So while I have been participating in this forum for a bit, I can finally say I am now the proud owner of #87. We traded our two motorcycles in for this sweet ride and I drove it home from Houston yesterday (4 hours)...now, I can say up front that I am not the car enthusiast, that would be my son who is already talking mods...but for me, the most important thing is top down, music up. For anyone that is on the fence about getting the Premium package, let me tell you the speakers in the Premium package are unbelievable with the top down...You can turn it UP or way down...we had Radar Love going at low levels while we were listening to the waves breaking on the shores as we were driving down a shoreline in Rockport, Texas. Here are a few pictures...this was my 60th Birthday present from my husband (birthday not until August 12)...Son says he will get a "plaque" for the car shows for me for my birthday...HA! I have never done a car show but he was ultra impressed with the way the turbo is so obviously displayed...and he already wants to put a new muffler...Anyway, here is my day of taking ownership...I am THRILLED.

Fiat really nails it with that shade of blue. The color is perfect. Congrats! How were the seats on your 4 hour drive?

Still amazes me at how much they improved on the 124 from the Miata. The interior and exterior color options alone make a big difference. But hopefully the colors we see now aren't what we'll be stuck with for the coming years, we'll see some added.

Regarding the question of the 4 hour trip home from Houston, I was fairly tired by the time we got home (that and I can't discount a back workout the day before that had me a little sore and strained already). I think a small lumbar pillow would be a nice addition. But, we climbed back in it last night for another two hour "leisurely drive" since my husband hadn't gotten to drive it yet. It isn't the comfort level of my Yukon Denali, but with frequent stops a long trip is not out of the question. The car is magnificent...I'm not disappointed!

The blue paint color is startling in real life. The pictures don't do it justice...seeing the blue next to another Grey Meteor Spider which I still have reserved, I was astounded by the difference...
