Yeah,, but i also miss the things i know could be there but just arent,, like the ambient lights on the handles,, just a cover,,

& the space cut out of the plastic beside the boot courtesy light for the 12v output,,

The tail gate new opening mechanism,, not on the active

The tom tom port,, not on the active,,

Everything else seems to be A OK,,

the badge doesnt press in on the boot on the active

Its a shame about the TomTom Port, though if you didnt buy a tomtom to go with it it'd be abit of a "wtf is that?" every time someone got in the car, and atleast you've got a space big enough for a pair of sun glasses etc on the dash

You'll get used to the GSI, if you follow what it says it'll certainly give you alot more MPG, i like it because i often "cruise" at higher than 2k RPM and the GSI just reminds me to change, watching the instant consumption + GSI is a good combo (and watching the road ofc)

S&S is abit mind blowing, even in mine 3 weeks later it feels wrong to be sitting in a car with air con / radio / dash etc lit up but no sound at all coming from the engine.... that said, ive learnt not to let it kick in all the time, only when i know im stopping kinda thing, and never when im at the head of the traffic lights


Car looks good, much the same as my Eleganza from the outside (and most of the inside), and i agree with MrBoney its good that fiat use a different insert for cars without the fog lights, it would bug me if there was 2 rings on the bumper!


Anyways, Grats on the car

How long have they been able to do that for? There still that rule about 20+miles on the clock and the car can't be classed as new?

I got 2000 of the list on this but not sure of Fiat were running an offer,, i know they had a March offer on finance,, but then next month may offer summit better,, chance i take i suppose,, was not planning to change my GP untill August / Sep,, but this is better now.
I ordered an Eleganza with full leather which they said is whats going to delay it the most, I also got the skydome roof and the style pack (rear electric windows, cornering fogs, and matching side protective mouldings). Basically apart from the aluminium kick plates I ordered everything optional for the Eleganza, so my wait is AGES *sits hear crying lol*

Edit: Also spent 700 on a numberplate for it, but woth every penny IMO!

I still cant believe you spent 700 on a numberplate, but didnt order the 80 kickplates which really add abit of style!

Re: Evo Active Just arrived

Was just thinking, brand new car, like 0 miles,, yet when you pick it up, the fuel warning light is on????!!!! i know i am contracted to 10L,, but surley if 11 or 12L takes it out off the red then that would look so much better,,

Apart from the standard discount, i did not manage to get anything out of them,, tried for mats or a least discounted mats but got nought,, i would have pressed them more if my trade in was'nt needing repairs,, i take very good care of my cars,, especially i try to keep the interior in good order,,

My last GP i had for 24 months & in that time i gave it 2 proper washes,,

Now,, theres method to my madness,, were i live theres constant dirt, dust, road salt & the like,, if i washed the car every weekend the fresh paint would be subjected to this attack constantly,, but i feel if the layer of dirt & grime is left to coat it,, nothing else can get through,,

Obviouslly if it got real black i would was it,, that turned out to be once a year,,

Dont think im lazy i have a power hose ready & awaiting anytime i need it, i have had too many cars were the previous owners take them through those automated car washes,, GGRRR you can see the scratch swirls,, i hate that,,

a good layer of polish is the shield between paint & dirt, so i gave mine a good cleaning with a good coating of polish to protect, now its just cleaning constantly to keep it looking good & polish every couple of weeks.

And yeah, the dealership were very stingy with deals for me too, i managed to get mats & a full tank out of em but thats only because i went to 5 or 6 dealerships and threatened to go back to the other if they dont give me the mats/fuel :P
