Re: My 03 active sport punto

paint some trims maybe? de-badge the rear and remove the door bump strips. little things like that shouldnt add to your premiums, BUT check with ur insurer and tell them of all the work u do, no matter how small or superficial u think it is. they LOVE to find anything at all that would get them out of paying out for claims.
check out the members motors section for some more ideas.

all answered below.
but if you went to a cheap enough sprayer it would be about 100, depends on how much you do.
get a pic up of the car and we can give better ideas

The difference between the active sport and the sporting are the sideskirts When I had my active sport I got a pair for 40.00 and fitted them, minimal cost, insurance didn't increase "as they were Fiat parts"

Makes it look a million times better.

Other than that, lower it, tint it, drive it and enjoy it

Re: My 03 active sport punto

nice set of alloys, sideskirts, tints, as i said before all depends on budget, its very easy to get carried away.

no offence to you or your car and can someone answer me fiat have done it but the 1 thing i hate about your car which if i were you i would change is the silver pillar on the drivers door, looks wayyyyy better when black, especially with tints

yeah all sounds good and you can, although will have to budget
and well no offence taken but I prefer it silver, especially as im planning to paint all the plastic bumpers, side strips, handles and mirrors to get rid of the black, the only black that will remain will be the wheels and tints on windows your replies always good
