Luigi!

Finally got round to posting some photos of my lovely Luigi!
These were from I first brought him home sorry about the lack of photos.
Hes a month old but I feel like he could use some jazzing up to make him abit more different, I have the chrome mirror covers to put on, once I work out how. But cant think what else to put on him.
Help please

I wouldn't be a fan of chrome mirrors and prefer the body coloured ones.

A few ideas...

Chrome Bonnet line

An example here

Italian badge on front wing

Chrome number plate surround

Example here on the first picture.

Valve caps

Interior wise there are gaiters with the italian colours and these are not too difficult to fit.

I'm afraid that if you want your car to be different/unique/stand out from the crowd and you bought a white Fiat 500, then you bought the wrong car.

Personally I would just revel in the cameraderie of kindred spirits, all driving our white 500s. Heck, some will even wave at you as you pass them, witbh a little encouragement.

You can then rest secure in the knowledge of your inherent good taste.

Re: Luigi!

I drive a metallic blue 500 devoid of chrome. I haven't seen another 500 of any type for a few weeks now. People around here think it's a Nissan Micra (just this evening, the petrol station cashier said "pump number 6? The little Nissan?")

I'm actually quite jealous of white 500s (only ever seen one in NZ) and think they look great dressed up with most of the chrome (but not the A-bar) and thin Italian stripes (green/white/red) under the windows. I think the white 500 is the one to have for retro appeal. I see an expensive and hyper fast modern BMW lurking nearby, plus a true slow old British sportscar (Triumph TR?), so it would seem that all motoring bases are covered

Re: Luigi!

Hi Tiffy Rose,

I would definitely go for a pair of front Italian flag badges, they're nicely made enamelled metal badges. Have you got side rubbing strips fitted? You can put a variety of different badges on the rear ends of the rubbing strips, including Italian flag 500 script badges.

I might think about a (very) few chrome bits here and there too.

Whatever, I hope you really enjoy you're lovely little car, as much as we enjoy ours.

I am thinking of getting the t bar it looks quite smart, also the flag badges the more I see them the more I think they look pretty neat!
And yes that is a Triumph TR3! Its a lovely car for country roads & a BMW 530 D Msport! But alas they are my parents cars not mine!

Here is an example with the A-bar, Italian flags, chrome mirror backs and the chrome bonnet line and a picture of the one that I had.

Italian flags are a must !

Nice TR3.

Re: Luigi!

Your best mod will be to get your hair drier out, warm up that nasty dealer sticker, and peel the free advert off.

It might look a little different on the BNW. The colour that in those examples are Pearlescent white (FW).
