2012 Fiat 500 Sport: Do You Have a Towel?
September 27, 2011
So there I am. I've got a car for the weekend, and I'm stoked. But as I stand ready to hop in, I look down and see a weird pattern on the driver's seat. Now, the lighting is a little random, so I move my head back and forth trying to cancel out any lighting anomalies, but it's no use.
That's a stain.
Is there any other way to say it? The stain looks to have emanated from the crotchal region of someone who drove the car.
I told myself it was just sweat. Tell me I'm right. Please. But we've had such a cool summer...
And another thing, take a look at the fabric. Your eyes do not fool you - the fabric has a metallic quality, see the right side bolster? That's light reflected off the seat cushion. I would expect a metallic surface to have less... absorbent qualities.
Someone give me a towel. And some denatured alcohol.
And please, tell me it's sweat.
