Re: mk2b Sporting 16v

Not sure, perhaps it is just because the wheel is turned? Not something I have noticed.

How do I get the thumbnail preview on the thread info?

thanks

Re: mk2b Sporting 16v

It won't ever be lowered, just not to my taste really, nor will I stick a big exhaust on. I want nice, understated power.

Considering tinting the rear 3, but not sure whether to go for 20% or less, as a friend who has a black Ibiza just got his done 20% and it's barely noticeable as it's a black car. I feel 5% may be a bit much though. Really not sure! Plus it's fairly pricey.

Other than that, getting some abarth floor mats with yellow trim to match the seats, and that is about it until I want something new again! (soon)

thanks

Re: mk2b Sporting 16v

Looking good even better with that low milage imagine there aint much wear n tear.

First pic definatly looks like the front has been lowerd and the back not. however it could just be the way the pic was taken as they do look different in pics.

Re: mk2b Sporting 16v

Im very sure it hasn't been lowered, what I will do in the morning is grab a pic on the straight side on, wheels straight, just to check.

Thanks

Re: mk2b Sporting 16v

Cool Re: mk2b Sporting 16v

not 100% percent certain if its the same for a mk2b but a few litle things you can do to make the car look alot better is:
- de badge the punto sign of the back? using hairdryer and a credit card,then wd40 and a micro fibre cloth to get the gunk of,then t cut.
-de bump strip it,using exactly the same technique as above.
-and im not sure but if mk2b have that black bag kinda film on the tops of the doors that can simply be peeled of and wd40 and t cut to get the glue off.
-de tango front lights??
-change yellow bulbs to xenon ones,and change rear license plate bulb to a white led??
-paint callipers and drums black

this can make a stock car look really clean and fresh sorry for the big paragraph but i really think you would like the outcome haha

Re: mk2b Sporting 16v

Hey thanks for the tips, I've noticed a lot of this on many Puntos, some parts I like, some I don't.

I want to keep the bump strips, as, whilst im still driving it to college, the bump strips serve their purpose very well indeed.
Not sure about the bag on the door, will have a look.
De-Tango? Little confused with that one
Xenon bulbs, yup, or HID's, that may be coming soon
Paint drums/calipers - yes, planning on that happening, just not sure when or what colour. Black seems the safest, but the seats are yellow, and I think red looks the best.. so I need to have a think about that one. What paint should I use?

Not sure about the debadging though, removing the "Punto" wouldn't look right because the sporting badge would still be there on the right.

thanks for the tips, though.

-Fair does with the bump strips
-The bags defo have to go you will love the difference trust
-de tango basically means take your front headlights apart and take out the orange bit inside the lense,just makes them look much cleaner really
-HID=WIN! haha
-I personally think black on your car atleast for the drums and then maybe a colour on the callipers if you really want,i personally just think newer cars should be a bit more sleek thats why i suggested black for calliper and drum.
-when i said punto i didnt know the sporting one was on there haha,they can both be removed and they make a big deiffernce not only makeing the car look a little smoother and sleek but a little sportier aswell.
-also the white leds on the rear license plate may not sound worth it but for 1 pound of ebay it makes your car look so much cleaner from behind at night.
-and one last thing could be metal pressed license plates they make any car look better especially puntos hope this helped,i wouldnt have wasted my time typing this if it wasnt gunna look good haha

edit:any high temperature metal paint,or just type in on ebay brake calliper paint.

Re: mk2b Sporting 16v

mk2bs dont need detangoing they come detango'd as stock, just go on ebay and buy tinted side repeaters there only like a 5er and look alot better, and ye get rid of the punto on the back , buy a debadged grill (only 15 quid) looks great , paint your back break disks with black amarite and paint the frount ones red, also i agree with keeping the side rubbers, but get them colour coded with the car, rear tints always look good, i got the darkest you can and it looks good, get a suntrip on the frount with tint also

Re: mk2b Sporting 16v

Alright, thanks for typing all this out, I'll have a look into all of it!!! Like the idea of the metal plates, and I need to do a mass change of all the bulbs in the car with LEDs, the reading light, interior light, boot light and plate light. And the side repeaters in black, grand idea , will check that out right away.

thanks so much

Smile Re: mk2b Sporting 16v

Evening Faz, I wondered how long it would take you to appear on here

Liking the suggestions. We'll sort out those interior LEDs tomorrow.
Black side repeaters will look sweet! Let me know when you order some, you can get me a couple too :P

HIDs on a MK2b are unfortunately illegal; I don't know how you want to play it but a set of Osram Nightbreakers are good enough if you want to keep it legal.

I agree with you that you want to keep the sporting badge - you want people to know you have the 1.4 sporting!! Who wouldn't! I have seen a few that have put the 'punto' badge just above and to the left of the 'sporting' one, but I'm not convinced on that.

Maybe just some red scorpion (not Abarth, just red background with white scorpion) badges to replace the fiat one, and that will compliment the single red 'sporting' badge!

De-badged grill makes it look a bit too 'euro'.. I personally don't like it, but I know a lot of people do and I'm not going to knock it. The other option would be to replace it with a scorpion badge or something.

Change the colour of the LEDs in the dials would look nice! White maybe?


And for God's sake, get rid of that awful Chavtastic headunit!
