    Nice Spider. They are so much fun on the twisties, especially with a few tweaks.

    Probably not a lot - If anything I've already pulled the trigger on more weight (17x8's with Federal 595RS-R tires). I'll be getting rid of the heavier stock exhaust and replacing it with straight pipe for the same sounds as my Abarth made.
