    I cant believe I am needing to decide between these cars. Let me explain - I am going to be living in the Isle Of Man for a year and needing a car for the island - Want to leave my Alfa at home as I will be flying back at weekends quite a lot. I am after a low tax car, looking for a tidy...

    Hi I'm after a little help if anyone could shed some light would be much appreciated, I absolutely love my grande punto and don't want a different car so here goes , I want more power from the 8v engine so I instead of a remap manifold and exhaust I thought I'd buy a 1.9 16v jtd engine. My...

    Quick question: BMC dont list the CDA intake for the 95hp Mito (non-turbo) but they do for the 1.4 16v Grande Punto. Are they the same? would it fit? If not I'll just get the panel Thanks!

    Hey all, I've just had the family Berlingo written off thanks to a rear end shunt at a roundabout. The GTV's not quite up for carrying all five of us! For the family car I was thinking of getting a Renault Grande Scenic (budget 2k+) - Can anyone point me in the direction of a good buyers...

    Hi guys just wondered. The mito is similar/same as a grande punto essentially. Do the silicone hoses for boost and turbo etc work on a mito and a grande punto? Same size etc?

    Hello to everyone I open this topic with some pictures of my car and it's modification. Some pictures are from my old 8v engine but exhaust, intake and turbine are still the same. ImageShack - jacktheripper2's Images I put the album since there are really many. There is also the last dyno...

    Not sure if this is the right place to post this. I bought a Grande Punto in November and have been having a few problems with it. Maybe some of you have had similar problems with your Alfa's. Problem 1) All the lights (side/head/rear/dashboard) flicker out and in. Does this while driving and...

    i have had a GT Blackline for a year now and have had a change of job that cuts down my mileage from 14k a year to 7K a year so having a diesel does not make sence. i nearly got a mito diesel but could only road test the petrol car and don't remember which size engine it was but the steering...

    Hi all, anyone has experience with the Abarth Grande Punto and how it compares to the Mito 155? I have to replace my 147 GTA with a new car this year, so the Cloverleaf or GTA I can forget about (for the moment at least) and it comes down to these two and possibly also the Abarth 500. What do...

    There was a thread a few weeks ago but I think people were comparing it to the 500:confused: Any more thoughts peeps!!

    My wife may be getting a brand new Grande Punto (she ideally wants the 500 but the waiting list may be too long)....anyhow does anybody know which is he best 'small' engine in the Punto? She does just city driving Ta, G

    Although not strictly competition, still not an Alfa. Has anyone seen a review of, or driven a Fiat Grande Punto 1.9 jtdm? All the reviews and tests I have seen are for the 1.2 petrol or 1.3 diesel models (the main sellers I suppose). I am toying with getting one of these either on a lease or a...

    Ever since my 147 got stolen before Christmas, I've been looking for a used 1.6 or 2.0 Lusso 147 in the £4k to £5k range. However, one thing that caught my eye recently was a leasing / contract hire deal where you can get a 1.2 Punto Grande for 3 years at £120 inc VAT per month. Over 3 years...

    I know Joost has posted his own review already (thanks for that), but my little sis is interested in a new car to replace her Ford Ka. She's seen the Grande Punto and think it looks nice, but do any of you know how well it drives - apart from Joost, of course? :) Any advice would be great. I'd...

    Last week me and my girl went to Germany on a short holiday. Since my car is only for company use, we set off in the Grande Punto she'd bought about four weeks ago. It's a 1,4 8V Edizione Prima in black with the black/orange interior. First hump to be taken: luggage. You might think we don't...
