What have you done to your Giulietta today?

There seems to be a thread like this for every car here except the Giulietta (unless the autoguide app search is that useless!). As the title suggests...what have you done? Perhaps something that's not worth a whole new thread, a quick question or comment!

I got my Giulietta delivered this morning! Silver veloce, 140 2.0jtdm, already updated B&M to v8.0, debating a spider tuning box. Its a company car ( inherited it with 37k on it), so limited to my options.

Ok so i did something different to my G 1.4MA. I did a service now, and changed the filter (cone filter), but instead of putting at the end of the filter tubing and removing the stock box... I instead put it inside the stock box. The stock box has a lip on the inside which the stock filter grabs onto, now I've put a small adapter pipe in there and put the cone filter inside it. Then i removed the bottom plate (the 3 bolt 1 usually used to close the box) and also removed the snorkel that sucks are from the inside of the engine bay. Instead i blocked off the snorkel opening with a rubber cap from the inside. So now it only sucks are straight from the bottom of the dust cover at the base of the engine bay.

Right now she makes a lot more V6 rumble right through the Rev range (well till about 4k when the turbo whistle is at it's peak) and sounds really really meaty for a 1.4.

Anyone else did such a mod, and whats the results? I am a touch worried about hydro-lock as it is sucking from an open mouth below, but the filter is about an inch inside the box, unless i wade through water that's fog light height, i doubt i'll have a problem...

Sadly in my excitement to get it done, i didn't take any pix, but I'm sure you'll all can imagine what I've done.

I finally took the time and did a 3 step polish (machine then hand polish then hand buff).

So I did a thing today. Added the red pin stripe smiley to the front and the rear. And I glossed the rear valence.

Next thing I'm looking for is the front splitter but not the expensive fitted 1. The stick on kind (see last pic and link

Usually I'd say go for the front splitter but looking at your car now, it looks really good how it is. Not sure if a black splitter will make any improvement.
If you see how high my poor car sits you'll understand. I plan on dropping her soon. And cos it's 19s to complete the look I'll need the lip and skirts to complete. A kind sir on fb did me a mock photoshop of my car and the results below:
and then boom:

Looks good was thinking of doing it when I have some time! Mind if I steal your idea? :)
By all means Bru. Take what you need
