ID:	183700 Just keep it nice and simple lowering springs,wind deflectors,tints etc. Do what you think looks good/what you think looks good after all itís just a blank canvas awaiting your personal touch/style.

Re: My first car!!

Be aware if you go down the mod' route, you may surprised what can bump up the insurance costs. Your car your choice. I'm not being negative here, but if you are unlucky enough to be involved in an accident, you may find that you are not fully covered. At the very least check with your insurance company first, saving you time & money in the long run..

Re: My first car!!

Hi Jimboy,

is it that bad cross the channel ?
Are You saying that the white roof would make your black car less covered ? I can understand the insurance company would react if you modify something structural like suspension, engine (mapping of course !), tyres etc. But is it true also for cosmetics ? Back to the white roof, I could also understand they wouldn't cover a re-spraying of it (unless they'd increased the fee)
Did I heared sharks ?

BRs, Bernie

Re: My first car!!

Hello there Bernie, my comments were directed to the OP not the second set of pictures. Believe it or not the likes of go faster added on stripes/extra badges/stickers in some cases can be viewed as a modification to the car. Modification falls into two categories, engine performance enhancement or body appearance.

As I said earlier, if you are unsure get in touch with your insurance company to save time & money.

Welcome

Your car looks great. But then I would say that as I really like the Punto styling. I'm like Bernie, less is more, but tastes change over the years and when I got my first car I was forever covering it in stuff that no doubt older drivers would've thought over the top So go with what you like, it's your chance to express yourself after all!

My one suggestion is to get to know it a little better. Check out the wonderful guides here:

https://www.fiatforum.com/grande-pun...ly-checks.html

https://www.fiatforum.com/grande-pun...ing-guide.html

There's also some there for sprucing up the badge which can fade over time. That could be a good first project?

Even if you don't do it yourself, knowing a little about the car makes owning it a better experience.

Good luck!
