TJHPunto's Sprint Blue HGT

Hi all, after around 8 years i am back in a Punto!

Met a few members at an auto italia brooklands 2009 (i think)

Not sure anyone remembers me but i had a lightly modified red sporting, think my signature still has the link. After owning a couple of Alfa Romeos (a 156 2.0TS and recently a GT JTD) i had the opportunity to buy another Punto which obviously i took.

So far with the HGT i have:

-Changed the head unit and all of the speakers (apart from the factory subwoofer)

-Custom black Fiat badges

-Leather seats swapped over from my GT









I NEED a GSR induction on this car.

Let me know what you think, any suggestions/questions feel free

It's a nice car. The only thing i'm not sure about are the headlights, mk2 looked a lot better. I will cut them open and spray the lens surrounds black at some point.

Mine was a base model 5 door, but it was my pride and joy for nearly 4 years.

Re: TJHPunto's Sprint Blue HGT

I really don't miss the horrific CD changer from mine.

Looks in good shape, there were never many Mk2b HGTs about so they must be getting very rare now.

Mk2A Look Better, BUT Mk2B work better, being larger they are brighter on dip beam. I had 2 Mk2A's (with the better looking lights) but also found dip beam was rubbish on them. Main beam is about the same for both.
All depends whether you want looks or functionality really
