History
Day 1 in my new white Fiat 500 Sport with a 5 speed manual with only 9,000 miles on it. I got a great deal on the final selling price and was given a good price for my trade (Ford Fusion SE 2010).

The ride home I have to admit I was second guessing/doubting the purchase. I know it’s like comparing apples to oranges, but I felt uncomfortable and out of place in the Fiat. I felt lost and confused while driving home. So yes, I was missing my Fusion, but I took a few deep breaths and reminded myself this is all new and I need time to get comfortable.

So on the hour long drive home I came to realize that most of the negative reviews I read were wrong. This car has plenty of power merging onto the highway and even passing cars. Like some reviews stated, you need to keep the RPMs up to get the most out of the car. Though I thought the engine would scream at the high RPMs well I was wrong. It was quiet and smooth, almost like the higher the RPMs the better the motor ran and sounded. I was VERY surprised and I must say it put a smile on my doubting face.

Modifications

Interior
I needed a new boot ring, the OEM ring had two broken tads and was popping up on the upper right corner.

Since I needed to replace the ring, I added a new shifter boot as well. What the ****, why not, right? :)
