During these first 15000 kms the only thing I had to do with my car is to wash and fuel!

The engine is very powerful and rather full at low revs.

Roadholding is absolutely superb.

Interior is very stylish, accurated and his quality is certainly good.

My 147 1.6 120pbh progressive with lowered suspension has been excellent car to drive, with no faults except one, camshaft belt failing after 60.600 km.

Reparation was done under the guarantee.

Still it gives me a little uncomfortable feeling to think that it just might fail again. It was repaired with original parts, that has no modifications.
