Went to get both side skirts fixed on my 14 Sport today and got a 500 Turbo.
I'm in LOVE!!!
This car has some balls when on th off ramps and freeway!
Roso red and standard rims (my Sport has the upgraded spokes which I love)!
Easily could get into some serious speeding tickets with this thing!
Glad it's not in my Bianco pearls white or I would buy it in a heartbeat!
But I have to much sentimental attachment to my Sport as my partner handpicked it for me--it's still makes me happy every time I hop into it!
Such a fun little car.
But now I understand you Abarth/Turbo owners and why your so passionate about your fiats!

Congrads...I'm guessing you're a 2 Fiat family now?

Unfortunately guys I'm just borrowing it-

---can't afford the extra $$$ for an upgrade.
But I will be upgrading years from now if fiat is still around!
I've gotta have something to dream about!

I went in for a Pop and drove off in a Turbo. It's always on SPORT mode.

Is there any other mode?

This sounds stupid- but I thought it would have an extra gauge for the Turbo?
Or is that with the older instrument cluster?
Or is it only on Abarth that have that?

And yes I did love Sport mode��

Every car that is equipped with a turbo should come with a boost gauge. Sadly, the 500T does not. It comes standard on the Abarth. There are after market gauges that are pretty easy to install.

Haha sounds like a 500T is definitely in your future my friend! As Pizzamann95 stated you can definitely run an external boost gauge on that car without a problem. I did so on mine only a few months after purchasing the car plus I went with a much more accurate mechanical solution. But yes, I couldn't agree more than any turbo car should always come with a gauge!

Glad you've been enjoying the car and Happy Holidays from MADNESS Autoworks! xyxwave
