Looks like I am the first Electric on this thread! (and probably one of the few people who purchased and not leased it). This car is a specific-use car for me, commuting to work and around-town-errand car. I got the Sport version because I really liked the smoked lamps everywhere, and I got one of the few in Nero metallic paint. 82628265
However, I couldn't leave it stock, now could I? First thing I did is remove the side decals, then because the electric cars sit crazy high on very tall springs because of the extra 600lb. of weight, I decided to go lower. I got a set of the Abarth stock F&R springs from a fellow forumite for cheap (there are lots of stock spring takeoffs out there) and threw them on. Net result is that the car sits about the same as an Abarth that has been lowered 1 1/2-2". Here it is currently:8263

Very aggressive look for an E. :) It's nice to see one lowered!

I got into a 500e mood today and started browsing the threads for anyone who owns one. Looks great and hope the car is still running well for ya.
