Abarth 500, 595 & 695 / Rear spoiler, how to remove?
« on: July 25, 2018, 05:05:45 PM »
Anyone know how the stock rear spoiler comes off? Looks glued in which case I won't bother but was considering getting it wrapped if it came off easily enough.

General Chat / Dealer does it again.

My car was damaged on the forecourt last year before I'd even picked it up, getting it fixed was like pulling teeth. Now, days before Abarth Day after being asked not to wash the car (in person, on the phone and leaving a notice inside the car window) they wash it.

What's the big deal you ask? Well my car has been ceramic coated and over this there is a layer of hydrophobic EXO used to repel dirt and water. Whoever washed the car went at it like a bull in a china shop, they scrubbed at bugs on the front, used a naff sponge and dirty water and a car that looked like a mirror is now covered in swirls and marks which are likely in the layer of EXO.

I've taken it to Reep Midlands to get a quote on getting the EXO replaced at the dealers expense and sent them a recorded letter informing them I expect them to make it right. Reep agree that the EXO has been damaged due to naff washing techniques, lucky they doubt the ceramic coating has been damaged.

It's just infuriating a few days before an Abarth event that the car is covered in swirls and scratches where as days before it looked like a mirror.

Abarth 500, 595 & 695 / Service interval... again...
« on: June 25, 2018, 08:21:10 PM »
I started to wonder if a 165 bhp car upgraded to 180 bhp had 6k service intervals like the Comp 180s but the dealer says all 595s are serviced at 9k.

So I'm having trouble getting this locked down to the right answer. Dealer says all Abarth 595 (whatever their model) are serviced at 9k. The internet in a number of places is saying this is wrong and it's 6k for 180 bhp engines.

This shouldn't matter too much as I'll be coming up on a year soon, but can anyone shed light on this (or point me to a thread elsewhere if it's been asked before recently).

General Chat / Fitting PZero Nero to a Abarth should be a crime
« on: May 10, 2018, 08:43:43 PM »
It's been said by many before but the PZero's are just not a good fit for the Abarth. Changed out my PZero for Eagle F1 A2s and the difference is staggering, I knew the PZero's were bad but you just don't realise just how bad till you drive the car with decent rubber.

Honestly feels like a suspension upgrade, the level of grip on the F1's is fantastic.

Adrian Flux Insurance / High quote from AF
« on: December 04, 2017, 11:25:03 AM »
Just a reminder to shop around, with the club discount I had a quote from AF for above 800 pa. The guy on the phone almost sounded surprised that my quote from Privilege was 500 with protected no claims.

Showroom / XSR detailed and ceramic coated (pics attached)

Car was detailed and ceramic coated by Reep Midlands. Their work and professionalism is outstanding, I can't recommend them enough.

Abarth 500, 595 & 695 / Michelin Pilot Sport 3 or 4?
« on: October 27, 2017, 03:07:36 PM »
Looking to replace the 4 Nero's on my XSR and can't pick. Anyone have anything to throw in on these two?

The PS4 isn't a direct replacement for the PS3 and while I can find plenty of thumbs up for the PS3 on the 595 I can't find much on the PS4.

Abarth 500, 595 & 695 / Series 4 main lights, not that impressive?
« on: October 06, 2017, 09:49:51 AM »
Hi all, having moved from the last gen 595 (without xenon) to a series 4 695 Ive been a little underwhelmed with the main lights on dip.

They are misting up (not a major problem as it seems to clear with the lights on) but over all they seem pretty awful lights and Id expected more.

Has anyone else noticed this, or is there possibly something wrong with mine?
