Congrats!
I didn't have them in the car and, unfortunately, they don't appear to have been installed either. I spoke to the dealer about it and they want to see it before they'll order some. So, I'm waiting for my new plates to come in before I make the journey down to Rhode Island.

@klikai - I almost got a white one, as that was the only one available with the options I wanted but, by the time I was ready to pull the trigger, it was gone. Luckily, the red one popped up the next day when doing an inventory search on the Fiat site and I'm glad it did. I really love the color!

Very nice....you are going to love it......look into Eurocompulsion.com if you are interested in an aftermarket cold air intake...adds about 8 HP and enhanced the sound when you get on it....

I may look into this at some point, but I'm not that mechanically inclined.

I believe someone post the seat prices at like 3 grand each...

But yes, I do like them too.

I have been on the new windshield wait list for 2 months now...

If you have ever had and assembled a Lego set, you should be able to install most of the mods available to us. A modest tool set is usually all that is needed.

That's good to know. Maybe I'll tackle one or two next year.
