    That's heavy...

    Reason I like the 500 is it fits easily at a mere 3.55m long
    The 500 with an Italian Flag motive would work excellent for your restaurant. Plus Apoc will be here shortly to tell you all about how safe they are. And how you won't have a hard time getting in and out of it.

    While the Swift Sport is even more exciting, (and expensive) I think the GLS will provide all the required ticks in boxes.
    Do a test drive and remember to pick up the boot floor to see the extra storage space below. At 5.25 l/100km my son is very happy, and he does not do Miss Daisy

    Apparently should do like 6.7 per 100km.
    No ways anyone can do what they say is possible.
    Rentals also have rediculous numbers on their claimed consumption figures, which just cannot be achieved in real world driving conditions.
    Traffic is a killer for consumption.

    That's a little on the high side, even with traffic.

    But it's a very girly car. Will I be getting any in it?

    It drops well on the open road, but bumper to bumper to century city kills it.
    When she used my Landy it was doing under 4km a liter. :-(
    I suspect the wife doesn't exactly pull away slowly either :-p (but I won't dare bring that up) hehe

    Friends of mine bought the mazda 2 and the new vw polo. Small and great,price tag not so great..i think the polos are overpriced for what you get. have a look at the mazda 2 or the mazda 3 hatch. The 2017 mazda 3 hatch looks great,its a new facelift model.

    Johan I came to visit you a few Saturday's ago, forgetting that you were closed. But driving through sea point I did pity you having to park a Jeep everyday.

    For R180k you can get a 500 Twin Air out of the box with a warranty. Try to get the 60th anniversary edition. It'll be worth more when you flog it.

    I don't know. I don't think my Frenchie has gotten the memo that it should break down.

    I don't even have any rattles at 40k...

    Funny how the French cars have better warranties than the Jap cars.

    Nobody makes small cars like the Italians & the French. Everything else is a copy of what they do.

    I test drove one... and then I cursed myself for being too poor. Although, if you are a bit on the fatter side, you won't find joy with the seating.
