Re: My Abarth 500

Think mines the only one in Wales! Great fun! Turns more heads than any supercar, it's just so different. If you park up anywhere you'll get at least one boy racer park up next to you on either side, wanting all the gen or people will just walk past and take pictures! It's mad! My MPG has been 28 (worst) and 30.5 (best) so far. Little tank means frequent refueling.

Everyone wants a race! BTW does anybody else's backfire when you change gear? Mine does, almost every gear change if you dip the clutch just at the right time you get one hell of a BANG! I try and time it with tunnels/walls etc (windows down!) the boy racers go nuts!

Erm that means it's over fuelling (unless its the essesse which can be expected). I'd get it checked .

I was coming out of Escrick at about half 2 to 3 o'clock yesterday. I have a feeling there might be another one round that area. Mine is an 09 plate, but I think there is one with a private reg along the lines of 'FIATS'. I was flashed at about 11am by a 500 owner on the road between escrick and skipwith.

Re: My Abarth 500

Just found where the 'Fiat ss' numberplate Abarth 500 lives, North Duffield. I'm guessing that could be the one you keep seeing!

Re: My Abarth 500

I've used S G Petch for warranty work and they are really good. I know most of the people there now so have a good relationship with them which always helps.
