I'll have another go ... Proxy iPad I think you've made a good choice and ever since your original post I've been looking at swapping the cupra for one. I'll still be a 3 car family as I'll need something to put the bikes on, possibly a 9-3, it's good to see something other than white too, red or black would be my choices, oh and a panel filter, remap, td 1.2 pro race and a btb exhaust

Keep us updated with it, what's it like to live with and mpg etc ... In the meantime I'll get myself to rockingham abarth ... Oh and have you looked at sabelt seats yet ?

I really like these, don't see many in red, the Abarth definitely has a different road presence to the normal 500.

Glad you got rid of the plates as the big white badge on the rear one sticks out like a sore thumb!

Nice one Cue

Few little pointers for you

Get them battery terminals cleaned up with some emery paper and the contacts and blather them in battery grease (can cause a whole host of problems with the EPAS + Immobiliser )

Take GREAT CARE jacking it up the sills on the 500 are like toffee my sisters has had a new tyre on at some point (was ex fiat fleet) and they have put a slight delve just under the sill

much better using the "workshop" lifting points on the chassis/ subframe

you might find some useful reading in here:

http://www.fiatforum.com/abarth-500/...on-thread.html

http://www.fiatforum.com/abarth-500/

wonder if the pram wheel spare supplied with lower spec cars and jack will fit over the brakes on the A500 rather than the squirt in goo and pray it seals kit


Oh and does the sexy italian woman on the Blue and me understand you? she sure as hell doens't like the Yorkshire accent

if i had the money to be able to have a 'fun car' that would be the one, the little Abarth's look great
