GPA Farewell
« on: March 02, 2015, 05:33:49 pm »

  My GPA will be leaving me end of march so goodbye Abarth Grande Punto and hello 595 Comp


   The GPA was been great !
1st ,Autobianchi A112 Abarth 1050 70HP  5 speed . gone but not forgotten..........
Then, GPA alternative wheels,climate control, leather, Hi Fi , RED like really RED,no smoker's kit good.
Now,595 Competizione,record grey,yellow calipers and interscope . 
I see a pattern emerging here.......

    Some exciting stuff coming out of Abarth. I hope Fiat allow Abarth loose with a 124 spider.

    Very nice choice mate. I'm currently looking at an AGP which sounds very similar to your old one. Fingers crossed.

    How have you found the change from the GPA to the 595 Comp?

    Have an order down on a new 180 bhp comp and will be trading my APE SS in, similar change to you!

     well, the 595 is more comfy than the GPA.

      595 is better built than the GPA , no rattles squeaks.

      sometimes miss the 6th gear and cruise control on very long runs.

      The GPA has better steering steering feel ever so slightly.
