Great that you have your tow hitch installed on the 500L. Comes in handy for situations like this!

And it handles the trailer well. Been on the highway even.

Very Good! Much more enjoyable for sure!

There is decent power, I love our shop 500L. We have the Forge BOV Adapter plate to give the "whoosh" sound. It really makes the 500L Sporty!

Do you have any videos or anything showing what the blow off valve adapter sounds like? I am curious if it sounds cool. I got a cold air intake for a previous vehicle hoping it would sound cool, and it was meh.

Tim,

We do not have footage on hand for a 500L. I did find a video on youTube on a FIAT 500 Abarth: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imRTmfBVrrQ

A little tough to hear due to the background noise but it will give you and idea.

The sound will be very similar if not identical for the 500L.

What's the weight total you are towing (guesstimate)? They say the L is not rated for towing but I am curious to his much weight we can get away with. We would love to tow a little with our 500L

Also interested in knowing this along with wiring info for the trailer electrics. Maybe I haven't looked hard enough but I haven't seen a trailer electrics package for the 500L's.
