At the front it bolts onto the lower seat holes on the floorpan from what I can see.

Abarth 500, 595 & 695 / Floating discs for Brembo calipers
« on: July 09, 2016, 06:16:16 PM »
Where can one purchase the floating discs for the Brembo calipers?

I have heard that they are not sold without the bells but what's the point  then other than allowing heat expansion?!

I don't need discs yet but it's good to make some plans for when needed.

Introductions / Hi
« on: June 02, 2016, 09:31:07 PM »
Hi everyone,

A few days ago I came across this forum and it's good to find another place with like-minded enthusiasts.

I've had my 500 for just over 6 months so far and it was a love-hate relationship so far due to the ride quality (or lack of but more on this in another topic) and a couple of small niggles that have now been sorted out (front lower control arms ball joints, a droplink and a rear wheel bearing).

At last I love the car now and am going to keep it for a while at least!
