I am interested

Thanks John,
I was wondering if I was ever going to make contact on here with anyone lol.. so thanks for getting in touch.
Yes I know the Dick Turpin the more places and times there are the more chance I will have of making some of them.
I will look for the aoc on facebook thanks for that...

So John when is your next outing, and what model and mods have you done to your pride and joy..?

Isnt it funny how you dont see something until you own it and then you see it everywhere lol...

I try to make the Dick Turpin meet when I can but I will probably go into hibernation during the winter  :) to cold to stand in a car park  :)

There is a big meet this weekend at Duxford (you need a ticket in advance so get yourself on the Facebook pages for info)

I have a 2015 Yamaha Factory Racing that has a few modifications, to be honest it is probably just easier to say the only thing I haven't changed is the turbo  ;D

This forum is pretty dead these days so if you can find some facebook groups you will get a lot more responses to questions. I would look up Modified Abarth (definitely the go to if you plan any mods) and Abarth Owners Club South East for more local meets

Hi Graham

The Ace Café meets are quite well supported but it's not the easiest place to get to on a Thursday afternoon/evening.

Are you on any Facebook groups? The AOC South East owners do regular meets and there is an Essex meet at the Dick Turpin (A127 I think) that is held every first Thursday of the month.

Welcome  :)

I think the green could persuade me to sell my podium blue, I need to see one in the flesh.

I think I would be getting a second opinion. If not from another Abarth dealer but an independent Italian car specialist?

Good luck either way  :)

From what I can remember they was focus RS vents, they worked perfectly at getting the heat out, as for rain well I had to put a cover under the bonnet lol, I didn't do this at first and what had happened was that water had got into the spark plug on cylinder one and caused a really bad misfire, fine driving in the rain but not when the car wasn't moving or on etc.

I have seen people make custom ways to catch the water from under the bonnet so that it doesn't affect the engine at all.

Thank you  :) I'm gonna have to look into this I think

Glad your getting your car back  :) It must have been a strange feeling opening that letter!

Can I ask what bonnet vents you have and how did you stop the water coming in?

Hi Laura
Not sure where you are based but this forum has quite a small user base these days so if you're a Facebook user you will find much more content on there now. Local groups as well as the main Owners club.

There are quite a few meets arranged each month now so hopefully something will be suitable depending where you live  :)

I have the Power Motive and I bought mine through Mike @MS_Racing. Just be very patient when ordering because they come from Italy and the average delivery time is about 12wks! It will be worth the wait.

I have ordered a couple of bits from TMC and they have been ok, if it's a stocked item the turn around is pretty quick but I'm sure you will find that the exhaust won't be a stocked item.

All depends on how much you wanna spend. I love my valve controlled Power Motive, noise when you want it and quiet when you don't want to annoy the neighbours.

See you there Colin  :)

Hi JN

You will get various responses to this I imagine but I took it very easy for the first 1000 miles, sport button was not touched until then.

No real reason for any of this, I just felt comfortable putting some miles on the clock before really giving her some stick.

P.S The sport button is on 24/7 now and has been ever since I first switched it on  :) :)

Enjoy

John
