Hi

Cool forum, look forward to getting to know you

Another Fiat Coupe owner (noticed a nice Porto a few threads below), currently have 2, one which is a "tastefully" modded daily and another I'm doing my best to restore after sitting in someone's garden since 2006

Anyway here are a couple of pics

Hi and welcome. Cars look good, can't wait to see one at our breakfast meetings. Funny how some cars age better and look nicer now than when they first came out? Only me that thinks that about these? :)

No I agree

They were very much marmite when launched and over the years people have become more appreciative of the Bangle design.

However I think they still look great even against modern cars in their class and still every bit as quick considering it's now 20 years old. People are put off by stories of reliability and the dreaded belt change but it has been "so far" one of the most reliable cars I've ever had.

THat 5 pot noise though :D

Cheers, yeah I think the wheels suit the car well.

Toying witht the idea of doing a 5 stud conversion so I can do the Alfa Gta upgrade to 330mm Discs, 6 pot calipers and Use the Gta wheels. Think they would look good on a coupe
