Does anyone know if the first 200 or the standard 500 Abarth spec comes fitted with the "Interscope" hi-fi system with the sub?  Not that i'm some bass loving boy racer, i just like good music with some bass - honest!

    I'm not 100% sure it will be badged  Interscope but all the 500's (2009my anyway) will come with the Hifi upgrade as standard just like the GP, big thumbs up as it was one of the options I was going to buy.

    I don't know how it will be in the UK but the Interscope system seems to be standard equipment on 500A at least in Italy, Germany, Austria and France. The Netherlands is the only country that I know of where Interscope is an option (400 eur).

    Sorry, I'm in thick mode here this morning. Is the Interscope system just the sub that I have fitted to my AGP? €400 seems a lot for a plastic box.

    I assumed it was rather more than the sub.

    The interscope is an external sub under the seat, external amp, and 6 uprated speakers.  It was well worth the 400EUR I paid.

    Fairly sure its the sub (def), upgraded (possibly extra) speakers (?) and a digital sound processor (def). My other half has the Panda version which sounds excellent, I've got BOSE in the 159 which is much better though  ;D so will look forward to seeing how the Panda/500 compare.

    Shame Abarth didn't BOSE in to do their systems although a lot of thier home entertainment stuff is over hyped the car systems and small speaker systems are always excellent quality for the price.
