The daily

So, not content with having bought a mk1 Punto a couple of months back I just picked up this today...

Seems a bargain. 67k on the clock, plenty of extras which Ive no doubt Ive forgotten half of already. But from memory...

Xenons
17" alloys
Induction
Magneti Marelli bombadrone stainless exhaust

Ive just driven it home from Dumfries and it hasnt missed a beat. Its quick, its fun and it does not look or feel like a 10 year old car! It needs very little...a cap for one of the alloys (a tab broke) Timing belt, rear bearings and brakes done all round. Full service history and just mot'd last week

Re: The daily

Looking nice. Wish we had bought an Abarth now. Was never the money to buy one but wanted a cheap running car. So went the twinair. Shame really. Never mind. Still fun cars and my wife loves it.

Any mods on the cards????

Re: The daily

Having had it for almost a week, I'd agree

Just been nipping around in it, not even in sport mode that much as yet. Should have a new hub cap and pressed plates when I get to work later...down side being I thought I'd lost the retention certificate for my private reg, so I can't lob that until until the new paperwork arrives

Got some shifts in Dundee this weekend so catching up with Simon and both Abarths are getting a bath! Expect pics

Poor Dundee, does it not have enough to cope with without inflicting you and @simon_16vpunto on it

Looking good.. when white is clean it looks wicked. I love using iron fallout. Best on the market is bilt hamber korrosal and there auto wheel cleaner. Nothing touches it 👍

Also get those suspension top mounts changed. Only cheap and buy the covers also so they donít rust like that in the future . 😬

I use iron basically every wash and every time stuff comes off. I go through it so quick. Haha.

I can imagine. What a difference today, driving through showers. Though raging to come home and discover this...

Re: The daily

O no. I do find the metal on these is so thin. A dent master will get that out easy enough. Just the hassle.
