Fiat 500 Sport Convertible : Getting the top down

It's a nice day, the sun is out - so we've got our roof down on the Fiat 500 Sport convertible. But, we've left something in the boot...

A great little car- I am upgrading to the 1.4 twin air version which have more guts. The 1.2 is a bit sluggish however it is fun to chuck about. The running cost is very cheap and they aren't overally expensive to buy. They are a fun little car which holds its value but go for the bigger engine! The sport kit which is the option I went for gives the car a much funkier, younger look with bigger bumpers, side trim and a tiny spoiler...
