What sold me on the Fiat was these red seats. I had my car choice narrowed down to the Fiat or Mini, but was leaning towards Fiat. At Fiat of Creve Coeur they had the high end model (Lounge) on the dealer floor and it had the red seats. I loved the red seats, but I wanted a stick shift and the Lounge only came in automatic. So I decided I wanted the second most expensive version (Sport.) The sales lady said for the Sport I could get brown or dark gray seats. I went to Fiat of Metro East and they explained to me the cheapest version (Pop) could be ordered with red seats, (only the Sport could not.) So I ordered a Fiat 500 Pop that day. The Mini could be ordered with red interior trim, but not most of the seat in red. I think I got the cutest car out there.
For my Civic I had a rubber chicken on the antenna. When I sold my car I took off my magnets, but left the rubber chicken. My buyer Erin looked cute driving away in my old car with the rubber chicken. I had this small rubber chicken laying around the house which I cut a hole in. This smaller chicken fits better on my smaller antenna.
Are you trading in your car? If there is nothing major wrong with the car, consider doing what I did. Find out how much your dealership will give go. Get your old car safety inspected. Add together your trade-in value, the cost of repairs, and several hundred dollars for your trouble. Post on facebook and on a bulletin board at work your car is for sale. This is what I did, and I had 3 people want to buy my car, and I would have had at least 2 more if my car was an automatic. I kept a reliable car out of the junk yard, and made the niece of a co-worker very happy. Talked with her dad an hour after she drove her new (to her) car home, and he said, "She is in love with that car."
