RuSZ's '09 StarJet Grande Punto

Well guess who's back in a Fiat after a year absence.

Here she is, my new Grande Punto with 13800 miles and one genuine lady owner. Its a 1.4l 16v StarJet Grande in Ska Red.

She's a 2009, Grande Punto GP Spec; 95bhp 92lbs/ft 1.4l Engine, Gen 2 Headlights and Sporting Fog lights, Carbon Effect dash, Blue&Me and 15" Alloys.

Recently been named Francesca the Fiat

Haven't really got many plans for her. Maybe lower. But have already got wind deflecters and the much needed iPod Blue&Me Adapter

Nice car Starjet is the name Fiat gave to the new 1.4 16v engine they built for the Grande Punto because the old 1.4 16v did really bad on emmisions tests :/

Nice colour, don't see many around either. Agree with MISC, would look good with gold alloys.

Yeah, the MJet is the Diesel (or JTDM), the T-Jet is a StarJet with a Turbo

Its nippy enough without it. Its a good engine

Dont think i'll be going with gold alloys, but would look nice

Thinking one day Sporting Alloys the multispokes. or some abarth alloys. But thats a long way off.

The engines not that small, much bigger than the 1.2 8v and the 1.4 8v but all engines look small after my 1.8 16v Vauxhall

Nah, its why i chose it. aswell as for the engine. was looking at a New Orleans Blue 1.4 8v. but decided on this to be different

Now that would look cool, if you got the right wheels, the wrong wheels and it'd look stupid. Maybe some Enkei's ...
