Abarth or fiat written on the radio.
« on: November 19, 2014, 10:41:07 am »
Maybe this has been up before and I have missed it. I had a 2011 Abarth 500 earlier. When I started the car it was written Abarth on the radio. The car had an accident and was written of and has now been replaced with a 2010 Abarth 500. It still has generation 2 B&M. When I start the car it is written Fiat on the radio. Not Abarth as on my old car. Is this normal on older cars? Can I change it. I know it is a stupid thing but I liked that the radio was reminding me that I was in an Abarth and not a cheap Fiat every time I started her up.

    The earlier ones did display Fiat from the first cars to around late 2010 when they changed to Abarth.

    No one has succeeded in changing the lettering.
