Well done him for passing. Now he's just gotta keep driving safe - and watch out for others doing silly things.
and not get drawn into daft things like being provoked into overtaking the car doing 20 in the 60 section and the likes

And never, ever drive under the influence of drugs, be they recreational, prescription or even good old alcohol. Even just feeling under the weather or tired can have the same effect.

Sounds though like he's worked hard to get passed, so he hopefully will apreciate his licence more than the person who just passes cause they had to.

Re: My sons Bravo 1.4 in wolf's clothing

Looks awesome I love the original bravo abarth'd up . I nearly had one as my first car until I found out it was a 1.8 and at 17 is completely uninsurable lol.

Re: My sons Bravo 1.4 in wolf's clothing

I nearly had a 1.8 Brava as my first car but the garage managed to run it empty of fuel then they couldn't get it re-started. Of course I was 20 by then, so insurance wasn't going to be quite so evil. Ended up with a 1.4 Ibiza which was good fun while it lasted.

i have history and downloadable content switched off, so it has to re-load the pics each time i visit the page. And given that we live in a rural area the download speed is only about 300kbps on a good day

but whatever, im not really that arsed, just wanted to point it out

I agree with Adrian, the GB sticker has to go, apart from that nice 1st car!!

Re: My sons Bravo 1.4 in wolf's clothing

that car looks stunning, the best colour for a bravo by far. shame about the interior i don't care for it much. but interiors of that age are pretty much all the same unfortunately.

Re: My sons Bravo 1.4 in wolf's clothing

Love the Abarth kit, it sets it off great, whilst not being OTT.
The colour is immense.

I am now thinking of getting rid of my 1.2 sporting punto for a 1.4 bravo in yellow and get it to look like this!!!

Re: My sons Bravo 1.4 in wolf's clothing

why? the 1.4 12v is slow, slower than a 1.2 8v, never mind a sporting!

but i would agree, the looks are a pretty convincing argument

Re: My sons Bravo 1.4 in wolf's clothing

Very nice first car, looks awesome with abarth body kit on it.

I'm with the majority, ditch the GB sticker, i'm sure he knows where he lives lol.

Some alloy pedal covers would compliment it nicely and finish it off.
