    No back seat? ARRGH! How did I miss that?

    Just picked up the 13 Abarth I bought a few days ago and when I got home, noticed it doesn't have the back seat. It has a nice delete kit, but will that affect the resale value when I flip it in the spring?

    You're going to flip a car in 3-4 months? What's up with that?

    It's really not that hard to get ahold of one, any 500 can be a donor. Most people don't care though

    Have you seen the resale value on your car now?

    Yes, any living being will likely make you take the hit on the missing bench.

    If it makes you feel any better my passenger door lock wasn't connected to anything for my first 6 months of ownership. XD

    He bought it used so he's not the one taking the hit...unless he paid too much. As long as it's a quality seat delete I don't see it hurting resale. If you list the seat delete in the classifieds I'm sure you'd find someone that'd love to swap your their seat for the seat delete...but think the seat delete is worth more $$.
