Re: My punto GT cabriolet

Its going into the same car it came out of so its pretty straight forward, if it was going into a different car then it would be a different story.

GT would be the easiest, as its a straight fit. The Coupe engine is quite difficult.

Re: My punto GT cabriolet

I really like it but i wouldnt want that much power in a convertible as it would have next to no protection in an accident... Drive carefully mate!!!!!
