  1. Guilia versus 124 Abarth

    Alfa Giulia
    Hello, I've just returned from test driving both a guilia veloce and a 124 abarth. My pcp on the Guilietta qv is up shortly. Which should I buy? I'm an alfa man normally but there is no spider I m the range currently. In terms of excitement, the abarth wins, might also be cheaper to run as well...
  2. Selenia Abarth instead of StAR

    Alfa MiTo
    Hello, a few months ago I've bought a used MultiAir non-turbo MiTo with 78k km on the clock. The previous owner used Castrol 5W-30 oil in it. After buying the car and visiting my local mechanic he change the oil etc. and again used Castrol EGDE 5W-30 Long Life as that's what was written on the...
  3. Fiat 500 Abarth (595) or Mini Cooper S (JCW)

    General Motoring Discussion
    The missus needs replacement city car for her Smart Roadster as needs back seats. What would you go for out of the Fiat 500 Abarth (595) or Mini Cooper S (JCW) or she may just get a newer Cooper S without the JCW upgrades? I'm looking forward to test driving them both to be honest, I have driven...
  4. Abarth 124 Spider pricing

    South Africa
    Has anyone seen the Abarth 124 Spider pricing? R649 900 seems a bit steep! Especially when the most expensive MX5 on which it's based is over R200k cheaper. It's a nice car but it's not R650k nice. I realise it's faster than the MX5 but not enough to justify a R200k+ price difference.
  5. MiTo QV- Fiat Punto Evo Abarth 18's

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi guys. Has anyone done this before and is it straight fitment or will I have to use wobble bolts and the like? I currently have the QV 17's as mine is a 2010 and love the abarth rim. Anybody know if it will hopefully be a straight fit?

    Revealed at Geneva but no 1750 - as expected by many, they are putting in the 1.4 170 bhp engine.

  8. Got a Brera v6 but want an Abarth C?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I'm not expecting much from this, but as I'm selling my Abarth and am after a Brera I thought it might be worth asking! I have a lovely 12 plate black over white Abarth Convertible manual, record Monza exhaust, red leather, 37K miles, FSH, and am after a red or black V6 Brera that has...

    General Motoring Discussion
    I don't think I'm alone in loving this car. This review is quite interesting. Don't worry, it has sub-titles, but the translation is a little rough in places: Love this car :cool:
  11. Abarth 500 vs Abarth Punto

    South Africa
    Got my @ss handed to me by a Abarth 500 on yesterday.. I saw it fly past me and I gave chase. Stuck around till about 180kmh and from there on the A500 just opened gaps on the Punto. Bigger badder brother had no chance to catch the lesser powered smaller brother. Was a grey Abarth 500 with...

    Alfa MiTo
    I have been looking at a suitable replacement for my GT and was looking for a mito 1.4 TB Veloce but really had trouble finding one and when i did it was sold before i even got a chance to view it. So today i purchased a Fiat Punto Abarth, same mechanics but in a different body so i would...
  13. What I hate most about my Abarth Punto Scorpione

    South Africa
    Is the heat soak. What is it with this car and heat soak. Never experienced this with any of my other cars. Is the intercooler not big enough? Does it not get enough air onto the intercooler to keep it cold? Any way to fix this other than MP's method?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Not sure if this is the correct board but I thought you guys would like it :D Besides moneypit #1 (a.k.a. the 156) I made the mistake to take on another Italian... An Autobianchi A112 Abarth, which has been used for quite a few years as a trackcar. It has also participated in the Abarth Coppa...
  15. Abarth Seats for Mito?

    Alfa MiTo
    Another crazy idea that popped into my head, might as well ask the question to get rid of it! Would the seats from an Abarth 500 fit a Mito?
  16. I just want my QV to sound like an Abarth 500!!

    Alfa MiTo
    To my ears, perfection! So, anybody know if it would be at all possible to fit an Abarth exhaust to my MQV and get the same sound? Take a bit of welding, but why not right? Sent from Free App
  17. Picking up a Giulietta tomorrow in exchange for my Abarth

    Alfa Giulietta
    So..... I'm picking up an 11' plate Giulietta Cloverleaf in 8c Red tomorrow. Although I am excited I am also gutted to be trading in my 12' plate Abarth 500. I love my car so much but after needing more room and of course more power I decided on the Cloverleaf. I am so hoping I fall in love with...
  18. Saying Goodbye to the Abarth and Hello to the Alfa

    Introduce Yourself
    Hey all, Am picking up an '11 plate on Saturday and trading in my Fiat 500 Abarth. Love the little Abarth but needed a bigger and more grown up car, of course with more power. Have gone for a Giulietta Cloverleaf in 8C Red. Sad to say Goodbye but I'm sure that will change once I drive off in the...
  19. Red 4C will be at Mccarthy Wonderboom Alfa, FIAT, Abarth

    South Africa
    This weekend.. For those who missed it at Chatz or would like to see it again, here is your chance. From my understanding there will be food and refreshments too (as was the case at Chatz). Most of the guys there are Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge guys, so perhaps an opportunity to show them just how...
