    Seems like every other day Fiat has some other new special edition out.

    They are just chasing the never ending MINI flavor of the month. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    Lots of folks around here commute to DC and Baltimore every day and I am seeing a lot of the 500's around lately. Seeing more MINI's too (justa's), but there is like three to one in favor of the 500 and that is what they build it to be.

    I give FIAT 10 years or so and they will be gone again because in the end its still just a FIAT.

    I like the FIAT commercial where the FIATS are killing themselves and driving off cliffs jumping off bridges and just going straight into the water to drown...I assume it's because they all feel bad that they were not born as MINI's...

    Agreed. It's hard to knock the "new kid on the block" just because he wants to be popular, too.

    But they don't drown...They end up on the shores here...And then on your lot as a trade in for a MINI. ;)

    Especially when they are espresso brown...Anyways it didn't sit on the front line long. I actually have spotted it a few times at Hampton Beach and in Portsmouth. A Fiat with Lyons Auto Group plate frames does kinda sticks out.
