500 Pops and Bangs?
« on: July 11, 2021, 01:53:27 pm »
Hi All
I’m new to the forum and Abarth ownership but now a proud owner of a 2015 500 in Campovolo Grey.
So I have a question . I’ve heard lots of people talking about exhaust pops and bangs but try as I might mine refuses to play  :( .  Is this a model issue with it being a 500 and not a 595 or am I not trying hard enough.
Anyway I hope everyone is well and I’m glad to be a member.

    Welcome to the forum  John500 :thumb:

    They all do it but it appears later cars less so.

    Have you got the Monza exhaust?

    Usually bangs on the upshift :thumb: with full throttle :whistle:

    You really need an exhaust like the Monza and then fix the valve in the open position.
