White or black ambience?

Hi everyone - great news.....my Fiat 500 is ready for delivery today. So excited - dont know how I'm going to get through a full days work!!

I've ordered the black ambience for my 1.4 Bossa Nova but wondered what ambience everyone else is ordering, and those that have already received their Fiat 500's - what do you think of the choice of ambience you've gone for?

Re: White or black ambience?

When did you place the order, out of interest?
My 1.2 Bossa Nova is ordered with black and white checked seats and ivory ambiance - hope it's going to look ok, though more worried about my head rubbing against the elec sunroof.

Ivory all the way, uber classy.

In black I think it looks like any other car.

Re: White or black ambience?

I decided on the black as I thought being a girl the wheel would get grubby with fake tan/make up etc!! I do agree that the white looks great tho - was just trying to be practical ;-)

paulmc - I ordered it just 10 days ago, it was the basic spec and I was lucky that one had just arrived into the country. I tried to order one a few weeks ago with Mangoletsi in Cheshire but they messed me around far too much - told me it was ordered, took my deposit, then 3 days later admitted they hadnt ordered it and they couldnt get another availble for months!!

Re: White or black ambience?

You made a good choice! Mine is Bosa Nova with black.

It depends on the colour of the car too, as it has to compliment the body coloured dash. I love the ivory - great styling by Fiat. . but not personally not with the bright white of the dash. . and also thought it may get grubby.

You will be happy!! Keep us posted

I originally thought black as I'm an engineer & didn't fancy an Ivory wheel with black handprints.

However my heart ruled my head & I have the perfect solution......white leather driving gloves ([alan partridge mode on] back of the net [alan partridge mode off]) when my hands are grubby.

White for definate... it wont get that dirty if you wipe it regularly. It just looks so nice, like the originals with the white steering wheel.
