So, after looking at these cars for a couple of months, when I was taking my Abarth 500C in for a oil change, I drove a non Abarth 124. The dealer had a few cars on order, and one red one showed up, and we went over to take a look, but it was not ready for sale. I made a offer, and after a few emails, they showed up at the house last night ( 200 miles away from the dealer), dropped off the 124 Abarth, picked up my Abarth 500C, we signed the papers in my living room....... Woke up this morning to see if it was a dream....
Yep, there is a Red 124 Abarth, MT parked in my garage.....

Ha, ha! Nice! Congrats.


Similar - I went "just to test drive" an Abarth. Wrote a deposit check when we returned.


Went home and told the wife: "Honey, I think I just bought a car." Thankfully, my wife is awesome. Might have to replace her minivan soon though.

Awesome story. Sounds like a stand up dealership to drive 200 miles each way.

Thanks so much for all the nice comments.
Now I need to look at what I want to add to the car....
Already ordered a steering wheel and side emblems....

I know I need floor mats, and thoughts what would be the best rubber mat?

So many things, will read the forum and get ideas,,,,
Already thinking;;;

Record Monza Exhaust?
124 Emblem?
European Red front plug?

Any advice is greatly appreciated

Beautiful ride. The perfect ���� color. Before you go on a spending spree enjoy the car as it is....it’s pretty damned good right off the boat and a lot of things I thought of doing were back burnered. Though a Dv+ should be on the short list.

I am in agreement with Redtoy, enjoy it for a bit like it is. I did ask Santa for Coco mats and did splurge on an EC Phase 1 tune waiting to be installed. Car is just like yours, red/black interior and just over one week old., and I am trying to learn how it performs in stock tune before adding the Phase 1

Any advice is greatly appreciated
I am in agreement with Redtoy, enjoy for a bit before making too many changes. Mine is just over a week old, same color and interior. I did ask Santa for Coco mats and did splurge on an EC Phase 1 tune, so who am I to talk,lol.
