Well Happy Newbie here

Hi, thought i would say hello. Currently am looking to step into 147 ownership. Currently driving a fiat coupe turbo, my second one, and my daily commute is about to change from the train to the car, so as much as I love the Fiat, its not an ideal stop / start traffic car, so its time to move on. My current fiat has been modified to over 300 bhp and lb ft. I will be looking at the 2 litre selespeed hopefully, so i think the performance will be a big drop, but with 9 points I am sure this is for the better

Anyway, just saying hi and do you have a classified section on here for people to sell their cars?

Well basically nothing is standard on the car anymore, new turbo, exhaust, intercooler, air induction, custom chip, boost control, etc, etc. Its a cracking car and handles and goes and stops well. But all parties must come to an end

The fiat coupe is an excellent car with 300 being a norm for sensible modding now, and a couple are pushing the 500+ boundaries
