  1. This will happen to all 124s

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    No worries, and I have to admit it's a hot button topic for me, as there is a LOT of disinformation rolling around out there. I did forget to mention the second real threat of having a Spider in the oilsands operations area. If you park it in the wrong place, a truck that's larger than a two...
  2. This will happen to all 124s

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    Nothing in the oilsands that would have any impact on it... well.; that's not entirely true. A bear might walk up and decide to do a back rub on the fender. You gotta quit getting suckered in by the lobby groups. lol But if you parked outside an oil refinery, yeah, mist and percip from...
  3. Headlights - Follow Me Home

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    Yup, as with many things in the manual, vague hints... here's the content from page 26 of the 2017 version of the Abarth model owner's manual: But, as you've noted, Dan provides the info on his site. 30 seconds by default, but also selectable to 60, 90, or 120 seconds. But there's also a...
  4. UK Anniversary Edition No Heated Door Mirrors?

    Exterior and Interior
    Peculiar. You'd think the two things would be considered a package. Kind of like getting a driver side rear view mirror bot not one on the passenger side. Glad to hear you get the HRW at least.
  5. Grill emblem fit Abarth?

    Exterior and Interior
    It's the old squeezing a round peg into a sqaure hold condundrum. Maybe you could get someone to 3D print a modified version that fits the round opening in the Abarth grill?
  6. Going...Going...

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    Fully agree with you Azzurro. When I read the article talking about it being continued in the NA market, I just about choked laughing. Yeah, they're going to continue production in Hiroshima for a smaller overall market than the one that exists globablly.... or they're going to invest to...
  7. Ever get hit by anything?

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    Summer before last, I was driving on a highway during a fairly heavy rain and had a Kamikazi black squirrel dart across the highway in front of me. I tried to avoid him, but if was like playing air hockey... I felt it hit the engine cover, then a fairly large thunk as it's body did the rinse...
  8. FIAT will stop producing the 124 Spider. (officially)

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider And Abarth 124 Spider News
    The same way they service my Mitusbishi Montero SUV that was last sold in North America in 2005. Over time, some of the trim pieces become more scarce, but overall there's no big service worries. I don't anticipate anything major with our vehicles. Pretty much everything except body trim...
  9. HELP FCA - Warranty refused my claim

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    I think it depends on the model of Spider you own and the associated trim level. My understanding is that the Recaro's are not sold in Miatas. Ditto for the all leather seats with the red inserts and Abarth branding. At least that's my understanding of it.
  10. Anti-Depressive solution when winterazing your 124 spider

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    Oh Mike, now what have you done.... lol I must have spent a couple of hours on that site. I found the CAT 797 Haulers that I saw so many of up in the oilsands, and even the 1930's Oliver tractor I learned to drive on when I was a kid working on the neighbour's farm. Joking aside, thank you...
  11. 64gb USB Thumb Drive in the USB Port

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    Hmmmmm..... now that has me wondering on another issue. I thought all the cars came with 2 USB ports. My 2017 Abarth trim version did, and about a year ago something happened such that only one of them can be recognized at the same time. I used to be able to plug a USB drive in each of them...
  12. 124 Spider with FLAT HOOD?

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    I thought I remembered you saying you had some real issues with the repair work after that incident... wiring issues and some other stuff? Overall damage from a rear end collision would also vary upon the vector of the impact, as well as the velocity.
  13. UK Anniversary Edition No Heated Door Mirrors?

    Exterior and Interior
    Hopefully you did get rear window defrosting on the UK version of the car? That also exists in the North American versions. I don't winter drive mine, but it works equally well to clear interior fogging if you get in the vehicle and you're a bit damp from being out in the rain.
  14. Anti-Depressive solution when winterazing your 124 spider

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    There are only two versions. A red body with black heritage stripe, and a white body with black heritage stripe. The model manufacturer orignally showed a black version in their product catalogue, but it never came to fruitition... and they don't return information requests. But, regardless...
  15. Oil consumption

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider Parts And Accessories
    Probably. Unless you've got a huge puddle under the car, or laying on top of the liner under the engine.... that would be a lot to consume for that short a distance. I'd have it checked out. As an FYI, mine does consume oil. Not as much as you've seen though, maybe a quart over twice that...
  16. Rear lower lights in the US

    Abarth 124 Spider Discussions
    When I did mine, I found my biggest challenge was getting the screws back in place when I re-mounted the light housing back into the rear bumper. It was more by blind feel and praying that I didn't drop the screw while doing it. lol I wired mine in as functional rear fog lights, not brake...
  17. I've never seen one before

    They're both beautiful.
  18. Invisibility Cloak

    What Did You Do To Your 2017+ FIAT 124 Spider Toda
    Speculation on my part, but in rural areas there are folks that get their jollies from taking shots at mailboxes (as well as traffic signs, road signs, trees, etc. Basically anything stationary.). At least that was the case in the countryside where I grew up. (Completely off topic, but at the...

    What Did You Do To Your 2017+ FIAT 124 Spider Toda
    In Canada, the police would do squat.... if the indicent occured in a store parking lot or an underground parkade. They would say it's privately owned and not their jurisdiction. It would be interesting to hear how this is interpreted in the States.
  20. 124 Spider with FLAT HOOD?

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    My understanding was that they all had the bumps, but they started out as very small, and grew larger as the engine changed. Go figure. I never owned one of the originals, so I was going from what I had researched on the web regarding the early designs. I stand corrected, and I've now found a...
