Abarth 500, 595 & 695 / Series 4 Owners with 7" uConnect System
« on: January 22, 2017, 02:21:11 PM »
Guys, I've just checked my uConnect system against what should have been updated at the point of purchase (Nov 16) and the Nav system was well out of date.

If you go to Mopar Homepage and read the info it appears that we'll be getting 3 years of updates for FREE!!!, yeap you read that correctly free updates.

You need an 8GB or larger USB stick, register on the site then download the updates. Extract the .zip file locally then copy to the USB (saves a lot of time, trust me).

Go out to the car, start the engine, wait for the nav system to boot and stick the USB in. The screen will tell you your currently installed version and the version on the USB stick, and ask if you want to update it.

If you select to update it, you'll either have the car sitting for just under an hour, or better still use it for an excuse to go for a drive.

Hope someone finds that usefull.


General Chat / New Abarth Dealer - SE London

Just thought I'd let those of us in south east London that Ancaster Downham appears to be selling Abarths, so I can only assume that they can now also service them.

Research Abarth / Second Abarth From Research
« on: November 06, 2016, 01:42:23 PM »
I've just picked up my second Abarth from Research Garage, and very much like my first purchase the deal was completed with ease. Oliver contacted me to see how I was enjoying my old turismo and I showed an interest in the current shape, but this time upgrading to the comp. We spec'd up a car and in a short time scale a deal was done and I collected it last Tuesday. I've since put 400 miles on it and here's my observations on it.

A marked upgrade on the seating and suspension side of things, not so harsh and crashy, the monza exhaust has a nice little rasp to it, like an upset wasp. The car has the aerial on the rear quarter window on the offside, which hasn't given the best of performance. The DAB drops stations at will. I wonder if swapping to an old style roof mount would resolve? The brakes are nice and big, with big Brembo stickers on them, but the do squeal at times when driving around town. Sadly Abarth/Fiat haven't resolved the issue of the indicator cancelling itself when indicating to turn right but having to have a quick turn left first. 

Would I buy from Research again, yes without hesitation.


General Chat / Not Trusting A Dealer!
« on: October 26, 2016, 04:57:12 PM »
I've got an order in for a new comp, which has the car sitting at the dealers at the moment. I cant collect it due to my insurance company being awkward, might be down to my renewal being on Nov 1st.

Now I understand they have to fit the comp extra's, but after leaving a request for the car not to be touched for anything other than that I just don't have any trust in them.

The salesman is currently on holiday (who I do trust), but his colleagues just don't give me that same level on trust.

The car will be going for professional detailing and sealant applied when I get it, and I've already been warned that if they have washed and cleaned it then this will results in extra delays and costs!

Should I trust them or should I just cancel it and get my deposit back? Yeah I know I'm being paranoid but I just don't trust these salesmen.

So I just called to get a renewal/quote for the new Comp and they could only find it under the Fiat 500 list! Strange to find it under there being a company that prides itself on dealing with performance vehicles.

Although I couldn't provide a registration the quote was over double what I'm currently paying, whilst having yet another year of NCB! Time to shop around me thinks.
