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?
Although the speedometer and the tachometer are integrated together, they seem fine !! At least for me.

The power window buttons are located near the gear knob

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!
1. when the large fiat button is press on the key, it pops open and the key comes out from the side, it's not integrated like the Mercedes keys, the key came originally in black but I changed the cover to red, the keyring was a gift from a Fiat 500 club back in UK.

2. They are the there for protecting the car when it's in transit from Poland.

3. Those seat trims are factory fitted and very comfortable and does indeed hold my rear LOL !! on speedy corners. The steering is leather wrapped but the seats are artificial leather, but look real. The leather option was too expensive, almost a lakh more, so I left it, but these seats look amazing too.

Cheers

Omar

CONGRATS!! cute little Italian beauty. I wish they were manufactured here rather than being imported CBU. Would have given the current premium hatchbacks quite a run. Wonderful! congrats once again and you could distribute some laddus here as well

Congrats!!! No doubt it will give current hatchbacks a run. Actually I don't think 500 can be put in the same class as the hatchbacks. We need to bring in VW beetle or Audi TT to stand against it.

I wonder why VW is trying to keep beetle out of India? Perhaps to introduce it with a bang and as a showstopper? Or is it already in the works and I am just lagging behind on the latest India auto news?

Anyways, post a note if you are visiting Bangalore in your 500. I don't mind showing you around the city...for no cost. It will be my pleasure )))
