This month I am providing you with a more general blog than usual, specifically aimed at helping you prepare your vehicle for the winter weather that is bound to hit the UK eventually.
Try these tips:
• Look after your windscreen. Obviously you need to keep it clean so make sure the windscreen washer is topped up.
I am pleased to see that this month sees the release of the new Fiat 500 Collezione.
As you might expect, first impressions are very good with a sophisticated and stylish blend of colours and shapes combining to ooze elegance. Available as both a hatchback and convertible, the great Fiat tradition is reflected by the inclusion of the classic Collezione badge in the tailgate.
I was pleased to hear that an Abarth 124 Spider is starring in a new music video also featuring Sting and Shaggy.
The official YouTube video amassed over 23 million views within a few days of its release promoting the single ‘Gotta Get Back My Baby’ from their album 44/876 which has already spent 17 weeks at the top of the Billboard Reggae chart.
I know that FIAT is recognised the world over as one the leading and famous car manufacturers and I am proud that we are acknowledged as specialists in servicing and maintaining their vehicles.
Here are some interesting facts about the company and their cars:
1. FIAT stands for Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino and the company was founded in Turin in 1899 by a group of investors led by Giovanni Agnelli. The word ‘fiat’ also means ‘so be it’ in Latin and the company is still controlled by the Agnelli family today.
2. In 1910 FIAT started to expand into foreign markets. The year before it had opened its first production facility on American soil in New York. It was now that it also began exporting vehicles to profitable foreign markets such as Great Britain, France, Russia and Australia.
