Hi Guys,

Sorry for the late reply, been cleaning all day and just went for a little blast

I have noticed less tram lining and the car feels so much more eager. Very darty because the torque is available very low down

The turbo is whistling so much too 😄

Can't wait for my Akrapovic to go back on

Curious about the blue as well...

If it looks anything like the blue on the 695 Tributo... Well I know my next colour! ;) Do you feel the car sounds any different  Adey? Exhaust note wise with the Monza to the 160 bho Comp before?

That does like very nice I really miss my red 500, I replaced it with a black 595 but it only looks good when clean after a couple of days it doesn't look so good!

Thinking of a black one as my next car Andy  :-X

Depending on how the blue looks, not a big fan of red myself, really like the circuit/record grey but you can't spec it with the leather Sabelts in grey annoyingly...

Don't want another light car so that only leaves Black  ::)

The car is louder and you can hear the turbo whistle which is awesome

Performance feels more than the extra 20hp

I was kindly lent one of these today by Ajay at Thames Abarth!

The car feels amazing as Ady said, no tram lining and less torque steer - despite more torque? You can really feel the difference in performance! And yes the Monza does sound incredible with the Garret.

Nearly ordered a new one today with an amazing offer from Ajay, but decided to wait until September for the blue that Il be ordering  ::) Just got to decide between grey or tan leather sabelts!

Beautiful car will certainly be a better platform for modding if thats your thing. But if anything it should be less responsive low down than the ihi due to the bigger turbo more lag. Be curious to what they would make on a dyno. Having an older car i swapped out to pilot sports and never noticed any tramlining at 190bhp 230ibft. No torque steer either just under steer when being silly. You shoild be able to take these new cars to the limits of the internals quiet quickly. Manufacturers usually build more safety room in

The bigger turbo doesn't noticeably feel any more laggy, it will be of course, but the better torque curve and figures does make up for any difference which I can't tell

If I do mod the car it will be a TMC box or similar. I think around 220 would be just awesome

However the 180 is plenty enough for me

Classic red, damn fine looking example. Looking to get the bigger turbo on my bambino next summer once the wifey releases funds :D
