but then on second thoughts, the engine on that car was utterly shagged... (still only on 80k when it was scrapped though IIRC)

a sporting punto would beat one though definitely.

the 1.4 12v bravo is nearly 2 seconds quicker to 60 than the 1.2 8v punto.

Re: My sons Bravo 1.4 in wolf's clothing

read the above. i was thinking of experience, not of paper figures.

but a healthy 1.4 12v should be quite good....

Re: My sons Bravo 1.4 in wolf's clothing

Just noticed your passenger wiper arm and rear wiper arm are too low. If you pull the nut cap off the top there is one 13mm nut to undo then you can move the arm up a bit. Rear arm is 10mm.

Though I had to release my arms with a ball joint puller cause some moron had tightened them up stupidly tight. I put copper grease on the splines so the arnt going to be stuck again.

Bosch Aero twin wipers are well worth the money
