Hi there,

Got a 68 plate A595C Turismo last week after some ping pong emails with the dealer. After many pictures and videos of the 'A1' car was slightly frustrated to get delivery and find it had a small crease/dent and multiple paint chips (seat belt on sill). That said, they did say they would send a touch up stick and sort out the dent.....

Coming from a Polo GTI, it has been a bit of an eye opener, but am getting used to it!

A couple of things have come to mind. Found at last night that the map updates run out a couple of weeks ago. That's not annoying at all!! So does anyone know what the cost is for taking out a fresh subscription?

Also, started digging around looking for Cat2>1 can-bus alarms. My understanding was there used to be a Meta that was available as an accessory. Has anybody got this to comment, and know what model it is?

The car was listed as a '70th' edition, but it clearly is not. However, we finally got it for the price we wanted to pay so it all worked out in the end.

Cheers,

Mark

    Sorry I cant answer any of your questions but just wanted to say welcome to the world of Abarth... I got my 595 competizione a couple of weeks ago and I am absolutely loving it. (girlfriend previously had the 500 abarth about 6 years ago and it's great to be able to drive one again)

    Welcome to the forum marky9074 :thumb:

    Sounds a bit of an unnecessary and problematic buy :thumbd:, why do some dealers behave this way ???

    If you post your queries in the appropriate page eg. https://www.abarthforum.co.uk/uconnect/ then you'll have a better chance of a result. :thumb:

    Hi and welcome, sounds like a slightly iffy dealer but that's a nice spec you've got there, 70th anniversary or not  :thumb:
