im now the proud owner of a punto hgt:D this is now my 3rd fiat.. the first being a 55s and the 2nd a MK2 sporting.. very pleased with it so far, fuel consumption is alitle bit more noticable then i first thought, is this common?

anyway here are some piccys.

i think the only thing im going to have done is lowering.. how much would you reccomend, without it looking stupid?

im going to make a donation asap, just paying off insurance premium and my excess from my flooded car. ;-)

HGTs are known fuel drinkers, a lot more so than the 1.8 stilo which is the same engine :confused:

anyway, nice car! i wanted a HGT but they wouldnt insure me :cry:

have fun with it!

Lowering: if you have a bit of money, buy some adjustable coilovers (y)
im still waiting on mine....

Yes they drink, but what do you expect with what basically is a 1.8 TS engine out of an Alfa romeo with a different head?. Is your variator ok?.

18 mate :)

but i had had a 2.0 omega (before my sporting), which wasnt slow... and definately wasnt as safe as a punto...

on my own insurance, with 1 years ncb, as well...

i did some research and it would cost £2k to insure me with 1years ncb on a HGT.... same engine in a stilo however would cost the same as my punto...:shakehead:
never mind, year 2 of ncb coming up soon (hopefully) (y)

norwich union said they wouldnt be able to insure me on a HGT till i was 25 :eek:

one of the things that made me buy the stilo, is that it was cheaper to insure then a new shape corsa life 1.4 :eek:

over 100 lb-ft more torque, nearly 30bhp more, and a few more toys ;), how does that work :confused:

Dirty inbred chav's drive them and stack them into trees trying to look 'hard' thats why. And the fact that the average scutter doesn't even know what a Stilo is. They will Probably think its a form of sex toy to use on there underage 15yr old scabby pregnant chavette slag.

God im a in a cynical mood tonight LOL. :devil::slayer:
