Punto (Mk2/2b) My Punto HGT

Introduction

Had my car 3 weeks now and have asked a few questions in punto section so thought id better post some pics up.

nothing special at the mo just another standard HGT..

Was a bit worried when i bought it as i thought it would be exactly the same as my bravo hlx as its preety much the same engine.. How wrong was I :D much more fun to drive and feels alot quicker too. with it being lighter and the extra 15 horses it does seem to make a big difference.

Washed it yesterday morning and then spent all afternoon going over it with something called .. "Meguirs Quik Clay".. my g/f uses it on her megane coupe.. It takes off all the gritty / tary dirt that washing just doesnt remove.. takes a long time but it really works.. the paintwork feels really smooth now.

Going to have to keep it looking like it is for a year as im with direct line and cant have any mods :cry:.. will give me time to sort out the normal problems and spend some money on gettin a new stereo sorted.

anyway.. thoughts, opinions, suggestions welcome!

Cheers, Adam

looks nice, keep it standard mate (y)

If i were to do a few things id keep it stuble, like colour coded the door handles and rubstrips i cant see this would affect the insurance!

...then when you can modifiy it, i'd say lower it, strut brace, GSR induction kit, remap & supersprint exhaust system (y) well that would be my choice anyways! :)

You can get the Quik Clay from speeding.co.uk.. Just do a search on the homepage and its about half way down the results page. PM me if you cant find it..

Not thought about going down the color coding route :/ Need to get some paint work done in the future so maybe that would be an ideal time..

Nice punto, I'd leave it standard too. Remember with the clay you only need to use a small amount (about a quarter of the bar) and work it into a disc in the palm of your hand, then use the detailer to lube.
