"Lovely little motor"
« on: June 26, 2014, 08:18:47 pm »
Said a guy who I was next to at the lights. He wanted to swap his Beamer 325i for mine... Sorry sir, this pocket rocket is all mine!
Plus, the monza is ordered and being fitted... In July.. Sucks! A month I have to wait... Oh well :)

Chuffed!

    Excellent...
    Out of interest, why did you go for the Monza?
    Retro cool... Nothing will match it!

    Hi,

    The sound, the sound, the sound. When I was collecting the car back on the 14th there was an abarth with the monza and luckily for me someone was takin it for a test drive. The initial start up sound was lovely, deep, raspy sound and when it pulled away.. To hear it going through the motions was even better!
    Plus I've watched countless monza vid's on YouTube and other ones with 500's with scorpion exhausts etc but I much prefer the monza.
    Apparently there's gains in mpg too.. But why put an exhaust on the car (which primarily your going to want to hear properly) and then drive like your nan... I'll be driving like I do now... Spirited :)

    I've got a job to do, show the public how good the abarths are and the sound they can bellow with the right attachments! :)

    Exactly! You can bless people with the venom you'll spit from the monza! I can't wait :) check the monza's out. It didn't take me long to decide I want one!

    How much are Monza exhausts? Is there much difference in sound between a Monza on a standard vs Essessee 500?

    The price I was quoted including fitting and VAT was £795. Technician said it would take about half an hour to fit. You can buy them online at the moment for 645 but that's an online only offer, which will be posted to you.

    I wouldn't know about the sound diff in the esseesse kit add on, I don't have that "bolt on".

    All I can is YouTube research, they'll be Loads of videos on there with 500's with the monza exhaust and the esseesse pack so you'll be able to hear the sound.. Though I'm sure it won't make much of a sound difference. With our without the esseesse kit, you'll still be smiling from ear to ear... As well as turning heads In the high street :)
