2018 Abarth 124 Spider 6MT
Hey guys, it's a pleasure to be here since it was such a long journey. I've been looking for a new car that suits me for the past 11 months, I've had all different car brand names come out my mouth to say I'll be the next owner of x, y, or z, but none of them felt right. When I discovered the 124 Spider I immediately fell in love, but to my surprise, the agony to get my hands on one of these were going to be a pain. I would look them up online every single day and try to find something, the closest thing being a red Classica at the fiat dealership around five miles from me. I didn't necessarily like the red for me, I only wanted an Abarth, and nor did I want to buy an automatic transmission. I stumbled upon quite a few possibile purchases, such as ones sold from Carvana or Vroom, though none of them felt like it would really suit me. Then, I became fed up after looking for such a long period, I went to my local Fiat/Alfa dealership and put a $5,000 down payment that would go towards the car and ensure I wanted an Abarth, so they could therefore go to auction and find me something, to then basically make me pay some crazy price. Until. I stumbled upon this forums and found a fellow member, Mikey, selling his 2018 Nero Jet Black Abarth 124 Spider with a manual transmission at only 21,000. I instantly made an account, followed up with Mikey and crossed my fingers. Next thing I knew, a week after I first messaged him I booked myself a flight from Miami to Boston in order to see my dream car. I can now say I am a proud owner of a 124 Spider and almost as excited to be a member of the forums. The car is currently being shipped down here to South Florida and will arrive 6/17. It still feels surreal. I have pictures only from Boston, so I'll add some more once she gets down here in the beautiful city! Big thanks to Mikey for making this happen so smoothly. I'm quite the chat, so I am looking forward to be speaking to you all very soon, I'll keep everyone updated on my progress with her!
