    There was a car at SG Petch waiting for a female owner to collect.
    That's the first one I've heard of.
    My wife loves driving mine and would probably have one too if we didn't need a practical car we could shove loads of stuff in (Berlingo).

    Doesn't David Yu's car actually belong to his wife too! That could be two.

    Yes, I met her!!!  :-[

    So that's three definites; SG Perch woman, Mrs Yu and Proud Wendy!

    Let's hear it for the girls.... :wave:

    Amazing how that review was test driven the same day as the rest but have to say that's probably the best review done barring HJs.

    agree with their comment on closing the boot - it does feel a bit 'half closed' when you do so, and not at all sturdy!
    Collected my A500 on Wednesday 4th March '09.

    Topgear Magazine, June, out today has 8 page "Hot Hatch Shoot-out" called "Who needs a 911".
    Golf GTI, Mini JCW, Focus RS, A500 SS.
    Not much about the 500 but a good read.
    I won't ruin it for you suffice to say that pound for pound the A500 stands up very well.
    A500 + TMC + BMC + Yellowstuff + Motul RBF600 + KW V1 + OMP & Strut Braces - rear seats = esseesse+, + Change.
    A lap or two at Cadwell, April 2011:

    I have been told that next months Auto Italia has quite a bit on the brooklands meet and also a section on Abarth.
