Re: Head Vs Heart (Punto Vs !47)
Have you thought about the Fiat Bravo 1.4 T-Jet Sport. It's bloody marvellous.
In a moment of weakness while Mrs. Ken's 147 was recovering from soaked carpets (again) we had a test drive in a Grande Punto 120 T-Jet. Athough it was good, it felt constipated compared with the Bravo.
I think the gearing is too high - because of the 5 speed gearbox, probably - and you really have to force the thing to go.
The Bravo with it's lower gearing and 6 speed box is like an excitable puppy by comparison.
