My EVO is also excellent, nearly 17k in mine and not a single problem.
The EVO is an improved AGP and has the multiair engine much better than the T jet.
You will here good and bad on every car model.
Looks are personal, i loved it the first time i saw it.
Would i buy another, absolutely.

    I bought an ape back in feb 2011 the first 3 days I had it I started having problems after the 15th time it had been back I started to send a few letters round to Abarth and the garage I bought it from,
    I got so fed up with it I threatened them with legal action but 10 days in to my written complaint and a solicitors letter I had a brand new 11 plate APE identical to the previous one but this one is not a lot better I'm still at the dealers moaning about it at least once a month but I love the car so much I can't bring myself to get rid of even though it's at the petrol station more than it is on the road because it's a thirsty mother!!!!!!!!

    No didnt have an AGP but i drove Lloyds AGP  a couple of times, and Lloyd has driven my EVO, i think Lloyd will admit there is a difference in the two cars. We also have a A500 with the T jet engine, so have a good comparison from that.
    Mine is not SS but i have TMC, BMC filter and a set off 18" SS wheels, skydome & climate.
    Not knocking the AGP in anyway, i like it, i nearly bought the last Unregistered one.

    there,s good and bad ones of each, the bad uns get a bit more press because thats the way of the world.

    if you've any warranty left i'd give the AGP a last chance, its a great car.

    if it continues to frustrate you then call it a day. you might find another one that works :whistle:

    My EVO has what i call the DIY SS kit. EVO already has the larger Garret turbo, so i just need just need koni's to complete. :D
    I have driven the EVO SS, it didnt feel as quick as mine , but it had only done 250 miles so no real comparison, Koni's felt good though.
