    General Motoring Discussion
    Well after only 6 months of Spider ownership its been part ex'd for a little beast of an Abarth 500. The Spider is very nice, but its just not worked as Mandy's daily driver after coming from the MiTo. So we've done a deal on a Red 61 place Abarth 500 with Leather, Esseesee kit, 695 Tributo...

    Hi all. Apologies if this is in the wrong section, if so please move/remove. I'm looking for a Fiat Stil Abarth if anyone is selling one or knows someone who's moving one on. Ideally the nearer to me the better (South Yorkshire), but I am prepared to travel for the right car. Any help...

  7. Abarth 500 SS vs MiTo QV Sport

    South Africa
    Okay so recently my sister asked if we can swop cars for a few days as she wants to drive the Abarth a bit... I agreed... The Abarth's ride is loud (thanks to the Monza), hard thanks to the Koni's and coils but it is so much fun! Its a blast to drive. It honestly feels like you driving an...

  10. FGASA sales in SA (Alfa, FIAT and Abarth)

    South Africa
    Okay so it started out as a Giulietta sales thread then morphed into a thread tracking Abarth and FIAT too.. Think we should start a new thread that keeps track of FGASA's Italian car sales. In March 2013 sales looked like this: (Total of 403 cars sold in March 2013) ABARTH 16 ALFA ROMEO 58...

  12. Zeff: Abarth manual gearbox

    South Africa
    Zeff or other Abarth owners.. Has the Abarth's gearbox given you any issues? I have been struggling my @ss off the last two weeks to get the car into reverse and 1st gear.. If you drop it to 2nd and then into 1st it goes in ok (similar to Alfa gearboxes) but getting the car into reverse is a...

We were neck and neck and he belted it.. I gave it all too.. We were neck and neck when we had to stop. Next set of...
  16. Abarth Punto Evo essesse

    General Motoring Discussion
    The kind folk at Lipscomb have lent me a Punto and it is a hot hatch . It's not as fat as it seems with its blown-effect exhaust . The best feature ? Either their version of DNA or the lack of a beep when you lock it. Such fun!

    General Motoring Discussion
    What a growly little monster it is on full throttle! :thumbs: In a traffic queue yesterday on the dual carriage way waiting to join j13 of the M25, I could hear a big bear of a growl coming toward me.
