It’s that time to change the fluid that Fiat tell you it’s lifetime. Nothing last for a lifetime. Did it at 100k miles and it’s so much smoother now. Basically like butter. Why did I waited this long? Hah. Out with the stock mopar fluid and in with Redline (full synthetic) 75W90 GL4. Thank you @subletdriver. ūüôā

You looking for Tony? Well, no luck for you then. He packed his things and left Fiat, a long time ago. While there’s no official records. We pretty sure he works at Volkswagen. Probably at the TDI department. Hah. For real. No idea what Tony is doing these days but I can tell you. If you stay out of the dealership...

Yes, it went quiet after a few post. I went off road and started working on a magazine version which had a few great spreads incl. a great cover but hit a few curbs and soon realized that it’s just too darn much work and not enough time. So, I accepted the defeat and today (April 18, 2019) brushed the dust off the...

Great brakes are essential as the faster you go, the quicker you need to stop. Our stock brakes are good from the start but we change them at 18k miles (still had plenty of meat) to EBC redstuff. We found these are a tad better than stock, incl. the price. Now, there is a long break-in period which might not be ideal...

If you want your¬†car to last, don’t skip on the car maintenance. It’s a¬†major key factor to preserve a cars life.¬†Many people thinks low miles only matter but that’s not true. A car that sits too¬†much might not be better except in value.¬†Cars need to be driven. We sure like to drive,¬†got 49k miles on the ’13...

Oh lawd! That yellow is off the hook. Just take our¬†money and shut up. Wait, how much did you say? lol. Our modified Abarth (U.S. version) might be as quick or even quicker. We really don’t know but we’re up for that challenge. It’s crap (like a Nissan Versa)¬†that we’re not at the¬†IAA in Frankfurt, Hall 6, Pavillon 5...

Socal Abarth has created another great event. It’s a 3-day event but you can join any of the 3-days that fit you.¬†Here’s the schedule. Friday, October 16th, 2015 ‚Äʬ†Drives through the Malibu Canyons including the famous “Snake” ‚Äʬ†Lunch (included) on the Ocean along the PCH ‚ÄĘ Dinner (to be determined) Saturday,...

We put Antonio on the wall and hit¬†him with some hard questions no other journalist dare to ask. Okay, maybe Jorge Ramos from Univision would but we got here first (sorry, Jorge) so let’s get started. Ready? Here we go.¬† FC:¬†Great looking car, did you get¬†it new or used? A:¬† ¬†New. FC: Did you have to wait a long...

Yes, It’s true. We posted our 2nd¬†post so don’t forget to check out Antonio’s ultra clean Abarth. More great stuff is coming so please check back later and drop by regularly. Till then, Abarth Safely.
