Just wondering where all the SF Fiat 500 owners are, I can't be the only one in this city. :)

San Francisco Fiat owners where you at??
ummm, somewhere in San Francisco perhaps? :p


seriously, I would get with your local FIAT Studio and ask them if they would pass out info on the forum when they deliver a new 500.

best way to get the word out right from the get-go! :)

I've been looking online for a Fiat Studio in San Francisco, I've read online that it's on Van Ness. Couldn't seem to find it last time, maybe I drove right by it. Any info on it?

A studio just opened in Berkeley (or Oakland, I'm not sure). I was told by a salesman in Fremont that one will be opening in San Francisco at some point.

I have been surprised at how few of these cars I am seeing here in San Francisco. Given the number of Mini Coopers and Smart Cars you see in SF, it seems like the perfect place for the 500.

Thanks guys for the info. The Fremont guys are great so far, and I know for a fact that to-be Abarth owners have put down deposits there.

I'm seeing the 500s more often than usual now. Up to 1 a week for sure. Mostly silver?

The reason you don't see any owners in SF is because nobody here wants to drive 30 miles to buy a car, get it serviced, etc. SF with its tiny streets and tinier parking spaces should have been in the top 2 markets for the 500 in the US. The fact that Fiat still hasn't gotten its act together to open a dealership in the city does not bode well for the company's return to the US.

I also live in Western Addition/NOPA and I'm pretty sure I've driven past your parked car a few times. Near Fulton? (Hope you don't consider that a privacy breach.)

I've also seen a Verde Oliva parked on the same block as me. So fun to see them around our neighborhood! Is it just me, or do you find yourself hoping to come upon parking spots too small for anyone else? Parking's pretty abundant right out front of my place, and I often find myself wanting a challenge!

Does south bay count? Seeing more of them myself now - red is popular since the 2 I see regularly are a rosa sport and a pop. All within a 4 street radius :)

Tri-Valley East bay here.. I've seen a lady with a white PE down the street. Not sure if she lives near here but we were driving the same route one morning for my commute and she and her passenger honked and waved.

The infestation has begun. I'm seeing them everywhere, age groups being all over the place.
There are studios in Fremont and San Jose.
Cool.
