I have been researching on this site for quite a while and I just wanted to say a quick thank you to all the members for sharing their knowledge and experience. The lease deal was a no-brainer. It ends up being less than I paid for gas for my old SUV that I use as a daily driver.

$999 down after dealer fee's, tax, first months payment, etc. it was $1850 out the door.
$199 a month for 36 months @ 12,000 miles a year. After options and tax it came out to $230 a month total.

So far the car has been a blast to play with. I would love to get some white 17inch abarth rims soon... I bought this car to save $$$ yet my addiction to modding will probably get the best of me.

I went to the Bob Baker Fiat in Carlsbad after work wanting to test drive the 500e, but walked out with keys to a brand new 500e. The deal is very similar to the ad from Mossy Fiat http://www.mossyfiat.com/specials/new.htm which is 0 down (not even DMV transfer) and $199/month + tax. I did get one with the eSport package and Sunroof which bump the payment a little higher. Overall I think it's a great deal for every day commute.

Bob Baker Fiat was also the source of our 500e with sport package, and sunroof.
The promotional deal makes great sense.

All so wonderful! Congrats to everyone. The 500e has to be one of the coolest cars on the planet. No one else does it like Fiat.

Congrats Jlbfiat! Yeah I saw that one on the lot. But wife thinks the color is too catchy, so we settled with a more conservative Luce Blue with the same options as yours.

This is my wife's car and not a color I would choose.
She is happy with it, and that's the most important thing......

It's such a great color though! I know, color is subjective and can be highly personal.

The retro blue with the orange, or with the white (on the e or on the 1957 edition) look incredible. I haven't seen the retro blue with black exterior accents yet, bet that looks good too!

Nobody else is doing colors like this. They make the classic colors, that are always on favorite lists, like black, white, red, silver/gray. And then they risk it all by putting out colors nobody else is using and don't show up on popularity lists for the most part. Those annual car color preferences for various countries never favor orange or green or brown.

Fiat brings out two greens, light and olive. I have the light green. They bring out a brown and a tan. And the 500e in orange!

You can browse the top five colors in one HUGE picture over here, listed for US, Asia Pacific, Europe, South America:
http://www.axaltacs.com/corporate/en_US/newsroom/news-releases/six-decades-of-automotive-color.html

Blue hasn't been in the top five for years. Fiat has had many blues. And I will just bet that Fiat will bring back a coral. Our cars would look spectacular in a coral, especially the tiny coral swatch in the picture at the link. I can see that in California. Or Florida. Along a coast somewhere.

Still might not be a color for everyone, but there are a whole lot of color-starved people that would LOVE to have coral or retro blue or turquoise. Colors can make us very happy. Glad to hear your wife is happy, it'll make a difference every single day!
