Thumbs up New Member and New Car

G'day all!
I'm new to this forum (have been browsing for a while) but registered today.
Im not a Fiat-fan altough my dad and my mother are heavy into these Italian machines. Im all into BMW's myself and have only had bmw's since I was 18.. We live in Norway and Punto's are pretty rare here.. hehe

Today my mother got her brand new silver mettalic Punto. I tested it think the car is a great car for her, light and easy to drive, and very economic.

The car got nice curves but not much else, and being a modifying-family we want to know what to do to it (styling wise). Becouse we never have had a Punto before we realy dont know whats availible, what fits etc.. So
we start with a pretty easy questions:

1) How big wheels can be fitted? Arch rolling? 17"? 18"?
2) Does anybody have picture of a Punto with lexus lights? (MK2,5 we have?)

Thanks for such a great forum, and looking forward to answers..

17 will go on no problem you will deffo need arch work for anything bigger.

205/40/17 is the tyre size to fit the 17s snug.

lexus on the 2.5 is okay. not the best look lucky i dont have a 3 door to ruin my car with them!body stylist does some awsome kits. no copy kits all original quality. and is cheap fitting.

also if you donate 15 pound to this forum, he give you a nice % discound that makes buying a quality kit cheaper.

Re: New Member and New Car

you may not find wheels with the fiat pcd of 98mm (distance between bolts) but you can use a pcd of 100mm with wobbly bolts also known as sliding head bolts, you may also need spigot rings to make the center hole in the wheel smaller,
