The order books are open for the 2018 Fiat 124 Spider. The 2018 model year brings new colors and the ability to order individual option groups instead of the large combined packages of last year.For example, last year if you just wanted to get the Navigation and Sound Group w/SiriusXM, you were required to take the Premium Package that consisted of the Visibility Group, and the Comfort and

*sigh* when will we get REAL colors?!
I'm gonna blame Mazda here.
Yeah, the X gets waaaaay more colors even!
I'd like to see a "real" increase in power for the Abarth 124, I mean our cars went from 100 base to 160 and maybe it can't be that much I don't think 200 hp is too much to ask for when stepping up the a special model?

Hey Mr. Fiat500USA do you know when they will add the abarth badge or the euro wheel. Also So can you just buy bose Speakers? I was hoping that if can be just like I bought my Fiat 500. Or could they just have bose as standard equipment.
The beauty is in the details though.
For my Corvette, and then later my Fiat 500 Turbo, there were a lot of little fixes here and there done between model years after the launch year. Launch years tend to be problematic, and on my 2013 Fiat 500 Turbo for example, apparently there was an issue with the window trim (always squeaks) that was fixed for 2014, but of course they won't advertise such a fix. The fact that ECU upgrades from Euro-Tuning for example were only available for 2013 and not 2014 until recently, tells me there were probably all kinds of tweaks to the ECU and all around the vehicle. For my Vette, you got a different clutch and all kinds of little tweaks that were not advertised model year changes, but helped in reliability and fit and finish and the like, based on customer feedback for most common complaints and warranty problems.
So that is one reason I'm strongly considering waiting for a 2018, as they may have ironed out some of the bugs... thoughts?
