wooooohoooooooooo I've do e it!!!!
« on: September 18, 2014, 09:14:45 pm »
Hi

My name is Andy (live between York / Leeds) and after many moons finally bought a 500A !!!!

It is a 11 plate 135 in white, 17 " petals, and has a TMC box (orange, with 6 wires) sat above the fuse box.

So far the wait has been worth it, but it's too quiet! No turbo noise, no dump valve noise, and the exhaust is too quiet!
Those are things to attend to in the future, but first will be the mix of tyres. Can't believe the dealers put Nexxen on! They claimed the precious owner did it, but there seemed to be quite a number of other cars on the forecourt with them on, so took it on the chin.

what is the best tyre for the car? Grip in the dry and wet is the priority over tyre wear. it will be an every day car.
What is the best exhaust for sounds, and pops - without being fleeced too much!?

Cheers Abarth-peeps!!

Big smiles
Andy

    Welcome to the forum! , and what is it about a500 owner ship in Yorkshire?! I was up that was last week as my head office is in steeton, and I saw more a500's than any other car on the road full stop! The place is absolutely swimming with them!  ;D

    Go on YouTube to look at exhausts. Also, use the search button on here for tyres. There's no point asking as everyone has a different opinion but I'd say the Michelin & P Zero get the most votes.

    Yes, you are right about tyres, very subjective  :)
