Took the only diesel they had over at the fiat here out this morning, what a great little motor the 1.3 is. Moves along very well and gets up to some speed very easily :)

So i went back to the dealers and decided i'd order a Red sporting 1.9 mjtd with the black leather interior and i did :D just gotta sell the stilo now :rolleyes:

and i get the punto the end of march as its a factory order :eek:

Glad to hear you'll be leaving the Stilo clan:p (only joking mate) I went out in the 1.4 active sport today, its a nice car i must admit, id like to have a play in the 1.9 tho because to be quite honest i thought the 1.4 felt gutless!

1.4 felt gutless.

think thats bad try the 1.2 8v, is pants!!! I have a 1.28v in my mk1 but at least it is willing, in the mk3 its just like having a hamster (an old one) in a wheel under the bonnet.

I just rang the insurance company to see what it cost to swap my policy from stilo to punto. I was expecting to have to pay a bit more as the punto is 2 groups higher than my stilo. But NO it wont cost me anything :D no extra charge to swap it to that car :)

Well spoke to the dealer today and he tracked the order and its going on the production line this week, so should be here in 3 to 4 weeks :)

The sporting that the dealer is getting as a showroom car is also being built in the same batch as mine, so i just gotta wait to see mine now :eek:
