    I wouldn't let the seats turn you off the Abarth. There are probably a bunch of people with non-Abarths (like me with an '18 Cabrio Turbo) that are looking to swap the basic 500 seat for the Abarth ones. Or if you find another set, past sales I've seen for Abarth seats go quickly.

    Driving to a wrecking yard tomorrow for the basic seats. Got a soft deal set with the dealer.

    looks like I will be joining the club soon.

    As far as basic seats, the Sport seats are 100% better than the Pop seats in comfort. They're the best seats of all the 500 in the US IMHO. The Pop seats are more utilitarian. Sport has more padding, better support, better quality AND big enough for wide loads. The 2015+ Sport seats are better than the 2012-2013 Sport seats also, but you have to match year model as 2012-2013 has different airbag wiring. Not sure which side of the coin 2014 falls on.

    I love my 2012 sport seats. How are the 2015 sports different? The seats, in the Lounge, seem much better.

    We took our Honda Accord over to have basic maintance done, at the dealership. One of my daughter went with us in the 500, to pick up the Honda after they were finished. She was sitting in the back seat of the 500. First time, in 8 years. My wife went in to the dealership, pickup her Accord. My daughter moved to the front passenger side of the 500 sport. She said the back seat was more comfortable, then the front sport seat. I’ve notice the same thing riding in that seat too. Go figure.

    All the seats, are really miserable, in the 500 sport. Compared to our Accord Touring. The Accord was $35k, while the 500 was $20K.

    I dunno, the leather seats in the Abarth fit me perfectly. I'm 6'. My wife and I both thought they were great for long distance cruising too.

    I haven't found my 2012 Abarth to need anything other that normal stuff. Oil changes. One set of front brake pads. And a couple of bulbs (one headlight, one DRL).

    And I did not realize the 32K mile spark plug change. Mine are at 74K and the car runs fine.

    You should be on your 3rd set of plugs, by now. Your car would run, even better.
