just signed for an Espresso Sport with sunroof + navigation. It has not been delivered yet, (should be another week or so) but I did not want someone else to snatch up this car as 5 speed espressos with brown interiors are pretty hard to find here on the east coast. so, yeah... congrats to me.

CONGRATS and WELCOME to the forum. great selection. not only is the color different but 5sp's seem to be a bit on the scarce side as well.

pls post some more pics of your 500 when you get it home! :)

yeah I was working with another dealership and for whatever reason they didn't contact me when the 5 speed Espresso sport we talked about got delivered. I was watching their inventory so I had just planned to stop by that weekend but it was gone before I got there. I was not going to let this one get away so easy =)

I have been here for a while but finally got the unicorn I was chasing =P

Espresso looks great on this car.:cool:

I considered one when I was shopping for my car. Brown interior with a 5 speed as well.

I was surprised that it was easier to find Sports with brown interiors in every color other than Espresso =P

I really like Mocha and Oliva with the brown interior as well, and after seeing a Chiaro/brown in person that combo started growing on me.

But Espresso is my first choice and I am pretty thrilled to find exactly what I was looking for.

Did you test drive one with nav unit? If not you should try it first. I wanted nav in mine, but changed my mind once I saw how much it blocked the view of the road. Love the design, but bad placement.

it wasn't a special order, it has been 'in transit' for almost a month now. I had talked myself out of the sunroof thinking I would never find a 5 speed Sport in espresso with the moreno interior that wasn't over optioned.

this is the only dealer I have seen on the east coast ordering 5 speed Sports with sunroof / nav and no other options. They have a Rosso on the lot and a Grigio coming in with the same configuration.

Should of ordered from the dealer in Somerville NJ. I think it would of been much closer to PA. Plus they are very nice there.

Don't forget your break in period: keep it under 55 for the first 300 miles. That mean the entire drive home! :(

I'm taking a road trip 2 days after recieving mine, so I'm in the same boat.

Break in period? Really?
