Re: So whats good about my Fiat?

me and my mates always have a bit of banter, i have a 2001 punto, he has a 2002 polo

i paid 1600, he paid 3,000

he's spent over 1,000 on repairs and now his CAT could be nackerd!


I used to have a corsa (chain driven) the chain went lose on me and i was quoted 400 from a small garage, 500 from vauxhalls and 3 garages wouldnt touch it!

Re: So whats good about my Fiat?

They dont have such a fantastic community like us at FF. We have a laugh and know our cars will break down, but we have fun doing it. We dont need to bad mouth others cars. We all know what F.I.A.T means. We all meet up from time to time and at most meets who gets the most attention the Fiat's or the Vauxhall's.
You own a piece of nostalgic history, he owns a piece of Chav $hit . Stick with us and well get your car sorted so he hangs his head in shame when you pull up.
Now how about an induction kit, In Car Entertainment, Styling we have it all. (Now hows that for a sales pitch lol it didnt start that way)

Re: So whats good about my Fiat?

Tell him he's a sheep (he copies everyone else), drives a chav vehicle, looks like a chav and that he obviously is lacking in a certain department in that he feels he has to make himself seem more superior than you.

Edit: Tell him girls like a guy who isnt trying to prove something. FTR I'd rather guy out with a guy that drives a funky car than a stupid high mass produced piece of turd.

Re: So whats good about my Fiat?

I'd remind him each day that I could think of no cars on the road today that put out 44bhp from a 1.2 engine.

Remind him of the 17's 0-60 time of his corsa. And remind him that the 1.0 THREE CYLINDER lawnmower engine in that model corsa is quicker than his 1.2

Then beat him at the lights (1.1 sei will easily do this), then laugh at the fact that he actually owns a corsa, along with just about every other kid who writes their car off in the 1st 2 weeks of driving.

Re: So whats good about my Fiat?

Because some puntos have something called a non-interferance engine, so when the belt snaps, your engine doesn't explode (not literally) like it would on other cars.
And there are alot of people who know nothing about cars, like me :P just gotta pick it up as you go along
Thanks Blasterchief thanked for this post

Re: So whats good about my Fiat?

[quote=Blasterchief;1994215]Im driving a fiat Seicento S 1.1 and my mate is constently bad mouthing my car and it is getting very irritating.Hes doin a mechanics course so he knows and meets people with a lot more knowledge of cars then me. Hes Driving a Corsa merit 1.2 built in 1995 or 1996. My fiat was built in 2001. Hes always going on about it and bad mouthing it in front of everyone so hes not much of m8 to be honest.


It would be better to ignore the words of him and say some kind words staying the best quality of engine the car still owns and even the car is stronger than his...Dont worry he will shut his mouth soon as there are new some technologies being inserted in to Fiat cars and the new cars will be soon in the market..

Till that time stay away from him!!
