If you are a cool cat who owns a mk1 punto then you are going to be getting some cool new brake lines. While mine is in I am going to ask if they can paint the calipers red so my brakes will be just as good as a Ferrari!

You should have had them changed years ago, it's a VERY old recall! I would be surprised if any Mk1 punto owners on here haven't had their's done already. It's possible that Fiat couldn't find the new owner of your car hence why it took them a while.

Yep, just checked, originally issued 2001!

Haha **** me yeah I just found that out looking round some of the punto forums. The conditons near me must not be agressive enough though because I haven't died yet.

Yes it is an old recall, but obviously if the car has changed owners etc, they may only just be tracking people down.

Jax - Ferarri owners pay £500 for their calipers to be red :eek:, but then like you said, it makes your brakes even more super duper :laugh:

Not that I'm for colouring calipers unless you have the real Brembo 4 pots, but use hammerite paint and do it yourself you lazy sod.
