I am happy to see there is a forum for such a cool little car. Although I don't drive it much (yet) I do enjoy looking at it. Once I got word that Fiat would be releasing this car in July (for my area anyway) I had been patiently waiting for its arrival. My sales rep called me the day the truck arrived (Tuesday July 12th.) I got off work, went straight to the dealer and traded my Fiat 500 Pop, Along with some cash and drove home with it. I was the first to purchase one here. I really wanted the manual transmission but the automatic is working well for me. I am not sure that I would have enough room for my legs to operate the clutch.
