New Evo Sporting owner

Hi all, I have just bought a bargain Punto Evo Sporting and will pick up next week after it has a few scratches fixed.

Just thought that I would introduce myself.

Will add pictures once I collect it.

Re: New Evo Sporting owner

Well I picked up my Sporting yesterday in crossover Black, and it's a great car. Only thing is coming from a white car with black accents, this car seems a little boring in appearance. 'Well why did you buy the car in black'? It was 1400 cheaper than the next cheapest Sporting which was in white and had 6-8k miles more on the clock, so got black. I am now thinking to just add something to it maybe matt black wrap it, or white?!

OR

To be unique an Evo Sporting with this idea.

Re: New Evo Sporting owner

What about adding some red wing mirror caps? The black grande puntos with them look cracking.

It is indeed. Saw one in the showroom, looked good.

It is, I meant the paint job.

That is one of my first ideas, as has red calipers so be hints of red. Had considered red side stripes but I'm new to modding.

Re: New Evo Sporting owner

Nice, that Abarth Evo looks like its made of rubber, very cool. But I can't help but ask mate, to get a car wrapped is usually the steep side of 1000, around 1200 to get it with the door shuts done too. Why didn't you just buy a white one

It was a bargain, and have saved basically 2k off the equivilant white one, plus been playing around with some 3M no bubble car vinyl on a friends roof, and I am sure that if I take my time I could wrap my own car, with the Premium 3M vinyl, and would be around 300 in materials, then sort out exhaust and I am still over 1k better off.

Re: New Evo Sporting owner

Why not get a photoshop done? Or even better, I'll throw one up with that grey on black, white on black and the same as the 500C so people can see what it really looks like
