Abarth 500 / Abarth 500 135 W/tuning box vs 595
« Last post by abarthpeak on Today at 12:10:52 am »
Hello all,

Currently have a Abarth 500 135bhp, it has a Bluespark box on it, not entirely sure how much difference it makes. So I’m selling it at the moment to get something a bit quicker, I’ve been looking at a TTS, but I can’t help but consider a 595 180 Comp. The 500 has been fun and even the stock exhaust has been addictive but it’s just not quick enough.

I know the 180 comp will be more than just quick with better shocks etc, but has anyone owned a 135bhp 500 and moved to a 180 comp. Is the in gear performance really quite different.

Really can’t decide whether I’ll be let down by the acceleration difference. I think that’s the biggest thing, I just don’t feel the 135 with the Bluespark feels anything more than slightly nippy and so I’m trying to get something that gives you a little bit more of a rush.

Should I stick with the TTS route? Or would a 180 comp be recommended and what does a standard stage 1 map result in for the comp?

Thanks in advance.

Dd you have any success with swapping out the 5 inch unit for the 7 inch - I am looking to do the same but have encountered a few blind alleys - i have the 7 inch unit ready to go in but cant get a definitive response from Abarth in regards to what else need to be done (proxy alignment to body control unit).

Abarth 500 / Touchscreen Upgrade from 5 inch unit to 7 inch unit
« Last post by Winnie6024 on August 04, 2020, 02:14:26 pm »

Had my 595 competizione for a few days now and loving it all bar the 5 inch touchscreen. After reading a few posts it appears that it is possible to do a  straight swap for the 7i nch unit but you need an unlock code for the new unit and Abarth need to do some sort of dark arts stuff to register the new unit with the body control unit in the car.

However after waiting two days for a call back from my local dealer without success I called a not so local dealer to be told that it cant be done at all - which i dont believe for one minute as the 7 inch was offered as an option on the 2017 vehicle.

Has anybody here successfully upgraded their 5inch screen to the 7inch version if so can i get some guidance.

Many Thanks

Abarth 500 / Re: Stock 165Ps Turismo acceleration?

The engine is torque limited in first gear. Full boost is available in second upwards.
Bluespark box (discount code available on this forum if you search) makes a big difference :-)

Hi All :wave:

Admins thank you for processing my registration so quickly.

Bought my 2017 595 Comp yesterday and love everything about it bar the 5 inch touch screen display and wondered if its possible to swap for the newer 7 inch version without too much bother.

My 21 year old son disappeared with the car yesterday so need to hide the keys in future!!


Report him to the Police :whistle:

I'll move this to the 'UConnect' to get an answer. :thumb:
