Hello,

First, nice to meet you and sorry for my english. I hope it will not be too difficult to read me.

I am Baf_karting, Im living in the south of France in Nissa. When I was 20 years old (in 2003) , I owned a Fiat Coupe 2.0 16 Plus in red. I have broked this one fews years later. This summer, riding to my work with a two strokes (Aprilia RS), I met in front of my residence a Fiat Coupe in yellow. I stop my ride immediately to speak with the owner. I realize that the coupe was exactly the same than mine, a 2.0 16v Plus with air condition and leather seats. 29000km shocked full historic, only owned by old people (3 owners), I ask the certificate, date of the first immatriculation 24 May 1996. Im born the 24th of May crazy love Few weeks later, I was the owner.

Everything was new, but old of 23 years! Dot of the tires 2000, Cam belt origine, etc... So I did everything and the list is long. I can now riding the car of my yougness in safety condition.

It's not my garage... unfortunately love it's the garage of a friend of me. I have the project to tuned my coupe. Cat cam, head ported, etc..., etc...

In first, i did the basic maintenance and restauration:
- 17 alloy wheel with new tires
- refected some electronics problems
- Painted the bumper and side skirt
- Created some rings with my 3D printer
- Put some song
- Created an exhaust in inox, i have kept the cat. Intermediaire Ragazzon.
- Chip FC performance
-etc..

For the future:
- I have ordered 7*17 Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 ET 30 instead of the one I have purchased (9,4kg). the TD are 7,8kg in 7*17 as you know..
- This morning, I was in the garage of my friend to see what will we do together and what will be the cost. I'am looking for 170/180 bhp
I'm researching on the forums all the ideas and experiences and it's a real pleasure to read it!! Honza is a good source of inspiration for 2.0 16v NA yes

During my first Fiat Coupe, I was in a forum in France but now this one is like dead.. And I am not using Facebook. I am so happy that you are alive thumb

This week, I will:
- change the gearbox oil with the Castrol Manual EP 80W (I prefer used a mineral oil which was the recommandation of Fiat for this engine old of 23 years, and it's a API GL4 anyway)
- refect the headlights with a spray anti UV 2K
- refect the instrument bord in black (just the upper parts)
