A friend of mine brought my attention to this device. They list them as being available for Fiat.
Anybody have any experience (good or bad) with them?
I should be taking delivery of my Abarth this week and plan on doing my own oil changes. I am hoping the one with the nipple will fit so I can attach a tube to run the old oil out.

I bookmarked that last site last week. Great mines right.

Looks to be legit especially if they're offering a limited life time warranty that covers damage to your engine if the plug does fail.

I went ahead and ordered one for my '92 Accord to test out.

That's pretty slick! Everytime I change my oil I, 1: get covered with oil and burn myself. 2: drop the plug into the pan and have to reach in the hot oil to get it out. Never fails! For +-30 bucks, seems like a great investment.

I've used them on our Explorer SportTrac and Suzuki Vitara. They both work/worked flawlessly for 8+ years.

I've used this on my Lotus Elise for many years and not one issue. I am going to get one for this vehicle as well. Anyone know which particular model number is the one for the Fiat?

Got one on our HHR.
Works well but kinda slow draining the oil ...

True, cause the opening is smaller due to the added mechanism. Wasn't too bad for me, since I would let the oil drain and then take care of other stuff and come back.
