New to FIAT

Hello,


I am new to FIAT and to the site. I am looking to see if there are any performance upgrades I can do to my 2012 500 pop. Please let me know. I am starting to really like Fiat and want to see what I can get into.

Re: New to FIAT

UK 500's are 1.2's - the US cars are actually HEAVIER - hence the larger engine.

Re: New to FIAT

I'm pretty sure the USA 500 has a larger fuel tank, better insulation from road noise and the likes of thicker glass etc to make it more refined.

So jealous we don't have the electric 500e in Europe.
