Exclamation New 100hp owner

Iv had a Multijet sporting for the last 18 months as a little work donkey and its stood up to a real tough life, its served me so well but for the last year iv stitched it back together as bits here and there has deteriorated. Yesterday the breaks failed and although i knew i could fix it i decided it was time for a change, expecting to get another multijet i went a little off topic and came home with a lovely Black 100hp.
Only had it 24 hours but im already in love!
Its a 2007 Black with the pandemonium pack
72k on the clocks with history to prove it and part service history but after a full check it seems to have been reasonably well looked after and serviced.
I was skeptical about all the Abarth stickers over the original fiat ones and the aftermarket back box, but after i new it was sound everywhere else i decided i liked all the other little bits even the window rain deflectors i was also supposed to find a full brand new set of rain sport tires all round.
Im not sure the timing belt has been done but there is a blue pen mark on the cover so i shall have to take it off and see what condition its in.
Iv already had a look at bits for it and am quite tempted with a set of the black projector headlights with DRLs (not to everyone's taste i know) and a strut brace, also ill probably make a custom air filter kit up as the standard air box looks somewhat designed for NVH purposes and not drivability.

Re: New 100hp owner

Out of interest, what makes you think it has the Pandemonium pack?

Re: New 100hp owner

I was going to view this and buy it, but was put off by some of the mods. But it looked like a great motor.

They had it up for £2k.

Congrats and I hope it serves you well...

Re: New 100hp owner

Thanks HannsG,

I know what you mean, i was a little unsure but after checking over every thing else the mods began to grow on me.

So far so good, always a risk buying a second hand car but so far this little one seems grand.

Really enjoying it, but missing the MPG of the Multijet

It was advertised with it, but im unclear as to what the pack actually included theirs so many different opinions of what it did include.

Either way im happy with it, although will be upgrading the head lights to a set of Black Devil Eye projectors.

Whilst there are differing opinions, the very least it should include are:

- Silver/Chrome door mirror caps
- Red pinstrip along sides
- Red Brake Calipers

At some point, this also included a darker wheels (earlier models, possibly).


Completely Standard 100HP features are:

- Blue & Me bluetooth
- Double DIN CD Stereo with optional Aux Input (with lead accessory)
- Steering Wheel controls for the above
- 6 Speed Gearbox
- Cloth "sport" seats
- Tinted rear windows (rear windows, quarters and tailgate)
- Spoiler
- Bodykit

There were individual options to add side airbags, a 'skydome' sunroof, traction control and 6 speaker audio.



It's quite common to see previous owners have added 'Abarth' badges and stickers, aftermarket exhausts, including a twin-exit, different wheels etc, but none of them left the factory that way.


I saw quite a number that claimed to be 'Abarth' or 'with Abarth kit' or 'Pandemonium' or 'Sports pack', but they were just standard 100HPs that had been fiddled with and stickered up.

Re: New 100hp owner

Thanks for the info,
Probably doesn't have the pack then, but has other bits on that are growing on me.
Plus it runs and drives as it should

Re: New 100hp owner

Nice one. I hope it serves you as well as mine has done me. I have just passed 100K had mine 5 and a half years and its been totally reliabl, it and does 43mpg up to 50 on a long run. I saw a post on here from a chap who had just passed 200K miles and still with no real problems so I think these are a bit of a gem. Welcome to the fraternity. Have fun and do watch out for the traffic fuzz.

I was charging along a while ago, but in 4th gear and whizzed passed a camera van. Got that terrible sinking feeling and uttering expletives glanced at the speedometer. Good old Sir Percival, I was only doing 65 on the by pass. I call that a result!

Re: New 100hp owner

The pandemonium pack is nice but not really worth paying much extra for, skydome roof is worth having if you can find one.
