Thumbs up hello

just saw 2 days back one fiat 500 in red color in Ghatkopar,Mumbai with temporary number plate.it was looking small and nice but the value of this i think is too high for indian markets as I see they the Fiat company will be able to sell for 2 digit numbers in India in a year thats it.
thats what i think

Who looked cute? Lady or the car?

Anyway, I was going through Autocar and it says Fiat has sold more 500s than anticipated earlier.

Wow. Congratulations Omar, indeed a beautiful car -- I really like this car mostly because it has tremendous mod capability. Can one imagine, 18s, lowered, front kit, HIDs, ICE.. it would be drool material. Anyways, back to reality -- Sweet Ride Brother.

Thanks Guys, yes the car has reached my family and I am awaiting pics.

I will be in India only on the 8th, so will be able to give a detailed review after that.

Once again thanks to all team-bhp fellow member, it was due to this community that I was kept informed about the launch of the 500.

Regards

Cool

Omar, congatulations on your prized acquisition! It's kewl, but can look real mean when sport kitted. Personally, I dig that dashboard and the speedometer.

As regards the premium pricing, that's 'coz the 5oo drives in as a CBU and with much history. Quite a cult car it was. How much of it will matter/appeal to the Indian heartstrings is an altogether different story.

Anyways, I don't think FIAT really expects to do much numbers with this one. Which works well for your exclusivity!

Congratulations, once again!

Yes, that's mine - the only one LOL, the driver was driving it down from Delhi.

OK so the 500 is here !

The Chauffeur delivered it this evening around 5 pm IST i.e. Around 11:30 am here, I called him up to ask how was the feeling, he said it was amazing (I have never driven a 500).My brothers were super excited, one of them even went to the highway and waited there for the car to enter the city premises for around 30 minutes !

My mum had not seen a 500 before (she saw the pics), but when I was talking to her on the phone, she was so excited she was not able to speak properly !

My father took it on a test drive with my mother, one of my brothers and my little niece and nephew (My cousin's children) for a test drive, and as the car is the only one in my town and also in my state (County), my mum said that people were excited to see such a unique little thing on the road, one of the guys even came and asked my father about the car and it's cost !

Now just one more day and then I am off to India and ohh I am so excited and once again here is a list of people I would lie to thank.

My Family (Specially my parents), the guys at Fiat India, my driver, The 500 club in UK (they were awesome) and then finally YOU GUYS ! It was you who answered each and every query of mine and made this dream of mine possible, Cheers and keep zooming !

Regards

Omar

P.S. Oh I was just thinking that all this happened in just a few hours, the coming days are gonna be awesome.

(The pics are not so good as my brother took them with him mobile camera, I will post the good ones once I am in India)
