I've now posted 22 times so have hopefully passed the 'minimum posts' test (if there is one) :)

However I still can't click on a + to give a 'carlo rating' and the edit icon still does nothing, could there be a javascript issue perhaps?

I'm using the latest version Chrome but it performs exactly the same on Edge...

Is anyone else experiencing issues giving 'likes' or editing posts?

Abarth 500 / Re: New alloys for 595 comp with Rambo brakes

Rambo brakes?! Not sure I'd trust those... :D



Assuming you mean Brembos, I've been looking into that myself and the general consensus is it has to be Tributo or esseesse wheels unless you want to use spacers.

Uconnect / Uconnect 7” unable to register
« Last post by simonwwf on October 20, 2021, 07:56:08 pm »
We collected our 595 comp Monday it’s on a 69 plate and we have the beats system
As well so today tried to register but came up on misses phone error message as still under priivious owner ? Any ideas how to get over this ? Also Tom Tom maps and services can this also only be activated once we reg with Uconnect? Ie speed cameras and map updates ? Next question on the Uconnect 7” with the beats system is there a option ie loudness on / off ?
Is the base for sub only adjusted by the equalizer ? Many thanks

Abarth 500 / Re: Wheels and Tyres on Turismo

All 3 of my Abarths have come with Michelins, even if it had P-Zero on the spec sheet.  I think the original '09 Esseesse had some Pilot Exalto PE2 from new or something like that, but was listed in the Esseesse brochure as coming with PZero Neros.  I think the 180 Comp had a set of Pilot Sport 3 and the 70th Esseesse I think might be the same or PS4.  The reason I'm a bit rusty on what was/is on each is I haven't had to care until I go to get a replacement.  I've had no issues with any of them.

This may vary depending on the wheel design, but one thing I do make sure I mention anytime I book it in to have tyres changed is to fit shorter valves.  I had to take the original Esseesse somewhere different for an emergency puncture repair.  They done the job but fitted valves that were longer than those from factory.  The Esseesse pack came with a basic tyre pressure monitoring system where the top of the dust cap changed colour, either red or white, to indicate if there was an issue.  Real PIA to get working correctly, had to be taken on/off with a special tool and then I found you had to push the cap down and then twist it back a little to get the indicator to stay on correctly or it would just straight away pop to the wrong colour.  With these caps and the length of the valve fitted, the tip of the dust cap protruded quite a way past the edge of the wheel, to the point you could catch it on a curb.  Took the car to the place I usually use and they swapped them for me.  Also had to make the same request when getting the a tyre for the Formula rims on the 180 Comp.

Regaring the sub/wheel well (UK spec):
The optional Beats speaker upgrade has a sub in the wheel well in the boot.  Came along with S4 transition from memory.

S1&3 have the sub under the drivers seat if specced with the optional Interscope speaker upgrade.  There are at least two versions of that one from what I remember.  One is shorter height wise compared to the other, used when Sabelts are specced as there's less room to fit it under the seat.

Time to start hunting those scrapyards then  :thumb:

Sure I read somewhere about somebody having a subwoofer in the spare wheel well, but not sure if that's normal or not since I don't have an Abarth (quite) yet ;)

Comps used to be fitted with Michelins, don't know if they are now.

Our Series 3 Tricoloure had Michelins, made it even better than the Pirelli shod other Abarths we had.

Its worth fitting Michelins, they're more expensive, but last longer
