Had a look at your thread really loved the how the calipers matched really well with the wheels and car colour. May have to put that one on my list! I do also like the idea of trying something new, the decisions...

Re: A kid and his Punto

Welcome!
Nice to see another blue GP! Defo think it's the best colour.
For things to do because I was in the same boat as you..
Lower the car for a start! Makes a lot of difference for appearence,
Roof spoiler if you haven't already got one?
Rear 3 windows tinted ?
I have an induction kit in mine and it really does make a difference sound and speed.
Defo paint the callipers.. I have anthrecite grey alloys with black callipers and it does look smart!
Here's a recent picture of mine,
Need and ideas or help feel free to message me

Nice car man. Agree with the induction kit but seeing as I have a black box I don't think my insurance will be to happy. Will probably message you when I start as I have no idea where to start!

Re: A kid and his Punto

We'll see with induction kits they don't take long to take on and off so if you were to have an accident it won't take too long to take off haha! Best off keeping things right if you have a box tho mate!
If you need anything give me a message

What if you can't refit it say your injured or your cars impounded for a forensic vehicle inspection following a serious accident (they miss nothing even list car mats /Fury dice and seat covers...)

And if you manage to refit it how you plan on doing it if the engine bay is half mangled look a bit strange the air box been undamaged......

Beware of insurance fraud as it will haunt you for life if they find out making it hard to get any kind of insurance after be it motor/ home / holiday/ life insurance policy's....

Re: A kid and his Punto

Thats what im saying some people take things at their own risk, some people are different but if youre a new driver then its best to keep everything right.

What about a racing yellow sort of colour?! Would look insane!

Re: A kid and his Punto

Hi mate, I'm Dion and welcome to the forum. I'm still in the same boat as you to be honest, I am an 18 year old uni student-to-be in September and I have a part-time job that pays about 400-600 a month. I've had a holiday to pay for, a car to keep running, plus a few little mods.

I started with these:

Wheel refurb/respray to black
Some interior vinyl wrapping
Abarth centre caps
Red interior lights
Carbon abarth valve caps
Aftermarket stereo,
Wind deflectors.

My plans are:
Red or yellow brake callipers
Tinted rear windows
Re-wrap the b pillars
Front vinyl wrap
Black Debadged grill
Carbon black wrap the washer jet panel
Carbon wrap the roof
Lowering springs
Was thinking inducton but just didn't know enough lol

Here's my car as of late:
