I have the original shocks and springs for all four corners of an Abarth 500. They were taken off my own new A500 when it was upgraded to full EsseEsse specification, and so these parts only covered 2,000 miles from new.  Subsequently dry stored. Now having a clear-out and these need a good home. Pix are available. Private sale, I'm in West Yorkshire. Sensible offers, please. Call Paul on 07967874198
Italian Passion for Speed is the premier show in Wales for performance-oriented Italian machinery such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, and of course Abarth. It is held in the amphitheatre-like area in front of the Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay, a venue that is well worth visiting in its own right, with plenty of restaurants, bars, museums and water-side paths for scenic walks.  We've always managed a respectable Abarth turnout at the event, but there is plenty of room for more, so let's see if in 2020 we can outnumber Ferrari!  Cardiff really is not as far west as you think, and there are no Severn Bridge tolls to worry about any more.......

For 2020, the event has been brought forward a couple of weeks, to try to avoid clashes, and it now takes place on a Saturday, and in the afternoon........... so no excuses about needing an early start, as the arrival for display cars is set at 12 noon. 

Further details can be found on the Italian Passion for Speed website, along with instructions on how to secure your place.  Go to:

I was wondering if there is any interest in organising a meet and if so what time and place?
I thought the Lakeland Motor Museum and sometime in March. There is plenty of space for parking and a good cafe 😀

Sounds like a plan 👍👍

I am trying to update my TomTom integrated SatNav (Uconnect 7") on my 2017 595 Competizione 180 but it fails...

I have:

 - A new USB key stick formatted to Fat32.
 - Downloaded the latest .zip file and extracted to the stick as per instructions (Including the license file)

I plug the stick in to the car socket after all start up routines are complete and the car is running. It then picks up the stick asks me if I want to continue which I acknowledge and it seems to start but will always then fail with a code "Update failed(0xa40000)". I remove the USB stick and try again but the error repeats.

Anyone had this or know what it means? The car is under 3 years old so the 3 year map update should still apply?

Hoping the combined wisdom may have an answer as most Abarth dealers seem unwilling or unable to help?

Best regards,

Near Lancaster.
 we have some really great roads close by 30 mins drive to Hawes in the Yorkshire Dales, 40 mins drive to Windermere and about 15 mins to the Trough of Bowland  ;D ideal roads for enjoying the Abarth.
