re: iPunto90's Grande Punto 1.4 T-jet Sporting, Black!

Thank you very much and oh yes! the trouble is i dont know where to start listing everything to be honest, im happy with the modifications that i have at the moment, looks great, sounds good! but im a big fan of subtle changes but there is a few major changes looming because i'm waiting for a decent few grand to come along when me and the g.f look at moving in together and then im gonna spend 2 weeks doing everything at once.. but watch this space over the next year hopefully! what about you?

I'm confused, you say you have a 09 T-Jet, but all these pics are of a 58 reg T-Jet. Am I missing something?

Some people like to class a 5... plate as the newer year if they have one as the plate continues into the next year.

For example (08) plate came out on 1st March 2008. (58) came out 1st September 2008, meaning the next plate (09) wont be until 1st march 2009.
this means the (58) will run into 2009 for 2 months and because of this people say they have a 2009 car.

Basically the 0 then the year (e.g 08) are from first of March until 31st August and 5 then the year (e.g. 58) are from 1st September until 28th/29th February.

Same logic will apply to the new numberplate style.

Maybe it's a 58 plate registered in 2009 pre-march? Just a guess!

Yeah the registration on the logbook say 31st january 2009! and thanks for the comments guys i appreciate it, i'll update with pictures and stuff as it happens!

Lee, fuel wise compared to my 1.3 diesel punto and my gf's 1.4 8v in town and getting about its the same really except its just when your right foot gets heavy or some chav try's it on it can lower your MPG but its only on long journeys you notice the difference, but as i barely do any long journeys im not too bothered!

and that's the first thing anyone says when they see the car, its always the alloys first and how great they look! then when they get in the passenger seat the next thing they notice is the performance!!

Re: iPunto90's 2009 1.4 T-jet Sporting With ABARTH Parts!

Not much of a update but was driving out and about last night when i saw the tower fully lit up for the first time in months so stopped for a quick picture, i apologise for the quality of the picture as it was off my phone and apologise for the state of my car, gonna spend most of tomorrow cleaning both inside and out to showroom standard! Enjoy...

Stunning car mate, very sleek! Perhaps tinted rear windows to finish it off? Look forward to following this thread!

Re: iPunto90's 2009 1.4 T-jet Sporting With ABARTH Parts!

Thanks guys! I spent all afternoon today with my girlfriends help completely cleaning the tjet, both inside and out, under the bonnet and even the boot.. it looks like a brand new car again!




I also was playing about and took my BMC Panel Filter off and put my cone filter back on and oh my god.. not only have i got my dump valve noise back but my abarth backbox sounds deeper, meaner and has now started to pop every now and then! so happy have a look!

Also my new bits off ebay are here and i'm off out tonight to try and get some good videos of my exhuast!
