      That's a cool setup you have going. I've been strangely attracted to the abarths and I'm trying to avoid temptation.

      What's the comfort level like as far as the seat and overall driving position?

      Came to post this. Get some wobble bolts and BAM! You have 4x100 wheel selection.

      Still, those wheels look great on that car! I've seen that color in person and cameras just do not make it look right.

      No, I know nothing of the wizardry of wheel fitment you speak of I'm well aware of the options, but wanted them NOW

      The car is very impressive... Obviously it's no limousine, but it seats 2 as comfortably as any coupe and is very very intelligently packaged. You aren't looking at a mountain of buttons, which surprised me. They seemed to take a lot of time figuring out ways to incorporate everything. Example: to lock the doors from the inside, you simply push the door handle forward.

      Thanks for all the positive feedback...

      Phone sensor is NOT doing this car justice.

      Cute family though. I wonder how long your daughter can comfortably sit in the backseat..

      my 64 corvair has the same locking set up

      nice looking car though.

      I'm liking that color a lot more now that I'm looking at it on a computer and not a phone. It looks crazy stiff though. I had some H&R springs on my A4 with meatier tires and I had to put the stock suspension back on because it was too stiff. I bet it handles like a shifter kart though so the sacrifice is probably worth it.

      I'm imagining what that car would look like with some red accents. I think it could complement the center caps and logo on the grill. If anybody is bored and likes to Pshop, paint the door handles and side mirror caps red.

      That may be happening... I played with yellow accents (vinyl as a test) and liked it, but will probably wait until the it settles for a bit before I make any more changes.

      Yellow is interesting. I'm having a hard time picturing that though. Any plans to tint the windows? A dark tint would look awesome.

      That's what I was thinking. It's still a good looking car, but the chosen color probably works better on a huge sedan.

      car looks great! And the brown interior is sharp.

      Also, fiance is beautiful

      Where do you actually find 4x98 wheels? I went thru all the local vendors and franchisees ... I couldn't find anything at all ... is there a good site online? Same question for the coilovers ... where do you find these?

      That's what the Jetta is for. I assume this is more of an around town, fun, weekend type car.

      Your 500 is the sole reason that I got off my ass, got dressed, and went to Wendy's for a Frosty.

      Looks good. Don't know that I'd have that color every day but I like it.

      I am kind of curious about how comfortable it is for you daughter in the back seat? We use our R50 Cooper as the family ride most of the time and our 8 year old fits perfectly. We actually take long trips to San Francisco and Mammoth Mountain, both over 5 hours one way and she has never complained.

      I would think that a fairly deep yellow - canary yellow, or the web color "gold" - would match better with sand than red would. I prefer red with white or light silver.

      Looks good to me. I'd love an Abarth 500, and it would be near the top of my list if the closest dealership wasn't 2 hours+ away.
