Re: Elepanza

I think the original Eleganza alloys suited it rather better, lol!

From a 4x4 I think, they are no more supportive then the original yucky yellow seats.

The alloys where not in the best shape and also narrower then the new wheels.

They should be... better foam shape on sides of base and back, unless the foam has split under the fabric. Got the same ones in our Sporting.

Front seats seem to be identical to the Eleganza ones.
The Eleganza had a split rear and rear head rests and the red one is just a basic bench like my Dynamic.

The Dynamic front seats seem much more basic, less supportive and less adjustment.

Re: Elepanza

Got the front height adjusted, I am pretty happy with the setup now.. Some smallish front spacers coming this week, to bring the front wheels more inline with the back.



Also cleaned up all the wheel arches and underside where the paint and chipped off and got it primed.

Re: Elepanza

Out of interest, was it only the Eleganza, 100HP and 4x4 that got alloys?

Re: Elepanza

The 4x4, Eleganza, 100hp, sporting diesel and the later 'mylife' got alloys.
They where a option too.. because you couldn't get a diesel Eleganza there is quite a few dynamic diesels with alloys, with all options ticked.

Re: Elepanza

I see! The Panda was a bit like the pre-tweak Grande Punto then: both the Dynamic and the Eleganza had the same alloys?

Re: Elepanza

The 100hp and 4x4 had unique alloys, all the others where the same I believe.
