I kind of doubt there is a run in period these days, though is always safe to say wait til your engine is up to temperature before letting fly😇
I tend to allow 3k before being over adventurous... might want to keep the car long term!

No defined run period as far as i am aware.  AS per Andy`s post......warm up the engine before you let rip.
Have to admit to a heavy right foot within a week of picking mine up ....and boy does the car want to move...... :)
Have fun and enjoy.

The howl from the Akrapovic on boost is very addictive, I doubt you will resist  ;D

That depends on whether the howl from the exhaust can outdo the whine from the passenger seat🙄

Hmm, wonder if BMC Airfilter and Alloy gas cap is standard in Germany too?

Mine has a regular air filter and plastic gas cap :-(

Well, I can tell you it is, just came back from my dealer with both Billet gas cap and BMC filter  ;D

Picked mine up on Friday and have been enjoying it all weekend, that exhaust note on turbo...! It's a totally different car from my 595, feels much more planted, I'm not sure if its the koni's or the PZero Nero's but it feels much more stable in the wet as well.

Only issue is that I should have 180bhp but the dealer screwed up and I'm still at 165bhp, I have the koni's and the brembo's fitted but have to wait until next week for the EMC update as they screwed up the order. They didn't help the issue when they seemed to suggest early last week that it would be better to have the car pre-EMC upgrade as "that's what Abarth suggest" which I said I can understand but I'm a) used to driving Lotus's and a turbo VX220 so I'm not that worried about the power and b) if I'd gone for the Competizione as I'd first planned, I'd have driven that away with 180bhp anyway. Then at the end of the week on the day I pick up the car they drop that the chip isn't here and they'll have to do it later.

I also have no alloy fuel cap, does anyone remember the subject title of the email the dealer should have got? I was sure I remembered reading it here but can't find it.

ANYWAY, moan aside it love it. But then I've always considered Abarth's to be more than the sum of their parts and way better to drive than the motor press give in reviews.

welcome to the club Ben.
We love ours too, and yes the exhaust note is fantastic.
Somewhere on this thread is detail of the e mail you need. You may be best advised to send a PM to Neil R, he probably knows it well, I have seen him mention it a few times.

It won't be the PZero's, I had a Tursimo as a courtesy car and found them awful in the wet compared to the Michelin PS3's on my Comp.
