The position isn't just about removing dodgy content, or banishing someone to the naughty step. It's about becoming someone who can make a big difference to the forum,, so if this is you, get applying!

I enjoyed my time here as a moderator, you will too


unfortunately , the lack of ANY exciting new vehicles in the FIAT fleet,
mean that all those (younger) Cinq/ Sei , GP , Bravo/a owners that were VERY active and lively..,
are a thing of the past - 500's sold to middle aged couples.

all of the "interesting" cars now have Alfa /Abarth badges..

Who are you calling middle aged?

Think you'll find the 500's popular with late teens/early twenties, and a LOT of students lol

the top 5 posters in last months 500 section , average age @ 62..

YES - people from 17 to 97 drive little 500's, (45 to 125 drive 500L )
something tells me they are NOT forum users..

the people that made 40% of the forums traffic 4 years ago when I joined - and attended FF meets,
now drive cars with Abarth or GTI Badges

just an observation.

Re: Become a part of the FF Team - positions vacant!

The problem is that Fiat learned its lesson, they tried something new with the 2007 bravo and it didn't sell, so they went back to their boring uninspired car designs that women and older people seem to like. So no one is pationate about their products anymore.
I'm getting a new car next week and thank god it's not a fiat.

I don't think I'll be dusting off the Zimmer frame for a little while!

And I can't see me buying an Abarth just yet.
I'm having too much fun with the Twinair

Or a suzuki badge as the case maybe lol.. I would get an abarth mind, although they aren't good enough for the price tag imo even the older ones still are more than i would pay for one, if/when they get down to a just a few grand i might buy one lol.. Thats the Yorkshire in me coming through haha

Re: Become a part of the FF Team - positions vacant!

As a 21 year old male who drivs a white Fiat 500, I can confirm all the above is correct.


On topic; might have a shot at this.

Re: Become a part of the FF Team - positions vacant!

I'd love to do this! Shame you have to have at least 100 posts really, kind of narrows your pool down a little bit.


Just because a person hasn't posted as much as others doesn't mean they are on the forum less or would be any less dedicated or passionate about Fiat in general. Shame really.
