    I don't wanna spend to much on a little car, plus the boss only likes the older minis

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    Actually, I like the SONIC turbo that cruised by me. That was a nice car.

    Ya, after what I saw (and heard) I'm not a fan of the Fiat. The turbo Sonic was 10x nicer IMO. [​IMG] whether I can fit...probably not.

    A ball bearing in a coffee can rattling like shit is what it sounded like as the Chick passed me. If Jeremy Clarkson likes it then who am I to disagree. Buy it, then.

    truck traded in, Got the new car!!! and I have to say.... I LOVE it! So fun to drive!! And sounds awesome!!! And I must say I got it cheap! If you're in the need of a second car or wanna down grade ( not in a bad way) to a smaller car! This might be the one for you!

    Traded the truck for it? That's too bad, but if you don't need a truck it's probably more practical. Hope it works out well for you, seem like nice cars.

    ever look at a smart car? they ran a 50$ lease a month nearing dec. dunno what they are now but my work provides me one as a company car.

    great on gas, decently quick since its almost 2000lbs, and i dont ever spend more than 25 to fill it.
