Thread: Thank you Seat, for the worst name a car could have

    Yeah, still have this piece of crap. I drive it a lot and everywhere and didn't any mods because I starting to like it... maybe.

    So here there are some new photos

    I needed to change my foglight but when I dismounted the front bumper I found a surprise



    Thank you P.O.

    Anyway wanted something new, so this was last shot with this steering wheel (it's for sale if anyone is looking for one)



    Bought a new combo



    But I put everything for sale (like before, hit me if you need something) because I was only interesting in one thing



    That horn button, so I can use that with my Momo Tuner

    In fact I did some little mods



    Paint the side undertray, exhaust and rear tow hook black, because BLLAAAAAACK (if anyone caught the reference you're my favourite person)

    Then loaded it for the summer holiday



    When I came back home I lowered a little bit



    Maybe a little too much



    Did another mod



    (if you can't understand the meaning don't worry, it's something me and my friends invented during the '16 Worthersee, but you can see where the inspiration came from...)

    Took some actual photos



    Then put back on the stock wheels with tires so I can daily driving without any worrying



    And for now is all, did most nothing because I wanted to focus on the other project I have (photo or maybe thread soon) and than change why something bigger and maybe more powerfull.

    See ya

    those borbet reps are soooooo tight on that little guy, definitely would be my first choice (I see you already found a different set though)

    Well yes, this piece still exists.

    Despite I trying in any way and some age-related it doesn’t give up (the photo is for purely example)



    In the 6 years of its honored daily career it has never let me stranded.



    But like all the best things, the end is one step away (also because I doubt it will be able to pass any another MOT, the last one was already difficult)

    So to end this on a high note, I decided to solve the only real problem that has plagued me for years





    Let me tell you that of the last 2 set of tires I finished the sidewall long before I managed to affect the thread ... (and obviously changing the ride height is forbidden)

    So like the old man says: go big or go home



    And here we are at the last song







    And yes, I would like to go down more but I ran out of adjustment
    No, I feel dirty to have all that space in the wheel arch
    And yes I feel even dirtier to have mounted small tires like that
    But at least now I don’t finish my sidewalls every 10min, the cradle and the drain instead

    And yes I know that I am very melodramatic and everything, but at least I did something!

    And here, if you allow me, a little flex just for the sake: pretty much all the steering wheels I mount it in the last 6 years















    As someone told me "that car has changed more steering wheels than oil change" but honestly I don't mind and I don't regret it (and I may have a little issue).

    I love you still have this little bugger.
    The Abarth steering wheel is SIIIICK. Why not do something to the arches to not ruin the sidewalls instead of buying lawn mower tires?

    Thanks for the love man!
    Well I have already rolled the fender to the max without destroy them, and then destroy them with the wrong tools. But still wasn't enough and I don't love over fender (like at all), so smaller tires are the only solution.

    So, what we do? Well we do the same and hope the police don't caught us or charge for anything, so yeah, welcome to Italy, the worst country for modding your car
    i feel your pain, in portugal its pretty much the same thing. drives me nuts, you always feel like a criminal for moding your own car.

    That explains the super stock condition of my three cars imported from Italy.
    At least smaller tires usually bring you closer to the ground.
    More pictures?

    What did import?
    For now no new photos, since it's my daily it's always so much dirty and I'm too lazy.
    And I need to find a new location!

    Same feeling here!
    I didn't know Portugal was so much bad, I saw a couple of swapped cars from Portugal I thought was similar to Spain...

    My Mk3 Golf, my e28 and one of my dolphin grey e30s are imported from Italy. Apart from sketchy alarm/audio installs and aftermarket AC units, they were as stock as they were on day 1.

    Man, I doubt you lack beatiful locations in Italy, so your only excuse is being lazy Stop being lazy!

    Sooo, since @gnmzl asked me so nicely I took some photos of the shitbox

    Of course it obviously rained every time I finished the shift this week, so I did some "moody" shot








    Not what I had in my mind, but they came out almost ok
