500L definitely nicer. Punto needed to pedal to the floor most of the time lol. Going to the designer outlets I presume. Plenty of stuff to hoot! Only decent watches selling there is Mont Blanc though

Ah, Iím driving a 500L in a bit. Cute car.

I have a friend whoís a Fiat fanatic, told me to dump the BMW to drive Fiat, I say I try both la.

Thatís a lot of driving!

You might have an issue as UK is definitely different hand drive from Italy. Probably have to switch cars, but itís not impossible to drive a car with wrong hand drive - just need to check traffic rules.

Donít forget to get an International Driving Permit from AA, $20 valid for one year, just mar fun have to go to the counter to do on the spot, some of these countriesí rental agencies will ask for it (ie Italy did but not UK).
i see haha ok if i need anything i text you.


i did a road trip round US, so i should be ok. haha

might want to try autobahn one day. only managed to churn 180 on NSHW on my 1.5L NA

I drove the bridge that collapsed in Genoa about 8 to 10 times when I was there in end 2014 for work trip.

It was a pretty decent driving experience in Italy, except for the trip back to Milan airport, when it got foggy in early December. A bit scary in the tiny rented Fiat...

I must say that 90% of my driving experience is done overseas, and I enjoy it much more than the short stint I had in Singapore.

Itís the only place where you signal change lane on highway, got 80% chance the driver will speed up to cockblock you.

Yeah I kena fog in UK before, in the countryside.. We were never sure when we would hit a sheep as they like to sit in the middle of the road, oblivious to cars and the like. Ended up honking now and then.. But luckily we never did.

The first time I drove overseas was in winter, and I remember we stupidly opened the windows when there was condensation within the car, when you should be turning up the heater.

The people here are pretty outraged about the bridge collapse. Nearly everyone we spoke to, ranging from our AirBNB hosts to vineyard owners at least. Can’t imagine going that way..

Sorry if I ask too much but I really like the way it was modded.
How much do you spend for modding it?
