My "RICE" Punto MK2B aka disco on wheels

I Would like to share my punto with you guys. This punto is my first and only car for now, and is my daily driver. I know most wont like the style, but everyone has its own taste.

Fiat Punto MK2B

Since the car is modified i will share some informations

Exterior:

Almost completly custom front bumper with homemade front splitter wraped in goldcarbon wrap, ebay cannards in the same wrap, special licance plate holders so it can be removed. On the bumper and the fenders there is a quick release, which is now only for visuals, since i almost lost my bumper on a highway, since than its bolted on as usual. This is one of my 2 bumpers and i use it for events and special occasions.

B-Line front bumper, which i am using as a daily bumper, nothing special about this one exept that it also has removable licance plate so i can change between the two. I modified the stock fender to bumper mounts and cut off some mudguar ,now i can change bumpers fast and with 1 tool.

B-Line rear bumper, it was a 3 door model, so it is a bit modified to fit my 5 door. Added homemade diffuser with some ebay shark fins and wraped in goldcarbon wrap. Also has rgb licance plate

CSR X-Line sideskirts, i added a simple lip/step wraped in the same as bumpers.

RDX spoiler.

Headlights painted black,added ccfl angel eyes, tinted blinker lense, with led bulbs for blinkers and parking lits , and 6000k lowbeams

Rear lights tintes and all bulbs changed to led

Tinted side blinkers

Rremoved antena on the roof

Front Hood complety custom, removed the grill, removed windshield sprinklers, hood vent and bad look

Rear hatch completly cleanlook

Removed door moldings

Music:
Also nothing special yet. Pioneer DEH-S101UB ,ESX SQ-6.2T tweeters, Auna CS-LED65 front and Auna CS-LED4 rear speakers on the shelf,they are nothing special,even bad if i may add, i only took them because they had blue leds,which i soon changed to rgb with switches. IceBlock 230 sub, bad for its size , but good for LEDs so its still in there for now.

Not to my taste but you can tell its been done very well. I actually quite like the rear of it minus the spoiler. Keep us updated though, always nice to see what people are doing with their Fiats

Re: My "RICE" Punto MK2B aka disco on wheels

I actually like it, I love the effort and thought that been put into it. Looks very cool.
I'd actually would've done something about those hideous door mirrors.. I am sick of mine and want to get rid of them to something more slick.

Door handles Idk about them too about them being black (or there at all haha!)

It's not my taste but I do see you put a lot time and a fair bit of money into it. Still using stock exhaust?

im looking into geting the "tuner" M3 look door mirrors this winter , there are many differant varients of them. i want to get the ones with electric control(as my car has electric control mirrors) and with built in side blinkers so i can remove them from the stock location, we need to have blinkers somewhere on the side of the car to pass MOT here...

For the the door handles, im removing the rear ones this winter, smooting it out, and for the fronts i dont know yet. leave them black for some color differance, paint them car color, or retrofit a barchetta ones.

Re: My "RICE" Punto MK2B aka Night Party Mobile

yeah I would recommend just straight piping it, why you didn't get the 1.9? How far do you plan to push the 1.3?

well im more for look modifications than caring much about engine, was briefly thinking of HGT swaping it,but its not worth it. if i wanted to go for power id start with hgt. well the car is my first car and at the start i didnt think of doing anything of this to it it was suppose to be a cheap daily haha ;D not sure how far ill push it, its a HIGH milage engine so its risky.. but i think that ill leave it at 100hp even after straight pipe.

Re: My "RICE" Punto MK2B aka Night Party Mobile

If you want a tunable engine go for 1.9 JTD, it can take +400hp on stock internals. I wouldn't care that much about mileage as I would about maintenance. These engines can take a lot abuse if properly warmed up and maintained

Re: My "RICE" Punto MK2B aka Night Party Mobile

You heard very wrong my friend, they have forged internals from factory

this is a Croatian Punto, it has +80 000km on +300hp setting and at least 20 000 on 350hp

or this one, look how high his EGT are and the engine is still working

There are countless examples of JTD engines making huge power while being reliable AF

With bolt on parts from Fiats/Alfas the 1.9 16v JTD can make 260hp with no smoke
