New A500 owner!
« on: April 02, 2020, 02:10:30 pm »
Hi all!

New here and thought i would say hi!

2 months ago i bought a 2010 Abarth 500.

It has already been modified a bit so maybe a previous owner is on here?

Its running on Bilstein B14's
Stainless decat, resonated centre and active rear (Boost controlled via actuator) although can't see any branding anywhere it is definitely not a custom made one.
Bluespark tuning box, checked and is on setting E (Considering removing and getting a proper remap, opinions?)
Then plenty of visual items, wheel spacers, gloss black rear handle, mirror caps and B pillars, real carbon front whisker, upgraded bulbs all round, the rear lights don't look the same as most of the others i have seen? window tints and a few other bits.

I have fitted bluetooth audio to the factory radio which works great, auto connects, plays my playlists at great quality, can skip tracks on the steering wheel and i have no wires dangling around!

to do list;
New wheels or refurb
Detail / paint correction
Potentially remove front window tints as i'm unsure on them
Sort the rear suspension issue (see my other post - https://www.abarthforum.co.uk/500-abarth-tuning/bilstein-suspension-dilemma/)

New discs, pads and brake lines have been ordered and on their way.
Other than that, drive it and enjoy it!

Pictures to follow when i work out how to do it!

    The Original registration was CA59 JPJ

    Although it is now on one of my plates so it took some picture trawling to try and jog my memory!
