This is a -35mm drop which hasn't settled yet

My US spec rear mudflaps arrived today so got them fitted.
Was an absolute doddle to fit, why fiat don't offer these here I don't know, anyway I think the mudflaps make the car look like its a wee bit lower

Re: My venezia blue cross plus

They look good. Rather tempted myself.
Did you get charged any duty in this country at all?

Re: My venezia blue cross plus

Did Fiat only do that blue (Venezia) for the 500X?

I like it but I can't get a good idea of the actual colour... in all Autotrader / garage ads and the FIAT online catalogue the colour looks different all the time between photos... interior shots of the dashboard always look much brighter and lighter - like an "electric blue"...

Few updates- itís spent a couple of days in work due to non starting. We though it was the battery, but thatís fine.
Something was draining it so fiat technical suggested 3 software updates, one for the ecu, bcm and keyless entry which seems t have cured it so far.
Then it was vibrating horibly at idle so engine mounts were replaced and what a difference now- itís like a new car.
Also purchased a set of clim air wind deflectors and potentially new alloys on the horizon.....

Re: My venezia blue cross plus

My battery was draining recently, wouldnt start or anything, It went in on a tow truck and the guy who replaced the battery said some models have a thing where the radio randomly comes on even when the car's turned off and there's nobody in it. He couldn't be sure but thought the radio was on when the car go to the garage.

As for the colour topic, the colours of blue and red change a lot due to the ambient lighting. Just look at the red's on autotrader or something. Sometimes it looks deep red matt, sometimes medium red gloss, and at other times quite light almost the other red with a tinge of orange they had on the opening edition (which I wasn't a fan of). Blue seems to be the same, albeit less noticeably.
