Hi all,

Trading in car for new Fiat and tempted by these colours at the moment - Epic Blue, Bordeaux and special anniversario blue/green shade -can't decide!

Which do u like?!

Blue 😍😍😍

Blossom4538 Mon 23-Oct-17 12:14:07

Not going for convertible this time so ignore - will be hatchback - which colour?!!

MadisonMontgomery Mon 23-Oct-17 12:14:47

I have the mint green & I love it - but someone at work has the Bordeaux and it is stunning irl.

I would go for the blue/green (3rd photo)

I’m about to get my 4th 500 - love them!

Min is the blue colour and i absolutely love it.

Blossom4538 Mon 23-Oct-17 12:30:26

Thank you! More images ....

Blossom4538 Mon 23-Oct-17 12:31:11

The Epic Blue looks diff shades in various lighting/images. Haven't seen in flesh. How would u describe it?

trixymalixy Mon 23-Oct-17 12:54:21

It's hard to describe. I would say a dark metallic teal colour.

juneybean Mon 23-Oct-17 12:54:56

Blue or Green!

CanIBuffalo Mon 23-Oct-17 12:58:30

Blue. By a mile.

Blossom4538 Mon 23-Oct-17 14:28:05

Thank you! Anyone have any photos of other colours or their fiat?

Here's mine!! Baby Blue, I think it's called.

Rainshowers Tue 24-Oct-17 19:23:45

Love that blue 😍
I used to have a white one, I loved it but didn't love having to take the wheels off my icandy pram every time I put it in the boot.

The bluey-green is lovely and retro- you can just imagine it whizzing round those little narrow streets in an Italian village!

Blossom4538 Tue 24-Oct-17 23:44:32

Love the old baby blue!

So, I think it's between the blue/green - which I've now discovered is called Riviera Green and the Epic Blue....

Our current Fiat is a white convertible. Love Fiat 500s!

Go for an Abrath. Same as a 500, but sports car...

Blossom4538 Thu 26-Oct-17 15:29:10

Just seen all of the colours in the flesh at a dealership - so nice and I'm confused now! I think probably between Epic Blue and the Riviera Green (blue/green shade) but also like Bordeaux and the pearlescent off white!!! Too indecisive!

I like the third colour, blue/green. You could also consider yellow, only because we used to play 'yellow car' when the DC were little, and a Fiat 500 also counted as equal to a yellow car and if we saw a yellow 500 it was 10 million points and the car erupted with joy. grin I used to have the creamy-white colour, with stickers. I miss it so much.

buggerthebotox Thu 26-Oct-17 20:39:35

I find the drive a bit rough. And I can't seem to keep the seats clean. sad

ChippyMinton Thu 26-Oct-17 20:49:24

Love the blue/green. Love them all actually. I have the big 500X in red and I love it.

maximus55 have you driven the Arbath? I had one as a courtesy car and it was very loud. Looked cool though.

To be pedantic it’s a warm hatch, deffo not a sports car!

I have seat covers from a Ford Ka, which fit perfectly (!)
I like the pastel colours better than the above choices. The blue in OP looks black & I don't like black (mine is black).

buggerthebotox Fri 27-Oct-17 08:02:17

How much more expensive to run is an Abarth?

I don't find mine particularly underpowered, actually, with a 1.2 engine. (Lounge version).
