Ok guys, so I have been driving the 500 for around 2 days now and it's amazing, I love the power of the diesel, I am not much a techincal guy so wont be able to tell a lot about the tech stuff, but I love everything about it and am posting some new pics.

Every second guy is turning and looking !!, it's like being followed by paparazzi !! sometimes it's a bit annoying !!

Anyways I also had to distribute loads of "Laddus" everywhere. LOL

Cheers

Omar

Congrats on the lovely 500.

I like that steering. I like small, sporty steering's and that's where the Palio loses with it's biggish steering wheel.

Do you find it comfortable to see the speedometer and tachometer while driving or do you end up confusing the two? The design is neat but I am wondering if it's practical as well.

I can't see the power window button on the passenger front door. Whats up with that?

PS: I LOVE that gear knob!

Amazing pics! Looks really nice! Congratulations!

Couple of quick questions!

1. Where is the key? Is it integrated with that fob? Italian flag in it too :P

2. What are those black rubber strips on the front and the back bumper. Did you fix it? Or was it to protect the car when inside the shipping container?

3. Are those seat trims OE or you got 'em done? Seem really comfortable and like they will hold you down during fast cornering. Is the black art leather or genuine?

Enjoy!

It is not Chintichau. It is "Cinquecento"! That's exactly how five-hundred is pronounced in Italian! Cinque (chin-kwi) - five and Cento (chento) - hundred!
