Abarth 124 / The Final Count
« on: August 27, 2019, 01:33:56 PM »
So the 124 Spider is no longer sold in the UK, and from the look of it, the rest of the world soon.  From internet research it seems there were 1878 Abarth 124s sold here in total (1093 Manual, 720 Auto, 65 Scorpione).  So we are an exclusive and now limited club.  Does anyone have access to data which might support/challenge these numbers?

From the same source (https://www.howmanyleft.co.uk) it seems there were 2879 Fiat 124 Spiders sold.

Abarth 124 / Lost my local dealer
« on: March 08, 2019, 12:01:10 PM »
Just received an email advising me that Startin of Redditch will no longer be Fiat or Abarth dealers with effect from 1 April 2019.  Looks like I'll have to go to Johnsons at Solihull or further afield for service etc.

Abarth 124 / Reversing Sensors
« on: October 18, 2018, 12:26:58 PM »
Just noticed that the reversing sensors operate at different distances.  The two on the direct rear at 1.5 metres and the two corner rear at 0.5 metres.  This means if you are reversing and turning at the same time (e.g. reversing out of a car park slot) you will only have 0.5 metres when the warning starts if there is an obstruction.

Abarth 124 / Crossfire Bonnet!
« on: October 06, 2018, 12:24:41 PM »
I just had some passers by drooling over the car and wondering what it is.  Spoilt it by saying they liked the Crossfire style bonnet!!!  Nothing like it in my view.

Abarth 124 / Door Sill Protectors for 124
« on: September 28, 2018, 05:39:41 PM »
Has anyone fitted these to their 124 Spider?  I can see they are going to get quite marked after time and it would be nice to cover the target area, preferably with an Abarth logo.  Where can I get a couple?
