Title: Any feedback would help
Post by: aaron14 on December 18, 2014, 01:22:05 pm
Am i right in saying the differences between the supersport and esseesse are:

supersport 180hp upgrade, badges, esseesse exhaust, bmc filter and do they have the koni kit (esseesse springs (are they lower than standard??) and shocks)?

esseesse 180hp, exhaust, filter with bmc on box, 18" wheels, ventilated brakes, koni kit including shocks and springs?

Differences are:

Wheels

Brakes

Suspension

The map, exhaust, induction are all the same.

When I say "Standard" above I mean identical to the 165 EVO :thumb:

Noticeably! I think the official line on is 20mm for the springs.

I parked my Assetto Koni'd Supersport (Koni shocks, Esseesse springs) next to a standard Supersport at an event in September and everyone commented how low it looked..  Even Phil, one of the salesmen at my local Abarth dealership was surprised.

I think the drop is larger when combined with the Koni shocks, as the spring rest of the Koni kit I had was lower on the shock body than the standard shock.

Would love to see it! Koni shocks don't come cheap though do they think they were around £7-800

There are some mighty good deals around at the moment..  Best bet is to ring around your local dealers to see if they've got one sitting in their stock room somewhere :thumb:

Someone on here did just that recently, got the Assetto Koni kit (Koni FSD and Brembo springs) for £400 and picked up a set of optional wheels with new Bridgestone tyres for £250 at the same time! :o

Yes, sorry, Abarth dealerships..  It's worth ringing around, most will be more interested to do business if you can collect but some will ship..

I think I paid £20 to ship my Supersport suspension :)

Yeah, that's not an Esseesse kit - well not a complete one anyway as it's missing the exhaust and BMC filter..

I think it's actually an Assetto Corse kit, which for the EVO is uber rare 8)

That aside there's not a lot I could do as they wouldn't take a credit card otherwise I'd be breaking it now ;)

Esseesse kit for the super sport as that already had the exhaust and bmc however a proper esseesse had the fsd's too.
Still cheap tho.
Get it on paypal with the credit card linked to it ;-)

There was never an Esseesse kit released for the Supersport ;)

As for PayPal - I made an offer for a number of items, so all off PayPal and eBay ;D

Will,

Do you happen to have part numbers for the Koni's and Springs for the Supersport?

Also would the Bilsteins already on the supersport not work?
Title: Re: Any feedback would help
Post by: will-w on January 13, 2015, 06:45:34 pm
Bilsteins?

As for part numbers - I'll have a rummage in the garage later to see what I can find :)

I thought they were what was already on the supersport? obviously wrong on that one then haha

Nope, the Supersport has exactly the same shocks and springs as a Normal Production EVO 165...  I don't know who manufactures these, it could be Bilstein, but they're certainly nothing special :thumb:

The Assetto Koni kit (Koni FSD shocks, Brembo springs) is the same kit as is offered as part of the Esseesse Koni kit.
