My Silver 1242 Cinq

I think itís finally time to post my Cinq up on here now that today I have finally got it the way I like it (aesthetically).

Itís a í97 Cinquecento Sporting donning the Grigio Steel Metallic Paint guise. Other recent little extras include the following spec.

- 1242cc (20k mile) Punto Engine Transplant
- Blue GSR Optimised Induction Kit
- Punto HGT Brake callipers & 259mm by 20mm vented discs
- Apex 30mm full suspension kit shocks and springs
- Tempra 14Ē Alloy wheels refurbed to anthracite (same style as original cinqs to accommodate bigger brakes)
- JVC head unit and upgraded stealthed speakers (soon to be replaced with door pod items.
- Re-sprayed rub strips and tail lights to black
- Lester/Abarth replica side skirts (professionally fitted)

Future Intended Upgrades include:

- Tricker 40mm Throttle body
- Punto 75 Camshaft
- Remap
- Janspeed Exhaust
- Turbo baby!

Re: My Silver 1242 Cinq
