When its clean the red is abit more apparent, but generally isnt noticeable by the average person & it doesnt turn baby**** brown in daylight like a couple of cars ive seen

Apart from the cleaning requirements its brilliant, and really suits the evo




There's plenty more on the Evo that'll be different to the Grande even if it was only slightly different, i just dont see the GP forum holding 2 separate community's, especially as one bashes on the other, plus theres enough "what model?" replys on GP threads without adding another 8? models of Evo to the collection.
well as with all of these type of things it will most likely be left to see how it comes out
i have no problem with having an evo section,its just if theres enough difference ot make it a worthwhile section IYKWIM
often people say we should get X forum/subforum and they are then very quiet
sat nav and imaging are 2 good examples

SPARE WHEEL

or lack off one,, i see some buy it at 35 instead of the foam inflator,,

My dealer said i can take what i want from my GP im trading inn,,

Could i swap the spare, never used it & im guessing its possably the same size?

Or whats other opinion on this,, i know the tyres ruined once you foam it were as the spare (could be space saver but never looked, lol) will get us to were we need to go until the tyres fixed,,

You know what i mean.

I paid 35 for the spare wheel personally, so i cant say if the old spare wheel would fit, id imagine so, pretty sure mines just a standard steel wheel just like any other...

evo has new interior, multiair etc...linea has a boot! Evo will sell in big numbers so having its own section would be advisable in the near future.

Re: Punto Evo Threads

true but alsatians have bad (undeserved) reputation while german shepherd has a 'calmer' ring to the name

So we need a evo and dog section

Re: Punto Evo Threads

A white evo came towards me and it really didnt look very nice. It looked like a GP, but uglier :S Its that front end, its very silly.

For me, it's all about the car coming the opposite way catching your eye. Even the base spec GP's catch your eye. This was a top spec evo and it looked...meh.

So are the 2 cars the same?

I always thought that they were, but the EVO being a facelift.

They look almost the same to me

I've found it pretty easy to get confused between an EVO and the GP, but on certain angles (front mainly) it looks different.

I must say the front end of mine looks great, but in photos it looks odd.... not sure why lol.

and yeah, ive paid 14.5k for my car i dont care what other people think, its got all the gadgets you'd expect from a car worth 20k, and the car feels top notch quality, very tight, no rattles, no visable cheap plastics etc, and beats the pants off the other cars ive seen in the segment & a few above it.

True, though all the "bad rep" dogs are just given bad labels because of the people that own them,

plenty of the "worst" dogs met so far are some of the nicest, my niece has a massive rottweiler while its made of muscle & weighs a ton & more than capable of knocking even the biggest of people there butt, its one of the friendliest dopey-est dogs ive met even during "rough play" he doesnt snap, even gets on with the kids in the family (7-10)

a friend of mine also has a fully grown rottweiler, stupid thing thinks its a cat... sit on there sofa & the thing would jump on your lap wanting to be stroked, major err someone help!? situation :P

niece in america has 3 pitbulls, i've not met them yet but from what ive heard from people who have gone to visit very all surprisingly nice dogs.

also another friend had a staffy, there labeled as violent but his was great, walked around making pig noises and sits in the wrong places so its regularly kicked by accident & its never snapped, barked alot in general though.

the only horrible dogs ive met would be jack russels, those little ****s just randomly kick off & go nuts, cant do any real damage but they do nip & regularly get in fights with other dogs. (in my experience.)

oh yeah, back onto cars..Evo forum! :P
