Morning everyone! Just thought id say hi, I've just bought myself a Stilo Abarth; i used to member a while back when i had my lovely broom yellow fiat bravo then i got a selespeed alfa 147, then i crossed over to the dark side and got a BMW 320 but with a fast approaching wedding it had to go so now im back with my Abarth!.

Right my first help question... Does anyone know where i could pick up an 'owners manual/handbook' from? The chap i bought from had never had one!? Ive had look on ebay etc but to no avail! Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks
James

I've tried ebay but no luck, they have lots of repair manuals on CD but i was looking for the handbook that should come with the car.

I have the 1.9JTD model. It goes well enough, but i get joys from the fact that i can go 500-600 miles on £45 - which is quite nice.

My engine is more then big enough for someone my age, as opposed to the 1.2's that lads my age usually drive, and its reasonabally cheap to insure.

My car looks like an abarth from the outside and is specced well enough, not sure what the major differences are on the outside.

Got it on may 29th and still enjoying it. Only problems now is the cold weather in a morning, the Stilo demists the windows fine, but isnt very good at heating the cabin - the thick jackets are out.

Only problem is, im quite tempted by a Panda 100 :eek:.
