Excellent!
Now to practice my Italian reading all 23 pages....

Does anyone know who/where the first EsseEsse kits have gone? Meridien Milano had ordered their demonstrator kit only a couple of days before mine but have still not heard anything other than "they're are coming from Italy so could be a month, could be 3 months" Helpful :(

    Put the link into google translate it does an OK job, it messes some things up but if you are stuck on anything google can't do I may be able to help, though I have picked more  Sicilian dialect/slang rather than Italian through living in Catania for a few years.

    Ah ok, I thought I'd heard of cars being supplied direct from Italy with the kit already fitted........
    I assumed also that the cars could have beaten the individual kits over. How long since your kit arrived??

    Maybe I should phone up my dealer and find out where exactly my kit has got to! ::)

    RHD UK cars will not come into the U.K. Esse Esse'd from any factory.
    The only exception is the 695 as that is a bit of an odd ball ::)

    That could be interesting,
    As far as I know the remap for Evo still doesn't exsist.
    I'm getting the extra power from a TMC box.

    If they've not done one before they may not know, it's not been widely publicised.

    Hmm, now they don't replace the ECU, how are you going to know its done, I can see this being left out?

    What is holding up your reprogramming John is it training, waiting for software or some hardware?

    It's waiting for the software from Turin.
    Believe me it wont be left out, the kit needs to be registered with Abarth for the warranty before it's fitted and it cannot be finished without the update. You would obviously notice the difference in power, 40 nm is a fair bit of torque.

    I'd hope I'd notice but I drove Ashleys' TMC'd SS and didn't find it a great deal quicker than my Evo (it was quicker but I thick I was expecting more) so I guess I should be lowering my expectations of SS kit when I fit it as that motor has put out some decent figures on the Dyno so clearly has some power.

    To be fair I was on a public road and only had a short blast, so really hard to make a proper judgement as the extra power probably manifests itself more in 4th/5th/6th (over 80) where obviously due to boring stuff like traffic and the law I had to be a little bit more reserved.
