Hello everyone!

My name is Angelo and I live in Montreal (nope, i'm not a french-Canadian :p).


I got my Abarth in December and now that the Canadian winter slowly goes away, it's time to start modding!

I'm not a fan of huge mods but i really like visual and small upgrades.

Today that the temperature was +4c (39f) I decided to do my first change.

So here it is! PIAA DRL.

Forgive the (unbelievably) ugly steel rims. In Quebec, winter tires are mandatory from December to March. Can't wait to put back the 17s!

Next on my to-do list:
---------------------------------------------
HID conversion kit
Italian flag badges
LED fog lights
New michelin a/s sport tires
PIoneer 4100NEX - double din head unit
Plasti-dip all chromes
500madness GoPedal
Tinted side turn signals


Any suggestions are welcome !

Welcome! If I recall correctly, that stripe and the black headlights were exclusive to 2012 Abarths sold in Quebec. I think it was a special edition for the Canadian Grand Prix.

Hello hello!Today i got an HID kit installed on my Abarth.

In the photos the light output shows green-ish but it's actually pure white (6000k).The kit came with mounting brackets which was really convenient. I mounted the driver side ballast on the front frame and the passenger side behind the coolant tank. Just for extra security i added a few industrial strength tire-ups

Also yesterday I had the 50000 km service done at a dealership and they found that the left front balljoint was almost done....et voila 800$ extra paid. At least the guys at the dealership managed to get it under the coverage of the warranty so i had to pay only the labor work.



Next "upgrade" coming at the end of the month which will be 4 new Michelin pilot a/s 3 sport tires!

Hello hello !

Today i got my rims back on with 4 brand new yokohama s drive. I feel that it rides way nicer and waaaaay quieter than the p-zeros. I got it for a spin, hit 70 mph and they were not making so much noise like the p-zeros.

I was debating between the yokohamas and the michelin a/s sport but the guy at the dealer told me that they re pretty much the same but the yokos are 100$ cheaper. So far all nice !
