i love the way these look and sound. just the other day some high schoolers raced me and lost to my beautiful fifth avenue lol. they were pretty surprised and so was i. stick with them they bought dodge so i think they know what they are doing.

That sucks, but looks to be salvageable. I was always curious, how are repair/maintenance costs on these? Are they comparable to premium line (BMW, Audi, MB), or more like non premium imports (Honda, Toyota, etc)?

[]Alvin Brinson

It was repaired by insurance. The body shop screwed up a few things, but overall it runs/drives just like it did before.

I am not one to speak about repair/maintenance with my level of mods. I have had issues, but every issue I've had of any significance was due pretty much directly to mods.

Ouch! What exactly happened here?

[]Alvin Brinson

College kid turned left in front of me when I had a green. He thought green meant he could go left, didn't wait for the protected left. So he got cited for failure to yield.

He spent 2 weeks not answering the phone for his insurance company, so lots of delay getting my car repaired... Ended up having to turn it over to my insurance company who will pursue his company. The magically accepted fault the day after I handed it over to my own insurance....

So it's been 3 weeks and they're just now ordering parts to fix it ... Around $5000 in damages.

Wow. Glad you're okay and the car is repairable. Hope the Abarth is back on the road soon!
