Yeah but in reality its really pretty decent for a car with 160 HP. My SVT focus which had about 180 HP and 155 TQ when I was done modding it took 7.2 Seconds to get to 60 MPH and did the quarter mile in 15.4It looks awesome! I expected a little more performance, but it's still sweet!
I wouldn't hold my breath considering it was supposed to be originally released last November. I do believe it will released before June but that's as far as I go.Way off on price and 0-60 times, thankfully.
Just got an email about it from Fiat; says that it's available "first half of 2012". Anyone think that means that March is only a possibility?
I'd love to disagree, but I can't. I'm in no hurry, but do want as much time between intro and when I do buy, and let the gineau pigs help Fiat sort things out first.I wouldn't hold my breath considering it was supposed to be originally released last November.

After you supercharge it, you will be at about the same financial situation, have less power, and have a car that has less re-sale value. Your coilovers should transfer over and the intake and exhaust can be sold without taking too much of a hit (the items weren't THAT expensive in the first place). If you're looking for a performance 500, go get the Abarth!it probably makes more sense to just add a supercharger when one becomes available for our 500s since I've already paid for coilovers, exhaust, intake etc on my car
