Hi, I bought the 2017 Abarth 124 a couple of months ago with 20,000klm from a 70yo gent in Victoria, immaculate, flew down paid and drove home 600klm, had never driven one and had only seen them on youtube, its a long boring drive but the Abarth made my day.
For some reason the 124 abarth is no longer in the showrooms in Aust (only Abarth 124 avail here), one has to ask to have a look.
The car came fully optioned, I have added an excellent exhaust (made in Texas) see pic, also larger paddle shifters, a must. Coffee cup holder works really well, (from Korea).
Why automatic? I was hoping my wife might enjoy the car, I already have five manual sports cars so my needs are met, she has only driven the Abarth once and now has little chance of getting me out of it.
Love the auto, perfect for built up areas, did a return trip to Melbourne a few days ago, 1900klm a breeze. Sport mode through a tunnel auto or paddle sounds fantastic, sound is brilliant anywhere.
I have NOS Abarth exhaust systems on two E Types, that is another drug.
Not sure I will do any upgrades but RaceChip RS sounded good so contacted

them in Germany but hopeless service, sent incorrect info and fitting instructions for an Alfa Romeo so will let it go for the time being.
Thanks for the site very helpful

@Jock where did you get the 7" screen shade? I've put some black tape around the top edge of mine to reduce the reflection of the silver frame off the screen, that shade looks like it will cover it up nicely
