Id say more than 60mm, as mines 60mm and isnt that low, its possibly on a set of Bebe springs.

Thats what im contemplating, think im gonna go for keeping hte badge and taking out the side bits, colour coding the badge then having black racing mesh behind it.

Chris, Just noticed that red uno in the attachment has the standard wheels that i've got on mine - just mine are painted

Re: painting OEM bumpers

Id do the grill so that you keep the one bar goin across and bin the fiat badge!

And id leave the bumpers black too if that were my car.

Luke, are u goin to keep your standard wheels or get a set of alloys ?

Well i most likely wont be able to get them in 14" so gonna have to be 15's probably. Just the problem is, even with the 195/45/15 - common ones, they have a fair bit of difference to performance (bout 3% according to the calc).

Have to shop about and see if they do them with 195/40/15, thats only 0.6% difference then, which should be ok

edit: Figures assume that standard rims are 175/60/13

Re: painting OEM bumpers

They dont make 195/40s

195/45s should be ok though, the speedo is very innaccurate anyway.

But i think 14s look best

Bugga

yea the 14s are, but theres very little available in that size unfortunately - so pretty much have to go for 15's.

My concern isnt really the inaccuracy on teh speedo, but more performance related. Bigger wheels meen less accelleration?? And i aint got that much to play with having the 999cc. Mind, theres less weight
