Well, it was an E91 Touring fully trimmed out and obviously had a big engine by the noise it was making. Custom, but close enough
Saw a 4 door Fiat 500 today

Where did you see it? Its not even on their website yet.

#9680 of 11402 Spotted...
Nov 14, 2012 (8:35 am)
...red Cadillac XTS on Napfle and Verree in NE Philly.

Saw one yesterday, another this morning. They're selling well, sales are up a little from last year but considering prices are much higher that's impressive.

Here's the Fiat. It's big:
Also saw a Yaris hybrid, and a Lexus IS - maybe a diesel model, it was pretty lowline. First IS I have seen in weeks, this isn't bad.

Looks to be about the size of a Countryman. Maybe taller, though.
Do you see a lot of tall vanlets nowadays? I remember the Xsara Picasso and Megane Scenic used to be ubiquitous.

Everywhere. Those are a dominant vehicle here, and more utilitarian ones like the Berlingo and equivalents. I really don't like the look of the older egg shaped Picasso either, dorky.
The French are no surprise very nationalistic about their vehicle choices too - the big French 3 have to be an easy combined majority, VW probably second.

Besides being generally odd, I discovered the CrossCabriolet has an odd 'skylight' over the rear seat as I followed it in to work today:
