The only thing I want from ss kit is springs and konis.

Will probally fit ss disk and pads when need new ones as like drilled disks and the air filter can get from the net.

    The esseesse kit for Evo, in my opinion, is a waste of money.  As MarcoPolo says, no-one wants to take those scorpion alloys off, the car already has Brembos and doesn't need an upgrade, and a 10 bhp increase in power is more than a little disappointing.

    However, there's a reasonable chance there'll be a Kit Assetto Koni for the Evo, with just springs and Konis.  That would be well worth opting for, and it's likely it'll be priced realistically, too.

    I like the esseesse wheels, think they would go great with my white motor so I'd happily have them on my car, also want a set of wheels for road tyres and track tyre.

    The perforated discs and upgraded pads would be nice and will probably need them after my 4th trackday as I'll probably take some life out of this set, stock brakes do seem fairly decent though.

    Extra power with the limits properly set in the ECU sounds handy, something that has been properly tested and supplied by the manufacturer is not to be knocked really even if it doesn't go quite far enough, particularly on a new drivetrain where it doesn't have a lot of history, lots of reported issues on gearbox already, stupid amounts of torque aren't going to help that.

    New springs and dampers, I'm quite up for these too, my only concern is that they won't go far enough and that I might want some adjustability, that said if they offer a decent improvement I'd be happy to go with it, sometimes too much flexibility can be a problem, particularly if like me you don't know what you are doing :)

    The only bit I wouldn't care  much for is the exhaust back box as I'd go for a full pipe kit but I'm sure anotherr AGP/Evo owner might be up for it, so I am ready to hear about this kit and the prices

    I'll be keenly awaiting kit info and prices but Abarth will have to pull their finger out as unless I move soon I am likely to do the 12k mileage limit in 4 months and would have done my 4th or 5th trackday by then too.
