Re: New addition!!

Hi all,

I've been out in the car for a 20mile drive, great little car, can I ask when would the radiator fan kick in? I got in some slow crawl traffic and I'm not sure if it kicked in, coolant is ok but I'm gonna drain some out for all season stuff as it's a bit old looking

Re: New addition!!

The rad fan is pretty quiet on the seicento. The fan housing is more substantial than the old cinqs. You will probably get used to noticing it.

It's a good idea to fit an after market temp gauge if you like keeping an eye on the water temp.

Re: New addition!!

I've now managed to pick up 4 Seicento sporting alloys with new tyres for £40! I blew a hole in the back box last week, seems to run better now looking at venom suspension kit, good price and 40mm drop. Need a new exhaust system too

Re: New addition!!

The silencer on my Sei collapsed and the car struggled to hit 70mph!

I have the 40mm supercheap LO springs and they seem good to me. Transforms the car and a Janspeed rear silencer is the best mod i have ever purchased!

Re: New addition!!

Do you have a link for the spring shop? Did you get a full kit or just springs? Found a performance system cat back sportex £160 that I think Iíll get.

Re: New addition!!

Yeah I just got springs off eBay. I expect the shocks will need replacing in the next few years.

Cat back would be good. There is also a Polish made Ulter back box available.

I think these would be 55mm drop on your car!
