      Too bad the Abarth is flip-over-friendly. At least, I know the 500 is and I believe the Abarth doesn't fix that problem.

      Seriously, SCCA has banned them from Solo2 (autocross) because they roll too easily.

      I'd love to have a Mk4 but can't swing that kind of money.

      I'm a tech nerd and radar/lidar countermeasure enthusiast. I like track days, autocross, and US Highway 129. I love aural pleasure.

      They are presently not eligible because of a mathematical equation the SCCA uses to calculate the "SSF" or "Static Stability Factor". The 500 is just outside of their threshold. Word on the street is the SCCA is working on a solution to make these cars eligible. They are not rollover prone, that is internet scare-talk. I also believe a moderate drop with a set of coilovers recalculates what is necessary to get the Abarth in eligible range.

      The threshold that limits the 500 was created with the intent to eliminate SUV's and pickup's from trying to join.

      OP: I'm thinking of making the same switch, drove a black 500 Abarth last week. Did you get yours yet? How do you like it compared to the R? Feel free to PM, don't want to deter your sale thread.

      Good luck with the sale, I've always seen your car bopping around the forums and it deserves to go to a good home
