    Arrow Noob 2017 Abarth

    Holy smokes... What a sweet car!

    Just got it last week and am super happy.

    Was looking through posts on here so decided to register!

    In the process of ordering some winter wheels from 500madness.

    Been pondering mods, but don't know if I can bring myself around to doing it to a brand new car.

    Might wait a few thousand miles.

    Welcome. Don't feel pressure to mod. The car is great platform for tuning but it's pre-modded by Abarth, your set to go. I always think it's a good idea to get to know a car before you mod anyways. Then you know what you love and what you dislike about the car and truly appreciate any changes you make. Enjoy!

    Hey Ando and Jason.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Decided the only mods I'm going to do for now will be a K&N air filter and get some steelie 16" rims made for a Fiat 500 Pop.

    Ray at Madness is helping me with the rims.

    Next task is finding some cheap snow skins in size 185/55r16.

    Hey Robert.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    See in your signature you mention Tidewater Sports Car Club.

    I went to Old Dominion University down in Norfolk.

    Hey SouthernRoad.

    I'm in shock how much aftermarket stuff there is for this car.

    Now I am looking at strut tower braces and the RRM chassis bracing.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    I lived in Virginia Beach for the last 3 years and just took a new job on Long Island. Great area down there, TSCC was a lot of fun to drive with too. In my previous job I did some work with one of the professors at Old Dominion too.

    Very cool. After I left the Virginia Beach area I went to Japan for a couple years then moved back up to Northern Virginia.
