow paint and he uttered "hmmmmmmm, good choice".

....oh btw, he DOES work there what a character!

Re: Taken Down A Peg Or Two!!

Id have said to him Gaz

''was that a sexual advance you made at me??'' Then asked for his manager!

That would have made him go quiet!

You could also ask how is brakes are on his astra, cos the last time i was in a vauxhall astra it didnt stop very well!!!

Also Vauxhall Calibra....The Girls choice of coupe hmmmmmm

Re: Taken Down A Peg Or Two!!

Halfords. Hmmm.

Looking for a Champion F101 oil filter, guy asks "What car's it for, we can find it"

Answer "Cinquecento 1242 turbo, you won't find it listed"

Guy says "oh, I'll have a look"

Explained that the cinq 1108 one won't fit, doesn't seem to register..

Re: Taken Down A Peg Or Two!!

Is this the one in fartown smurfhead? I'll have to check it out. Been meaning to buy a re-fill for my poppy coral air freshener.

By the way though of you who dont know they are definitley worth the extra money. my car smell nice and lemony everyday. Best air freshener on the market by far. Plus it doesn't look at stupid as them christmas tree's.

sorry to all though who have the christmas tree, no offence intended, my sei too was once a christmas tree car ....... until the liberation......when i bought the car and chucked it out the window

Sorry gone abit of topic, must be the stress of my uni exams.

Re: Taken Down A Peg Or Two!!

Bizarrely enough, I asked for an equivalent for the Champion F101 - answer - 'we don't have access to that information'

Brilliant, thanks, fella!
