Re: My 500

I have no photos of the Abarth seats in it yet.
Lots I can do to it still, I have been looking around at something new but I have not seen anything that I like yet...apart from the Land Rover dc100 and that is not coming out until 2015

Re: My 500

Can you explain the white mirror covers ?

The satin trim on your 500 is making a 'comeback' - you pay extra for it over chrome on the Mito with it being unique on the more expensive Veloce model. I take it that you have no plans to remove it ?

Have you seen any white 500s with a totally black roof ?
It's an option on the Twin Air models with it mimicing a carbon roof. It seems to be an option with other manufacturers as well.

Re: My 500

The white mirror covers are part of my mirror cover collection, I have the satin original ones, clearcote carbon fiber, chrome, white, red and black.
I change them now and again.
The satin trim is all going to be black very soon...I just don't like it.
I have not seen any white 500's with a black roof yet, I bet it looks quite good like that.

Yes I will be driving the Tesla Roadster, 0-60 in 3.7 seconds should be fun. I have never driven an electric car apart from bumper cars at the fair so I am looking forward to it.

There was a suggestion from RobW of putting vinyl on the roof of a white car as a cheaper option that a black painted roof. Fiat's price for the same job now seem reasonable if you didn't want a glass roof.

Very interested on your feedback on the Tesla. It's a slightly eerie feeling being powered along by electric power - feels like you're in the future.

Re: My 500

My Abarth wheels are going black. By the time they go back on the car they will be black along with my door handles, boot handle, front moustache and the bumper inserts.

Do you plan to get them powder coated or sprayed ?

Re: My 500

I have something very special planned for the wheels.
