Well,
I have just bit the bullet and put a deposit down on a New Nuevo EK of the fiat with the 160 bhp engine and the eight speed auto box.
Been reading the bumf does anyone have a child to spare to explain how all the gizmos work please.
Not due to be delivered until March next year.

By then it will be driverless, so you can sit back and read a book as you bowl along the motorway!

What a terrifying thought!!!

I'm not normally the nervous type, but I find the whole concept really scary. 

Not to hijack your thread Pete, but it looks like it's coming much sooner than expected!!

The extra gear makes a difference. With 9 they are so close the change is seamless. 

Now, anyone know the secret of keeping a Fiat running without getting engine management lights coming on every few miles? censored!

This is the problem with new tech isn't it.
When I seen all the gizmos I did wonder if I were doing the right thing.

Mmm, 300 miles and this is the second event (see my tale in the Dealership thread re Marquis). This time it’s booked in at the Fiat garage.

I bought new from Marquis once, never again.
We pass a marquis dealership and travel a further 100 + miles to the dealership that we use. lol
