Congrats on the new Spider and welcome to the forum! Guessing you'll have to put it into hibernation soon after picking it up if the weather is and indication.

Actually, I've got it in for winterizin', putting a set of studded Hakka 8's on it as we speak.. I've got our Volvo for the more inclimate serious mountain stuff, but used my 2013 Abarth to go everywhere in winter... should be a gas as a daily 4 season runabout.

It is equipped with a feature that won't let you start the car if the temperature is below -30 C. You'll have to warm the sensor too! Welcome aboard and you better hurry down here where it is warm enough to drive while the borders are still open.

I don't believe it comes fitted with one, however there is an OEM part available for the 500 I'm assuming you could use. Search the threads for the part number, it's been posted before.

That is part of the winter add-ons. CAD 428 installed, I'd like to save the turbo some cold weather stress.
