New 500 on order!

Hello folks,

Well that was quite a day. Having spent two and a half hrs at each one of two dealers in the Midlands, I placed an order for a 500 Sport 1.2 in Crossover black, 16" 0 spoke alloys, elec. glass s/r, chrome mirrors and chrome kit, 50/50 rear seat with headrestraints, and white stripes. Dealer did me a favour in recommending I get the petrol 1.2 rather than 1.3 diesel due to the mileage I do annually. He pointed out road tax is the same as 1.3 diesel, and also difference in mpg is 13.

I might change my specification at one point?

I've been told delivery will be early May.

Can't wait, while I'm out and about in my (soon to go) Streetka!!

Grays in Warwick, and then Coventry Fiat.

Nice tea they made, whilst I pored over the specification!

Re: New 500 on order!

I know what you mean. I spent nearly a week dithering over the specification; I originally had the 1.3 diesel in mind but ended up ordering the 1.2 petrol. The sales guy advised having asked how many miles I did every year.

So in a way, I managed to undercut the budget. Top marks for him!

Not only there's the factory options, but the dealer fit extras and I haven't even started on it!! Never mind Fiat brand clothing - was at the Geneva Show and they had totty (both sexes!) modelling Fiat branded clothing. Will be there next month and I might buy some Fiat clothing...they do offer Fiat branded racing boots
