Change fiorino section

Is it possible to change the fiorino production date to 1977- on wards ?
This might encourage new owners to come forward.
At the moment i still feel i'm better off in the qubo section.

Re: Change fiorino section

They are two totaly different cars...so I don't like the idea to expand at all, as I don't know nothing about the new versions, I'm afraid...!

Re: Change fiorino section

When you say different? What do you mean?
They are the same, its just the fiorino has no rear seats or trim!
Same engines,cabs are identical,mine for example has electric windows, air con, bluetooth...look in the MEMBERS GALLERY section,there are pictures of it.

Re: Change fiorino section

Ah I see - there are 3 Fiorinos - the 3rd generation of which is virtually the same as the Qubo.

1st Gen - 1977 to 1988
2nd Gen - 1988 to present
3rd Gen - 2007 to present

It is up to @ben to look into

Re: Change fiorino section

Right, the first gen. based on the 127, the second gen. based on the Uno both were/are build in Brazil and the third gen. based on the Grande Punto and build in Turkey.
I only know something about the first two generations, as I owned both of them.

Re: Change fiorino section

I'd be surprised if it is built on the same chassis as a different chassis size surly

Re: Change fiorino section

It's a fact the corsa d has the same underpinnings as the punto grande.......so
when i took my van to a mate who put my alloys on at a vauxhall garage, looking at the underneath on the ramp it's like looking at a corsa d!
Please bear in mind when looking at a fiorino or qubo they arn't very big,wheel base and track not far off being equal,and with the stiff suspension as standard and the 17'' stillo blade alloy wheels 205 45 tyres wich i had fitted handles like it's on rails.

Seems strange, I'd have thought if GP platform it would share a lot more parts, like hubs etc. and the GP is 100 as its the same parts as the Corsa.

Re: Change fiorino section

I know it's strange but your right.
When i had some alloys off my old mk4 astra van,went to put them on my fiorino to find out they didn't fit [100 pdc]
thats why i went for the blades,although most fiats are 98 pdc, i had trouble getting correct offset the blades just so happen to be near enough spot on. Fiorino is 43.

It is up to @ben to look into
Please can someone talk to this guy Ben and ask him to make a 3rd Gen or Mk 3 Fiorino forum? I've seen several posts saying "it's up to Ben" - where is he?

It will be confusing for any 'old Fiorino' owners seeing new chats about the model come up and then find it's about the new design rather than the old box. I think there are enough chats (not least about 'Luigi') to justify this.

Fingers crossed
