    I want a new car! GPA is the number 1 on my list, but I would also consider the 500. The only thing stopping me is insurace for a 19 year old is still way too high >:(

    I have an AGP love it had loads of cars and been on a few forums mainly Audi and Porsche but this one is probably the best 1 I have joined.
    Oh and insurance is expensive in my eyes for this car anyway Im 30 and I paid less for a 300bhp volvo last year than im paying now.

    Bought a A500c , just wanted to know , what goes wrong with them and how to remedy it. What you can do and what you shouldn't modify. It's been great also to get to know fellow Abarth owners. :thumb:
    Brembo brake kit now on and loving it!

    ...spent 8 months convincing myself when I was buying our second car I didn't need an A500. Went to Wilson Fiat in Epsom and after testing an F500 I thought it would do the job. As I was about to leave I spotted and took out the A500 they had over from Thames. An hour later it had a deposit on it. The it got SS-ed. today it's getting Koni-ed.

    Now I keep reading posts  about spacers, cold air intakes, extra tweaks to the ECU and other things that may as well bewritten in  Latin for all my lack of knowledge. But I worry if I ask what they all do and I get to understand, they will be next on the upgrade list. One question, how do I get that nitrous oxide stuff fitted? See, I know these things, I have watched The Fast and The Furious.  :whistle:

    DanDey, a quick 30-minute journey suggests it was the right decision. Ride was smoother while the handling seemed crisper. Will try and take it out for a longer run but first impressions from both me and the mechanic who fitted them was 'spot on'.
