just watched the live launch. A bit disappointing for me, but no doubt well supported by market research.
All the market-speak aside, I heard too many references to things changed for the NA market: interior and especially suspension. The euro 500 has a wonderful suspension, and if they make it soft and useless to appeal to the typical American buyer, then I will be very disappointed. And angry. And sleepless. And much less likely to buy one.
Very true; I just don't want to be disappointed with the NA version. Perhaps my concern is all misplaced, and our version will be even better.I was there last night. I watched the online show as well. Having NOT driven one in Italy in 2008 I will not have anything to compare them with. Unless you have driven a european version you won't have anything to compare them with either.
