Alarm ?
« on: September 08, 2017, 09:22:44 PM »
Hi I have just bought a new 595 and was thinking of fitting an alarm . I have read some posts recommending alarms but didn't know if having one fitted would invalidate my warranty.
So I called Abarth  today and they said that this was a gray area as if there was a fault on the car was it caused by the alarm etc . So they said that they would look into if they could recommend anyone . Has anyone else come across this ?
Many thanks

I've had an alarm fitted to both my Abarth's by the dealer at the time of purchase....can't believe it's not even an option to spec.
I did have to declare it to my insurance company who classed it as a 'modification' to the vehicle and actually said that it could have increased my premium! (it didn't as it was a Thatcham Class alarm)
