Hi Omar,

The Small Beauty looks cool with the stickering, you must be getting stares & envious looks when you are on the road driving this iconic beauty

Keep enjoying the car & keep us posted about the other aspects such as mileage, service costs & most important the competence level of the A.S.S of the dealership.

Hi Karan,

I think if you see the car in flesh you might like it. Saw one of these in the UK with the roof stickers so I also bought them for mine. It was a real pain applying them !! But I hope you like those Italian wing badges

Yup they are expensive. Got a good deal on UK eBay. I also got the stickers custom made, so they are not as expensive as the original ones.

The transparent glass roof is available in the lounge model, mine is a sports one. I could have asked them to put one but it was too expensive and they were asking for more time, I had to wait 5 months for my 500. I never went for the lounge because the seats were made of white cloth and in the sports version they are artificial leather, the genuine leather ones were once again too expensive. I could have got all those options but I don't want to make my dad mad with the super bill !! LOL

I am planning to get the sports body kit, it will cost around Rs. 70,000. I am waiting for a friend from the Fiat 500 UK club to fit his and send me the pics.

Thank you very much. Yup I get the stares and many a times I am the demo guy !! LOL

To be honest, I love this car more mainly due to two reasons, it drives super. The diesel is very powerful and not noisey at all.

Secondly the size, it's so compact and convenient.

Regarding the dealer, there are two of them in Delhi. The one I got mine from HIM motors, I have had some issues with them, had to even complain but lets hope the servicing will be fine.

The first service is due in November.

Regards

Omar

Cheers

Omar

Great Car Mate. A real stunner. Colour is great. I have seen Black 500, thats one smooth good looking babe. Red is really great mate.

But, why use news paper as floor mat?

Look guys what I got for my 500 !! A retro 500 cover. This costs around 450 in the UK (Crazy I know !!!), but I got this brand new one only for 90. I bidded on eBay for it !!

This has the retro 500 printed on it, the car used to come 50 years back.

Cheers

Very very cute, the fairer sex must be digging this cars cuteness!
I noticed you got new 500 side stickers, although i liked the earlier 500 sticker better.

Congratulations on your car Omar. The car is really cute. Looks good in red and I like the stickering on the side.
The car cover is equally cute :-)
