the insurance on that sporting will be alot more than what ur paying now (if uve just passed ur test and got no NCB)
the active is IG3 and the sporting is IG6........

Hei.

The car looks great. A nice set of wheels, and a little lowering would do wonders. Personally I'd never trade a 5-door for a 3-door. The body is stiffer due rear door mounting, and so damn much more practical. I think they should make sport variants of cars with 5 doors as well as 3 doors. Think of the Lancia Delta HF Integrale EVO, 5 doors and 200+ BHP.

Morten.


gas lowered on abarth wheels. upgraded interior and visuals. audio through phoenix gold and kenwood.

projects: air in and out.

Alright, you are propably right as I've only read what I wrote. Someone once claimed to me that inserting an Uno Turbo engine in a 5-door Uno was smarter due to stiffer 5-door body vs 3-door.

A three door is stiffer in the same way a hardtop is stiffer than a soft top, more structure, less holes. There may of course be exceptions to this.

As for this car, its tidy as it is, I'd personally not spend too much on it, save your money till when a sporting is more within your reach then trade up, maybe just go with a set of alloys now, they set any car off, and keep playing with your ice, the beauty of these mods is you can transfer them across when you do move to a sporting.

Anyway, good effort for your first car, my first car was a brown Chevette[8D]

Stilo TURBO!!!!(diesel)

Yer i dont plan on spending much on this simply because a kitted car devalues at part-ex, i'm in the process of obtaining some TSW Razor's (http://www.motor-world.co.uk/images/hires/5901.jpg) i think jus a backbox and a drop will be enuff for this motor.
Then when ive reached the midway stage in my finance i will surrender the policy and go staight to fiat and get a nice shiny new black sporting :D
