  1. Is the Bose Audio System a Worthwhile Option?

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    That’s not my experience. To test, I purposefully turned the guidance down to 0 because sometimes I want the music to continue to play and may not want the voice prompts at times. The media volume gets cut during the guidance prompts when set to 0. And if I have music up loud enough, a voice...
  2. San Diego vs Austin

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    Given the chance to locate to San Diego, that is the place to go hands down. People are happier there than the alternative.
  3. Is the Bose Audio System a Worthwhile Option?

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    I havent seen anyone really complain about the Bose system itself, just the headrest speakers part for music. Phone calls sound great through them but music is better faded front. What do Bose owners think of the built-in navigation prompts from the system both front and headrest? With the...
  4. Help!!!! My gas tank lid will not open!!

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    Since I never pay at the pump (don’t trust those card readers!!) I am now in the habit of coming back and opening the driver’s door slightly, then opening the gas cap. Whether you unlock with the fob or with the keyless button like I do, it’s a procedure I force myself to do so I don’t have to...
  5. LS3 changeover help

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    I’m sure it must be more complex then than my line of questioning, but the Fiat 124 was delivered during the ND1 Miata phase. In the “habu”, they are replacing the motor, supporting motor components and the transmission so I would guess that their cracked ND1 ecu could be a starting point for...
  6. LS3 changeover help

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    Interesting. If not the Flyinn Miata supplied ecu for the Flying Miata modified ls3, then who’s? Do they normally take a stock mx5 ecu and tune that?
  7. When ABARTH is life but you are on a budget!

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    The distinction is more like the “beloved” M Sport badge, and even then, in the US, the differences are not nearly as much as that.

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    I saw a ND Mazda mx5 painted in those exact same heritage colors at a car park. I was going to park next to it until I saw what it was. Wish I had taken a pic but was on the way to a plane
  9. looking to buy, what is wrong with this car I found?

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    What is not stock based on the photos: The chrome “124 Spider” badge has been debadged from the boot The taillight housing inserts have been changed to red. From factory they would be white to match body color Steering wheel looks a bit different than what I’m used to seeing on an Abarth which...
  10. Rearview Mirror Wobbly

    Exterior and Interior
    I flipped mine upside down and that helped a bit with the vibration but the higher angle which works for some taller drivers was not for me. Strange that I can slightly hold the mirror and that results in a significant reduction in vibration but no amount of fidgeting with the mount helps as much
  11. Is your car a magnet too?

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    Your coworker has an interesting yet shortsighted way of interpreting things. I personally park away from the front because I don’t have a ton of cash, and whether it’s a new car or an old one with a new paint job, or just a really nice wax, I try and stay away from traffic, kids or any...
  12. Is your car a magnet too?

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    I get the same. Even when parking say 1/4 away from the exit and far enough from the entrance into the empty area, I have come back to someone parking right next to me. In those situations there were plenty of closer and farther spaces. It’s obvious those drivers wanted to get closer looks
  13. Now follow ups to the 124 by fiat

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    For comparison’s sake, I still see plenty of Chrysler Crossfires on the road and for sale. Serviceability and cost beyond the manufacturer’s warranty period is all about the platform. I’m not worried
  14. Discuss Throttle Boosts

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    The cable and main board are small enough to go behind the interior footwell panel. There is enough of a hole right at the accelerator that I routed the booster cable through but I started by removing the pedal and routing the booster cable from behind that interior hole. My cable is routed...
  15. First Fiat in over 44 years

    Owner Check-In Area and New Member Introductions
    Check out the thread below if you have time. Fortunately or unfortunately, most mods that people do are here versus individual threads. It may make it seem like we don’t have a lot of posts here due to a lot of it consolidated in one thread...
  16. What did you do to your Fiat 124 Spider today?

    What Did You Do To Your 2017+ FIAT 124 Spider Toda
    I bought the Fiat logo pair from Amazon for $12. Along with the magnetic switch and auto shut off, there is an additional button that can manually switch on and off. The beauty is that everything gets reset when the magnetic switch is engaged
  17. The All FIAT 124 MAXPower PRO Engine Control Module is here!

    Madnesss Autoworks
    Yes, they do however exactly what parameters they modify is each company’s secret sauce. Some do fuel, boost threshold, some do timing and possibly throttle mapping... i think the bolt ons basically do boost and maybe fuel. I have a throttle remapper which makes the car pull harder with less...

    What Did You Do To Your 2017+ FIAT 124 Spider Toda
    Great camera work of the optional “bright polished” tips which are too big to fit other aftermarket tips on. I’m sold on that polish now. Already in my cart for next shipment. The shine really does a number on them
  19. Who else is considering the new C8 Corvette?

    2017+ FIAT 124 Spider General Discussion Forum
    I'm sure the manufacturers and the aftermarket will create ways to continue enjoyment. Fake exhaust tips, fake exhaust sound piped into cabins, manual mode automatic transmissions once they get everyone used to using paddle shifters.... I mean, the 124 Spider is a 1.39 litre 4 banger and a lot...
