Re: would you compromise on car colour ?

Depends on the model of the car tbh. Just bought a GP, I refused to look at silver or lighter coloured ones. The car suits darker colours imo

But my Mk2 Punto was a terrible sort of metallic mint green colour but it grew on me and I grew to love the colour . Although i never saw one the same colour as mine!

If it's the colour I'm thinking of, I have seen a few mk2s that colour, in fact, I nearly bought 1!

Can't remember the colour code off the top of my head. I never saw another one like it. It was a pain in the arse trying to point it out to people . "see that green one over there?" "do you mean the silver one?"

Got a black GP now so all is good

Was it a very pale metallic green, on a relatively early mk2?

Yeah spot on with the colour, though it was an 05 plate so that would be pretty late?

I think I know what you mean now. Was it almost silver?

Yep, that's the colour I was thinking of, lol! I do still have a major fondness for the old mk2s.

I did love the Mk2 only go rid of mine because I was in an accident with a rather large Audi. Almost impulse bought a yellow Mk2b the other day. Had to stop myself :P.

I only traded mine (the grey 1) in due to the very expensive PAS fault it developed last year. When my dad said it wasn't worth fixing, I immediately started looking at Grande Puntos on autotrader, and found my Eleganza straight away, lol!

For daring to damage a Fiat, that audi should've been crushed. With the owner inside, lol!

I like the Mk2 in grey. Took me a while to find my GP ended up with my 1.4 active sport after about a month of looking. Most of them I went to see had dodgy front wings and weird panel gaps.

Tell me about it! I think his massive Q5 was worse off than my little punto though :P

I was rather attached to my mk2b, and I still miss it, pretty much a year later, lol! The dealer I got mine from also had a 56-plate 1.2 Dynamic 3 dr. When I was looking at them on the website, I was genuinely torn between the 2, lol!

With regards to the q5, I really don't understand why people are so crazy about suvs and crossovers. I actually like owning a Supermini, lol!!

Same! The dealer I went to had a Mk2b in for less than half what I paid for my grande. I was tempted.

No neither do I, they are just massive. I like my nippy little cars. Although realised the other day that my GP is basically the same length as my dads Focus. Super - not so - mini?

The 1.2 Dynamic was still a Grande Punto, but a fairly early 1. Both that had and my 2008 1.4 Eleganza had done 48k, but the Dynamic had the smaller engine, was 600 cheaper, and possibly the slightly better colour, but my Eleganza was newer, had the extra pair of doors, and more kit. It purely came down to condition, lol!

I hate suvs and crossovers, lol! They're completely pointless! Is your dad's focus a mk1?
