Hey All,

I've been a reader of this forum for a couple of years. Lots of great info! Had to sell my beloved 500 Electric due to a change in job. (range)
While I miss the single gear, instant zip of the little e, I'm really loving my x. I found a nice couple selling one with 28k miles.

This is my 4th Fiat in all. (go figure, my name's Tony :friendly_wink:) Years ago I had a 4-door, 5 speed Brava and after that I had a little '79 Spider rag top.

Anyway, here is my new baby. (killer surf mobile!)

Take care,

Tony

Yup, they did. The main thing I had to detail was the engine compartment. (I love clean engine compartments!) :hurt:

Not so much here in central Texas where it has precipitated for the whole week! Our cars do look very nice when clean! The white is actually more interesting than our previous silver L.
Looks like you have the slightly older brother to our Elle:

Yep, the consistent precip is challenging; imagine how tough it would be in a dark color?!!! :hurt:

So true, right now my wife has racks on her golf but I'm trying to pick out a good set for my car. (for now I take the x when I go surfing alone with my shortboard because it fits inside :02.47-tranquillity:)

Anybody had luck finding a good rack fit for the 500x?

Wish I could have a rack but I can't live without a sunroof.
