Finally picked up Abarth ( 56k beware some pics )

Finally picked up my Abarth yesterday, I still have one of these on my face :D

Outside it doesnt look much different to my Dynamic apart from the rear spoiler and larger alloys... damm those tires are big, inside thats a little different as you will notice it has the metallic inserts around the vents and center console.. neat touch my friend Julies when she saw it last night liked that touch ( similar to her C3 ).. the white dials I really like, you gain Dual Climate control better seats, they just seem to grip more at your sides and ass. One thing when the dealer was showing me around the car is there is no spare wheel, it came with the FIX n GO system so that theres now a neat plastic storage thingy their now.

Things missing from my previous Dynamic.. well the Ashtray but you do gain one of those neato beakers, rear arm rest and ski tunnel, locking glove box!!! , pasenger under seat storage adn the two little cubby holes in the boot by the rear suspension.

BUT THE NOISE IT MAKES..... [}:)]

A few pics for you picture junkies ;)










1.8 Dynamic, Moire Black, Side Skirts

Very nice car!

Time to invest in some lowering springs though!

Enjoy!

Somehow I knew you'd say that TC ;)


James.... nothing its just a siler panel under the climate control... your ashtry is the black beaker in the cupholder at front! ( I dont some so it doesnt bother me, ned to find somewhere to put my loose change now tho )

Out of factory the sideskirts dont get abarth logos, but if you buy them as an addon then yes as they are part of the abarth body kit range.

Dunno for me having no logo there looks cleaner....

2.4 Abarth ( Manual ) Black ... nothing else to say really.

I think the Abarth should have come with the full Abarth kit as standard, so as to set it apart a little more, a bit contradictory really having an Abarth kit which isn't fitted to the Abarth:( Is the kit on the factory options list now? or does it need to be retro fitted even to a new car?

I fancy putting skirts and maybe the full kit on mine, as well as maybe getting a remap and 17's , but maybe if the kit is available as a factory extra I would be better off putting the cash I would spend towards a new car when the JTD 140 comes out[?]

It is the full standard body kit, to be honest I didnt want to in your face look.


Nope the Brio Abarth kit is not on the factory options list sadly as I would have liked the new front bumper kit.......but

YES you can get the sideskirts like mine as a factory fit option BUT only on the 3d Dynamic ( it comes standard on the Active Sport ) plus you get as standard the rear spoiler so all you would have to add is the uprated alloys... the only thing you wont get is the body coloured side strips unless you get the 5d Active/Dynamic.

the full abarth kit is in Brio on page 19 around 800 to buy then add painting and fitting.

mmmmm black. A killer to keep clean (I know from experience) but when it's clean it's the best looking colour out there IMHO.

Car looks great, mate.

My bro-in-law has a 1.9 JTD Stilo, and it was coz of him that prompted me to buy my motor [6 kids in Stilo plus driver not an option, not all mine before you say anything].

Does seem mad that Abarth kit not standard; and maybe lowering would be an option, but overall very impressive.

Fiat Ulysse 2.2JTD Eleganza, 53 plate, with options :D Angel tuned ;) Photos and avatar still to be sorted - there is always tomorrow
