Post New Fiat Owner

Hey all. We are new to this forum. Me and the missus have just bought our first family car today. A Fiat Grande Punto Active 1.2 08 Plate, 2 previous owners (ladys) 53,000miles with 4 previous stamps in the service book. Looks and felt great on the test drive. Cant wait to pick it up tomorrow. Needs a good service as its been around 13,000miles since its last one. Got some terribly broke wheel trims that need sorting maybe some new ones or Alloys. Any advice on the car will be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi, and welcome,

have you managed to drive it now..??

IF you want wheels the Grande is a FIAT / GM partnership,
so traditional FIAT wheels don't fit

you'll want the 4 x 100 PCD - as used in the VERY similar Corsa, ( and every Punto since 2006 - Grande / Evo / Punto 2012+)

Thumbs up Re: New Fiat Owner

Thank you. Yeah managed to drive it. Took it for a 180 mile round trip after it had its full service and new battery also swapped one of the tires for the spare due to a nice cut in the tire. Drove brilliant on the trip.
OK thank you for the info on the alloys, seen some nice corsa alloys too but didn't think they would fit just change the Vauxhall badge if possible haha
