Pretty much as the title says really...

I know the Supersport has a few parts from the kit already but is it worth getting it and selling/ keeping the duplicate parts?

Also, if I did upgrade, what should I go for wheel colour wise on a Campo grey car,  white or Titanium....choices choices...shame they don't do black as I like my claws.

    I would go white and go for it if you want too  :thumb:

    More abarth parts is always a good thing

    Make some furniture out of the parts left over  :whistle:

    I do love my black wheels though so if I'm not happy with the titanium I will get them sprayed black like the scorpions comes with, will look mean again ;D, we see....

    As far as I know the only difference between the pre made Supersport to have and the esseesse kit is the wheels?

    Not quite, the Supersport doesn't have the Koni shocks, esseesse springs or the fully floating front disks.

    The Supersport only comes with the exhaust and the engine chip from the kit, the esseesse kit has all the unrated brakes and suspension bits, which is a shame the supersport couldn't have actually come with in the first place, the brembos on the Supersport are on there as standard and once the esseesse disks been fitted it will be the save as the big brake kit, it's all very confusing....

    Ah fair nuff, didn't realise that :P

    Personally I wouldn't want to get rid of the black scorpion alloys. May be tempted in the rest of the upgrade myself. How much is the kit?

    The 18 inch wheels transform the car - should have been standard in my opinion. 17 inch wheels look too small and are lost on the car. Well done - worth every penny  :thumb:
