I was 17 years old when I bought my Cuore and I’ve owned it for about 6 months or so. It was a 2002 model with roughly 68.000 km, no rust and all ways maintained at the garage that sold the car new. It belonged to an old lady who barely drove it, hence the low mileage. This particular car stood out to me because of the chrome grille, later I learned that my car has the ‘Party’ package, a 500 euro option that included the chrome grille, wider wheels, rear parking sensors and a nice black interior.
The first big ‘project’ that I did was adding a second rear foglight. It was a bit of a struggle but it looks so much better! I also changed the dashboard and the surround for the radio with ones that had walnut wood stickers on them, don’t know if that was an option back in the day, but I like it, also got a gearknob to match.
Currently I’m trying to fit a sport airfilter to improve the sound a bit, but it a bit tricky in terms of space and fitment (it would fit behind the radiator and only inhale hot air). I’m also expecting chrome mirror caps in the near future, imported from Japan and I’m looking for a partly wooden steering wheel. I’ve found the wooden steering wheel from a Japanese website but its pretty expensive and I don’t know if the wheel will fit, maybe somebody here knows it better than I do.
