Hi Pikeyboy

You use the word Concentric, do you mean Hubcentric, I believe the latter means the spacer will have a lip facing outward which your wheel can fit onto.

Using the correct word in an internet search might give better results and answer your question.

This not any form of criticism as I had to ask a while back :D

I'm in the UK  too, just thought they might share the same loom. Clearly not then.

I'm not in the US, I'm in the UK.  No wiring in place prior to doing the retrofit.

Just an update on this thread I started.
Although the car has not been used much over the past couple of weeks due to the current circumstances, the treatment is working.
I checked the valve today and its still good and free with no dry metal squeaking. I will update again when I am able to use the car on a more regular basis.

Abarth 500, 595 & 695 / Top Mount "Play"

Hey Guys...

We've just been through a warranty claim to have the NSR shock replaced, was knocking and banging a gooden!

Last year we reported a clunking sound coming from the front of the car, and the dealer (not supplying) said that all they found up front was the top mounts with a little play; they say is normal for 500's.

The other week I was going up our farm track driveway with the other half and you could hear a clonking noise coming from the front end, could almost feel it through your feet. When it was in this week for the rear shock I mentioned this again, same answer after they looked; "slight play in front top mounts, normal".

We're getting close to the end of our warranty and I am a bit worried - I used to read all over the forums about issues with top mounts - wondering if I should get a bit more serious with the dealer?

Aren't reversing cameras law on new cars in the US? Surely all the wiring should already be there?

As per the other post, I now have Stuís camera installed, which is excellent and leaves a nice clean bumper.

Iíd like to endorse Stuartís service - he fitted one of his kits for me today, and it is excellent. The coloured grid is not dynamic but still give a helpful indication of distance, and the image is very clear.  And he manages to get the cable inside the rubber conduit to the bootlid!
Great job Stu, thanks again.

As Carpasio said, I can supply fully plug and play kits to install a reversing camera that looks 100% OEM; the only downside being the distance markers aren't dynamic.

The kits take about 2 hours to fit yourself, with absolutely no cutting or soldering or any other alterations to the vehicle required. Or, as stated, I can fit the kit for you in a little less time, obviously for an extra charge.

Full details are available on my 124 website at - where I'll also be adding other tidbits and add-on information.
