  1. San Diego vs Austin

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    Just comparing Texas to southern California. That's the gist of this post, right. West coast libs vs lone star independents. And my own personal experience driving on 10 and 40. I had to go into the gas station to pay because the card reader on the pump was broken and saw a younger chap...
  2. San Diego vs Austin

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    Austin would probably be the best move. I have good friends who live north of Dallas and the thing is....just about everyone in Texas has a gun. So dont make eye contact when driving and avoid road rage at all costs. Also dont walk up to anyone's property unannounced. I'm serious. You will be...

    Nor was I. And yes homelessness on the west coast is getting out of hand. In Bend OR discount stores stopped selling tents. The solution; too long and complicated for this post. I say live where you want to live. Life is short. And drive our Spiders.

    California is expensive for a reason. Because its worth it. Oceans, mountains, deserts and everything in between. People forget the horrible smog and exhaust of cars with leaded gas. Good for a state taking charge of what the feds wouldn't do because of big corporate money. (Hey P and G, trim...
  5. Fog light install on classica?

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    I vote for going yellow in the factory fronts, adding clear round driving lights in the grill, and forget the rear. I'll see a rear one on in an Audi, when its not foggy of course, and it's supper annoying.

    Yep. Took the car out yesterday for a little exercise on some rural country roads and saw two kids raking leaves. I gave them an audible treat. Third gear is the best. Great acceleration without getting too crazy on the speed.
  7. Miata-Based Fiat 124 Spider Unlikely To Get Second Generation

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider And Abarth 124 Spider News
    A long warranty when they first debuted the cars back in '11 would have gone a long way too quell peoples fears that the cars would break prematurely. Yes, a missed opportunity.

    If its any consolation, our cars are better looking than the Mazdas. But that's another post.
  9. coolant leak

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider And Abarth 124 Spider News
    I initially didn't have any visible leakage of the ground, but could smell the coolant when I shut off the car, especially after a spirited run.

    The ice trick works great.
  11. Any Familiar with Zeigler Fiat in Illinois?

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    Nope. Looked like a new car, although I wasn't going over it with a fine tooth comb. I have a friend who is super anal retentive about his cars to the point that it's really annoying. If you are interested, nail down a price with them, grab a cheap flight to Chicago, then have a great drive...

    The silver one was in the service bay area waiting for me. Not sure where it was stored prior, forgot to mention. Now, and it's just a personal preference, I like the cars with out the bonnet stripe. The car has beautiful lines and I think the black hood draws the eyes away from the luscious...
  13. Coolant top-off?

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    Make sure the water pump isn't leaking.

    Yes, the only manual is the silver one.

    10 4. I'll have to figure out how to do that. Might not be till Wed or Thu to get up that way.

    How far away are you? I could check it out for you since I am retired and literally having nothing to do. I purchased a new 18 this last spring that had been at the dealership for a year and so far so good, minus the water pump issue.

    Yes, I purchased a Fiat 500 Lounge from them November of 2011. The purchased happened in the main Chrysler building. The Fiat "studio" was a double wide trailer with no heat, but Italian red leather bar stools. Go figure. A Fiat dealer since opened in Naperville and I took the 500 there for...

    For those that live in states with daylight savings time, do you make the effort to change the clock back, or just leave it and wait for spring.
  20. headlights and wipers

    With DRL's, I dont think this is as big a concern that it once was.
