      Wow, sounds great.

      Now what will the Fiat/Abarth version bring? This kind of driving dynamics AND Italian styling? Ohhh that could even be better.

      Cost. Diesel is taxed less per liter, making it significantly cheaper to run. The payback for upgrading to the diesel engine is a lot faster in europe. In some countries you also pay a lower tax...

      The sunroof drains are the least reliable part of the car. Consider it a blessing in disguise that there is no sunroof! We have 2 v50s and are praying that the drains don't clog.... It sucks when...
