Malc said the same, he really liked it once he had got used to it & he said how nice it was to drive.

He will probably get it back soon anyway as she is STILL squeeking !!! :'(

there not going to sort it until abarth come up with a modified shim for the brakes. (if its the same reason for the squeel as is on the mjet/tjet) - this is what fiat did if you took your car back with squeeling brakes on the mjet/tjet - hope that made sence lol.

    Strange, As soon as the Chunky Monkey put copper slip on the back of my pads the squeek stopped and 2000 miles later its still quiet.

    You tried giving it a thrashing and see if the brakes still squeak?  ;D
