So....

An update- the car needed new front tyres after 17,000 miles so bought a set of bridgestones.
I also decided to bling up my brakes behind the Alfa wheels with ebc discs and new mopar pads.

As the discs were black coated, I took the car for a wee drive to get all the black **** off them.

I did however find out that for some reason, Fiat have factory fitted 2.0 4x4 multijet 305mm discs and calipers to my 1.6 multijet.
I originally ordered the discs for a 1.6 but when they arrived the fronts were far too small.
When I went into work I looked on eper and right enough my car is listed with 305mm discs but every other 500, we have at work have the smaller 281mm discs.
Luckily the seller changed them no problem and I technically have a free big brake upgrade.

Re: My venezia blue cross plus

Looks ok, I would have left the lights though, the boot handle kind of blends in with the rear bumper, nice one on the discs by the way, have you noticed many cars come in with crappy surfaces on the rear discs, almost kind of scored, mine don't look great after only 15000 miles, the fronts look a nice silver color,

Re: My venezia blue cross plus

Mine had an intermittent fade on one of the dials. Replaced under warranty. Unfortunately the plastics on the new one are starting to bubble up. Awaiting another new one on warranty.

Do you think it would be a warranty issue then if they were scored and pitted badly after 15000 miles and 18 months?

Re: My venezia blue cross plus

I doubt they would honour that under warranty as itís classed as wear and tear, but 18 months isnít a long time.

Just take it in and ask

Re: My venezia blue cross plus

Just ordered a brand new 595 abarth turismo to replace the 500x as I got a staff deal on it.

As much as I love the 500x, itís not being used a lot as I walk to work and when I do use it, it throws up airbag errors and handbrake errors etc, as I do so little mileage and the car doesnít get enough time to charge.

So back to a petrol for me, and my wife and I both lived my old abarth, and her fiesta is big enough for what we need.

Anyone want to buy a mint set of Alfa horseshoe alloys?

Smile Re: My venezia blue cross plus

I've got 500X & Abarth 595. Can't really justify having both so I'm forced to take the Abarth out for runs at the weekend

Re: My venezia blue cross plus

Well I've got new and old. New = 500X and Old = Strada Abarth 130TC.

I wonder if my 500X will still be on the road when it is 31 years old?
