Talking New toy!!!

So my fiance and I picked up a new 2012 Fiat 500 Pop today (wish it was the abarth but until 2014 its out of my price range). Cars a blast to drive and cant complain about the gas mileage. More pictures to come soon. Sorry for the bad pic it was late and with the cell

Future Mods:
CAI
Exhaust (probably do custom hopefully by end of October)
Sport Springs (just need to hit order lol)
Wheels- Not much a of a choice with wheels but im thinking of 17x7 Sparcco Red or ESM wheels model ESM-004SL
Strut Bar

Haven't been on here much been busy with work and a couple of club things. Got a few updates to go with my build.

Updated Parts
XXR530 16x8+20 Wheels
BFG KDW 205x45x16 Tires
Custom Exhaust
Front/Rear Abarth Body Styling (Waiting for paint)
Ebiach Sport Springs (coil overs will be here in July. My wheel gap is killing me)
Cavalino Front Spoiler (Picking up March 23rd)
Cavalino Rear Spoiler (Picking up March 23rd)

I got a few other pieces that will be coming in on the 23rd thanks to HotFiat.com as a primary sponsor.

I picked up some sponsors for my vehicle including BFGoodrich, Meguiars, HotFiat.com, Mishimoto, K&N, and working a couple of others.

We went from a 09 Jetta 2.5 Wagon and 07 Jetta 2.5 Sedan to a 2012 Fiat Pop and 2013 Fiat Sport. Gas mileage is awesome (38-50mpg on average), price was good, and parts are cheap lol. I paid 520 for full front and rear bumpers.

Went to California to pick up some new product from a new sponsor. Got some great stuff with a lot more to come. Also got some great pics of the drive on the PCH

Parts:
Short Antenna
Short Shift
Weighted Shift Knob
K&N filter
Upper Chassis Brace
Rear Wiper Delete
Disappearing front license plate mount R/C

Future product will be posted when received. I am hoping to have everything installed by this weekend and the new bumpers in the booth by next Friday.

Looking good. I was waiting to see more of these pop up with some work done to them.

How do you go about getting these sponsors?

Ive been very lucky with obtaining the sponsors I currently have. It has been a long and tough process but it is really working out. Really looking to gain a sponsor for seats so I can start work on my interior. I started by just making a proposal and sending it off to every company I could. Most companies offer a small discount but some you can get lucky with.

My current sponsors are. BFGoodrich, Meguairs, Mishimoto, Grapik Impact, HotFiat.com, NOS Energy, Clutch Masters, K&N, and hopefully if things go right ill be able to add Recaro to the list

Back when I raced mountain bikes different companies had a grassroots sponsorship that would allow you to get some percentage off of parts or gear if you were selected. Usually it was contingent on you being involved in races or competitions so that the brand would be displayed in front of a crowd.

Are you contacting these companies with the intention of being in a number of shows and whatnot? Sorry for all the questions, I was just not really aware that sponsorships like what you seem to be talking about happened in the car scene for anything other than extreme show cars and race teams.

Yeah I am attending a number of shows this year along with getting my car on the track a few times this year (just track days). If everything goes right with one of my sponsors I will be the SEMA booth car for them this year which will open up a lot of doors.

I am sponsored by all companies I have on my vehicle. I would love to have more sponsors.

BFGoodrich- KDW Tires
Mishimoto- Hoses and they are currently developing Radiator & Intercooler for our cars.
Meguiars- Year supply of detail product
Graphik Impact- Does all my decals
HotFiat.com- Primary sponsor which is where I will be receiving most of my aftermarket parts.
K&N- Filter
NOS Energy- Multiple cases of Energy Drinks for those drives to Cali and long work days
