Grande Punto New Grande Punto.

Introduction

Bought my new car Wednesday, love it! Was going to go for C2 VTS, though my mind soon changed the second I sat in it.

Does anybody have any ideas as to what I can do with regards to tints etc?

I want to avoid the chavy look (like my old corsa) but do want to modfy it.

Black mirrors? How dark should I get tints? Any ideas would be great! :D

Nice car, what engine you running? Id go for a 25% tint all round, thats what im planning for mine anyway. Think your first mod should be lowering, looks bit of a 4x4 ;) will look spot on with a few mods :D

thanks mate :D and 1.4 8v.

Yeah I think extremely dark tints only really look good on white or black.

Well its either lowerr it, or get bigger alloys...what you reckon?

Yes they are, your choice though if you want them, just got to live with the consequences if you get in trouble.

Well yeah I suppose...with my experience of police around here I think ill avoid it :)

A lot of people dont like it when the rear drums are sprayed because drums arent as good as discs, but i dont mind it.

ah right haha :D

well yeah i would prefer discs, but cant just paint front calips and leave drum out :p

well...might look okay but I cant picture it tbh

EDIT: not really visible from the pics, but iv noticed that the spoiler,skirts and both bumpers are all a lighter shade of red than the body?

Is this because its plastic being painted and not the car body?

Can it be matched?

Thanks in advance

There will always be a slight bit of fading on the plastic parts, especially on red cars. My door handles are the worst. Nothing a very good polish cant fix :cool:

Oh, sounds drastic. Any other pics?

What did you use to paint the calipers by the way?
