Various Fiat's around Southampton

Hi, recently I've seem loads of Bravo's, Punto's, Abarth versions and of course 500's round the Southampton area. Just loads of Fiat's in general seem to be showing up. More so the Bravo's and Punto's but obviously the 500's as nearly everyone has one!

Just wondered how many of you are on here? I drive past a guy with a beard in a red 500 every morning. Think it's a cabriolet. He is always shortly followed by 2 Abarth 500's. One in the grey colour, fantastic colour.

Used to drive past a guy in an red Alfa GT every morning and he used to wave without fail.

Re: Various Fiat's around Southampton

I used to go from Fair Oak to Southampton in 2008 red Grande Punto T-Jet now i go from Fair Oak to Chandlers Ford in a black 2009 Grande Punto Abarth!
I have also noticed lately Fiat cars are becoming quite common place, part of the reason i went for the Abarth.

That's a nice car you've got there. Probably seen you around as I live in Fair Oak as well.

Re: Various Fiat's around Southampton

I've got a Stilo Abarth and go from Southampton to Fareham each day. The Punto Abarth seems quite good... probably a lot better on the fuel.

Not done any long journeys in it yet so cant really comment on mpg. To be honest just loving the extra power at the mo, very point and squirt! woohoo!

I have a red GPS T-jet, drive from Southampton (Dibden/Hythe) to Fareham pretty much everyday ! Where do you park?

Re: Various Fiat's around Southampton

Sorry for the majorly long delay in replying. I wasn't exactly paying attention and then went on holiday.

Without trying to turn this into a thread about mpg, I did a trip to York the other week and averaged 34.8mpg on the way there, but what was with the cruise control set at 70mph. The extra power is great, especially when going from a car with little to one with lots. Although I don't get many chances to use it, as I feel the bright yellow acts as a homing beacon for the Police. What sort of power/0-60 time does yours have?

I have a feeling I've seen one of those on the M27. And I saw a similar looking car in Totton ASDA yesterday. I park at the Cams Hall Estate, how about you?

Probably haven't seen your car then. I start work at 09:00. So if for some crazy reason I decide to throw away my lay in and start work extremely early one day, I may catch a glimpse. Although I've worked in Fareham for the last 2 years, I still don't know where things are... including the Red Lion Hotel lol.

Haha I've worked in Fareham for a year and I'm the same! The only reason I visit here is for work so it's in and out! It's near the shopping centre, past cafe tusk (Indian)

Re: Various Fiat's around Southampton

I generally just come here for work, but I've sometimes found myself wandering around the shops (both Fareham and Portsmouth). So do you go to any of the Southampton/New Forest/Hampshire car meets?
