Great information.I just found some info for you.
The fiat 500 North american reease dates are as follows:
December 2010 for the Fiat 500. (i dont know why they always release cars in the Winter!
Looks like the Fiat Abarth will make it to the USA around October 2011.
Thats a long time to wait!
I don't see why Canadians wouldn't also get the Abarth. I suspect it will be very close to the same timing for release for both models in Canada and the US.Great information.
Since the Fiat Abarth is speculated to be released in the US around October 2011, do you think the Canadian release date will be the same? Will Canada even get the Fiat Abarth?
Regrettably, I don't think that was an invite to the show. These shows are EXTREMELY difficult to get in even if you are a member of the press. You have to submit proof you are a working automotive journalist or be a VIP.
I know several VIP types that reserved cars and they are not invited.
so.....you're a 'working automotive journalist'? just curious as to how you're planning on getting in.I plan on being there on the 20th. They should at least send us a $2 off coupon like the other local dealers do or some show swag. I can't wait for my white #181.
Well, shock my nerves, they sent out an invitation. It's not on press day, but hey, you get cocktails and one on one with the car.I received that notice too and never quite understood that.
It sounds like we are invited to the LA Autoshow on the Nov 17 opening night, which is usually reserved for the press. But when I called Fiat, they have no clue about this email. Perhaps a lack of comms between the customer service reps and PR?
The actual show for the public is Nov 19.
Hi navy48,so.....you're a 'working automotive journalist'? just curious as to how you're planning on getting in.
sorry, wasn't questioning YOU, but rather "sfv500". seemed he was more concerned about getting "discount coupons" so I thought it a bit strange if he were a journalist.Hi navy48,
Yes, I'm considered an accredited automotive journalist, registered with the media of a bunch of car companies, etc.
You have to be accredited, part of the media crew, be a VIP or be lucky enough to know someone (they still check your credentials) to get into press day.
You can see the requirements on the LA Autoshow site.
again "Fiat500USA", I apologize. my bad........so "sfv500".....you're a 'working automotive journalist'?
just curious as to how you're planning on getting in.
So anybody got a return message from their RSVP? I asked if I could bring a signifigant other......The LA auto show finally put discount tickets on the website, if anyone was interested.
Yes I got the invite last night about 10 minutes after your post Navy48, I did not know it was going to happen when I posted.
I think someone read your post or someone has a inside track with Fiat
Yes, I have already RSVP'ed for the cocktail party.
Can't wait, see you there.
