Re: Welcome to our American users!

I don't know how far you can get with a Jap Guitar, but $37 worth of gas in a Fiat 500 might get you from one end of Texas to the other. It takes a good six to eight hours to get from El Paso on the west of TX to Austin.

Looking forward to checking out the Leisure Lounge and really exploring the forum.

By the way, taxing tea is tacky. ;-P

Bonita, It will take you 6 hours to get from Austin to Midland. Forget El Paso. That'll be nearly 12. Pack a lunch.

I have Prima Edizione #376. Waco has no dealer yet. Someone needs to be talking to me about delivery. wink, nudge.

Re: Welcome to our American users!

I donít mean to complain, and itís only my second post here, but 500 (USA) seems exclusionary. What about us Canadians?
Itís akin to calling a UK spec car the English Version.
Iíve just purchased a North American 500, which is actually built in Mexico.

My first post here!
Is there a waiting period for the new 500's?

Re: Welcome to our American users!

Being the exclusive American (North, South, and Central) distributor of Borrani rims, I would like to thank the originator of this forum. I really really look forward to interacting with you all on here. On a side note, has anyone tried our rims yet on your Fiat? The S-Rays are getting some rave reviews from Firat 500 drivers.

Re: Welcome to our American users!

Hey ....just brought my Sport 500 home a week ago and I already have put 1250 miles on it. Thinking about putting decals on roof and hood......eBay has decals and I can get it applied locally. This baby really holds the road. Traveled the Florida Turnpike to get home...cruised at 70 all the way.

Have enjoyed hearing from other owners here and abroad.

1250 miles in a week! You must really love that car, or have a terribly long commute into work!

Welcome to the site!

Uh-oh, you're unlucky to have hooked a Texan into replying to this!

You can go in TWO different directions in Texas for 842 miles.

From Houston to El Paso is within 20 miles of Houston to Atlanta, GA!

From Houston to El Paso is within 20 miles of Houston to St. Louis!

El Paso is closer to Los Angeles than it is to Houston!

Traveling on I-10 across Texas you recite:
"The sun is riz, the sun is setÖ
.. and here I is in Texas yet!"

I bought my Lounge about three weeks ago (early May, 2012) at Fiat of McKinney (TX.. north side of Dallas.) Man, I love this car!
