My little 500c was repurchased by Chrysler, for "unresolvable mechanical issues."

Given that Fiat was so helpful and purchased the car outright at full price, I'm giving the brand another go.

This go around, I'm thinking Abarth. Anyone have leads on a low miles Abarth Cabrio?

Ideal car would be:

White exterior
Red leather interior
White alloy wheels
No navi

I'm in Los Angeles.

Thanks!

Good for you! Please give details as to what was wrong with the initial car.

Great to hear they treated you right and that you are going to give them a second chance.
The Abarth is a lot of fun! Hopefully you can find what you want.

You can go to the FIAT website and find a dealer. If this link works, it shows FIAT dealers in the LA area. Then check to see if they have what you want.

Closest I could find in a jiffy is a white hatch, with red, no white wheels:

I went through Car Gurus: http://www.cargurus.com

That site also gives you an idea on whether or not the price is good.

There's a white hatch with red, white wheels, in Vegas

ONE convertible found, triple black, San Diego (Kearny Mesa):

Totally stealth, no stripes/mirror covers are black.

Edit: It also has some kind of Clarion aftermarket stereo thing happening, probably with NAV, maybe you've seen it already?

There are 4 white Abarths on Carmax, but none with cabriolet. One had a sun roof:

I think Andree is the fastest one on here for finding exactly what you are looking for. Why Fiat hasn't contacted you for internet sales is beyond me... I just had to comment. Nice work as always Andree.

I read half way through the thread and thought about commenting that Andree would be here shortly with a list for you, but she beat me to it! :)

Thanks guys--

Spent the day at Madness in Signal Hill, CA.
Was impressed with their work.

May customize an Abarth with touches similar to the new '57 Lounge special edition:http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1088455_2014-fiat-500-1957-edition-to-debut-at-l-a-auto-show#src=10065

Re: BuyBack-- Once I requested the car be repurchased, they were quite professional and pleasant to deal with.

Just make sure to compare prices and reviews between all the great vendors we have before purchasing any add-ons for your Abarth!
