Soon to be Abarth 500 MTA owner
« on: May 09, 2017, 11:34:10 pm »
Well more correctly, my missus is soon to be an Abarth 500 MTA owner. Picking up a 2014 model with 27,000 on the clock from the Slough dealer on Saturday morning to replace her Smart Brabus which is nearing end of life.

Tried my upmost to get her in the Competizione version but the hard seating & suspension was a deal breaker for her, though she did like the 17" wheels, extra 20hp and Monza exhaust so I guess these are the first mods that will be doing to the 500!

Car's don't stay standard for long in our house and the first stop after collecting the car Saturday morning is Tune4Performance in Watford where Tony will be letting us know what remap options he can provide for us...

Anyway, already making a list of all the mods and things we can do to this wee beastie over the coming months - and looking forward to getting to know you all!

    Welcome along Dave :)

    A proper remap is the way forward, sounds like you have a good tuning garage not too far from you as well.

    Be sure to get some pics up! We also have a Facebook page, link below :)

    Picked it up yesterday. Supplied with 140 horses and within the hour it was mapped to 160 horses,

    Has gone from luke warm to scorching hot.
