Got my Mopar cold air intake and chassis brace. Can feel the difference. Last set of photos of my vehicle with this setup and everything will be changing. I will be a featured vehicle for Manley Performance at SEMA this year so if your going keep an eye out!

Haven't had much to update until now....

My car was stolen on the 31st while my wife and I were out on a date night. We went to Boca Park here in Vegas which is like a outdoor mall and then ate dinner. We were at the mall for maybe 4 hours. When we came out my car was missing so I talked to security and then I called the police. About 45 mins after I reported it they had found my car and of course my first question "Does it look like they took anything?".....

As you can tell with the images below....they stripped the car pretty damn well. Took my front bumper, rear bumper, hood, seats (cut the wiring harnesses), doors (cut the wiring), head lights, tail lights, and my wheels. Which thankfully my wife is a bad driver and hit a clipped a curb about a week before and damaged a wheel so I gave her my wheels so I could buy new ones (was thinking CCW classics). Anyway took the insurance about a week to do the appraisal to tell me it was totaled......

Started car shopping (which was difficult because I was really torn between a few cars) but decided to get the best bang for the buck and picked up the Fiat 500T. I was going to get the Abarth but I had already ordered seats (secret ) and I had my coil overs that I have had on order finally arrive. Only difference is power but a ECM upgrade will fix that . Bought the car the following Saturday and put the coils on and transferred the short shifter monday. Following weekend a friend and very talented photographer came to town with a few of his friends and we did a photoshoot of a couple lambos and took a few of the new car.

Off to a great start (or should that be a restart?)!

Do you think the advertisement stickers on the door on your white Fiat attracted the bums that ripped you off thinking there was a goldmine of aftermarket parts for their taking?

Wondered the same. A lot of "look at me" on the old one...

Got my new seats in this weekend ...Now if I can just find out which OHM Resistors i need then i can install them. Called dealer along with a few of the big aftermarket companies for Fiats and no one knows. Nothing on forums as well......

Wow that is incredible how fast they stripped the car down.

New toy looks even better though and those seats will look hot against the grey.

I have a 500T also and if you delete the muffler it will have Abarth exhaust sound.

@07bpb- Yeah myself and the officer were going back and forth about it.

@camaro- I plan on doing down pipe, straight pipe, intake, and ecm upgrade by xmas. If everything works out right maybe a wide body with some carbon fiber goodies by next show season .

Tork Motorsports has a actual tune that is very promising, has launch control also. The dyno sheet below shows a completely stock Abarth before and after the Tork Tune. The 500T is essentially an Abarth running only 15psi peak boost in sport mode versus the Abarth's 18psi peak boost in sport mode.

Seats are pretty big lol…Come very close to touching and the passenger side bracket is bigger than the driver which results in a higher seat….Going to get them adjusted tomorrow hopefully able to make it look a little more symetrical
