If you want to go down this route you will need to change alot more... abs sensors, hubs and maybe driveshafts, wiring loom brake pipes etc etc..

how about those alfa wheels that are in the classifieds section, theyre already black so you wouldnt have to spend money on spraying

rim tape for the red lip

Re: Out with the old, in with the new (my punto mk2a progress thread)

ok so with the money i have saved so far (was saving to get some cheep alloys or get windows tinted) but whilst just cleaning the car noticed the rubber on the wingmirrir has a rip in it and is peeling away (so all wires are visable).
so iv decided to get some dtm mirrors. but cant decide wat would look best. plane black, or carbon fibre. its not real carbon fibre but its only a quid more. but cant decide wat will suit my car best. any ideas?
