fell in love with this abarth passing the fiat garage and had to buy, covering 250 miles in the car already and i am certainly impressed. although a fault with the radio which is booked in to be looked at?!

    I would expect a few creases to iron out on a new car :)

    Love the colour combination, stunning!

    Thank you. I hope to lower it by 30 mm and get abit more power in the future. But for now it's just fine

    Hi Chippi,

    Still waiting for mine while the dealer add the 180hp kit.

    Hopefully next week  :whistle:

    Yeah will certainly be worth the wait 165 bhp to me just seems abit sluggish but of course my engine will need to cover a couple thousand miles before it starts to free up

    Got my car today and took it for a short road trip.

    Did not push it too hard but was cruising 160-170 on the Autobahn and a few 200+ passes  :thumb:

    So was the elaborazione kit worth it? Is there a big difference? what was your boost before and what is it now?
