The "fridge" amuses me, because if you turn the heating on anything slightly warm (in mine anyway) it heats right up, turning your perfectly chilled coke can into a nasty warm disgusting can of sugar.

Exactly. Very poor design that. On the Stilo you had a little vent blocker to turn it off, so you didn't have a piping hot can of Coke

Now that would be a small sneaky mod for the Bravo, a vent blocker for the can cooler.
Mods I made to my Bravo (in order):
- hand brake plastic :https://www.fiatforum.com/bravo/3113...plastic-2.html
-install cruise control
- hood lifters https://www.fiatforum.com/bravo/2508...t-lifters.html
-install aux..if not fitted.
-DIY shortshift : https://www.fiatforum.com/bravo/3402...t-shifter.html
-Install a Stilo 12v plug in the back for the back passengers and can also be used if i have something in the trunk... will post pictures soon.
-Install a second lamp in the trunk .. originally from a Stilo.. but is the exact part as the Bravo.. so now i have one on the left and one on the right... also i still need to wire that and take some pictures.

Another light related feature is the sidelights, say for instance you park with your car half on a curb. Turn the engine of and set the lights to the sidelight setting, then put the indicator stalk to the side that you want the sidelights on. This will turn on only the sidelights on one side

Im thinking on doing this with the ciggy and 2 usb lighter combo to make it more user friendly for the rear passengers, how hard is it to remove the middle shroud to rung the cables?

Help me to understand what you want to do.
Do you want to take some wires from the existing 12 socket and run the under the center console and mount a new 12v soket and 2 USB on the back of the center console somewhere under the rear vents?

Sorry for poor description lols

Yeah basically that, just need to know where the screws are holding everything together then it's plain sailing from there on in

Re: Small Mods and Hidden Features

I think that to do that it would be enough to just pull up on the gearstick gaiter then you could access the 12v socket wires and connect to them.
At the back you pull towards the rear on the piece below the vents, then fish the wires through.

Re: Small Mods and Hidden Features

I pull out cables for 12V socket-one is in the trunk, one behind of center console under vent, one is in glove compartment.
I removed that one by gear stick
