You bought a what?

just bought a Stilo after five years of saving for one!
it's my first car!

it is a 1.6 16V Active 3Dr 2002(52)
it's silver/bluey green, any advice on a respray?






hello other forumers! i'm pleased to be a part of a forum with such a good range of smileys!


unfortunately, the car only has a tape player, is this easy to change to a cd player?

Welcome. The respray comment has me confused as well. What's wrong with it? That's one of the nicest Stilo colours.

Re: You bought a what?

Welcome, dont bother with the respray. Crystal Green, best colour there is (ignore rrope and bozzys attempts to convert you )

It's easy enough to change the stero, get the fasia and stick a head unit in - hey if i can do it anyone can!!

Re: You bought a what?

Best thing for the stereo would be to fit the multi changer in the upper glove box. Very simple to do, and simply plugs into the back of the tape player. Best of both worlds. look on Ebay, they regularly appear for around £100.

Re: You bought a what?

Wow! Thanks for all the comments!

will get me a kerrang radio sticker (somehow) that sounds rad!

i like the crystal green colour, but there are a few scrapes on it, and i would love a black car, or even yellow, or even white, which looks awesome! (it's the ipod thing)

i showed these pics to all my boy racer mates and they were like, what is it? haha! debadging it would be so much fun!

thanks for the info about the radio, will keep an eye out on ebay

Re: You bought a what?

Crystal green was always my second choice for the 3dr, and first for the 5dr, so I forced my mum to get it in the 5dr before I got mine . She doesn't regret it . . . (well I tell her not to )
