Work in progress

This is my punto active.
ive only done afew little things to so far.

smoked front lights
smoked rear lights
removed door strips
badgeless grille

next in line
fit a small boot spoiler
bigger alloys (maybe 17s)
subtle front splitter (black)
subtle side skirts (black)
subtle rear splitter (black)

im hoping to do a few small things to the engine but im not looking to get any real performance.
air filter
exhaust system
maybe look at doing something with the throttle body.

any comments or ideas would be greatly received

Re: Work in progress

If you've got a 1.2 8v, you do not want 17" alloys - I ran 16" last year, and have gone down to 15" this year.. Definitely more fun to drive now, than it was last year!
Doing anything else than polishing the TB is a waste of time, as it's plenty big as it is. Head work will be worth more, if you've got time to fiddle with port matching and the likes.

Re: Work in progress

17" tires on 1.2 8v is to much, car doesnt go anywhere with original 14" let alone that much more weight, it would also eat your gearbox+driveshafts+brakes+benzin+rub on arches?

Re: Work in progress

Unless I droponn a cheap exhaust system, 4 branch straight through, I wont bother with modding the engine. I've a got a set of stilo 17 laying around but thinking the torque it would need to getting rolling its not worth it. I might have a look around for a bitter engine. The whole front set up would be nice as I want wented brakes

Both lights are now done. Last bit of door strip goo is off, and painted bottom centre lip of bumper. Not bad
