595 competizione in derbys
« on: July 30, 2013, 10:58:30 am »
Hello, new to Abarth, so I thought I would break myself in gently by buying a nearly new '62 plate competizione! -was it an impulsive buy?, or is it a midlife crisis?...to be honest, I don't care, all I know is I have a mental car and I love it!. It is metallic grey with  tan leather interior, I really like the sabelt seats, but after hitting a couple of large potholes, passenger seat has developed an irritating rattle-would appreciate any help on this matter if anyone else has similar problems, thanks :wave:
Oh, I am new to forums too, so not sure I am even posting this in the right place! :whistle:

    Welcome. Dont have any ideas about the seat rattle but take comfort in knowing that im sure youll find a few more rattles the more time you spend in the car  ;D

    hi, thanks for the reply. yes I was prepared for the rattles, just didn't expect them to start so soon lol. However, I am adopting a new style of driving to accommodate this problem, so if anyone see's me weaving all over the road, no, i'm not warming up my tyres, i'm avoiding the pot holes! :thumb:

    Hey, also from derby and also new on here. I recently bought my self an abarth 500 not new but new to me 2nd lady owner. I wil probably be posting some photos of it on here so look out for them. Would be interesting to know how many abarth 500 owners are from the derby area as I don't see many on the roads. If I do I'll try and wave like a crazy person!

    hi, thanks for reply, congrats on buying a great little car, I bet it gets a few looks eh?
    I live in belper and only know of one more around here, before I had mine, I seem to remember seeing quite a few, but now I have one I haven't seen one on the roads-i'm dying to wave at a fellow arbarhtisti ! This will change on sunday as I am going to my first car meet at Hardwick Hall, why not pop up, I think there are quite a few going?
