Sexy! Time to join the "sports car" team on Ecomodder!

Same suggestions as the Punto
upper and lower grill block
fog light block
undertray
remove side mirrors
kill switch
pump up tires to max sidewall psi

That's a handsome little car.

Suggestions: drive it for a month before you start doing stuff, and of course anything you do, don't start drilling holes yet!

Some kind of grille block for that big gaping fish mouth, or the little grilles down low at the sides, I reckon I'd start there. Get it on some stands and see how the underside looks, too.

I was surprised that this one doesn't have the undertray, as the Punto had it all around the floor.

Although it looks like an enormous mouth it is already blocked on most part of it. Obviously it still has openings for the upper part and the lower , I will update with more photos.

I think that the undertray will be a must for this car. I already miss that the Punto was quiet when passing with little stones and this one is very noisy in that aspect. Apart from that is very quiet and somewhat easier to drive.
