Default FS: 2013 Fiat 500 Abarth

Testing the waters here. I've fallen out of love with the car and i'm looking around for an R53 GP to replace it.

83xx miles and meticulously cared for. Has the 17" Abarth wheels and the black stripes and mirror caps. Comes with Eibach springs (OEM included) Otherwise, the car is stock. I will include another 4 quarts of the 5W-40 Pennzoil and a Mopar filter.

I'm looking for $20k OBO. I'm pretty firm on the price but I might be able to move it around a bit.

Meh, it was an impulse buy. I had just unloaded the GTO and I was itching to get something new and fun. The FRS and BRZ were underwhelming and overpriced. The R56 really didn't do a lot for me. I should have just gotten an R53 to begin with. It was a mistake and i'm gonna have to eat at least a few grand to get out from under this car.

I hope I can find a GP when the time comes. #1320 has been on ebay a few times now.

If I can't get a GP, it would need to be a really low mileage R53. It sucks I can't find my old EB 03 S. That car was my favorite.

If you happen to sell your car in the near future, there's a GP for sale on Craigslist...

$ 16000 for a low mileage GP seems like a fair starting point price wise.

Damn, these things always pop up when i'm in a bad position.

I just wish I could stumble upon like $3k so I could get rid of some of the negative equity in the Fiat. lol

#1320 is a car my store sold and serviced. If that's for sale, buy it. The guy drove it a lot, but he kept it in good shape. It might need a couple little things, but I remember it being a really nice car. I always liked it for the number. Number of feet in a 1/4 mile. Kind of an odd but cool car related number.

Yeah, #1320 keeps popping up on ebay with like 70k miles.

Whatever car I get I plan on stripping it down to a roller and powdercoating the subframes and control arms and doing all the poly bushings right away. Replace and rubber that's old and get the seats and carpet out of the car to get it nice and clean. I need to find a JCW shift light for an R53 and a set of the accessory Stewart Warner gauges that I had in the blue car. It sucks hardcore that all those cool factory accessories are obsolete and hard to find now. I hope I can find a push button start kit, too!
