Talking Enos' Orange GP Sporting

Now then everyone



Been on the forum a while now and apart from asking a few standard questions ive not really contributed much so i guess ill start my own build thread

The car is a 2006 Carribbean Orange 1.4 16v Sporting

List of mods ive bought for her- (Will update as i go along)


- EBC Grooved Front discs
- EBC Greenstuff pads all round
- HEKO Wind Deflectors
- Xenonmax Headlight bulbs
- MTEC Sidelight bulbs
- Xenon Fog Light bulbs
- Red Fiat Badges Front & Rear
- 12" Boston Sub w/ Alpine Amp
- Eibach Sportlines
- Beesting Aerial
- Forge Underbody Braces
- Vinyl'd Front Grill
- 3rd Brake Light 'Punto' Cover
- GSR Induction Kit
- Orange Leather Gear Gaiter
- 6000K HID Kit
- Alfa 147 Red Leather Seats
- Wheel Stud Conversion Kit & Nuts


So here's how i bought the car on the day i got her (Old owners plates)



Then i bought another set of alloys for the car after skidding on black ice and buckling one alloy on the kerb
They are the Evo Sporting alloys.



Next thing i did was get rid of the horrible yellow tint from the lights-



Team HEKO Wind Deflectors-



Then when i needed my brake pads changing i opted for the upgraded Greenstuff pads with the EBC front grooved discs-





I ran the car like this for a few months then i had a fantastic oppurtunity to buy these lovely RAYS alloys replicas and considering i was going to get the Evo alloys sprayed black, i spent the money on buying some already black alloys instead!



Then i ordered some orange rim tape along with my spigot rings, gave them a bit of a clean up and this is how they are right now-



These are going to go on when i finally pull my finger out and fit my Eibach Sportline springs-



Oh and also these came in the post today



Im sure most people know but they're Forge underbody braces.


So yeah, thats how the car stands atm- should be fitting my springs and the new alloys within the next week or 2 then ill have the car looking almost exactly how i want minus a Cupra Splitter & Black front headlights and also need to get round and vinyl my front bumper at some point!

All comments welcome,

- Enos

Re: Enos' Orange GP Sporting

Cheers for the comments lads!

The black & orange alloys are actually called Ace C047 alloys if anyone wants to try find a set, they come in 4x100 fitment but the centre bore is 73.1mm so you'll have to buy spigot rings to get em to fit on a Grande Punto's 56.6mm CB.

I bought them off a friend of a friend tbh, cost me 275.
The evo sporting alloys do have a few marks on them to be honest but with a touch up they could easily be perfect again, i was going to get them re-sprayed so i wasnt really bothered but then i bought the black alloys and never bothered getting them done, ill PM you a price if your interested though mate. They'll come with just the rims because the rubber on the car now has to go onto the black ones

No pics with those alloys on yet, only got them a week ago and car is at Fiat now just having a few bits n bobs sorted then im going to fit the springs myself because the local Fiat dealership charge 60/hour in labour rates and i wouldnt dare pay that!

Ill upload the pics when everything is sorted straight away, i cant wait!

Re: Enos' Orange GP Sporting

The original sporting alloys. The ones that buckled. Any chance the 3 remaining ones are for sale? Or have they already gone?

Can't wait for pics with the car lowered and in it's shiny new shoes could i recommend vinyling the front grills in black (the bit behind the number plate) looks nice will go well

Re: Enos' Orange GP Sporting

Looks really nice! Can't wait to see it with those alloys on. I find it weird how the GP is a car that can very easily suit multispoke alloys (like the original sporting ones), or alloys with fewer spokes, such as mine and yours

Good to see you got rid of the yellowy front bulbs, but get some silver indicator bulbs now too!

Very nice car mate, I take it you put HID's in your headlights for them to look that blueish? After seeing your wheels I may go get some alloy tape
