My mate's just got his second year of no claims and is after something faster than his 1.2 SXi!

He's looking at Punto GT's. Does anyone have any dealings with the Puntos? What are they like? Any other suggestions instead of it?

There's one on Ebay and he wonders what this means:

"WARNINGS:

no maximum engine speed limit (max engine speed 7,000 rpm)"

The only thing I can think of is that he's taken the limiter off for some reason?

Ta!

yes, it is!

205bhp sounds slightly adventurous to me, 160-170 i reckon. and it is a fiat -i wouldnt bother.

I know if you de-limit the Pug205 it stops with the low speed kangarooing...

He's not interested in old square boxes

He wants something standardish bar the usual mods that can still surprise a few people
