    New member, prospective buyer here from Canada


    I'm Hugo, I'm from Québec City, and I currently drive a 2014 Mercedes GLK 250.

    I wish I could introduce myself as a Fiat owner, but that's not the case.

    If all goes well, I would like to change that though, as I have my eyes set on owning a convertible in the near future.

    In the past I've owned a Z3 2.8 and an E36 M3 convertible, both of which were fun cars. I've been longing for a convertible ever since, and a 500C Abarth is on my short list.

    Going to Italy this past summer, where 500s are everywhere, only reinforced that desire, so I did what any self-respecting car nut should and looked on the net for a decent forum to learn about the car, its aftermarket potential, etc... and here I am.

    Hello Hugo.
    Welcome to the Forum.
    I think that you will find everyone here very supportive and very open to sharing.
    I am an owner of a Sport Hatchback. So in that regard I will not be any help.
    That said, I think that you would find many hours of enjoyment out of the Abarth. If you have not driven one then see if you can rent one for a day or weekend so you can get the feel of the car.
    Good Luck as you move forward on your quest.

    Bonjour et bienvenue!

    I was in Quebec this past autumn visiting the Mauricie area and Trois Rivieres. The people here on the forum love their cars. However some things you should be aware of:

    1. Don't expect residual value, these are small inexpensive cars and as such do not hold value well. That's not unique to FIAT.
    2. FUN. Lots of it. These cars are a joy to drive and especially to look at. Totally unique, nothing like them on the roads.
    3. Drive what you love and love what you drive.

    bonne chance!
