Indeed, as someone has clearly given your car a little too much attention.

Probably kids, they collect dust caps. That one will have some serious bragging rights, rare find those Abarth ones.

Was it Butlins at Bognor? I was there last weekend picking my daughter up. I wasn't stationary long enough lose anything though:)

Yeah it was Buttlins in Bognor Regus.

Someone nicked my Abarth dust caps >:(all 4 gone. Someone at the Buttlins holiday.. >:(

Don't know if you have resolved this to you satisfaction yet, but we bought some 17" 10 spoke wheels with centre caps a while back, obviously we have centre caps on the wheels we have, if you can make use of the spares we have, make a reasonable offer.

I think it's the dust (valve) caps he's missing.

Certainly nice of you to offer though.

I hadn't had my A500 that long when some unmentionable piece of shite had all four of mine!   >:(  To rub salt in the wound, one of my sons bought me a set of Fiat ones for Christmas last year ::) A bit like those hideous items your mother in law gave you as a gift, which you have to remember to put on display when she visits from whichever dark recess they are hidden in the rest of the time! ;D

yh it's like you aquaplane for the first part of steering input then you gradually get a bit of laboured turn in...to be honest I thought that my virtually new fronts would cope better than they have so far, quite a poor and confidence-denting lack of grip   :-[

I seem to be able to put the power down quite well (perhaps due to the TTC), but you certainly lose any kind of precision in the wet on the P-Zero's

I've never driven a 500 on a set of P-Zero's but the AGP SS and Supersport have always handled exceptionally well with them..  Certainly better than the Potenza's I have on the Supersport at the moment :(

Must be a very car specific thing?

Shocking what's happened in Paris and it winds me up that all the world leaders are "condemning" the actions of the terrorist groups but doing nothing about it!!

Pull everyone "western" out of Syria and Afghanistan then drop the bomb on it.

Job done!!
