    Wiring & more wiring. Cleaning up the looms that interface with the fuse/relaybox. had to separate & add connectors for all the add-ons (central lock, keyless entry, etc.,) that I had not taken care to route following the harnesses - the end result was it was unwieldy to drop & access the fuse/relay panel. Also, triggered my OCD (such as it is) just looking at it. Can only move it around so much, as excessive tidying makes it hard to flex the entire mess back up into its resting place up under the dash. Using smaller connector housings (TE JPT found on 90's Volvos) that are just easier to use & take less space than the old 6.3mm TE/AMP Faston (spade terminals) setup.
    Also added a fused 30 supply junction (from Volvo 240 series) for some of the mods such as power window feeds that offload the factory circuitry & improve performance.

    Three hundred issues of Auto Italia – that’s the happy landmark we’re celebrating this month with a bumper issue that includes our favourite ever Ferrari features and each of our writers’ personal highlights over 25 years. Our main story this month is a mega-Maserati group test of the best modern coupes, from Ghibli Cup to 3200 Assetto Corsa and GranSport MC Victory to GranTurismo MC Stradale. We also test Maserati’s latest 202mph Trofeo V8 saloons. Alfa fans will delight in our road test of a modified 156 GTA SW estate – perhaps the best in Britain – as well as our reminiscences of Alfa Romeo racing. Speaking of racing, our Fiat 128 racer cover car is fully track-tested, while we also have full reports from the latest classic events. Oh, and there are stories on two real rarities: a Fiat 850 Spiagetta beach car and the Humberstone TTS, a British-built Alfasud-based coupe from the 1970s.

    Hi, thank you in advance

    I own a 2012 Fiat 500 sport which has met it's match recently... the rain. I have noticed all the footwells and both drivers side seats are soaking wet, yet the boot and parcel shelf are dry. The windows are always full of moisture on the inside so an absolute nightmare to clear and keep clear.

    I'm not sure where to start looking for the cause? Does anyone have any tips please? Where to look, what to look for, how to solve it? I have asthma and a young child so the cold, wet and mouldy environment isn't ideal for us.

    A very rare find of mine a Fiat 500 Giardiniera.
    The car was restored a few years ago which included: full engine rebuild, interior, rewire, bodywork/chassis and paint job. Despite it being an older restoration, it still presents very well and turns heads absolutely everywhere.
    Drive 8/10: It runs and drives very well, pulls as it should with no issues; thoroughly enjoyable! The throttle cable is a little sticky (spare included - may be changed before sale)
    Interior 9/10: The interior is in excellent condition, with brand new wiring. It has had new seat covers, door cards and rubber mats. Sunroof is excellent.
    Exterior 8/10: Having been restored a few years back it presents very well, with no rust to be found anywhere and only a few 'blemishes'. The floor pans are immaculate as is the rest of the underside. The bonnet and boot are a different shade of green, so would need respraying to be perfect. The drivers and passenger door skins could do with minor repairs to the bottoms, but they're not a necessity and there are a couple of paint chips commensurate of age and use.
    Overall 8/10: A very rare and appreciating classic, a sound investment. A serious head turner, perfect for weekend trips or for advertising a business.
    Love my new accusation! Mike L

    Why are Abarth parts so stupidly expensive? I was just pricing a Clutchmasters FX-100 on Ngen Customs' site, and the Abarth price ($875) is $340 (63%) more expensive than the price for a Dart 1.4T multi-air ($535) AND for non-turbo 500s (also $535).

    This is ridiculous... and makes me wonder if it's even a different part? How is it possible that the 1.4T multi-air Dart and non-turbo 500 ostensibly use the same reasonably priced clutches, but the Abarth version needs some magic $350 add-on that's not particular to EITHER the 1.4T multi-air engine OR to other 500s?? Are we that stupid?

    Toronto Chapter member T.Larzis writes I live in Canada and want to replace my Lusso wheels to the Abarth style wheel. OEM or aftermarket in time for spring. Looking for recommendations of wheels anyone has purchased to go on the Lusso tires. Can you send me suggestions? I should be clear , black or Abarth color only. Thank You

    Hello, new here. I currently don't have a Fiat but i am leaning heavily towards getting an Abarth. So i was wondering what everyone's thoughts were on the pros and cons of a fiat abarth? I'll understand if the admins remove me from the group seeing how i don't have an Italian car.

    Member Anthony Hulbert writes just picked up this broken 2016 500 sport from a buddy. Its been broken for 2 years at least now while it was still being paid off ��*♂️Anyway. I think the 5 speed manual transmission is bugged up. Videos dont help or do much justice.
    It skips and crunches when u try to move it most times, especially in reverse. It will completely bind up in reverse and spring back forward like a pullback toy car once you push back down on the clutch pedal.
    Anyone else encounter this issue? He was just driving home one day and he lost all gears, replaced clutch master and got the pedal back but transmission doesn't function proper.
