Re: Fiat 500

it's either jan or feb 2008, hmm, possibly cuter looking, but so far all the reviews of the same drivetrain in both cars heavily favour the panda

Re: Fiat 500

Just seen the first one being prepared for photo shoot in right hand drive and been told it will be crushed afterwards.

Re: Fiat 500

i'll be glad when the launch is out of the way - all the various time and wordplays on '500' that fiat are using, whilst novel orginally, are getting more than a little tedious now!

here's hoping they'll shut the f*** up for 500 hours after the launch - though i doubt it!

They didn't stick that much to it. Otherwise we would have to wait for another 450 years for the launch.

Re: Fiat 500

If you dont like the 500 fine thats your opinion but to repeatedly slag it off is a waste of your time & ours.

Re: Fiat 500

bit touchy tonight arent we?

just because its a 500 forum you dont seriously expect 100% loving for the car surely? if so, then it ceases to be a forum at all!

discussion and differing views are part of what make open forums like this great.
