Wilk0's Black 1.2 :)

Well yeah,
I've decided to post my GP after giving it a wash this afternoon, It a completely basic 1.2 Active. I'm having it off my Mum since shes had it from brand new, so I've made her take it easy! :-) Had a few quotes of insurance and the lowest I've got is 3k, which is pretty mad! Anyway I have my test soon so hopefully I'll be in it ASAP!










https://www.fiatforum.com/gallery/sh...&ppuser=115596

Any advice would be welcomed, and I've got some HEKO Wind Deflectors here but not putting them on until its mine.

*Planned:
-17'' Team Dynamic 1.2 Pro Race in White OR Grande Punto Sporting alloys sprayed white. *advice?
- Abarth headlights.
- Lowered either by Eibach Springs OR Coilovers *advice?
- FK DeBadged grille,
- White wing mirrors and maybe white Door handles.
- Anything what you suggest will be considered.




*I'm not going for any Euro look or anything as i don't really get all that, I'm just going for a nice look what i like!
*The updates in mods are most likely to be very slow as I'm not on a high wage and being a Student too, And sorry about the ****ness of the pics as it was took on my Blackberry.


ADVICE PLEASE?!
CHEERS!

Re: Wilk0's Black 1.2 :)

Finally got a thread started
coilovers are good because they're adjustable, anything from 20mm down to like 100mm but they obviously cost more. I understand money is an issue so just get some lowering springs.
'de-punto' the rear, takes 5 minutes.
exhaust trim to smarten up the rear.

Re: Wilk0's Black 1.2 :)

tidy little motor! same as mine

if you get white alloys be sure to get something else white to give the car a bit of a theme. my advice would be white wing mirrors!

another simple mod is to get the newer red badges. they look a whole lot better than the blue

can always look at my MM thread for a few ideas

Cheers mate, and yeah when i go to college theres a Peagout with the number plate 'SM06' and whenever i see it it reminds me of your car.

And yeah I like the sound of White wing mirrors, but would i get them from? (that wouldn't need to be told to my insurance would it?) and as Luke said, I like the sound of white door handles, what would that look like?

*I've got photoshop downloaded so could anyone message me how to photoshop it to white wing mirrors and door handles

Re: Wilk0's Black 1.2 :)

white mirror caps... you can spray your current ones or get some directly from fiat. take the cheaper option and spray your own and insurance wouldnt have to be notified no

dont do the handles white would look a little odd imo.

Re: Wilk0's Black 1.2 :)

The front badge is bolted on so you have to tug the grill out and then unbolt it. And the rear is held on with adhesive and 2 locating pins, so just get a screw driver wrapped in cloth so you don't scratch the paint and work around the badge popping it off.
I'll do some editing to show you what the handles and wing mirrors would look like white bare with
