My Punto 1.4 16v Sporting Mk2b.

Just thought i'd share my car and ask you guys what can i do to it to improve its overall appearence? I had a mate tell me i should de-badge it....what do you think. Also im in love with my car, my girlfriend gets jealous ^^.

Previous Owner's Modifications:
* Car has been lowered
* New exhaust
* Rear Tinted Windows (I Think)

My Modifications:
*None! XD

Beautifull Punto.

Yeah...about the badge, it's basically a matter of taste.
And you have to do, what you like best ofcourse.

So i wouldn't change that much anymore, maybe removing the punto and sporting badges.

She already has the right looks.

Re: My Punto 1.4 16v Sporting Mk2b

Thanks lol. Yer im defo gonna remove the Fiat badges atleast, does the rear fiat badge leave holes?......dunno about the removing the Punto and Sporting ones may leave them on . Any alloys which you think would look good on my car, im really unsure what to look at atm.

Also im thinking about taking the black plastic off the sides of it, is it easy to do?

Thanks for letting me know about the cheap grill, ill have a look for the it now

^^ The owner before me installed the exhaust

Re: My Punto 1.4 16v Sporting Mk2b

Looks nice man

I would personally either remove the side protectors or colour code them with the body work

Re: My Punto 1.4 16v Sporting Mk2b

Very nice car! The 1.4 16v is the sweet-spot in the range (which is very handy since it pushes mk2b HGT prices right down ) Personally, I would leave the alloys, it is very easy to mess up the look of the car with aftermarket ones. The only reason I would go aftermarket is for extra caliper clearance on bigger brakes.

Or for light weight replacements such as OZ Super/Ultra leggera's like I have on mine which are less than 50% the weight of the OEM wheels .

Re: My Punto 1.4 16v Sporting Mk2b

Looks good... could probs get away with adding a couple of subtle decals if you wanted to.
