    Hey Guys,

    I recently had the good fortune of renting a Fiat500 for one of my roadtrips here in US. Sharing some snaps of the same.

    Wow, am pleasantly surprised by the enthusiasm of you folks here! Will post more details on this beauty from home tonight.

    @Countrock, I presently am in California. The rental agency is Enterprise. I checked with the friendly lady if they stock this on a regulr basis and she told me that they have 5 Fiat 500s in varied colors. They usually keep them at the local Audi showroom, but call them in when needed. I got it for a base price of $34.99 per day.

    Fiat recently started selling the Fiat500 2012 model and looking at my neighbourhood, the response seems to be decent. The costs begin @ USD 15,500 to USD 19,500 which works out to INR 7.5L - 9.5L, a far cry from the 15L INR that Fiat India was selling it at!!
  7. I stay in California and precisely use enterprise for my car needs. Long weekend I wanted them to give me a 500 and they did not have it in hand so settled for a jeep. Now I understand where one of the few went :p

    Excellent Picture dude of the 500, The price of Fiat 500 in Kuwait is KD.:4999/- and have sold approx 35 cars, It seems the Kuwaitis are asking for the abarth version of 500!!!!
