Hi everybody! just picked up a 2013 500 sport manual in Verde Chiaro (light green) recently. Haven't had a chance to drive it much. Thinking about using it as a commuters since I do about 140 miles roundtrip everyday. The wifey picked it out and probably will end up driving it more often but we'll see. Interested in learning more about these little suckers...interesting car to say the least. Its kind of cool.

Hey there, welcome, come on in! The Verde Chiaro is a fab color, I have it too. It's a color that surprisingly doesn't show dust, which could make it the great commuter car. You KNOW you'll be picking up dust, and it's nice to have a car that will help disguise it.

There's another Verde Chiaro owner locally, he has the convertible model. We both love the retro feel of the color. It's a color that both men and women find appealing.

Which interior did you choose? There is black with silvery gray, and brown w/silvery gray.

Hi there. Thanks for the comments..We got the black n silver interior with the sunroof as well. I see all kinds of different colors here and they all look great especially because this car looks like a toy...at least to me. I'll get some pics up soon...hopefully this weekend. .

Haha! That is exactly what one gent said about mine, that it looked like a toy, a toy you could really drive. It set us both to laughing.

I'm thinking back to being a kid and riding in those little cars, like at Disneyland Autobahn or bumper cars or carnival cars. It was a fun time of life, and there's something reminiscent of those cars in the Fiat. The car LOOKS like fun, just standing still. There's that anticipation of getting to go for a drive in this neat car. And seeing other Fiats on the road heightens the joyful feeling I get, it's like seeing others on the same fun ride.

You can take turns driving the car, but you too may find out you each need your own Fiat.

You'll never get to sit behind the wheel again. :nono: Unless she has the key firmly in her hand, and you can maybe make car noises, while sitting in the non-running car.

So, what color are you going to pick out for your 500 Sport? :eagerness:

If I had a choice I think I would settle for either the turbo or abarth models since they drive a little more sportier...I didn't know those models have a limited color selection. We almost got a yellow or white...but she wanted this color. This color is different so for a car like this it works out great.
