About time

Been a member of good old Fiat Forum for a few months now and its helped me out a lot and gave me a few ideas for my gp! So i thought it was about time I get a few pics up of my motor and some ideas I've got for him..




Only got the alloys the other week so I'm getting them lacquered before they're put on for good..

Already got:-
20% tint on rear 3 windows
17" fiat alloys on toyos
and thats it haha

Plans:-
Front licence plate vinyled anthracite
White light bulb headlights
Rear mudflaps and possibly front if I can be bothered cutting around the side skirts..
Possible red badge upgrade
HEKO wind deflectors
Front quarter windows blacked out
Lowered on Eibach Sportlines
and any other little ideas I get but thats all the main things for now until I get a permanent job anyway!

Well I wouldn't bother with HIDs if your not going to fit projectors as you'll get awful scatter and be causing a large danger to all other road users! Would be far better of fitted some uprated xneon bulbs instead such as Osram night breakers etc.

Uprated bulbs will be your best bet then, cheapest, best look without pissing people off and will light up the road a lot better. Win win all round

Sounds like a plan! Do you know if they get much attention from the police?

Nah uprated bulbs don't, and the advantage of them over HID's is they're 100% legal and correctly 'E' marked also

Sorry to bring this back up again MEP but i was just browsing there and came across a post saying that headlight bulbs in gp's are H4, but night breakers are H1, and that H1 is only used in the fogs? What does the H actually stand for? Haha

EDIT: just realised there are different model numbers! Oops!
