My 500x- Fiat's outnumbering fords

Kuga is away :( car was wasted sitting about 6 days a week so downgraded ( halfing the monthly costs) to this which means I'm back in my beloved fiat again as my daily runner.

Bought this one so it's a keeper.
It's a 500x 1.6 multijet cross plus- top spec, £20 tax and 60mpg. That'll do me

Plans- Alfa wheels and lower it and get my plates on it. That's really it.
Time and money will be concentrated on the punto. Now I have more free cash.

Built in same factory as the punto 21 years apart, hope this lasts as long as that has

Good to see it's arrived. I'll be interested to hear if you manage the 60 mpg cos mine only ever gets that on the motorway and I only average mid 40s for my commute. Admittedly that's mostly unlisted back roads though :lol:

Good going. I got 60 mpg when we did the trip to the Highlands a few years back including the run over Applecross. Other than that I definitely only get that with motorway driving. The 1.6 mjet appears to be most frugal with steady driving and that is not my usual style :D
