It was in our "terms of trading" for the 2nd quarter of 2011 that we must order an Esse Esse kit for Evo and when it arrives it must be fitted to a demonstrator. The part number is not with us yet but this is the first official mention of the kit with regards to minimum standards.
I have been promised a kit since January of this year and was a little sceptical but the information in our trading standards is not like press rumours, it comes from the official source.

Fantastic - six weeks to go!  ;D

I'll be down for a back to back test against my standard car. I like your part of the world  8) and have read lots about your exemplary service  :thumb:

    I'm not known for my patience, that's probably why I'm not called Doctor Kildare (boom boom) :getmecoat:

    I have pricing for the Evo kits.

    Kit esseesse Koni: ~£3,370 - £3,600

    Same price as 500 kit.  Price varies due to regional variations in labour rates.  Choice of white or titanium wheels.

    Kit Assetto Koni: £798 + fitting

    Springs plus Koni dampers.

    In stock at distribution centres, available to order now.

    It's the same price as the 500 kit.

    Different to the 500 kit in that sense then? I believe you can opt out of having Koni's with the 500?

    Splitting hairs much?

    There are two esseesse kits available for 500: esseesse, and esseesse Koni.

    Since most people are buying esseesse Koni, the Evo just has esseesse Koni.  Plus Assetto Koni on both, of course.

    Evo esseesse Koni is the same price as 500 esseesse Koni.

    Looks to be reasonable value as its the same price as the 500 SS kit given it comes with bigger alloys and a replacement back box

    There's a suggestion that the kit also includes the two-piece brake discs similar to the 695, although it's not been confirmed.

    Ooof, still, it's an officially sanctioned kit from the manufacturer which maintains the warranty, this sort of thing always costs a bit more.

    I had pretty much decided to go my own route as I thought this wasn't coming due to sales of the Punto being low, 'tis 6 months late after all, still good that it is coming.

    Now I'm a bit torn, s'pose I'll be able to demo this at the very least before blowing a wad, rather than taking a risk on some unproven stuff.
