New 500 Sport owner

Just been to local dealer, Chapmans of Pickering North Yorkshire

Girlfriend wanted to see a 500 and we ended up buying one on the spot, they offered a good trade in on Fabia VRS aswell.

Car is a 1.4 16v sport.
Passadona red
Multispoke alloys
Leather Interior

Red Brake Callipers

Was in the show room and going to be demo car on 1st of March but we are now picking it up next saturday. I am a keen forum user so i hope you guys can help us during our 500 adventure!

Howdy and welcome to the best section on FiatForum!

Your spec sounds nice. is it the full leather your has or just the bolsters on the seats?

Re: New 500 Sport owner

Oooh nice little car you're going for! Is it the red demonstrator that you're going for? I couldb't quite gather if that was just the one you were looking at or whether that was the car you were getting!

Another 500er collecting on the 1st It will be a busy time for Fiat dealers

Its the car from the showroom, was going to be a demonstrator but we got in and bought it before they had chance to take it on the road!
I believe the leather covers about 3/4 of the seat with a mesh like material in the centre?

i don't think its leather, it does look like it, it looks more like fake leather!! its the standard grey/black interior thats found on the sport versions.

Yeah, sikersh is right It's actually vinyl, but it's pretty high quality and tactile It also won't age like proper leather and will stay looking mint/as-new in years to come

Re: New 500 Sport owner

I love the standard seats in the Sport, I did contemplate on getting the black leather ones but I couldn't really be bothered with the maintenance of it...making sure its pristene...and also having to shell out another 600 soon convinced me to stay with the standard seats, they look more sporty than the leather seats anyway
