Yep. Sefety was a concern when I got mine because I'd just walked away from my previous car that was written off (by an elderly man who wasn't fit to drive). I wouldn't have gone with anything less then 3 stars, and ideally a 4, which is what the Punto 2 has.

When I look under the bonnet I'm amazed at how much air there is. My finacee has a Corsa and it's jammed full of engine bits. In a serious crash all that space in Punto's means the engine isn't going to end up in my legs hopefully. Not that I want to be in another accident.

Punto Mk2 ELX 8v in Teseo Blue with the electric Sunroof and CD changer, doing 50mpg whilst passing down country lanes

Just have to scrape the Burberry caps and blood/brains off the bumper afterwards! ;):p

Here was mine... head on with a Skip lorry driving up my side of the road, hit it at 45mph, impact threw my punto around 90 degrees to the left, front end squashed right up to the window, I had to kick the passenger door open to get out, with not a scratch on me!!! [8)]

Car was a right off of course LOL

Id put a pic on here of it, but I don't know how.
Scare the crap out of me everytime I see it :(

quite scary when you come to think they put a turbo lump in a car that in a crash it won't survive

Punto GT Turbo, forge dump valve, samco hose kit, pace intercooler, k&n induction kit, s/s exhaust, bleed valve, superchip, running 15lb boost!
