Just drove her home from the dealer. Here's a pic whilst still on the showroom floor: (A crappy pic, but I'll take better ones when I get a good opportunity)

I've been lurking for a couple months on the forum deciding what I wanted and finally jumped in the deep end of the pool tonight. I surprised most of my friends as I'm an avid RWD fan. The Abarth's cool factor makes up for the fact that it spins the wrong wheels :). And if I get too much of a hankering for throttle induced oversteer, I can always finish up my slowly moving Porsche 924 project.

Future plans:

Wheels + Tire upgrade (Something 16" or 17" in a 3 piece wheel)
Koni Yellows all around (when available)
Neu-F Springs
A killer stereo setup (Maybe a Pioneer Appradio3 + JBL MS-8)
Short throw shifter & heavier shift knob (maybe Neu-F short throw & Cravenspeed knob)
Cold air intake of some sort

The rest will be decided based on my driving experience. Anyway, Cheers!

Welcome aboard. Looks good.

Keep it clean, and the shiny side up.

In this car, FWD not too bad, if your going off the cliff, just hit the gas and steer!
