Went to Derby today....

And I have to say the drive back was much more fun than the drive there

Probably because of the car I drove back!

Introducing my new Punto JTD ELX!

Was a straight swap for my '03 Punto Active with 28,000 miles on the clock. And this one? It's a 51 plate with 36,000 miles on the clock. Bargain I say, barely even run in!

Oh, and a BIG thumbs up to Ian at Motorsave of Derby, what a legend! They weren't open today but he came down and opened up so I could come and view my car

Had a big smile on my face for all of the 3hr drive on the way back. Well, especially after I found a bit of private road to test it on! And overall on the journey home an average mpg of 56.1 while crusing at 77mph most of the way

Re: Went to Derby today....

not a bad deal, although it is 2years older

3door is much beta, as if i rememba before you had a 5door!

Keep it standard - street sleeper (well ish!) and get it remaped and a few other tuning goodies

what sort of spec is it.... 1.9 8v? how much hp?

Yeah it's 1 1/2 years older, but tbh I'm not too bothered about that, and this one actually feels much better built than the Active I had a 3 door before, it looks almost identical
Not being kept standard at all, got some plans for this one And yes, a remap is included in those plans
It's a 1.9 8v JTD, 80bhp, 147lb/ft Torque

Re: Went to Derby today....

Nice one, good move. I wouldnt be arsed about the age difference either. How much better is to have some 'go' under you're right foot? Now:-

Decat/sports cat + exhaust system
BMC CDA
Celtic/Angel Tuning remap
etc...

My mistake, Troopers is an HGT JTD that's why, sorry.
