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

Hi Colin

There is a monthly meet on the 1st Thursday of the month (tonight  :) ) at the Halfway House, Brentwood CM13 3LL

Normally have about 20 Abarths there, good pub food available and runs from about 6pm till 10pm. They are a friendly bunch as well  :)
