Just had a 500 bruchure delivered

Wooo! Just got a brochure for the 500 through my door. Well it's more of a book really. Spiral bound with quite thick pages. Made a hell of a racket. Actual dimensions are 210mm(width inc. spiral) x 190mm(height) x 8mm (thick)

Wow! Scratch and sniff on the pages for the fragrance dispenser thingie.

A definite step up from the usual brochures.

Regards,
Tony.

Re: Just had a 500 bruchure delivered

I got two, have you noticed one of the pages is in upside downLOL.
I like the really bad drawing at the back of an old 500 superimposed onto a new one, theyve changed the whole look of the old one to fit the new... very very odd.

Re: Just had a 500 bruchure delivered

Got mine through the door today, no intention of buying one but makes for a good read. Pity they couldnt of put the same effort into the 1ooHP brochure, a paltry 2 pages for that one.

All the pages seem the right way up in mine. Which of yours is upside down?

Fiat have obviously heard about nuovapanda slagging off the 500 on this forum.

In his overeagerness to indulge in some more 500 bashing dear old nuovapanda has failed to realise the image is not a distorted drawing of the old 500 but a true image of the optional car cover for the new car.

A car cover the same size as the original car wouldn't fit the new car, rather defeating the object.

Re: Just had a 500 bruchure delivered

really? So, Fiat are so embarased at the look of the new 500 that they give you a car cover to hide it under, making people think you have a real one... LOL!
You asked for that!

Re: Just had a 500 bruchure delivered

They value the new car so much you have to pay almost 400 for the privilege.
