500 is a girls car....

The word is out that I've bought a Fiat 500 and I'm starting to get some mickey taking that I've bought a girls car - lol

Boys will be boys and the piss taking has now started

Have any other guys had this when driving around in their 500 ? .... or do you get more complements

I'm male by the way

Re: 500 is a girls car....

The PE teacher at my last place got ripped for having one. I think that they can be any but certain features/colours are seen as more feminine... What have you ordered?

Re: 500 is a girls car....

me and my dad "share" our 500 and he doesn't feel like he's driving a girly car, it's retro and really cool
maybe some combinations can be thought of as a little feminine but i think they can suit anyone... i look at our 500 and think it's the perfect car for both myself and my dad.

black 1.2 sport... aww. you can feel a bit more manly in that.

Re: 500 is a girls car....

It is a womans car if you had to choose either way. Sure certain combinations are more girly but come colours and specs are a bit more manly Black I would say is more manly and with 16" wheels they look a bit better

Re: 500 is a girls car....

I never judge a man by the car he drives, i.e. from an "is it a woman's car or not" perspective. I do however judge a man by how he looks after his car.

yeah right I somehow doubted it - black is smart are you getting dark windows?

I`d take no notice and would get one too (i`m a male the last time I looked anyway) and love the 500.

you can laugh at your mates in their vauxhalls or fords - boring yawn..

Re: 500 is a girls car....

Might just be a British macho thing. I was in Sirmione, Lake Garda last week, a very wealthy part of Italy and amongst all the Porsches and Ferraris were absolutely loads of 500s driven by all sorts - young, old, male & female. You shouldn't really give a monkeys about what a few people think.

Re: 500 is a girls car....

Girls generally love the car so perhaps they will be interested in you too

My husband had women flocking around him when out with our daughter when she was just a few days old - reckon same will happen with the 500. Your mates will be jealous then
