I think I'd be happy with any of the colours as I really just like the car.

My plan is to buy the car over 34months but, if like u, I want to change early, I'm determined not to give back the car on the cheap. I would rather buy the car on borrowed money and then sell it myself. My dealer says that 4x4 pandas don't hang about, can be very popular in the coming winter months, so this way could work for me in 34months time. Make the final payment, sell the red giant and get a fresh new one, again using the privilege scheme, maybe with a cool new metallic paint. More than likely, I will keep this one for many years.

Hope you get a top deal. Try to beat my 80p interest��

Re: Cross 0.9 TwinAir 90hp

I'd probably go for the green. It would have been my choice but the misses was taken by the Antarctica and it's her car.

I'd still go for the regular 4x4 but can totally understand why people would go for the Cross, or indeed the Trekking.

I do not want to tempt fate at all but it would be interesting to have just a bit of snow.

The misses took the Antarctica out in the horrendous rain this afternoon. One reason we got this is that I think that it is safer in adverse conditions than the 500.

I managed to get one quote using the configurator that ended up with a minus figure for the interest Still not sure how I managed that, but I reckon it's probably down to the final 285 fee.

Am I missing something, I can't see how to get the configuration tool to show values for privilege?

It does look really special in green. The contrast between all that black trim & the paint is less, which on one hand is a good thing but its a Cross, so in your face works for me.

Just got a hold of a picture from my friend/fiat dealer, its the other colour that the cross is available in. This must be quickest cappuccino to go on the road!
Is anyone mad enough to buy it or a cross in that colour?

Re: Cross 0.9 TwinAir 90hp

I actually quite like that but then I am colour blind. I also liked the "primer" grey the Abarth was/is available in and once came within a hairs breath of ordering one with the Sabelt seats and special Zorst. Ended up with an Alfa GTA though, a very different animal indeed.

The configurator on fiat.co.uk isn't for using with the PPS exact figures, you just have to represent the figures.
FDC = 1400 PPS.FDC = 3250
MAX CUSTOMER DEPOSIT = 5340 PPS MAX CUSTOMER DEPOSIT = 3490
So if you have zero actual deposit, enter 1850 as the deposit, this represents the total FDC of 3250.
The figures from this point are very very close between PPS & normal fiat deal.
Try taking the months to 34 and the miles up. My lowest interest on the cross with my options was 34p.
The deal I approached my dealer with was 2.45 int, but with the fiat PPS, FGA FINANCE came back with 0.80.
Your situation seems more complicated due to the other car not really being a trade in, as FGA own it until you buy it. As you've only had it one year, maybe you should try to end the contract, take the hit and then save 1850 over the current fiat normal deal.
I got a great deal as I put in 3400 deposit, 90 short of the max, only over 34mths and 12k miles per year. The total I pay fiat for a 17135(inc285) cross is 13885.80.

The fiat config defaults to regular finance (premier hp). You press the button for low cost finance.

Oops😇

Just checked out the Nu Blu that Bundes mentioned was available on the 500 cult, why isn't this available for Trekking/4x4/Cross? It's a cracking colour, suit the Panda down to the ground.

The trekking can be very tricky when using the configurator, it only shows the premium HP. You have to set it for 48months and low deposit and then i-deal appears like magic!!!

Deeyup, through your posts and advice, I got myself addicted to the configurator and monitoring the Fiat PPS, an addiction that has got me a cross for a bargain price.
Have u not shifted your 4x4 yet?

I think I would have went for the black if fiat had went for the retro black with orange trim. Hey, it would look good with your boat behind you☺
Of all the fiat guys on here, you should get urself a black cross! You always have good info, ahead of most. Your fuel info made me think twice (many times) about the TA but your info on the TA also helped me pick the TA.
Deeyup belongs in a fiat, not a leaf.

They're saved on my work computer so I'll have to play around with it again to see if I can remember what permutation I used. My figures were for a 4x4 rather than a Cross, so the sum borrowed is lower, which may explain the difference. I agree that once you start playing around with that finance planner, it becomes addictive!

Was this on the cross?
I can only use the figures I know to explain:
OTR 15945
OPTIONS 905
OTR + OPT 16850
FEE 285
TOTAL 17135
LESS FIAT DEPOSIT CONTRIBUTION 3250
CUSTOMER PAYS 13885 PLUS INTEREST
TOTAL I PAY 13885.80
I virtually bit fiats hand off😯

So can you explain yours in a similar way as the configurator doesn't allow negative interest. I think you have forgotten about the 1400 saving.
