well found, good site that - been tempted to buy a coup several times so had a look on there for buying guides and the like before.

Re: My Sporting 1.2 16v in black

I would sign up but they have a ban on using "god" in usernames. If it's not Goddak it's 01goddak and has been for 14 years now..

The coupe section on here seems a little dead.. Is that going to be the same elsewhere though??

Re: My Sporting 1.2 16v in black

they just aren't that common, puntosports seems to have died a slow death recently and - for me at least - what info is there is good but the site is so so so slow its painful and quite often fails to load. Would be a real shame for all that info to disappear!!

Merger in the making??

Or perhaps (I promise I won't it's illegal) I could make an unofficial cache of the site so that text information is retained??

Re: My Sporting 1.2 16v in black

thought about that myself, just for personal use of course. Pretty sure the owner, or at least one of the main admins is a member on here.

Re: My Sporting 1.2 16v in black

No harm for personal reference. I've never been a member though so seems cheeky to sign up just to rob their material.. I've been a loyal FFer for too long now

Maybe as somebody in the web industry I'll try to make contact with Puntosports owners to see what the deal is with the site and their future plans.

Might be a bargain sale to be had?

Re: My Sporting 1.2 16v in black

i used it for queries about GT when i had it, seemed to me that more than anything else it was a GT forum. You have to be a paid up member to get to all the really good stuff though like the guides etc - my subscription has run out, i don't have a punto currently and the site seems like its been abandoned so not paying again

Re: My Sporting 1.2 16v in black

Might be worthy investment then if it truly is a wealth of knowledge. I can see that it's starting to get harder to find info already.. Time to future proof?

Fiat forum wiki?

Re: My Sporting 1.2 16v in black

Ok, coupe updates;

When I got in the car after work tonight she was hesitant, juddered a lot and really didn't sound good, I detoured to a friends house I know has tools only to find his van was at an MOT centre.. The car had cut out in me a few times whilst idling I had to try and do something about that back box.

We headed to his van and have pulled out all the back box internals I could

So it turns out that even when I test drive her, whilst she wasn't as bad she definitely didn't have a turbo..

Now she does <--- trust me that's a big arse smile!

Feeling much happier and now I've felt a smidge of turbo, am so excited to get the lump in the Punto.

Re: My Sporting 1.2 16v in black

Just made a small purchase for the Punto.. Nothing special just a few grommets for where the rear wiper used to be.

http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=281026511967

I've ordered both a 32mm and 38mm grommet, think it'll be the 32mm but wasn't 100%

Plus as a little bonus, I'd forgotten ordering a new rear anti roll bar that was delivered to the garage today so I'll be fitting that in the morning.

Re: My Sporting 1.2 16v in black

I had hoped the local cat which hates me and always sits on my cars with muddy feet was in trouble.. Sadly the little git got me again last night so he's still alive
