Similar mileage myself. The (Eco) button still make it slow and change up far too early and hold on to too high a gear (mine's Dualogic). In normal mode it's fantastic. The noise and power delivery suit the car, making (IMO) the 1.2 & 1.4 feel very 'ordinary'

I suspect that the proportion of Twin Air owners voting is high on this site because people come here not just to enjoy Maxi's banter but because they are considering buying or have recently bought a 500.

I would guess that attendance on Fiat Forum will, for many members, drop off over time. So that fact skews the results of this poll in favour of current models.

Probably.

Exactly what I was going to say.

Most people come on here post a "Look at me! I've got a 500, aren't I the bestest!!!!!?!?!?!?!" thread, perhaps post a "How do I get into the document compartment?" thread and then come to whinge about servicing costs when their first service comes around.

It's natural with the Twinair being a new engine and a popular one at that, that there should be a disproportionate number of active members with them. I'd wager that there are probably 4 or 5 times as many 1.2's than twinair's on here in reality

Re: The big poll. Every 500 owner please vote.

IMO I think the spread of 1.2 votes as they stand at the mo probably isn't a million miles away from the proportion of specifications people own.

I can't remove specific votes but I can change the results per option. Which model of twinair is it you have?

Re: The big poll. Every 500 owner please vote.

Hi newbie here......first post (and on an iPhone so excuse the inevitable spilling mishtakes)

Can I vote three times? I had a Bossa Nova White Multijet Lounge 2008-10, a Breakbeat Grey 1.2 Sport 2010-12 and am taking delivery of another BN White Twinair Lounge on the 3rd January.

I would also like to find out how many miles people have done in their new 500s, I've done 90000 in my first two so far (but I guess that's for a separate poll)

Arrow New owner '12 Fiat 500 Abarth (USA) First post!

Hello from California!

I bought my Abarth (grigio w/rosso trim, US-spec) just two weeks ago, and am looking forward to finding good Fiat conversation here, as I learn my way around this forum.

But... I couldn't find my model among the voting poll options!?!
