    Opinions on used Primas?

    I'm thinking of picking up a 2012 Fiat and noticed one of these special editions for sale. Is there anything that I should look out for specifically with this version?

    Also I noticed the air filter was modified. Not sure if that's a trouble sign or pretty typical. Overly-modded could be trouble, I think.

    You could check the exhaust for upgrades. I think this video convinced a lot of people to upgrade... got the car up to 87 whp.

    That is an AFE air intake. I have the same intake on my 2017 500c.

    Yeah, you're right. Looking at the rear of the car, it's got double exhaust tips, that look like part of this Corsa kit. Although the extra air intake doesn't look like the Corsa I've seen, maybe another brand.

    Still not sure if I should purchase though! It's had quite a few owners.

    Anyways, thanks for your help! Spot on!

    If it's Road Race's Corsa exhaust, it'll look like this (install video).

    It seems like a fair price ($5888). I'd have it checked by a mechanic and take it home, if you like the car. Personally, I like that top better than the hard top or 500C.
    Leno's auctioned off at $185K.

    With that intake and exhaust you could be getting around 85 to 90 HP to the wheels... a bit better than stock.

    That’s a nice looking car. Like the dark grey color. Looked at one like that brand new, back in 2011. It has the same power sunroof as my car. It sure has lots of miles on it. Average for a 8 1/2 year old car. I always liked the red stitched seats, equipped on them. The alloy wheels have a darker shade of painted gray, then my car. Number matching car of 500 of them only produced. Plate on the dashboard. Has a after market stereo, probably speakers too, and rear trunk subwoofer.
