Fiat Barchetta — good engine, accelation and torque normali brakes, but a little undersized good transmission, in spite of the anterior traction nice sound with a more open filter or without intake plastic sytem poor handling expecially with understeering, but nice control of oversteering good appearance if bringed in garage high cost of ownership

Pros: engine, appearance

Italian Beauty — My first and memborable experiance of a conv. Had some amazing drives in the lakes on sunny days. Drove it couple of times getting late into the night with the roof off (surreal experience) but stayed nice and warm from the heater. Engine revved well so performance was good. Handling was also great especially on b-road blasts. Italian build quality was always in my mind when buying this car and of course it let me down. One wiper stopped working, fog light housing broke and eventually it started leaking oil/coolant. Of course you don't buy a car like this for build quality you buy it for fun and it looks. Always turned heads when driving through towns. It was a beautiful looking car. Would recommend if you could cope with left hand drive and if you intented to get the roof off. There are too many people with roadsters that don't take advantage of this luxery.

Pros: Styling and Amazing on the right day

Cons: Left hand drive, Fiat reliability
