    My 2013 fiat 500 pop

    This is my new to me 2013 Fiat 500 pop. When I originally bought this car all I was after was a cheap car that got good gas mileage yet still looked cool. Little did I know that this car has so much more to offer than that. Man this car is fun to drive.

    Now for my questions to the experts, were these 16" wheels an option on the pop or did someone buy and swap? Also the rear spoiler, same question?

    I'm definitely no expert but at first glance you could have fooled me- I thought it was a Sport (I have a '13) and have the same wheels and spoiler. The giveaway for me was the lack of the rocker panel skirts. Afaik the '13 Pop's came from the factory with 15" steel wheels (the optional alloys were 15" as well iirc) and a smaller spoiler (manual trans.) or no spoiler (automatic trans) .... could be the items on your car are dealer or previous owner installed. Sports also had firmer spring rates, much more heavily bolstered driver and front passenger seats, red painted brake calipers and iirc, different manual tranny ratios for a little bit better acceleration.

    Welcome to the forum and congrats on your car ... it's about as much fun as you can have on four wheels unless it's an Abarth.

    Welcome to the forum and I am glad you enjoy your car so much.

    The rims look like Sport wheels (I had a Sport) but I don't really know for sure what options were/are available for the Pop models. There was a revision to the front air dam and spoiler around 14 or 15 so I don't recall the specifics on that one for the Pop models either. So basically I'm of no real help here I guess.

    Those are Sport wheels. The rear spoiler looks like the standard MANUAL transmission Pop spoiler.
