Trust me, it does well worth the 100 to make sense of those black bumps.

Re: It's Here Now

Gahhh I know it's worth the £100, I'm just trying to make myself feel better after my foglights and 16" alloys fiasco. It's still a touch sore!

Re: It's Here Now

Provided the front isn't in direct sunlight, the bumps can often go un-noticed. This 500 looks fantastic without the fogs...



And anyway, you still get the bumps whether you have foglights or not. At least without the foglights it's a smoother finish. It's also more similar to the Trepiuno concept

I would have gone for foglights if I could. The day I was going in to add them to my order my status went to fixed. A week earlier than expected, we thought we had loads of time.

I still don't think fogs are the be all and end all on the 500. It doesn't effect the overall look of the car that much.

And yes, Chazure is the best colour. It will look effing sweet.

Re: It's Here Now

After going to london yesterday to see the new fiat showroom and being able to see a sport and lounge nearly side by side !!I have decided to change from a sport to a lounge 'without' the fogs. Personally I think the bumps look better as 'bumps' rather than tiny little fairy lights set in them, so I'm with suasexed.

Also saw the opening sunroof....hated it,it looked really ugly open in my opion,so glad I cant afford the extra. As for the showroom it was amazing! went with my son who couldnt take his eyes off the sales girls, altho I knew far more than them,they were dressed in spray on white lycra trousers and tops all blonde and about 6ft tall,Tom was just speechless and he also helped me decide on my choice when I could tear him away from oggling!! Off to order it in a hour soooo really excited

Re: It's Here Now

Agree about the sunroof when open, they do look horrible and are very noisy too. Youve done the right thing re the Lounge, so much more retro IMO
I have to go to London tommorow, wheres this showroom?
