Saw a EU64 plate Campovolo grey with chrome whisker and red wing mirrors entering St Albans

I was in a record grey car going in opposite direction and tried to give an acknowledging hand gesture  :wave:

    White A500 on the M40 around J9 or so (IIRC) heading northbound on Wednesday morning, I was in the black one, you caned it when you overtook me and the Monza sounded great!

    Haha I am almost certain this was me. You were in a 595 with a monza if I remember correctly? I followed you from Slough towards High Wycombe.

    Who ever you are. Who owns this poor unloved abarth in Matlock. Campo grey 595 a500. I drive past it at least once a month and it's NEVER washed. So sad.

    hehe, nice one!
    It is a 500 but looks almost like a 595 externally (Brembos and Monza).

    Interesting opinion,
    My car is looking a similar state at the moment, because its my daily commuter, and even after a decent clean its dirty again after 2 days with the mileage I do.. At least this chap / lass is using their Abarth, that's the main thing IMO, these cars really are made to be driven. (well technically all are  :) )
    Don't save for a rainy day when the sun is shining.

    Oh yeah. Don't get me wrong. I use my abarth every day for work but I never let it get this bad. I always see it parked up in a state. I was half tempted to knock on their door and wash it for them for my own sanity haha

    My car is in a similar state as I commute 160 miles a day and it is black so with the current weather it gets dirty within a day.
    I couldn't agree more with R66STU.
    Nadders, you are welcome to come and wash mine :P

    Same here,where my garage is it is a churned up mud bath for about 7 months of the year.
    If I cleaned it I would be doing it again a couple of days later :)
    When the weather gets better it will be spruced up again.

    Grantham Hospital car park, wonderful black Abarth with all the trim. I parked my wannabee 500 close by hoping to speak with the owner. Missed them.

    Had a nice little sprint down the A303 for ~ 5 miles with a Grey A500 with White Abarth side decals. Lady driver, driving pretty quick  :)

    was it you ?

    Grey A500 with petal wheels and Monza exhaust in Leamington yesterday evening, I passed against you.

    Then saw another red one with white strips and SS wheels further down the road.
