Hi there Guys and Girls, as a newbie to the Abarth (have had many many vehicles before), and wanting something that stood out, looked different and performed we decided upon a Abarth 695 XSR.  It has the Brembo front brakes too which is a bonus, i have it booked in for a service at Huttons near Weston in 2 weeks and asked about a power upgrade from the standard 165 to 180Bhp.  The chap on the phone stated it was a mechanical upgrade - can i ask for some advice ref this please? I thought it would be a computer upgrade........Thanks, and any advice is appreciated.  We have the best looking shopping car in Somerset!

    Welcome to the forum Roemiesterr :wave:

    I'm pretty sure the 695 XSR had the gt1446 turbo as standard, same as 180, therefor a remap available outside the Abarth official network

    If Huttons are an official ABARTH  dealer then I suspect they are referring to the KIT ELABORAZIONE 180HP  https://www.abarthcars.co.uk/kit-accessories
