    Default NYC: Performance/Design Tweaks for Fiat 124 Syder

    The 3/4 rear view is pretty nice.

    . . . and "good-bye" to large wheel gaps.

    Pretty unique.

    Has anyone said that this car looks more like a Miata than the ND Miata? Abarth nailed it. Everything is good--well, as good as it can be with that ridiculous fender height. I wish they retained the painted door card though. I bet the Miata's will swap right on. Perfection.

    I really hated the design when it was first announced...I'll admit it has grown on me substantially. I just picked up a 500 Abarth last weekend for my lady and I'm stealing that thing every chance I can get. The power plant is amazing and I can see why Fiat owners are butt hurt the standard 124 gets the same Abarth power plant they paid a premium for.

    I really like the looks of the 124 Abarth from the pics and videos I've seen. Yesterday I saw 2 124s in person for the first time, one was black base car the other was the nice blue Primo. I agree that the 124 really looks like an NB.The lower end 124 looked like a lower end NB with wheels not big enough for the wheel wells and the Primo looked really nice from the angle I saw it.
