I'm up for this John. Be good to see you again after we met last summer at Leeds Castle. No mods since then so I need some advice from you and other members what to do next  ;) I'll check out the FB page. Summer holidays are now here so might miss the odd meet but defo up for meeting you guys when I can. Sam

Get it detailed. The best 350 I spent to get ride of the swirl marks on a new car. My detailer even found a smart repair where my new car had possibly got some damage in transit or in the dealers yard. They don't have to tell you if the damage is minimal. After having it detailed you'll enjoy washing it.  As for the pops and bangs the guys are right that Euro 6 doesn't give as good as the Euro 5. Just wire open that valve like we all do and enjoy!  ;)

There's real need to have it working. As others said just push it open and wire it so it says open. Much better sound :))

Meets & Events / Re: Festival Italia, Brands Hatch - 13th August 2017

We are booked as an attending club.

You need to mention this when you reserve your tickets so you can the requisite pass to park with us and not in the generic Italian cars parking area.

I've not created a thread yet, as it is still some months away and there are a good dozen events before it, so few people will take any notice right now! But rest assured we will be there. Hopefully en masse. It was a great event last year.
Great news Colin! hopefully I'll be able to attend this year as I only live 30mins away  :)

Meets & Events / Festival Italia, Brands Hatch - 13th August 2017

I see this event is being sponsored by Abarth UK and AOC but can't find anything on the forum regarding it? Looks like many attended  last year so interested to know if AOC are arranging anything in particular?

The map made all the difference and felt like a new car. I have 200bhp but look to increase this a little more if I go decat and new intercooler ready for bigger turbo. I'd be happy with 250bhp  :)

Thanks for the help. Change the order to circuit grey with black decals with brown leather sabelts. And added performance kit.

Sorry for the random questions, but who is good (the best) tuner for abarths in europe? I found Pogea Racing and G-Tech. Anybody else?

thank you
I have Circuit Grey and the colour looks very different on a sunny day compared to a dull cloudy day.  It has a light grey finish when sunny and dark grey when cloudy. S the my photos. Also, you don't see too many other Circuit Grey on the roads. If you are coming over from Europe in the car via channel tunnel 30 mins away is JF Automotive . They tune anything from Abarth to Veyron. Many with Abarth from the very South of England are using them if you don't want to go as far as London. Great guys.

That pen is great! Pen one end and brush the other. Best investment I've made  :)

A few of us on the forum have used JFA (JF Automotive) in Maidstone, Kent if you are looking for somewhere further south. Excellent service and do many Abarth so they know their stuff just like Pro Alfa. They have done all mods to mine. Give them a buzz.

These wheels are so easy to keep clean. Love em.

Your Abarth / Re: Villagreen - 595 Comp - Forge intake now on

Love the look of the Abarth and the conversion looks really cool, it makes me want to get started on some conversions but I think it is still too early for mine :o
I said the same thing back in October when I picked up my Comp. 3 months later remap and forge induction kit......If I'm a betting man you'll give in soon enough  ;)

Love the front end! Is it massively modified to have it look like the Biposto and 2016 595 front end? Is it simply down to paint to get that cut away look?

I need that front end!! ;)
