    But as you go wider your steering will become heavy

    So for the next stage of my mod I'm planning on getting the alloys painted, needed some advice.

    I wanted to get the orange colorization as well but i think i messed up the image quite badly before that.. I need to start afresh..
    what do you guys think?

  6. The one with red wheels looks so sporty. Nice choice of alloys man! Seems every one is addicted to modification, lol

    Hi Black!

    Red alloys on black Punto would look great. They go down well with the red Abarth stickers. Red and black are contrasting colours.

    Black alloys on a black car, in my opinion, won't look good. Would be too much black.

    TheBlack, I second Prakhar 22ji. Black car having red alloys look very sporty.

    But even Black alloys are looking awesome on your car, with those Abarth graphics.

    even i liked the black and red colors..
    I liked black even more because the calipers have been painted red already (which you cannot see in the pics as its been bogged quite a bit).
    I think i will first get the red done and see how it turns out then may be black...

    But there is another reason why i prefer black, I have com-paint (black color)... So you know what is coming ;-)

  10. @ theblack can you please post a close up picture of the sticker you have just below the abarth logo. Where did you get that logo with italian flag. I have seen this atleast in one other car too.
