New here, first Fiat, advice & concerns?

Just bought my first Fiat 500 the POP model 2013 (used, naturally).
First off, is there an add-on arm-rest console for these cars? And is there a way for the instrument panel to display the speed in the LCD display? Thx

There are many different qualities of arm rest I have seen available. Have a look on eBay. They fit into the rear cup holders and are held in by screws and brackets. Haven't got a link to one, but they do exist.

I see you're in the U.S. is the display analogue? With the central LCD display? Note the us cars are quite different from European spec in engine terms.

I saw one in a film last night had some interesting wheel trims but what’s that silly reflector on the front wing all about?

Noticed those reflectors on all US 500's; on the front wheelarch and also on the back. My car bra, which came from the US, has the cutouts. They appear to have a 5W globe in the top of each too. Might be a requirement of local design laws but I've never seen 'em on any other car.

(they're normally orange of course).


Rumour suggest FIAT has pulled the 500 in the US;

The US ruined the MG when they thought the chrome bumpers were not safe so they put those awful black plastic things on them. Thanks California

The side reflectors is a US specific requirement.
