    Weight saving

    What sort of weight have people got there punto's down to?
    What things would you recomend to start saving weight?

    Has anyone seen any carbon panels for these MK1s or lighter panels?

    I've been reading up on this and apparently the sound deadening weighs a bit and worth scrapping out.
