Abarth 124 / Chip in Wrap.
« on: December 29, 2019, 12:28:00 PM »
Hi all, just washed the Spider and im afraid its a write off! There is a 2mm chip on the front edge of the bonnet. My car is white with the black bonnet. Can this be repaired or am I looking for a new car in 2020. Please help. Lee.

General Chat / Tuning box for sale.
« on: October 20, 2018, 09:43:06 AM »
Hi all. I have a TMC motorsport tuning box for sale. I bought it from this site in January and never fitted it. It is brand new in the box. It is the 3 channel version so quite difficult to fit to the 124. Easy enough on a 500 though. I am asking 200. (cost me 300). Anyone interested please PM me. Cheers. Lee.

Abarth 124 / Puncture.
« on: July 11, 2018, 08:49:12 PM »
Got home from work Monday, was informed by my son the tyre pressure light was on in the Spider, of course he didn't check the tyres, why would you when you can just put it in the garage?  Got it out N/S rear flat as f@ck. Used a tin of tyre weld, rather than the 50 Abarth option. Watched it all piss out of the 5mm split in middle of the tread. Now what do I do? Phoned the Abarth number on the sun visor. They arranged to collect it the following day but can only take it to a main dealer. They took 2 days to order and fit a new tyre, 140. only 40 more expensive than everyone else! I am older than most owners on here and remember a thing called a spare tyre, what a genius idea! At least I had options then rather than be held to ransom by main dealers!

Abarth 124 / Seat wear.
« on: May 15, 2018, 07:07:57 PM »
After just 7 months and 4000 miles the bolster of the drivers seat has wear marks on it. Anyone else had this? Checked out an American owners site and their dealers are replacing the seat. I would be surprised if any UK dealer would be as obliging.

Abarth Punto Evo / Multi Air tuning potential.
« on: January 19, 2018, 11:52:16 AM »
Hi all, just traded my 595 comp for a 124 spider, I appreciate this is the Punto page but as only 6 spiders have been sold ever, no one has any advice on tuning and the 500 fraternity seem reluctant as the engine is a T jet in theirs. The 124 comes with the Multi air 170 bhp engine form the Punto and Mito, still not sure what the difference is between that and the tjet, anyway, I want a bit more of a kick from the Spider so I thought I would try my luck on here. I have fitted an oval box induction kit and that has helped but was wondering what other simple mods are available, remapping, actuators etc.. What would realistic gains be. Thanks in advance. Lee.

Abarth 124 / Dash Cam.
« on: January 11, 2018, 10:04:30 PM »
I am going to have to invest in a dash cam due to the amount of cretins on the road. How easy is it to hide all the wires? Handy having the power supply in the footwell so it looks like the only tricky bit is the nearside  screen pillar cover. Has anyone fitted one? Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Abarth 124 / Whats the differencs?
« on: December 01, 2017, 09:53:10 PM »
OK what's the difference between a T Jet and a Multi Air engine? Just traded a 595 comp for a 124 spider and the performance couldn't be more different. The 595 feels more  urgent and faster despite being slightly slower in a drag race. Surely there cant be that much difference in the same 1.4 engine?

Abarth 124 / Cleaning.

Abarth 124 / Temp Gauge.
« on: October 09, 2017, 07:45:47 PM »
Hi all, got my 124 Friday and all seems well except for the temp gauge. It only goes up to 100 degrees, the first line. I would guess it should go nearer the middle, 110. The heater is scorchio so I assume the gauge is at fault.
