“My brother and I have owned three of these cars. An...”

Written on: 09/09/2010

My brother and I have owned three of these cars. An 81 and two 87's. The current one, an 87, I picked up last year after the bug to have another one hit me again. It has some body rust but nothing I can't handle. It had been heavily abused and required some work to get it back on the road. I probably payed too much for it but hey, car lust is hard to ignore. It has 95K miles. Many things did not work when I got it but gradually most everything has begun to work again. Almost magically… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/10/2008 by Larcen (2 reviews written)

I have inherited my Fiat x1/9 and have known it for as long as I can remember, my granddad had it from new in 1983 and left it to me, and I am currently restoring it as it has been left in a garage for 16 years. But I am amazed how little there is wrong with it, couple of cables are a bit brittle and the engine is dirty but I have known them to start first time after being left outside for 7 years, the engine has to be the most indestructible I have ever seen. I am also very impressed with how… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/09/2007 by xdan (1 review written)

I've owned 2 of these beauts, one in the eighties and promised myself another. I like the ability to potter along and if the mood takes to tease the so-called hot hatch kiddies. I can personally vouch that in the Cumbrian lanes Scooby drivers do get rather irate! The ease of engine maintenance is noticeable by its' absence. But find a good one and stay on top of the rust (Waxoil etc.) and they give years of fun. Wider and lower rubber is a must as 165 section really isn't enough. But avoid… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/07/2007 by bbatstone (2 reviews written)

I love the Fiat X1/9. It is the second car I purchased at 17 years of age and refuse to sell it even though a two seaters practicality diminishes when you start a family. It is by far the best handling and best feeling car I have driven. You can't help but smile as the more expensive sports cars have to slow down for a 90 degree turn at 60kph as you take it without chirping the tires, and it's just as fun to break the back end loose and drift it easily under constant control because of the mid… Read Full Review

“If you are a lively driver modify your 1500 thus: 1)...”

Written on: 27/07/2006 by RichardBradford (2 reviews written)

If you are a lively driver modify your 1500 thus: 1) fit Koni adjustable shocks and lower the suspension an inch all round; 2) fit 185/55 rear tyres and 175/60 fronts; 3) put on Tarox brake discs and pads and use silicon dot 5 brake fluid - helps avoid brakes jamming; aeroquip hoses a useful addition; 4) add a free flow exhaust - Ansa 4 pipe works really well.
I demonstrated the stability of this set up by deliberately locking the brakes at 110mph for a moment. Almost nothing will touch it on a… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/05/2005 by Jasonnaicker (10 reviews written)

I had one of these Fiat X-1/9 Sports Cars for about 4 years, I used it on a daily basis for commuting and work carrying out visits. Drive her gently and the fuel economy is great, heavy right foor and it goes down (but still bearable). There is a bit of a knack in taking the roof off, but a bit of practice soon sorts that out. Beware of drain covers when caning it round corners (I took out a crash barrier). They are built like brick outhouses (a friend mangled a big Volvo with his - lifted… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/04/2005 by steveph (2 reviews written)

Ive had 3 Fiat X1/9s and I consider them one of the best designed sports cars in their class. I've wrecked one and take my word for it if you are ever involved in an accident you have a better than average chance of survival, they are built TOUGH. God help the poor person who hits one with a modern car… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/09/2004 by Paulkbrum (1 review written)

I've had three Fiat X-1/9 sports cars and the current one for 16 years. Compared to modern sports cars like the MX5 and MG it still has many advantages. It is a cheap, fun car - far better than Midgets, Spitfires & MGBs if you want a car to restore. I've looked at replacing it a few times but I've not seen anything that is fun practical sports car, ie that you can carry luggage (it has two boots), is fun to drive, and it looks good… Read Full Review

The Fiat X-1/9 car has to be the fun car I've ever driven. For all you Honda fans you could probably compare it to the fun sporty size of a 89 crx SI but with more umffff....Great car, very quick, definetly recommend it… Read Full Review
