That net thing in the drivers footwell on the left will be useless

Current one useful for coins, however in the new Competizione this has been deleted.

    Definitely dont like the daytime lights they look too much like the Mini (YUCKKKKKKKKKKK!) and they are not a complete ring of light (I actually prefer the existing ones!), not so sure about the glove box I like the open design of the previous model but I like everything else that they have done, it really lifts the interior its just a shame that there is no plan for upgrading the Abarth (or the 500 Sport model) with these improvements as there is no really incentive to go for a new Comp (especially now they have changed the servicing schedules but that is a whole different thread!!)

    Misterg the performance changes should be all the incentive you need for a new Competizione ;)

    Misterg - Not sure if you noticed but the new drls are supposed to look like the "00's" In "500" .I think a nice subtle touch :)
    Now with added monza fun :P

    Didn't know that Salvos but now that you mention it, I can see it! Quite quirky that!

    Now if they'd done something with the gearing (140 is not much use in the UK!) to get an even lower 0-62 time then there would be an incentive!!!

    True! But another second off that would give it a real edge over the competitors!
