Yes, they are need a bit of a refurb but thats waaaaay down the list of stuff to do.

Just took car for a spin with lambda disconnected and seemed a lot better, will be swapping that tomorrow now (the benefits of working in a motor factor!).

Mine are in refurb state as we speak! You don't happen to know what spacers it's running front and rear do you?

Nothing on the front at least. I don't know what ET mine are though.

I'll probably run a 5mm front and maybe 10mm rear soon though.

re: My '93 1.4 16v Cinquecento

you want wider track at front not the rear.. Need to know that ET though to know what size you should run.

Or you'll end up with a car that's very stable in a straight line, but, BUT, just won't, WON'T, WON'T (tree approaching!) turn in...............

Is the front track not wider than the rear already?

Misfire appears to be a combination of MAP sensor and Lambda, changed MAP but not had chance to change Lambda yet.

Fitted new Strongflex bushes into new gearbox mount, got the engine side as well but not rear gearbox. Keeping standard for that one!


And Spax kit arrived, woohoo!


So Spax kit and polybushed wishbones will hopefully be fitted this weekend if I have time:


Can't wait to get Spax kit on, whilst it will be stiff it will be much nicer than what's on there now!

Oh, and now I'm broke!!!

re: My '93 1.4 16v Cinquecento

yes the track is wider standard, but even a stock cinq sporting should have 3mm spacers on front and nothing at the rear... By fitting what you said the rear would be wider.

Anyhow, messing with the track width does funny things, i'm not gonna be a killjoy and say don't use them for anything other than ET correction but just be warned it massively effects handling characteristics changing it.

And many shiny parts to go on, don't you just love it when you spot the postman and know he has new shiny car parts for you

re: My '93 1.4 16v Cinquecento

One trick you can do (if fitting rear disks) is get away with further narrowing the track at the rear. Thus, running 35 et wheels, use a 10mm spacer at the front, nothing at the rear. You can't quite get away with this if running rear drums (need 3mm spacers).

re: My '93 1.4 16v Cinquecento

Update time!

Got Spax kit fitted:


Old vs new!


Fitted a splitter from a Fabia, 10 from dealer.


Wishbones fitted


Engine mounts:




Bye bye old one!


Hello new one! Also went with brand new standard one for the rear, no polybush.


Fitted some new speakers, they were cheap and they're not amazing by most people's standards but they are 100% better than what was in there!


Fitted my trusty Alpine as well, been in nearly every car I've owned!


Exhaust fell off now has standard rear and middle. Will be making custom soon.


This is how she looks now, notice the dents in the door where the wind blew the wheelie bin in to it. Not happy!


Is a Spax 60/40 kit but I've swapped the rear springs for FKs that are more like a 50mm drop. Spax was just too high at the rear.

1.6 Bravo throttle body has come off, was leaking around the idle control valve. I can't work out how to get it out with breaking it, it's pushed in rather than bolted on like the 1.2 TB. With the 1.2 TB back on and the standard exhaust it feels noticeably slower, have to sort soon!!

Also, it managed to chew up the crank sensor wire which was causing the misfire!

We've just put deposit on a 100HP as a daily runner so my Cinq will be spending less time on the road so few more upgrades soonish (hopefully including 1.4 16v )

re: My '93 1.4 16v Cinquecento

I hope those are Seicento Spax's. On your old car which you sold to Donna who then sold it to me (it became Blue2 -- down for an MR2 engine) -- the Cinq spec Spaxes managed to crack the B pillar!

No-one ever told me it had been down a drag strip!
