Well, your Fiat's trunk is superior to an 06 BMW 3 series, which in REALLY GOOD SHAPE still makes it stupid hard to open the trunk WITH THE MECHANICAL KEY whenever the battery dies.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
