Evo Active Just arrived

Good evening all..

Picked it up today, was slightly raining with no proper sun so could not get the best picks of the Progressive Black but she looks fine,,

A couple of gripes but nothing major,,

The Start - Stop caught me out a few times,, its just so quiet u dont notice the "stop" as it happens so quick.. in fact you can still be rolling when it cuts out plus the "Shift Up /Down" feature aint very helpfull,,

The center console top tray rubber is driving me bammy,, wont sit in right,,

Im crap at cropping so appoligies

It had 0 miles on so i guess it was reset by the tech on the PDI like i know VWs can be done once upto 50 miles..



Got the S&S working

Re: Evo Active Just arrived

Looks so much nicer than a Grande Punto Active, wheel trims look much better on the EVO than the Grande's ones. Nice car

Really want mine now lol

Re: Evo Active Just arrived

Also made a couple of small cosmetic mods

I put in my old mats but they look shabby so will be ordering the new proper carpet mats

Ditched the uncool franchise tax disc holder for summit nicer,, not sure how long it will stay on as it did not like the curve in the glass too much

I do find these trims look the part for what they are,, you can normally tell them apart miles away but these look good.

Re: Evo Active Just arrived

A clean up & the old mats went in now,, but could do with fancy new ones i recon,, i thought the dealer would have given my paper mats to get home with,, you know the ones the mechanics use before driving a cust car,, or at least i hope they still use them,, my garage used too,,

Re: Evo Active Just arrived

I also like the fact that on models without fog lights at the front they've designed the plastic to make it look they are't meant to be there, instead of just some circular covers that would look rubbish

Re: Evo Active Just arrived

I got this in a week but only cause i wanted this colour,, they had the ordinary black, green, blue in stock so could of been shorter,,

I guess most on here waiting put in a specific order with options?

I heard a customer today ask when they were gona start pre-registering them,, probally wanted more cash off,,

I got 2000 of the list on this but not sure of Fiat were running an offer,, i know they had a March offer on finance,, but then next month may offer summit better,, chance i take i suppose,, was not planning to change my GP untill August / Sep,, but this is better now.
