Mapped 500 or 595
« on: October 06, 2021, 01:04:19 pm »
I’m sure it’s been discussed plenty but I’m in the market for a 500 or 595, I’ve come across a remapped 500 putting out 185 BHP, or should I hold out for a 595, my budget is 5500 max

    For me this comes down to insurance, I recently looked at a Modded Abarth 595 and the insurance was 4x as much, the Turismo with 165bhp as standard is £200, an Abarth with intercooler, stage 2 remap, performance exhaust etc. is over £800.

    Apparently insurance co's can check if you have been chipped (all to do with the checksum) in which case no insurance.

    Personally I would choose a car that was built to meet it's performance, if modded then everything else should be upgraded to the same level.....but then I am probably a lot older than you.

    If you are thinking of chancing it with the insurance don’t do it, insurance assessors know what they are looking at just a quick connection to the OBD port and all is revealed. I’m also quite old and gave up modifying cars years ago most mods become irritating after a while noise harshness etc.

    My 500 has 177bhp after tune4performance remap. Insurance went from £290 to £360. Easily worth it the difference the remap made. Plus the extra torque. I’d post the graph but any pics I upload seem to disappear into the ether.
