Hello all.

Just wondering for anyone that has a fiat with one on, does anyone use there city button.

The only time i have ever used mine was when i came out of hospital, and when i came out from giving blood (twice).

:confused:

I used mine every time I was in a multi-storey car park; so cool to go down the exit ramps of eight levels using just one finger!

I meant cool in the sense of impressing my big gay poof friends (of who I have many) obviously. :D

Hehe. The steering in the Stilo is light enough anyway.

You can tell the car was designed with the steering wheel on the left though because it is on the left of the gearleaver :confused:

I often find sometimes that my passengers press it just to see what it does.

You're not alone!


It kinda reminds me of those arcade car racing machines, where you have a real dislocated feeling from the car. Wierd, but strangley appealing...

Hehe.

Does the Panda 100 sport have a city button still, or did they replace it with the Sport button - i want one of them.

And i wish i could turn my city button into a turbo boost button :D

I've a few of those but the problem is that they are so gay that they don't get the whole mechanical stuff going on and think that all cars have them buttons...

Like wen you can turn your steering wheel it hits the opposite lock so easily it makes a loud clanging noise :confused:

is that the button that did naff all on a rolling road? :devil:
Yep! Although it has nothing to do with BHP, instead it tightens UP the steering and makes the throttle more responsive :rolleyes: - a rolling road measures none of these aspects :spin:

Sports buttons have always been a mystery to me.

I don't want to have to press a button, I want the steering always tightened up, and the throttle response always to be good.

Take the BMW M6 for example, the BHP can be varied and downgraded from say 500. why? I always want 500bhp thats why I spent thousands on the car.

If anyone doesn't want their button, please can they send it to me for use in the Bismarck, I have found muscles I never knew existed since buying that car :cry:

i have started to use the girly button recently, purely because i want to be able to fling the steering from lock to lock with one fling. . .
