Thanks people


Nope sadly there not, got to be pre 1963 or something for black plates to be legal and then that set are a bit small anyway. 12x3 on the front and and 14 x 3 1/2 on the back lol

What a shame! They do look mint on it.

Either way the car is still awesome, one of my fave puntos for sure.

I like the exposed intercooler

Re: My Grande Punto Tjet

Looks good some nice subtle mods

Only thing is I think the small plates don't look quite right when there is already a big recess for them...

Plates arent for everyone, but imo when you actually see them in the flesh i think they look alot better

Re: My Grande Punto Tjet

its coming along nicely mate.. bout time i got some pictures up of mine!

Hope you dont mind me asking a few questions about the HIDs.. ive been looking at some on HID direct and im quite tempted! Are they legal? Do they make that much of a difference, saying that anything has got to be better than the poor STD bulbs and how easy or hard were they to fit?

still luv the abarth lights, just wish they werent so expensive
