Glad you got white. It's a little less ''boy-racer'' than the black or red.
I got my Abarth about a week ago, haven't had much time to post about it because its been a fairly busy week. So far its been a ton of fun to drive, and it does decent on fairly long highway trips (El Paso to Santa Fe. Ordered it about a month and a half ago and it came in fairly quick. The seats are comfortable and the engine is much better than the one in the regular 500. I didn't care too much for the graphics or the leather seats, so i opted for the cloth seats.
I so far don't have any complaints on this car, its decent on gas and the insurance is pretty cheap , i'm actually paying less per month than i was on my 500 sport in insurance. So i hope TCL enjoys! The cars in the garage aren't mine and are my friends, i dont have any other pictures of em sorry.
I understand there is a aftermarket kit just made for the 500. Just plug and play. And since the stock housing is a projector, glare shouldn't be an issue.
Congrats on the pickup, looks great!
I really like the Abarth and stumbled upon this video in case you wanted to poison your car with Venom:
The Venom owes its lightweight and power enhancements to Magneti Marelli, Fiat’s own part supplier, similar to Mopar for Chrysler in America. Magneti Marelli’s contributions to the Abarth Venom are extensive.
First, they reduced the weight of the car by approximately 200 pounds. They accomplished this feat by incorporating carbon fiber throughout the car and using new lightweight wheels in favor of the standard wheels. In the interior, the dashboard trim and seatbacks are made from the lightweight carbon fiber. On the exterior, the hood, fascia elements, and splitter are constructed of a more durable version of carbon fiber.
On the performance side, Mopar and Marelli managed to increase the Abarth’s horsepower by 25-percent, upping it from 160 to 200 HP. They accomplished this by adding an electronic boost controller and installing a dual-mode exhaust system that is reminiscent of the Record Monza system commonly seen in special edition Abarths like the Maserati and Ferrari Tributo.

I also think 16" wheels are the way to go for this chassis.

Nice, congrats! They're growing on me though I know very little about them. I love small sporty cars so anything to further the segment is okay with me. Saw my first one in person a couple days ago pulled over on the highway by a statey. Guess that must mean they get up and go pretty good!
