Stilo My 1.8 Dynamic silver arrow

Introduction

My 1.8 Dynamic streak of silver

Hi all. Some of you may remember me asking about owning and running a 1.8 16V Stilo. Well, a couple of weeks ago I pulled the trigger and got myself one. :)

It's a 2002, nice example, imported from Italy by a dealer, 112.000km done, nice service history and a totaly fresh major service (belts, filters, fluids..). I hear occasional squeaks from the suspension and the steering column has the wierdest subtle clonk when turning through straight ahead position, but other than that, no problems to report.

The fuel consumption is not realistic yet, since I keep grinning like a moron when it pulls through 4000 rpm. :D 134bhp is a step up from my 60bhp Punto. :p

I plan to give it a professional full body polish after the winter, since the paint is in such excellent condition, I may as well refurb the alloys (thinking about gunmetal grey) and have it generally cleaned on the inside aswell.

So without further delays, pictures.

The day I picked him up.

Yatour cd changer emulator in action.

So far I replaced some wear and tear items, such as wipers and pollen filters (guide came in handy, many thanks for that). Also fitted a Yatour cd changer emulator, works fine. 4 Michellin Alpin A4 tires, since the ones it came it were fit for the bin and I sourced new door speakers, since one was trashed and I got a pair from an Abarth for 20€. ;)

Enjoying every minute in it, it's very comfy, goes like stink and with these Michellins grips well. All in all the purchase price of 1700€ seems like a good deal. :slayer:

Last but not least, a few days ago a mate with a GP Sport suggested a quick photoshoot. And this came through. :)
