Abarth 500 esseesse from Norway

Wird nicht angezeigt, wenn Sie angemeldet sind!

Been hanging around the forum for about a year but since I don't write german I haven't written anything. Thought I'd present my 500 esseesse. It is a 2011 model imported from Germany and I bought it new in June. Currently I have 6500 km on the clock.

2011 Abarth 500 esseesse
Campovolo Grey with red stripes
Sabelt Leather & Alcantara
Koni FSD
Xenon
Auto dipping mirror
Monza exhaust
Blue&Me Map (not working :( )
























A proud owner





The esseesse wheels will be used in the winter

As I am a detailing freak I had a massive new car prep on the car

I had to do the work in two parts as I was derailed by an almost pink old Toyota Corolla that I wanted to see if I could do something to fix. So first a good wash and some smaller jobs and the main polishing part done a week later.

I started by soaking the wheels with Bilberry wheel cleaner mixed ca 2:1 and I let this work while soaking the car with MAC Prickbort degreaser on the entire car.







Prickbort working on some insects





I was then going to prepare my foamcannon, but I discovered to my annoyance that I had forgotten to bring the cannon..

I retorted to using the soap pump on my Karcher and used some more time pressure washing and handwashing

My assistant that had camera duty decided to have a break when I washed the car so no pictures was taken at this stage.. I used Chemical Guys Citrus Wash & Gloss in my bucket with a little dash of snowfoam and a microfibre wash mitt

The car was dried off using Chemical Guys Wholly Mammoth (I just love that towel..) and the car was left with all doors open in the sun for a while.









Yes I know the esseesse sticker is in the wrong place, it has been replaced.










Eyes don't leave fingerprints



















I waxed the wheels using Swissvax Autobahn and I dressed the tyres using Swissvax Pneu.







Swissvax Autobahn on the exhaust









Assistant 2 is paying attention... from a safe distance of course ;)



I the dressed the windows using Nanolotus window sealant. First the provided cleaner is applied





Buffed off:



Then the sealant itself is sprayed on and evenly distributed using a Nano sponge.



The plan was to do a 1 step polish abd wax but a very faded red Toyota Corolla dukket came along and I was tempted to see if I coluld make it red and shiny again. This 50/50 of the roof says it all IMO...



A few days later it was time to complete

Some Bilberry.



Followed by Prickbort degreaser



Then my Abarth was foamed for the first time using Chemical Guys Citrus Wash & Gloss and a little snowfoam :)









Handwashed using the same mix in the washbucket.





Dried off using Chemical Guys Wholly Mammoth







Taped up using 3M blue masking tape









I then polished the whole car using my DAS-6 DA polisher, Swissvax Cleaner Fluid Professional and Hex Logic blue pads







The wax of choice was 2 layers of Swissvax Concorso



Some shots of the finished car:

I wanted the Telemetry, plus I love the fact that it says Abarth on the bottom. But the one I got had no map of Scandinavia and it won't pair up with the car. The car won't accept the Blue&Me MAP 5.5 upgrade. I just get a Config error message :( I guess the dealer updated the car with the wrong software and now I can't change it...

The esseesse wheels are to be used as winter wheels so they have been dressed with some Continental Winter Contacts and are safely stored :)

I don't know exactly, but somewhere around thirty I would guess. There are 2 or 3 GPAs 2 or 3 Tributos and 2 or 3 esseesse's. The rest are normal A500s

I like the original "Petals" better so they will stay on for summer. But in Norway we run winter wheels from November - April so they will be on the car almost as long :)

Another welcome from Germany. Your car looks great. I think, the last time your car was that clean, was when it was built.

Thank you, and yes I DO love it :) Saved up for 1,5 years and paid about 42000€ for it (Cars are expensive in Norway)

Thank you! I don't even think it was that clean when it rolled off the factory floor ;)

Welcome to our nice Forum. Your car is very fine!

But, as my colleagues still said, put the SS-Wheels on it and use the originals with the winter-tires!!
Will look way better, trust us!
