Smile Have a new GP, Anybody got any questions?

So i've noticed theres a lot of questions about the Evo and im picking up my GP today. As there aren't loads on the road i thought it would be good to just say this...

If you have any questions, ASK! I (will) have the car and should be able to comprehensively answer any questions about how it drives, how it looks and how it feels etc.

I found myself looking around this forum for answers and thought if it could centrally answer some on this thread it would help any others considering purchasing the Evo, particularly the GP Model.

Mine is a 1.4 GP 5dr in Easy Lsietening White, red and grey interior, sat nav, mats and alarm (not sure why an alarm isn't standard but costs about £170). From Thames Fiat who have been really helpful throughout and had the car ready in two weeks.

Re: Have a new GP, Anybody got any questions?

Id be interested to know about the alarm?! Im sure ive read a Thatcham Cat /12 was included (As with most other cars).... I hope so!!
And thanks for offering your support/assistance, I agree there is no such post

FOUND IT!! "It's impressive that Fiat includes its full array of safety options with every trim. A Thatcham Category One alarm and immobiliser is fitted"

Old cached copy of Channel 4 Review?!

Immobiliser…. Yes
Alarm…. No

I personally found that when I was looking about at cars very few had “Alarms” fitted as standard (crazy in my opinion!) but all have immobilisers.
Must just be a way to squeeze an extra couple of hundred out of customers.
Thanks IronHorse thanked for this post

Re: Have a new GP, Anybody got any questions?

picked it up earlier and it looks very tidy. Loving the voice control for changing songs and browsing by artist. Adaptive fog lights coming on when you turn is also an awesome feature, very useful. The alarm i had fitted is also good after your comments above. Cost £170, got two motion sensors on the two drivers pillars one on the near side and the other on the offside. not liking the blue LED which was retrofit with the alarm by the gearstick but it makes it clear that the car has an alarm i suppose. Had a few problems with my HTC Hero staying connected to the Blue and Me but might just be me, sure il find out if i keep using it.

Re: Have a new GP, Anybody got any questions?

Take a look at the Blue And Me section, Im sure you`ll see its probably not you! Seems to be a real hit and miss system at times

Be interested to see pics of the alarm system, If you would be so kind?
