Ciao belli :)
Hi, I'm Giacomo from Monza, Italy. I' 34 and I'm an engineer.
I don't have any Fiat but in my family we have a 2013 500c and a Punto.
Last time I was in the US it was in 2008, but I went for 3 summers in a Summer Camp in Winsconsin and Michigan when I was 11-12-13.
I really enjoy American frienship.
Thanks for accepting me

thank you for welcome I think you better enjoy the 500 than the Punto down there. It feels more Italian traditional, like Pizza and Spaghetti.

well, now I have a fast pic of the 500c, made yesterday.
The Punto is at my mother's house, I will upload it later on.
Other cars I have are not Fiat, they're a BMW M3 e46, M1.35 and an old Vw bug.
Which transmission do you mostly use the 500 down there in the US? Manual or Automatic? Or both?

Here is the Mum's Punto.
90% Fiat are manual. They're for middle class empty pocket people.
Up to early 2000s almost nobody in Italy had automatic gearbox cars, people were old minded.
After 2000, year by year traffic in bigger cities became mad, auto-gearboxes improved, so people change mind.
But the middle class with empty pocket man still buys manual to save that 1000-2000 €.
Also petrolheads are hard to get used to autos. They keep going manual up to when their left knee, passed 30-35, begin to hurt.

I don't have my own Abarth yet, so I don't have the need and the chance to make mods as I'm used to do on all my cars.
Probably I'll get one by the end of this year and I'll be more present in forums.
Can I advert the steering wheel spacer in the market section?
