Goodbye old Hell New

Finally decided to trade in my old Fiat Punto mk2 and bought myself a lovely new 1.4 Punto Evo (10 plate) in blue and I love it!!
Lovely car to drive, great on fuel! Love everything about this car!

Re: Goodbye old Hell New

Very nice car mate, I have the same colour Evo.
It's on a 61 plate. Awesome to drive.

How you finding it? What mileage has it done??

Had mine since September and I wouldn't change it for anything right now.

Re: Goodbye old Hell New

Yeah me to I love driving it, it's a beautiful car.

It's only got 21000 on the clock so it's still really pretty new.

So glad I chose to trade my old one in and get this.

Re: Goodbye old Hell New

Few more pictures of my baby,
Although when I was diving today the EOBD light came on (Amber Engine Light)!so I rang the garage straight away and got it booked in however when I got back in my car later it had went off so by sure what the issue was.. The car seemed to drive just as normal.

Re: Goodbye old Hell New

Just decided to upgrade my headlights!
Got a bargain off eBay so until I decide on changing my DRLs and Sidelights I've got some nice Bosch plus 90 headlights!

Massive improvement, much brighter but now I just need to invest in upgrading the rest of the lights.

Any opinions?

As you can see the
H4 Bosch Plus 90's are pretty bright but think I might still upgrade again to the
Osram nightbreaker plus!

It can be a lot of things, without connecting diag it's hard to say..

Same engine (and color ) as your, but in 2012 version, never had a warning light.

Keep us informed !

Re: Goodbye old Hell New

Never had any issues since, I think it might have just been an error but it sorted itself out! ...
Do you have any modifications you have done?
Id like to do some simple mods :P but nothing to pricey haha!

Oh and I love the colour and the engine has just enough power for me for now!

Re: Goodbye old Hell New

Ok good new if now it work like a charm

I have not do any mods for the moment.
I work on a "stop'n start memory module" because I dont like to disable it each time I turn the car on.

For the rest nothing planned, perhaps light bulbs in the future, but I like it like this

Re: Goodbye old Hell New

Did you have any success in this start/stop memory module? Is there some simple thing that maybe I also can do/make.
