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

Eibach sportlines are in the plans dont worry! aha and 24 hours later and the car is shiny as shiny as its ever been, dispite spending the night driving around with my mates, usually after going out in it even when its dry its not as clean or shiny but this new stuff seems to be the dog's dangly bits.. it took 1 hour to completely clean the outside to that standard!

Having to order something else of the internet to get some different videos of my exhaust as my camera seems to be the same as recording it with a potato! should be sorted next week..

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

Yeah thanks, i always like my car very clean and tidy so when it's as clean as that then it makes driving it even more enjoyable!

as requested; here are some interior shots as i havent really shown how nice the series 2 sporting is on the inside compared to the series 1 and non sporting models!

Here is how clean and tidy it was on the day of cleaning..

and here below is a few more of it today, a few days afterwards - still looking pretty clean!



Enjoy!

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

bit of a update; nothing major but quite a funny story, i was pulled over by tarffic police the other night on my way home for a random stop check and whilst he was checking everything out we had a 5 minute chat about my car and he was saying how nice it looks, if it sounded nice and was asking me how fast it is and about the performance! it was great, nice to see law enforcemant big up the punto, my punto! so rather than driving off feeling harassed, i drove off feeling rather happy with myself and my car!

So there you go, not all police are tw@'s.. just a select few!

Cheers Tom, i'm really impressed with how its looking at the moment although it will look 10x better when im done with it! I like yours too, looks great.. Series 2 Brothers! aha, i wanted a white one too but they all had high mileage and was too expensive but im happy with black!

Yeah mines just a standard one, my mate had a esseesse one on his but it looks and sounds no different if im honest but i only paid 70 for it, brand new so bargain!! The noise is alot better than standard, definately but bear in mind if its a new one like i got it will take about a fortnight of daily driving to wear in, as it were because mine sounded quiet at first. But it sounds great, quite a deep bellow and sounds sporty for a standard exhaust system when you put your foot down, i cant wait to get a custom one when i get round to modifying it completely!

Yeah the seats (without sounding stupid) is one of the best thing about my car.. they look, for standard seats, the dog's dangly bits! i had 4 people incl. me before and got out and even with 3 people on it looks lowered so cant wait to actually do it! and yeah it was 50p from b&m's and it works, i even tried it out going round a corner fastish and my phone stayed put!

Can do yeah, but....what am I looking for? I know sod all about exhausts except they make a noise and are attached under the car haha don't think I could tell the difference lol, whilst we're on a bit of a hijack, does anyone know what silvertec bulbs I need for my indicators in the lights? Want to de-tango everything but can't find them anywhere and I guess they have to be for S2 lights? 08 onwards sort of thing

I got mine from halfords, simple to do have to go in through the wheel arch liners.

I say simple, a pain if you have massive hands and no space for them.....
