2015 Fiat 500 Abarth Bianco 5 speed manual.
Congrats on your purchase!
Didn't take long to want to mod it!
Sophia is a beauty !
Congrats on the 124. Subscribe check. Did you get the 124 at Bob Baker Calrsbad? Was heading to San Diego this past weekend and saw a couple of car transport truck full of 124. I wanted to stop by the dealership but ran out of time.
I heard the Good-win exhaust on the new Miata via WRXREVIEWS and it sounded awesome! You could hear it from inside the car and he even did a recording of the sound from outside the car, really impressive system!
As far as that picture goes, I guess its true that when you get an Italian sports car girls jump into your arms, LOL!!
2013 500 Abarth/Nero metallic...traded in.
WOW, found some of the extra weight!
The Fiat Battery looks like a BEAST....because it is!
Once all the bracket and bucket are added (not shown here), the weight for the Fiat battery and mounting setup is over 39 pounds! Stock ND battery with the bracket and bucket is only 26 pounds.....difference of 13 pounds! All the same electronics in the car, the Fiat doesn't need so much more battery, my guess is they didn't want an extra sku and this battery is already same as used in other models like the 500. Once we get our Light Battery Kit modified to work in the Fiat we will be saving about 36 pounds on just the battery. Given that is all weight high in the nose of the car it will make a nice difference.
For comparison, ND Battery:
And our Light Battery kit, plus battery:
Fiat 124 with our Progress Springs and 17x8 Tungsten 6UL wheels with 235/40/17 Toyo R1R Tires. Even with just the springs upgraded this Fiat is pretty flat in the corners, credit to both the springs and the fact that Fiat gave it's version a bit more sway bar (rear 14mm instead of 11mm, etc).
Fits perfect, feels great, looks awesome!
