Re: Flagship

Thought I'd post on here. Went to the flagship store on Tuesday and thought it was alright. They don't really sell merchandise apart from a couple of ****ty models but does anyone really expect them to? This is what your local parts department are for.

They had lots of 500's including an Abarth and a 500c as well as a Panda 100hp but no Bravo which I thought a bit weird. There was a Grande Punto Abarth there as well which was nice.

I think people need to realise that it's a flagship store and flagship stores aren't about selling iPod holders and mats etc etc. Being in central London the rent on that place is going to be sky high and I think you know what they'd do if faced with the choice of having another car in the showroom that could convince people to buy a whole car OR set aside some warehouse space so people can buy a set of ket covers and some Selenia 5w40 for their 500.

I was a little underwhelmed with the tinyness of it to be honest but I think it does the job well enough

Re: Flagship

Only reason I expected there to be merchandise is I read that there was! On the web site I believe. It says (I quote) :
"The fiat flagship store is the only place in the UK where you can buy Fiat-500 inspired designer products like sweatshirts, jackets and elegant leather handbags. Of course you'll also find shelves packed with official Fiat merchandise"
So if I made a trip there to look at the merchandise and buy some, I would be pretty p**d off if they didnt have any!!!

Well they had a stupid handbag, they had jackets and they also models of the cars.

I think you might be getting confused between merchandise and accessories.

Looking on the Fiat site there's no mention of them stocking accessories.
