Hi guys, I'm trying to upload my pics and hope it works. I have a 2016 Trekking Blu Venezia Collection 6 AWD. I'm from the Windy City!

This blu baby birthdate is 04/2015, so I'm wondering if this car might have missed any updates, although I have updated the Uconnect to RA2
few days ago.

All stock factory, but planning on a getting a few low-cost upgrades such as windows deflectors, decals, front windows tint, etc.

Sharp looking car! Love the color. There have been quite a few updates since the car's production date. Many times these are done when the car goes into service or when you take delivery.

Transmission enhancements and performance are the major ones. You've already did the radio one. I usually go in and get the oil changed at the dealer and ask for the latest updates.

Here are a few articles on updates I've posted in the past:

Thank you! I am still wondering why I cannot find my wheels on the official site. Is it an aftermarket ones? I just bought my car as-is from the dealer.

Thank you for information. Is there a way to find out if you have the latest updates without going to the dealership? I suspect the service department at my dealership is not helpful or resourceful at all.

Very nice looking car.

Thank you, Southernroadrunner. I noticed your signature stating the upgrades you have done for your car. One thing catches my attention: hood lift. What is that??? :P

They are the hood struts or supports I guess they really should be called. You can check them out on our various vendors websites. They work really well and support the hood on both sides

Thank you for the compliment. It's great to know a fellow Fiat forums user from the same state. Wonder if there are Midwest Fiat users gathering. :)

That's a great idea! I think there are Fiat owners near us....we should look into that, for this spring! Would be fun to meet and hang out. :)

Welcome from a fellow Windy City Fiat owner. Very sharp ride! The LED headlights look great. Where did you purchase yours from? Any issues installing them?

Spring starts around 4th of July for you folks, right? We've had 85 degrees three times in the past two weeks!

Anson, that's a good looking ride! I don't think I've seen that color around central Texas...sharp!

Welcome!! Those look like the upgraded 18's that were available. Now that 2017 info is up. It sure if they still are. They look great.

That is what's troubling me. I tried to find the same style online with no luck. I hope there would be some in abundance in case one gets damaged and it would really suck if cannot get one.

Waxing my car on a lovely afternoon weather at 71 degrees temp. However, doing 3 phases of compounding, polishing, and paste wax almost made me give up buffing those chemical toward the end!!! lol

How do you like my cat in the back of my car? LOL

I like the cat but the tail should be coming out of the gas tank! Lets here it for waxing the car in the garage (out of the sun). Nice job. I use a foot stool for the roof.

I would do that tail out of the gas tank, but knowing there will be crazy people walking by I'm afraid they would abuse its tail. LOL

Foot stool might be better, but wife's step ladder is the only thing I could find that will give me a secure foot hold. Even so, I almost fell off a few times from the ladder!!! haha

Went camping and cave exploring at Mammoth Cave, Kentucky with wifey June 6-8, 2017. It was a great experience there. You guys should give that a try at least once.
