Well here she is... my baby... and boy am I happy :D

I first saw the car driving on the way to my Uni, whilest taking a de-tour, the instant i saw it it shood out. I've never had a thing for Punto's but this one is just different, obviusly being Bright Yellow and also Abarth Modified. The car has EVERYTHING and more I was looking for, its sporty, it has the electric windows and mirrors, air con, TCS and ABS, Power steering of course and its a 1.8 petrol.

Im the happiest guy in the world right now!

Full details and Pictures Below:

- Make : Fiat
- Model : HGT Abarth
- Engine size : 1.8 16v
- Year : 2000
- Colour : Bloom Yellow

Comes with ABS, TCS, Electric Windows and Mirrors, Air Con, Power Steering, Central Locking, and more along with The sports seats and remastered interior.

Overall I coulnt ask for any more :)
Shoud have the car by Thursday 1st Feb.

Thanks for looking, and comments welcome.
Darren.

Dont think the owner of the Golf R32 would have been happy...lol
They let me Test drive it on my own mind you :D... great way to know if its what you want...
 
personally would have gone for a p11gt (150bhp) or n15 gti (141 bhp) with v low mileage for less money. but thats my opinion

If im right the second one is an Almera? I did look at one, but I dident like them, not my sort of car...
 
Nice motor mate. Don't listen to those who say "but it's a Fiat" etc. Any plans to 'tweak' it? Or is it staying standard? Let us know how you get on with her. JA

I'll probaly leave it mainly standard, but I said that about the Micra.

Only things I think of atm are, Geting the handles etc colour coded, possibly put on some black wheels, and a flip up TV, like in the picture attached.

It's Broom Yellow by the way...lol.

They're not bad cars those Punto's, even the 1.2 16v jobbie I had a ride in went OK. Sounded good too-every Italian car is built to be driven by a Michael Schumacher wannabe.

Yeah man, alreaddy a member, TBH though I dont really have plans for it, only that I in the future want Black wheels and a TV...lol

No doubt i'll end up with suiside doors and a veilside bodykit...JOKE!

Why do u have to wait over a week to get it?
Because Mine is getting alot done, the Exhaust system, Sound System etc is being removed this weekend. And the Punto is getting a new Cam belt, MoT, Full service etc, but the main reason is that if I wait till the 1st of Feb, i'll get a months extra Tax. worth it for 6 days...lol
