After staring at Mr. Pickles' 500C several times, my wife and I decided to go test drive a 500 Sport. We really liked the car so I traded in my oversized, under utilized, and postively boring Forester on the 500 in Espresso with the 5-speed, and no sunroof.

CONGRATS Gonzo and WELCOME to the forum. sounds like you've got yourself a sweet ride there. :)

as for your name, nothing wrong with that. my wife wanted ME to be "Gumby" but as I explained to her, "Gumby" is the CAR, not me. I'm just......Kevin, aka F500. ;)

The color choice came down to Olive or Espresso. I've definitely enjoyed the car for the short 24 hours I've owned it. We will be just a one Fiat house. Our two Greyhounds will ride in my wife's GTI, which I will have to pry out of her cold dead hands.

Same here but we went with the verde oliva. Both are nice colors.

<3 my espresso sport, great choice. I was also torn between that and olive, but I also really loved mocha and chiarro, especially with the brown interior.
