Welcome to the forum and thanks for posting those pictures. I love the 850 sedan. I had a couple of those a long time ago. Yours looks in great condition.

Always interesting to see the same spec vehicles in different countries. The chrome around the fog lights, clear turning blinker lights (not legal in the U.S.) everything else is the same.

What color interior did you get with the cream exterior?

Hello! With this color, Grigio Arte, I got the black and grey interior. This is the Opening Edition in which all the FWD are Grigio Arte. The Opening Edition for the 4WD one are all red. In Sweden the turning lights must be clear with orange color on the lamp. The chrome around the fog lights are not standard. Fitted by myself.

Thanks for the images! The pictures look as if they should be Fiat advertisements, they look very good, very professional! (next time move the car a touch out from the shadow on the rear end)

Landscaping and home are amazing! Loving the curved mail area with the linear home design. And how the home with it's right angles brings out the curves in the 500X, and visa versa. It's a treat for the eyes!

Your older Fiat looks brand new! You must be very kind to your cars to keep up the appearance, any tips for the rest of us?

Actually, everything looks immaculate.

Tell us more about the chrome around the fog lights. I'm generally not one for extra chrome but THIS looks fabulous.

Thankyou for your reply! Yes, I always treat my cars very well. I traded in a 2009 Subaru Impreza 2.0 Diesel for my Fiat 5600X and the dealer told me that he had 3 potential customers for the Subaru even before he got the car. It was sold the same day I left it! I also am pleased bye the look of the chrome around the fog lights. I ordered from England and they are original Fiat parts. In my way to see things I thought that it was to "dark" on the bottom part of the cars "face".

Hello! Yes, they are replicas with the exact look of the old one's. In 2013 the protection of the design went out for Campagnolo after 40 years and I bought them from a company in Cremona, Italy, that started production. Not magnesium any longer but alloy.

Nice! Well done! I wonder how many folks will do a double-take before they realize what they are seeing in the wheels. A shout back to the '80s, I reckon ;)

We have been 'threatening' to take OverSeas Delivery of a Volvo for over 10 years(a number of new Volvos in the family during that time). For one reason or another, we never made it to Sweden to pick up a new car! The purchase of our 500L will put that on hold for another couple of years(our other car is the C70...no more new ones... :( ) ; but perhaps we will make it some day!

Lovely car and impeccable perfect home. I wish I had the motivation to keep my home so perfect. Loving Sweden. My daughter went to high school there as an exchange student.

i really like those wheels on the X. to me, the wheel design really gives the white body color a classy, refined, sophisticated look.

Great looking car and well kept house, i really enjoy the Scandinavian design of your home.

It seems the X is doing very well in Europe, how about Sweden?

Why is the X sold with reflector headlights in certain countries? Anyone have the answer? Curious.

Not an authority, but usually it has to do with various government regulations regarding lighting in sovereign nations.
