Hello, I am Jamie, 21 from Hastings.

I got my first Cinquecento as my first car when i was 18 and joined Clubcento(2008)
At the time i was looking for a Nissan Micra as both my parents had always had Nissans, But a friend at college offered me a shiney blue 1993 899CC SX for £300, so i went for it and loved it. My dad wasn't so keen at first but soon got the bug.

Here it is, Brum.

At stanford Hall 2009.

Then in 2010 i went back to college for my 2nd year and desided to leave my job as it was taking to much of my time, and sold Brum to mum.

After college was over and i got myself another job i searched ebay for a Cinquecento sporting i wanted either red or yellow and found a nice red 1997 sporting witch i bought without veiwing or test driving the car for £450.

Here is Henry(after a month of spending ever spare hour working on him)

Month later i was driving around some lanes and a 4x4 came around a bend on the wrong side of the road, i swerved cliped a curb and rolled into a ditch!

Next i got a 1997 Blue 899CC S
I got for £150 taxed and MOT'd! drove brilliantly intill everything eletric stoped working. replaced the sensors with no luck, checked all the wireing and couldn't find anything and had to sell before the next MOT as i had no off street parking.

Here is Percy

Took a brake from cars for awhile and this year i went back to ebay looking for a Cinquecento and found a 2004 Fiat Panda someone was braking! So i gave them a call and they agreed to let me take it away for £850 with failed powersteering, Fidled with the wireing pluged it all back in and the powersteering started to work an hasn't failed since!

So this is my current little fiat Yoda

Hello guys, My name is Mischa and I'm from partridge Green


I'm 19 years old and I have a 2002 seicento sporting named Dom Tommassino and I've had it since I passed my test march last year.

After driving my car for 2 weeks the cambelt tensioner went on a night out and was left overnight. After a month of huffing and puffing and prayer I got the car mended, only to have a few more issues whiched sidelined it for 8 months :O

But then, just one week ago, the car g8t fixed in a garage and now it's in my possession once again :D

Hi people, I'm Patrick and I bought my little Fiat initially just as a cheap 1st car from a friend who had one from a part-ex at his garage. Since adding little personal touches I have come to love it and will now be owning it even after a new car is on the drive :) its great fun!

Yeah they were an optional extra on the Abarth models or the Schumacher models so I am told? Bought them as soon as I saw them.

What a lovely looking soliel I own a purple one with a 1242 engine, funny enough I've never driven it with the roof back but I've driven my seicento soliel with it back and is great fun...
