Gutted for you.

Someone has just had Autowatch Ghost fitted to the their Abarth - looks very good.

I thought the Ghost coulden't be fitted to the Abarths because of the canbus system? Someone else said it stated on the instructions "Do not fit to 595 / Abarth" or did I get that wrong?
The beatings will continue until morale improves.

It can apparently be fitted to the 500 Abarth, it's not compatible with the latest 595's

Wow so erm had to go to the post office to collect a parcel that I missed, signed for it and it was way too small to be what I thought it was (power bank).

Sat in my car opened the letter, saw it was a letter from the police!! They've found my abarth!!!!! xD

Only problem it's in London lol

Bet that was a surprise after all this time , but good on the Police for finding it. Hope someone enjoys a little prison time for their trouble.
Are you going to have it back...?

Glad your getting your car back  :) It must have been a strange feeling opening that letter!

Can I ask what bonnet vents you have and how did you stop the water coming in?

From what I can remember they was focus RS vents, they worked perfectly at getting the heat out, as for rain well I had to put a cover under the bonnet lol, I didn't do this at first and what had happened was that water had got into the spark plug on cylinder one and caused a really bad misfire, fine driving in the rain but not when the car wasn't moving or on etc.

I have seen people make custom ways to catch the water from under the bonnet so that it doesn't affect the engine at all.

Thank you  :) I'm gonna have to look into this I think

Really really sorry about bringing this back up but I've just had a speeding ticket from whoever's  owns my car, what do I do? Been stolen over a year now.

Strange that the car ended up not massively far from me either, at the time I wanted the car back but they told me it was gonna be crushed.

They are.
ODB port locks &/or diskloks are essential.
