My 124 Abarth finally got delivered to me Saturday evening. So far I'm loving this car so much more than my BRZ I traded in. I had a phenomenal experience purchasing the car from Auto Express Fiat of Erie working with Justin Sutton and I urge anyone in the PA area to do business with them.

Now comes the bad part, I purchased the car in PA and live in GA so the dealership ended up finding a shipping company that stated that they would pick up and deliver the car to me within 2-4 days after the order was placed. Lets just say I owned the car for 2 weeks before I received it but anyways onto the pics of it!

Looks beautiful! Congrats!

I had a similar problem with shipping. It took them three tries over two weeks to finally figure out a way to get it to me.

This is more and more becoming my favourite colour... Specially for the Abarth.
Funny, these pictures solidified my feeling that silver is a better color for the Classica and Lusso while white better suits the Abarth. Red still triumphs over all. Nice to have choices.

Our Abarth is a garage partner to a BRZ. The Abarth is all over the BRZ for quality and equipment. I think the BRZ has slightly better steering and the better driving position and seats. It also is the more practical of the two. But the Abarth is the better car. And, of course, it's a roadster.

Yea that's essentially how it went for me and had I been updated frequently and not promised delivery several times where it didnt happen then I wouldnt have been upset about it. Friday night the driver had me up until like 1:30 am thinking I was getting my car that night so I figure you know I'll let that slide if I get the car first thing in the morning only to end up getting it at 7 PM.

You must be getting a lot of angry looks from BRZ and FRS owners :D

And maybe some thumbs up from Miata owners.

Congrats.
Thanks man and not yet haha. I havent posted it on the FRS/BRZ page yet only these boards and IG.

congrats! So now maybe I'll see another 124 here in COlumbus!
Thanks! It's my daily so you'll probably see me eventually. I might show up to PTAPs Trunk or Treat event Saturday if I'm free.

Thank you, hopefully yours comes in soon.

So far I'm liking everything about the Abarth more than the BRZ except of course trunk space. I took a trip to atlanta as soon as the car got off the truck and i was able to fit a full sized nike bag with cloths and my gf fit her bag and all her extra crap in there too so not bad.

I have a question for you, Godina. Does "WNY" mean Western New York? I'm originally from Rochester.

I'm guessing you're from the Chautauqua area, given that you saw the Spider at a dealer in Erie.

A golf bag, with clubs, fits nicely in the passenger seat. Most self-standing bags will fit in the trunk, but you have to take the clubs out of the bag and remove the panel on the passenger side to get the woods in.
